Better Late Than Never. (WITH AN UPDATE)



Ever wondered what a racist and homophobic individual looks like? You have? Well after the jump ye shall be enlightened. Cops have released images of the 16 morons who they wish to nab in connection with the abuse that Portsmouth defender and ex-Spurs man Sol Campbell received when the two sides met back on the 28th of September.


Here they are. What a bunch. A number of them look young and ignorant but there are a few who should know better! Yes you, Mr top right and you, Mr third row middle left. Hmm, how embarrassed will you be when the old bill march into your place of work and take you to the station.



The Police are taking the matter very seriously. They failed to arrest those responsible at the time of the game due the logistics of dealing with such a large crowd and have been comparing the images to database records of known hooligans. Now they have released the images of the men they believe to all be from London, so people who know them and dislike them can turn supergrass.

'We want to send a clear message that abuse of this kind will not be tolerated and that we are taking robust action. I'd urge anyone who recognises these people to contact us as soon as possible.' -Superintendent Neil Sherrington of the Hampshire fuzz.

I am surprised how good the images are, watch out footy fans, big brother is watching. I guess they will have to use game footage and lip reading experts in court to decide if this bunch are actually guilty. Police arrested two men in connection with the incident last Friday.

Campbell has been victim to abuse on previous occasions from Spurs fans who still hold a grudge over the defenders unique move to hated neighbors Arsenal back in 2001. This is not the only case of this nature to be investigated recently. Just last week, 2 men were arrested in Newcastle for racially abusing Egyptian striker Mido.

I am glad to say than UF's own Likely Lad is not in one of the pictures above.

[UPDATE: According to the Guardian news ticker, they've arrested one this morning in connection with the incidents. Let's hope the rest are captured so easily.]

Sol Campbell? Never heard of him...

phil said...

In all seriousness, though, while Sol is a traitorous, lying Judas, he did not deserve what those fans gave him. There's really no place for that in my football world.

Nathaniel said...

I'm trying to imagine how the "Traitorous, lying Judas" chant would go...

phil said...

Ha! There's not one that I'm aware of...my personal favorite isn't even an anti-Sol chant. It's aimed at that vicious little twat, Ashley Cole:

Tweedy, Tweedy, Tweedy
She cannot fucking sing
and when she's shagging Ashley Cole
She dreams of Ledley King

Hey! A new UF series: Funniest Terrace Chants

Nathaniel said...

Excellent idea, phil.

Although I'm not sure Ledley King is the lesser of two evils.

I was thinking of making "Lying Judas" to the tune of "Dear Prudence," but that's not really a chant kind of song.

Andrew said...

That Cole chant is on-point.

Not as good as this...

Theres a circus in the town, in the town.
Jim Magilton is the clown, is the clown.
And Andy marshall is a judas C**t.
Ipswich town are going down, going down.

phil said...

That's hilarious, BD.


I'm telling you, this needs to be a feature. There are some hilarious chants out there most have likely never heard.

When I was just a little boy I asked my mother what would I be?
Would I be City? Would I be Town?
Here's what she said to me...

Wash your mouth out son,and go get your fathers gun..We'll go shoot some Ipswich scum, shoot some Ipswich scum.

“We’ve only come to see Eboue”

Apparently being sung around Emirates the past few weeks, as reported by Gunnerblog.

Yeah, this is post-worthy. We'll sort it out!

Umlaut75,

I am in the middle of finals, and have not slept in 3 days, and that chant (and its impetus) made me laugh out loud. Well done.

You are welcome.
