I'm way behind on this - still trying to work out how Helgusson got a penalty out of Luiz.

So... Tony Pulis fines two of his own players for diving. Well done to him - finally someone with the balls.

"Tony Pulis determined to stamp out diving ‘disease’ among Crystal Palace players with fines for Jerome Thomas and Marouane Chamakh"

Perhaps it's uncharitable of me, but I couldn't help but wonder how much of the fine is for diving and how much is for it not working/getting caught doing it:

Thomas had a chance to win the match for the Eagles yesterday, for what would have been another valuable three points in their fight for Premier League survival.

But the winger instead opted to take a tumble in the box rather than shoot at goal – a move which infuriated Pulis and the Palace fans.
