Why is this all of a sudden a big deal that needs stamping out the game?

 

Could it be because of the team the injured player plays for?

Luis got hit by about 50 different objects just a few weeks ago and nothing got said.

 

And it looked to me like Ferdinand was celebrating infront of the city fans.

Yeah it's really strange it's now massive news. Perhaps Suarez needs to get hit properly before action is taken or something.

 

*awaits the usual FA arselicks*

The City fans and Utd fans were both behind that goal - the seperation is in the middle-ish. He was behind that goal when he was hit - I think the celebration is around that area, on the border between the 2 sets of fans.

 

This is getting more coverage because the player was hit and it drew blood. If it bleeds, it leads and therefore its no surprise this is receiving more attention especially given its a high profile game.

True. Rooney was also hit, but that was standard so the usual tut tut response

It's because he actually got injured, if that had happened to Suarez the same reaction would have happened. It doesn't make it right though.

 

There would have been a bit of criticism but "he brings it all on himself", "this is what happens when your diving incites fans" etc would have all come out regularly.

The Manchester City fan who ran onto the pitch and tried to confront Rio Ferdinand at yesterday's Manchester derby has apologised.

 

Matthew Stott, 21, was restrained by Blues keeper Joe Hart and subsequently arrested following Robin van Persie's late winner at the Etihad Stadium yesterday. He was subsequently charged with pitch encroachment.

 

But speaking through his solicitors he has confessed his guilt - and said sorry to the Reds defender.

 

In a statement, the landscape gardener, from Knutsford, said: "I would like to apologise to all those affected by my actions yesterday, particularly Mr Ferdinand and the other players. I am extremely ashamed of my actions. I have let myself down, my family down, my fellow fans down and Manchester City Football Club.

 

"I intend to write personally to Mr Ferdinand to express my extreme regret and apologies and also apologise to Manchester United and their fans. I would like to thank Joe Hart for his actions when I came on the pitch."

 

"I have been a fan of Manchester City Football club all my life and I have been a season ticket holder for three years and I attend the games with my father. I have had the same seat in the section next to the away fans for those three years."

 

Rebecca Caulfield, solicitor at Stephen Lickrish & Associates, is representing Stott.

 

She said: "Mr Stott is a hard working man who has held a full time job as a landscape gardener for four years and lives with his partner of five years. He has never been to court before and has never been in trouble with any of the stewards at Manchester City Football Club before or at any other ground. He is extremely remorseful and is mortified by his behaviour which is completely out of character.

 

"This was a momentary mistake by Mr Stott which has led to him being charged, brought shame on his family, and will bring sanctions on the club that Mr Stott has supported all his life.

 

"Mr Stott will accept the consequences of his actions. He would like to make clear that he is not the stereotypical drunken football fan but a fan that attends games with his father. He is embarrassed and ashamed of his temporary moment of madness that has brought wider consequences on the club he supports and his fellow fans."

So the character witness - yep, his father :lol:

Two of my mates were in the Fulham end at The Baseball Ground, they lost the very last match of the season to a late goal and Derby went up to Div one at Fulham's expense.

 

The Derby fans threw a ram's head into the crowd from the tier above the away end, still dripping with blood.

 

Scooters is for poofs.
