Did Steven Gerrard dive against Blackburn? (with video evidence)

Rafa Benitez was falling over himself to praise Steven Gerrard in the run-up to his skipper’s 500th Liverpool appearance, against Blackburn on Saturday.

Ironic, that, as Stevie G was falling over himself to win the match for Rafa:

From the side angle, it certainly looks like a crafty dive by Gerrard – it wouldn’t be the first time he’s gone down in the box despite minimal contact. And even if there was contact, it appears he was looking for the pen (something many players do, alas), which is hardly commendable either.

Dive/No dive – what do you think?

“No more than I’d expect from a bin dipper with a wee forehead. Next time we meet on the battlefield, I’ll no let him get away with that falling down shite. I’ll keep him tucked in my shorts, like a Scouse Action Man. That’s what’s going to happen.”

  1. he is the biggest hypocritic ever. hes a cheat. nobody will say anything about his dives though will they? just because he’s mr england

  2. paul says:

    what a great big cock he is, the cheating horror he needs to be banned right now for 10 games an make an example of him, but nothing will happen because he is mr england, i hope someone goes right through him to teach him a lesson

  3. rowan says:

    Everyone dives get over it. Gauranteed who ever you support you have someone who regulary dives. we have gerrard and he’s pretty good at it too. I think we should encourage cheating. we might win a world cup if we did!

  4. C says:

    Obvious dive. Discgraceful, but very common in modern football. At least he’s not as awful as Drogba or Ronaldo. Small comfort tho.

  5. Anonymous says:

    he triped

  6. African Rover says:

    I really would have thought someone would have said something about this but it appears he can get away with anything on or off the pitch.

  7. richard says:

    rooney does it

    How many Years Ago did that fat twat for United do one of the worst dives i have ever seen in my life ?

  10. sai says:

    Man utd rooney and ronaldo dives a lot than gerrard! stupid Man utd fans!

  11. kitamura says:

    man utd fans didnt look at their ugly face rooney who dives a lot too! i support sai’s comment! man utd fans really did know their face is ugly! shame on you all man utd fans!

  12. African Rover says:

    Difference is other players do it and it’s a big thing but not Gerrard. (Quality player though)

  13. […] Now all it needs is Stevie G’s effort against Blackburn. […]

  14. paul says:

    rowan u propa cock u think we should encourage cheating typical kopite deluded prick an i support everton actually u stupid prick, cheat’s should be punished not encouraged its stupid people like you who ruin the great game, go get a life an learn to play football you norwegian tw*t!!

  15. Chringle says:

    “GERRARD NEVER DIVES. HE IS A CONSUMATE PROFESSIONAL. HE IS A SHINING EXAMPLE OF CIVILITY, HONESTY AND DECORUM. HIS INTEGRITY IS MATCHED ONLY BY HIS RIGHTEOUS STRUGGLE FOR PURITY. HE FIGHTS FOR THE DISSOLUTION OF CORRUPTION IN THE MODERN GAME.”

    These quotes were taken directly from his autobiography.

  16. rowan says:

    Chill your beans Paulo! typical Everton fan. cant take a joke. mind you getting relegated isnt that funny is it! ha ha. Cheating is part and parcel of the game. the sooner us brits get better at it the sooner we will win a major trophy! now get off your high horse and get real. Miserable toffee nosed wanker!

  17. Tinez says:

    Bit of a laugh that the ‘republic of mancunia’ would try and discredit a player who has taken a dive.

  18. paul says:

    ur not joking tho u would bum gerrards ass if he fell with no one around an got a pen, an were u from ireland who got cheated out of the world cup, was that fair no! an ok were getting relegated sure think just like your going to win the league i guess! im not on a horse mate im on a chair an get real are you serious, liverpool fans are the ones lving in there own world THIS YEAR IS OUR YEAR 1993-PRESENT!

  19. rowan u fuckin armchair fan dont know what ur chatting. the things gerrard has said in his autobiography and he goes and dives like that week in week out. he lied in his autobiography about the baby being his aswell

  20. paul says:

    THE BABY’S NOT YOURS, OH STEVEN GERRARD THE BABY’S NOT YOURS, DNA! DNA! CHEATING HORRIBLE INBRED.

  21. rowan says:

    Paul & bob, What are you both talking about. Neither of you can construct a sentence properly. So Steven Gerrard’s kid is not his own, who gives a shit, not me, he could be Rooney’s for all I care! As for armchair fan, again, not sure what this has to do with Gerrard diving. As for the France Ireland point, well this demonstrates my point perfectly, France cheated and they are going to the WC. Ireland didn’t and they will spend their summer at home. I know which one I would rather be had it been England!

  22. juan says:

    Haha a Man United fan having a go a Gerrard, theres a new one……….ironic really the minute Ronaldo leaves United fans become ambassadors of fair play. How quickly they forget he spent more time face down in the dirt than he did on two legs. Over the years Roy Keane got away with breaking legs (Alf Inge Haaland style), harassing officials to the point of them toppling over and you call Liverpool players cheats. Van Noss gaves classes on the quickest way the hit the ground. As for United in general, did they not go 10 years without having a penalty given against them at Old Toilet (I forgot sure United control the FA). Fergie is the only manager allowed call a referee fat while only receiving a slap on the wrist. Im sure hes at home right now getting those Christmas cards ready, tapping up some other poor f*cker that he can exploit. I see he f*cked over the young Bosnian lad he exploited to get his teammate to join United.

  23. BitterBlue says:

    Cheating little turd is always at it week in week out.

  24. paul says:

    ROWAN IS A WANKER, ROWAN IS A WANKER NA NA NA NA, OH AN BY THE WAY I WOULDN’T WANT ENGLAND TO CHEAT THERE WAY TO A WORLD CUP WIN, SIMPLY BECAUSE TO WIN THE WORLD CUP YOU HAVE TO BE THE BEST AND SO IF YOU WANT TO CHEAT FUCK OFF TO FRANCE YOU INBRED KNOBHEAD

  25. i was callin u an armchair fan u scruff. the thing with gerrard is he says in his book about diving and that he wouldnt have it from his players.

  26. the zoo says:

    What’s the point in this article? If you look at the video you can see that the defender got none of the ball and a bit of Gerrard. More shit from Who Ate All The Pies.

  27. the zoo says:

    I hope Thierry Henry dicks all over England in the World Cup

  28. rowan says:

    Nice to see a bit of maturity there paul. my point is people cheat, and yes bob people lie. thats the real world boys you’d better get used to it. If Rooney wins a pen through diving in world cup i doubt either of you will care and neither will I.

  29. paul says:

    i would care actually because i hate the fat little rat an the baby’s not his either, cheats deserve to die so if you wanna be a cheat you know what to do fuck face

  30. mizman says:

    paul ur so cool

  31. rowan says:

    have you skived off school today Paul? cheats deserve to die….bit harsh… how about ‘elbows’ fellani who cheats every time he leaps in the air. Did Cahills brother have the same opinion as you and thats why he murdered them….? honestly. talk about over reacting. make sure you are back in school tomorrow. going by your grammar and spelling you really need every piece of help you can get!!

  32. Quincy says:

    Dive, even a Liverpool fan (me) sees that!!

  33. paul says:

    no mate i aint in school im dyslexic so now youencourage cheats and abuse dyslexia nice one ya tit what about carra the smack head who grabs anone he is near or ngog who dives you, an maybe that barman cheated on his playlist so gerrard WAS FIGHTING FOR THE DISSOLUTION OF CORRUPTION IN THE MODERN BAR! now fuck off you sheepshagging fuck face kopite

  34. anon says:

    Gerrard is world class, but hes gotta stop cheating even though ngog is far worse but no one gives a sh*t about who is and who aint his kid WOW HE GOT ADOPTED – not

  35. emz says:

    its not his diving that makes him a twat cause loads of players do it, its the fact that he makes out he never has or would cheat when he clearly does.dickhead

  36. megaman789 says:

    Can’t this video was posted by a stupid manure fan. THEIR TEAM HAS ALWAYS HAD THE MOST NO. OF DIVERS.

  37. rowan says:

    Paul. Dyslexia is not an excuse for writing incomprehensible drivel, talking shit and generally making no fucking sense. It’s simply means you have trouble spelling! Maybe if you stopped looking for excuses as to why you are such a fucking moron and went to school you wouldnt spend all your time losing arguments to assholes like me on stupid internet sites with antagonistic titles that are simple there to get you to look at their website!

  38. C says:

    Well the comments sure turned out good. Gotta love football fans.

  39. Bluebybirth says:

    the twat did this and blew the game for us bluenoses last november i think…diving twat, foolish really. it happens though, at least one player at each club has done it.

  40. paul says:

    Horrible scum bag twat like most scousers

  41. Rooney does not dive so admit it yes ronaldo does but he still caned you scumbags every time he walked on to the pitch so there also gerrard is a cheat is a diver get over it

  42. Aidan says:

    I think its not a dive,cause i think his leg was stucked or something,then he tripped look properly and stop saying he is shite or anything,he is a living legend better than frank lampard
