Hateful lowlight: Diving against Inter Milan in the Europa League, earning a yellow card that suspended him for the following match.

The reigning PFA Players' Player of the Year winner, Gareth Bale is perhaps the most magical player the English Premier League has to offer. The goals he scores are truly beautiful—not since Ronaldo has the EPL seen a more feared winger. His strikes, however, are underwritten by his scornful diving record. He picked up six yellow cards this past season for simulation, supplanting the likes of Luis Suarez, Ashley Young, and Nani as the EPL's top diver. Stay on your feet, lad.
