Yeah I agree dude I'm NOT liking the diving that Bents does all to frequently, as you rightly point out this ISN'T something that he needs to do at all.

We did well with 10 mne. We were still the better team. BEntley moving into the middle was the telling factor. And i agree with you worbo... he doesnt need to do it.
