    Yeah, whenever someone kneels and puts their weight on my ankle, rolling it at the wrong angle, I act like a real man (copyright courtesy of Tony Gale) try desperately to stay on my feet and say, "my goodness that smarts".

    I've told you a billion times not to exaggerate.

    That's what I recollect, which is why I questioned the roll, how do you roll if you land flat like that ?

    Good reply & v true. How do all these know alls get to “feel” the pain of impact fouls in order to determine how gently the victim should fall. Anyway, we’ve learnt from experience that if you’re too honest & try & stay in your feet you get f*** all. If you fall gently like Sterling & Kun - you still get f*** all. We’ve been denied many stonewall pens over the last few seasons simply for not being theatrical.

    It's a form of expression of pain. Like punching turfs.
    When you get your ankle clipped and your body is in motion your trajectory follows the direction .

    He lifted his knee s his ankle, not an easy thing to do flat on your face.

    Yes. It clearly rolled his ankle the wrong way. Nearly everyone's immediate instinctive and non controllable reaction would be to shout 'aaaragh' (or a close approximation). Maybe the full length was unnecessary...but then again we've been turned down stonewallers when the player has tried to be more honest (Walker on Sterling). I'm glad Silva did it and would encourage him to do so again.

    Exactly. During a match if u so much as sprain your ankle,slightly, the instinct is to hop/leap whatever,to take the weight off the injured ankle.and it hurts.a lot.a shooting pain which you know about ...if,as Silva did,u have your ankle hit by an onrushing keeper,causing you to roll your ankle under the weight of the blow..that shooting pain is about 10 times worse ,and no way can you stand on your injured foot.it would be impossible
    Any ex player,jnc shaun Dyche ,who has properly looked at that incident amd suggested over reaction,is imo not telling the truth,and simply looking to continue the media spin against City.

    I see Dyche is still going on about it today, determined to label Bernardo a cheat.
