    Which diving thing? And don't say Grosso because like it or not, it was a foul.

    Ah yes. Those of us following Crystal Palace never quite understood how our reserve right back to Paul Hinshelwood circa 1980 ended up in central defence for his country six years later.

    So it was you who wrote this in his Wikipedia page then?

    "He holds the English record for most yellow cards, three, in a single World Cup tournament, which he achieved in the 1986 FIFA World Cup. During that World Cup, Fenwick was also noted for being passed by Diego Maradona as Maradona scored the "Goal of the Century". There's some conjecture that Fenwicks slide tackle touched the ball last and therefore should be credited with the goal instead of Maradona. He was also known for being totally pony."

    Actually I've argued the own-goal instead of goal of the century to Maradonna more than once, but I thought it was Terry Butcher making the last ditch attempt at a slide tackle.

    He played for the contact, there's a difference.

    Was a ridiculous challenge to make, no matter how easily Grosso went down, throwing yourself into a challenge like that is asking for trouble.

    As I said a thousand times if the roles were reversed, an Australian player would of gone down and got the penalty.
