Top 10: Worst dives

8) Morten Gamst Pedersen, Arsenal vs Blackburn (2009)

No card from the referee, but the punishment for this dive is the squandering of a golden chance at the Emirates. Through on goal until a bad touch means his chance is gone, suddenly the winger's legs are too as he tumbles to the the turf. The two-yard gap between him and Bacary Sagna matters not to the naughty Norweigan, who despite glancing backwards to check his distances, tries his luck anyway. Needless to say Pedersen's protests were waved away by referee Phil Dowd, much to his (and FFT's) dismay.
