    The coins obviously hit him. If they hadn’t he’d roll on the floor in agony.

    Great player. Poor actor.

  4. yespage says:

    Nothing but a cowardly thug if you take cheap shots at athletes. The player can’t retaliate even if they know who it was.

  5. justin says:

    I really dont understand why the police do not catch the people that throw the coins. They should be caught, bannned to any football matches ever, fined 10 grand and spend a cool 30 days in jail. Stop fining the club. It is not their fault. And the club fine is not even a slap on the wrist. Not even a days wage of one of the players.
    The police say they are invstigating, but that is full of crap. I look forwardto the day one of these idiots are caught and punished properly.
