Oh dear, Ben White

If you didn’t see the altercation, and we use the word very loosely, between Pervis Estupinan and Ben White, and only saw the Arsenal man, prostrate on the Amex turf clutching his “injured” throat, you’d think that Albion’s left-back had performed some sort of death-strangle on him.

That wasn’t the case. White put in a display of fakery on a par with Rivaldo’s infamous Oscar-winning performance in the 2002 World Cup.

The piss-taking hasn’t stopped since…

If the Premier League and PGMOL want to get some credit in the heavily overdrawn VAR bank, they should be using it to clamp down on flagrant attempts to trick officials. Is there a fan, anywhere, who wouldn’t be supportive of this?
