Tony Pulis bemoans cheating foreigners and praises cheating Peter Crouch

STOKE City manager Tony Pulis is not only the force that binds an entire city and helps sickly children, he is the paragon of English football. Following his die’s defeat to Chelsea, Pulis opined:

“Ivanovic’s one in the first half is laughable and the lad Oscar, who’s a fabulous player. This is England. We’re playing in England, we’re not playing in Europe. And we can’t watch people just fall over and not talk about it. That’s the disappointing thing. We should highlight it and keep highlighting it and keep highlighting it. There are certain players in the Premier League who have got a reputation and referees know that if you touch them then they’ll fall down or go down as quickly as they can.

“The people that do it, just keep highlighting it, keep showing it, because it’s a part of the game that I don’t think we should stomach and we don’t talk about enough.”

Cheating is not the English way. As he said when Stoke City and Engand’s Peter Crouch handled the ball on his way to scoring against Manchester City:

“I haven’t see it, but if Peter’s got away with it then brilliant...”

Tony Pulis is English.
