FA to charge Drogba


BLUENUT

Recommended Posts

They are now investigating comments made by Drogba in his autobiography to the effect that he wishes he'd punched Vidic in the Champions League final.

Looks like you can be punished for your thoughts as well as your actions now.

Reminds me of that coment by Martin Jol when he said to the ref "If I called you a c**t would you book me?" and the ref said "Yes" so he said "What if I just thought you were a c**t?" and the ref said there was nothing he could do if he just thought he was a c**t so Jol said "I think you're a c**t"

Not sure if I agree with any player writing their memoirs whilst they are still playing.

I've got to agree with that - it can only cause some kind of controversy, and it's not like they need the money!

Who the hell buys an autobiography of someone who's still in their 20's or early 30's anyway? ;)

They'll be leaping from the womb soon, pen in hand, to start writing autobiographies!

Still when George Orwell invented the Thought Police, I don't think he expected them to operate through the FA. If we are to be judged on things we've contemplated doing, or fantasised about doing, then I for one am in heap big trouble!

Not heard that before.. that's brilliant :lol:

Wouldnt you just love it for a change, the FA press release came back as.

"The FA have investigated the comment made by Mr Drogba in his autobigraphy, and we have agreed, we wish he had punched Vidic too"

Are you sure it was Jol? I'm pretty sure I've heard that one but in the version I heard it wasn't Jol who said it...and I heard it quite some time ago. I'm pretty sure it was some player...in the version I've heard, I mean.

I was thinking the same thing Mak, pretty sure it wasn't Jol, could have been Barry Fry, but again I think your right that it was a recent x player....Razor Ruddock?

It's a story that's done the rounds but one Jol used at a Spurs fans forum, a mate at work showed it to me a while ago, I thought Jol had pinched it then.

So Drogba gets charged for saying he wished he'd punched a man who had tried to punch him first...

...whereas Jamie "scumbag" Carragher says that he was on the verge of having his thug mates beat the living snot out of an opposing player, if it had not been for a witness, gets away with it. ¬____¬ Typical BS.

May I include two choice quotes from the 'Pie and Bovril' forums:

What a bell end, players have gone downhill in recent times.

What about the old time joshing of sh*ting in each others shoes, or leaving a jobby in the bath.

And possibly the truest sentence ever:

Jamie Carragher is a mediocre player, and an odious human being.

After all that, the FA have announced that they won't be charging Drogba. From Sky:

Blues striker in the clear

Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will not face any disciplinary action from the Football Association over comments in his autobiography saying he wished he had punched Nemanja Vidic in the UEFA Champions League final.

Nice to see the FA get it right for a change.

The same kind of people who buy ones on Britney Spears or would seriously consider getting one (which surely will be out soon) on "the crazy life and times of Peaches Geldof".

When I saw this I just groaned, why can't players get a decent lawyer to proof read it or write books after they have retired?

And why do people equally trawl through them then looking to sue said players for what they said.

To quote an old Beatles tune "let it be".
