Does Anyone Know Why Andy Johnson Constantly Gets Booed At Away Grounds?

At Sunderland Today I Have Know Idea Why But He Was Constantly Booed.

Somehow It Could Be This "Rep" He Has For Diving.

Maybe Its Cozz Hes A Good Player

Whichever Way Im Confused =S

Everyone thinks that he dives. I know so many people that dispise him. Its unfair really. Refs think he has a bad rep as well which is not good becasue he now gets perfectly viable penaltys turned away. How people can say he's still dives to win penaltys when we havn't had a penalty in the league all season bemuses me

yesterday it was because the Ref made some shocking decisions in the first 20 mins, not giving Sunderland a few free kicks, then Johnson went down under a semi hard tackle and got a Free kick. The crowd were on his back all game after that.

Never Have I Seen To This Day Andrew Johnson Dive. Really Annoys Me Wen People Says He Does Cus He Doesnt And Never Has. I Have Seen Him Go Down Easily But Thats Different He Never Looks For The Penalty Tho.

I Cant Stand It Wen People Say He Dives!!!

Torres Is The Diver On Merseyside Along With Gerrard!!!

I cant recall the Game, but he has had a cheeky little dive, and your calling Torress a diver when personally i think he does all he can to stay on his feet, And also are you forgetting our Very own Mikel Arteta?

Have to say torres looks to stay on his feet most of the time, but he has taken a few dives in the box when there hasnt been contact. Gerrard is awful for it, and will be caught out by it im sure one day.

Arteta Is different, he will go down with minimal contact. If it was in the park and one of ur mates did it to u, it wouldnt be a foul, but he does look for the freekick alot, but i wouldnt say he is a diver.

Johnson is different, he doesnt dive at all. He is so quick, that any little knock throws him off balance, i think he tries to stay on his feet as much as possible these days.

It doesnt matter what he does theirs no way a Ref is going to give him a penalty even after the Blackburn game???? where the defender just kicked him off he ground.

Torres did make a bit of a meal of the Materazzi challenges it has to be said, but I wouldn't call him a diver, the same way as when Arteta gets knocked he goes down, which I think is fair enough. Gerrard is obviously a diver, I think we can all recognise that one. I have to also say that AJ used to go down pretty dubiously in his early Everton career, recently he has tried staying on his feet more and he obviously should have won about 10 legitimate pens in his time with us, but there are still occasions he goes down easily, he just doesn't appeal for them anymore. Then again, the way football is going it appears that nearly every player goes down if someone brushes them in a dangerous area.
