Pardew slams player for dive
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has berated his own player James McArthur for a dive in the Palace's 2-1 win at Stoke on Saturday, saying the midfielder should feel embarrassed.
"He dived," Pardew said. "He should be embarrassed. He's a great professional and that's unlike him.
"We keep moaning about diving but it grates on me. I was surprised but it shows what pressure does to players.”
