    If you're impeded while running at speed then there's a good chance you'll be knocked over or lose your footing. Martin has been given a reputation as a diver by the Scottish media and their poor analysis of slow motion replays, which give a very distorted impression of what's going on. Asian Cup referees probably don't watch Sportscene.
    Nah not having that, it might seem as if i'm coming across as anti Martin Boyle, but that is not the case, in fact i wish he was with us in the Euros, he is a fantastic player when on form.

    He does recently have a habit of going down easily, and from that video he clearly in my opinion is fouled then dived. He could have stayed on his feet, but decided not to.

    If we had a player sent off for the challenge on Boyle I would be going bananas.

    Boyle had become a much better and more effective tube player when Neil Lennon was manager and cured him of his propensity for falling over. I canít fathom why he has returned to those days of tumbling over at the slightest brush with an opponent

    Well! They're all at it nowadays aren't they? The idea that Boyle runs so fast that the merest featherlite touch is enough to send him flying is laughable. I don't recall Arthur diving about much except when he scored with that header in the 79 cup final replay. Oh god!

    Great pass from Irvine for Boyleís goal. I hope they are both at ER when the season

    After that cup final non performance I'm not fussed for either.

    That would be silly as itís a clear foul.

    The fact that thereís folk here that canít see itís a foul shows why he should be going down, too often fast players donít get fouls like that by trying to stay on their feet

    Why is a Hibs fan starting a thread about Boyle diving in an international match he scored in?

    Not a lot of contact but not a dive. From the reverse angle looks like his right foot slips, don't know if the tug was enough to cause that but don't think he could stop going down.

    I am the first to say that at times boyle goes down far too easily but having watched this, his right foot slips and thats why he falls. I dont think thats a dive or a sending off either.

    I honestly donít know what the fuss is about. Before watching the video, I thought the thread title was suggesting that Boyle was sent off for diving.

    He's conned you as well as the ref then. No way his foot slips. Boyle manufactures the "slip" to make it look like he's been fouled. No divot comes up from his right foot "slipping". In fact it looks like his right foot barely touches the turf. The divot that does come up is from his knee when it lands. If the turf was soft enough for that to happen you would expect a bigger divot from the "slip". The sheepish look on his face afterwards tells a tale too. He has seriously cemented his reputation as being a diver and con artist with this. Hugely disappointing and a disgrace to the Hibs jersey. So much so I'm all for cashing him in.

    Starting to get a bit of the wrong kind of reputation is our Martin.

    He was through on goal, why would he dive?

    Correct decision.

    Absolutely. As a forward you are taught to cut across a centre back

    The funniest part for me is the rage in the comments over the "umpire"

    But yeah, dive and a half, I'd be going radio rental if that was given against Hibs, but also I'd be having a go at the defender for giving him the opportunity with the hand on the shoulder.

    I must be getting old.Itís taken me until the end of the thread to realise it wasnít Boyle that was sent off.

    Just watched the clip for the first time and though there was a slight tug on the shoulder, to me that was another embarrassing dive from Martin.

    I truly do not understand your question.
    The You Tube vid asks if it was red card or not. Is there an issue with starting a thread to see what the general opinion is.
    And him scoring is totally immaterial.

    In Nepal you're meant to be a climber not a diver.

    So you agree it was a foul then.

    They mustn't have VAR at these championships otherwise this would have been sorted by the esteemed watchers who get all the decisions correct.

    Thatís what Irvine can do play that killer pass for Boyle to run into opening up defences
    Why that wasnít utilised in the Cuo Final I have no idea

    I think the problem is how he's perceived to have gone down. Fwiw I think he slips but someone fairly lighting pulling on your shoulder, even if your running at speed, doesn't naturally result in you falling to the ground.

    It's not like riding a tackle where the contact is low and you have to make an effort to stay on your feet. There is no natural way the contact in this case leads to you falling down. Therefore "going down" in effect is a dive.

    No. Not right, actions of a total conning pansy. Yes there's a foul but red card?? Come on, you see it all over his face when he gets up, he knows he's conned everyone and gained an advantage. Should have been stronger than that. Rapidly getting fed up with his antics because when he is scythed properly we will lose out because Scottish refs are wise to his antics

    Why would it not have been a red card?

    Martin Boyle has been getting scythed properly for years without getting protection from Scottish refs.
