MANCHESTER, England -- Ashley Young has been warned that his penchant for diving would not be accepted. Steve Yzerman Jersey . It doesnt appear hes learning his lesson. The Manchester United winger woke up to back-page headlines of "Conman" and "Ashleys New Dive Shame" on Wednesday after his latest theatrical tumble earned United a penalty, which was missed by Robin van Persie in the 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad in the Champions League. Young was also condemned by former United captains Roy Keane and Ray Wilkins and was the target of heavy criticism on social networking sites, with the latest incident further sullying his reputation. "This is as bad for me as all these over-the-top tackles were getting at the moment because that is a conning of the referee," Wilkins said on Sky Sports. "Hes getting a bad name." Youngs image was once of a talented winger who had a fearsome cross and was one of English footballs leading dead-ball exponents. It earned him a big-money move to United from Aston Villa in 2011. Now, two years into his career at United, his name is invariably accompanied by the words "dive" or "cheat." Luis Suarez and Gareth Bale have faced similar accusations and the slur is tough to shake off. Only two months ago, United manager David Moyes said he had "had a word with Ashley privately" after a diving controversy during a Premier League match against Crystal Palace. "Ive always said I dont like diving," Moyes said at the time. "He deserved to get booked. I dont want any of my players diving. I dont want anybody doing it." Those comments echoed the warning that Moyes predecessor, Alex Ferguson, gave to Young in 2012 after a match against Queens Park Rangers when the wingers fall got QPR midfielder Shaun Derry sent off. "I left him out of the next game," Ferguson recounts in his recently published autobiography, "and told him that the last thing he needed as a Manchester United player was a reputation for going down easily." "Going to ground too easily was not something I tolerated," Ferguson said. On this occasion, Moyes argued that Young got a "tug in the box" on Tuesday from Sociedad defender Markel Bergara, and replays showed there was contact, however slight. Moyes defence didnt appear entirely convincing, though, and it certainly didnt stop the backlash from the former professionals and the media. Young already faces a fight for his United career following the emergence of Adnan Januzaj this season and competition from Shinji Kagawa, Nani and Antonio Valencia. He has only started four of Uniteds 10 league games and he wasnt selected in the most recent England squad for the final two World Cup qualifiers. These latest allegations will hardly help his bid to return to the first team for both club and country. Chris Chelios Jersey .com) - Richard Shermans two interceptions highlighted a dominant defensive effort, as the Seattle Seahawks routed the San Francisco 49ers in a highly anticipated NFC West Thanksgiving clash. Alex Delvecchio Jersey .The Hanwha Eagles said the team was impressed with Morgans contact ability and base-running skills.The 34-year-old debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2007 and hit .Adil Rashid talks challenging conditions, Jos Buttlers captaincy and feisty FIFA tournaments in his first Bangladesh tour blog. After all the talk, its good to get out to Bangladesh. Coming here is something new for a lot of the lads. Its a new experience as well with the weather conditions and the whole atmosphere. I think everyone is looking forward to it. It should be a good tour ahead and hopefully we can do well. This weekend on Sky Sports Mix Watch Bangladesh v England ODI on Sky Sports Mix We had our first tour match on Tuesday in tricky conditions. It was very challenging, it was 40-odd degrees and the humidity was fairly high as well but we have to get used to it fairly quickly. It was completely different conditions for us but, at the same time, it was enjoyable and were looking forward to the next two weeks or so. Obviously, the game was also Jos Buttlers first here as captain and I think hell be very similar to Eoin Morgan: a very positive, very aggressive captain, always looking to take the aggressive, positive option.He went very well on Tuesday, both as a batsman and with his keeping. His captaincy was good too but in games like that it is hard to tell, its more about bowlers getting overs under their belt so he was forced to rotate. Jos Buttler will be a positive captain, says Rashid I definitely think he will lead by example but then whatever is on his mind, he is going to say too. When he talks everybody is going to listen because when he does talk, he talks a lot of sense and with a lot of maturity.He is a very positive character in the way he speaks and the way he goes about his cricket. I think hell be a great leader for us in this one-day series. I think hell do exceptionally well. He has a strong mind-set and, like I said, hes a positive character.Personally, coming to these places with conditions like these where people say it favours the spinners, its about enjoying that challenge and trying to embrace it. Firstly, youve got to adapt to the conditions and then try to really enjoy it. It is going to be a challenge as well because well be bowling to good players of spin, who have been brought up playing spin but Im just looking to enjoy the craft of bowling leg-spin in these conditions and finding a way to succeed out here.Every country you go to you have to adapt and bowl a bit differently, bowl different paces or whatever and its the same out here. You have to find that pace and you have to find it pretty quickly. Its exciting and Im really looking forward to it.In general, whether things are going my way or not, I try to have a positive attitude but since the Big Bash last winter - that went pretty well for me - and the ODI series with Sri Lanka and Pakistan, things have gone well for me with England, with the white ball. Rashid enjoyed a superb white-ball summer for England Whether I perform or not, Im confident in my skills and my ability. Frans Nielsen Jersey. Its about going out there and having fun; if you have a good day, you have a good day, if not, it isnt something to worry about. You have good days, you have bad days and that is just part of cricket. At the moment, Im fairly confident in my game and hopefully I can just carry on like that. Rob Key checks out the pitch ahead of the first ODI between Bangladesh and England in Dhaka on Friday. Away from the cricket, weve been here for four or five days and so far weve not been out of the hotel in the evenings. The only place weve been to so far is to the ground and back. There is a lot of free time and so weve been playing a lot of FIFA. Some of the lads have brought their Xboxs and their PS4s with FIFA 17 so there has been a lot of competitions, a lot of banter and a lot of feisty people!There are a lot of jokes flying around and that is keeping us going. In the evenings well all go to somebodys room - it has been Sam Billings so far - and stay there for a couple of hours, have a few games and a bit of a laugh with all the boys. Sam Billings thinks that he is a big dog when it comes to FIFA, according to Rashid I would say Im okay but there are some who think theyre pretty good. Billings actually thinks hes a big dog when it comes to FIFA but he has his ups and downs. There are a few who are pretty good but I hold my own.Im sure the competitions will continue throughout the tour but, of course, our main focus is the cricket, starting with the first ODI on Friday.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.
