Tottenham Fan Seeks Justice

Tottenham Fan Seeks Justice

Emmanuelle Adebayor looks set to be banned from football for the rest of his life after after incidents got out of hand between a Spurs fan and Frank Lampard at White Hart Lane on Monday night.

After Spurs crashed out (unbelievable eh?) of the FA Cup, a Tottenham supporter ran on to the field and swung a punch at Chelsea's Frank Lampard. Fortunately for the midfielder his supply of Ginsters peppered steak pasties had been late this week and had lost sufficient weight to duck the Spurs fan's hay-maker.

Not surprisingly, the FA and Tottenham Hotspur slapped the fan with a life time's banning order for, and I quote 'aiming a punch at Frank Lampard and failure to leave the field of play'.

Now those of you who don't suffer from alzheimer's will remember that Manu Adebayor was issued, and indeed is still serving a 4 match ban for apparently that self same act.

In the FA's second draft of their match report, they claimed Adebayor had been sent off for 'aiming a punch at Frank Lampard' and gained a further one match ban for failing to leave the field of play.

Sound familiar?

Manu now faces a life time ban after the Tottenham fan claimed that it was only fair that the same punishment be issued.

Speaking with Vital Arsenal the Spurs fan said, 'It's not fair that I've been banned for life when Labytraor only gets banned for four matches, that means I got banned for twice as long as he did'

'If he was English it would be ok, but because he's French he should be banned for life.'

'I will campaign for the rest of my life, or until the dole office opens, for justice'

sorry, was this an attempt to be funny? More like narcacistic self pitying.

Is that even possible SH? Me thinks you've swallowed the dictionary before reading it.
20/03/2007 23:29:00
"narcacistic self pitying"...look up "oxymoron" while you're at it. I will be honest, though, and say I've read cleverer/funnier things than this.

spurs fans mouthing about thier english players policy for the England national team. If lampard had been injured in that brawl, with internationals coming up, then how can spurs be deemed good for England?

F- then Jamma? Well it's been a long day and I'm just home from work. Even as I approach my 30's my reports still read "must try harder" :(

20/03/2007 23:55:00
Haha you thought you were funny, k_chelski? I know, I know..typo. Anyways~~ there,there Rocky. It brought a smile to my face as I'm sure it has to all the gooners on this website. Cheers and kudos to you for your effort!

K_chelski, you may write good English but you don't understand it. Your suggestion of an anti immigration mentality is laughably the polar opposite of the truth. Whilst I notice nobody complains that Canada, Australia, USA and NZ, have much tougher restrictions on immigration, like all British people I fully welcome 100% of those who are fleeing persecution or can make an effective contribution and wish to integrate into our country. This would of course mean you being immediately deported back to Brazil, as I am certain your real contribution would be as pathetic as the juvenile and pathetic posts you plague us with. Nobody is impressed that you select the richest team with the better recent record to support - you cannot even support your fellow brazilians by following Arsenal
