Just watched Oscar dive to try and win a penalty, when it would have been easier to stand up and score. He was booked for the dive.
I do hope the press give Mr "I hate diving" Mourinho a hard time, and that "the lying one" will actually admit his player is a cheating diver.
I doubt they or he will though.

He had nowhere to go other than to admit Oscar deserved a yellow, but if you read the transcript of the interview further.....
"It was a fair yellow card but I also accept Oscar's explanation to me. When he saw the goalkeeper coming he is thinking 'penalty and red card' but the goalkeeper has a lot of experience and stopped".
So although he is cornered, and almost forced to admit that Oscar deserved a yellow card, he still defends the fact that Oscar was trying to cheat to get an opposition player sent off and gain a penalty, rather than score a goal.
The headlines, when Mourinho wrongly accused Suarez of diving (to divert attention from appalling referee decisions which greatly favoured Chelsea) were full page, the admission by Mourinho that his player deserved a yellow card, was written in a very small section of the match report.
There was absolutely no mention on the BBC Sport's website, or in any of the papers (that I saw) that Mourinho's claims that Suarez dived were false.
None of this is racist or anti-Liverpool. Websites and papers are there to get hits and sell product. Suarez is box office. A bad story is more interesting than a good story. Mourinho to a lesser extent is box office. Mourinho providing a negative story about Suarez - especially one everyone knows to be false and everyone knows Mourinho knows is false - is media gold. That's the only reason it gets reported. Your posts on this thread are evidence of their success.
I've also heard and read loads of positive stuff on Suarez on the bbc this year. He's widely regarded as the best player in the PL at the moment.
Come, come BL, surely you understand by now that EVERYTHING is anti-Liverpool?
No signature worth mentioning...
OK. I'll shut up.
Grud, I HATE THAT SONG!!!

Do you really believe that everyone knows that what Mourinho said is false?
Do you think that someone who saw nothing of the game, that then read the story in the paper and on the BBC website, believes that the accusation was false, when his accusation was not contradicted by the paper or website?
I don't believe that to be true. The adage that there is no smoke without fire holds true for most people, and I'm afraid that's true on this occasion.
I'm shutting up now, but you have not convinced me in any way that I am wrong.
The hypocrisy of the man is surpassed only by his arrogance.
Never a truer word typed.
Strange also that some are surprised by the Chelsea team's lack of adventure as the last Mourhino Chelsea team was exactly the same.
The season is continuing to be unpredictable. Norwich hold Man City, Arsenal beaten black and blue, and as for the little white horses... (without a recognised in-form striker).

Hughton out still for me!

You're being too hard on Chris. I've always rated Hughton, although he's not a top Premier League manager. But he will keep you away from relegation (just). Norwich will always be a lower-mid Premier team.
Last season I was backing him to keep you up, and I've not seen anything different to change my mind this term. You will end up 12th to 15th in the table. And that's great for Norwich.
Our last four games are the difference. Because of our run in we need four wins from the next nine games to survive. Which isn't going to happen.
