Gareth Bale does not dive

According to Harry Redknapp, you (yes you) need to stop having a go at poor little Gareth Bale. He doesn't dive, alright?

I googled "Bale dive" and the photograph above appeared, now I don't know what to believe. Bale has been criticised by Arsenal fans and other people for the way he successfully won a penalty. He very cleverly brushed his legs against the goalkeeper, his hands went out and over he went. It was a thing of beauty really. 

Ex referee Graham Poll said that Mike Dean, the match official was fooled into giving the decision. Mike Dean is also accused of celebrating Spurs first goal, something he has been accused of before. I'm sure it's just a coincidence, referees hate football and would never support a team.

Redknapp will not be speaking to Bale and doesn't believe he needs to. After all, he gets kicked from "pillar to post every week" so therefore he's allowed to dive. We all know it's only those pesky foreigners that dive anyway. British players are "clever", they don't cheat. This game happened almost a week ago and Arsenal won 5-2. Who fucking cares? Why are we still talking about this? Why am I talking about this? Where am I? Are those my feet?
