Eric Cantona - sent off again, then has fight with fan !!!

Eric Cantona was sent off for apparently *** conduct at Palace tonight
after Shaw appeared to impede EC's run. As he walked to the tunnel he was
verbally abused by fans. He then turned and appeared to make a two-footed
lunge, over the advertising hoarding, at a spectator. When the spectator
regained his balance 'Eric the King' (or so his video tells us) appeared to
try and punch the fan. The fan also tried to get a punch in, but did not
*seem* to land one.

Police took EC to a local station for questioning, along with Paul Ince who
also got involved in the fracas (now that is a surprise, NOT!). Police have
taken the addresses of at least 2 dozen fans who were witnesses and said that
*** had been alleged by at least one fan. The FA have already said that
charges of improper behaviour and bringing the game into disrepute will
inevitably be brought, and swiftly dealt with.

Maybe we should run a sweepstake on how many games the prat will be banned
for, though that's if he ever plays in this country again. Still, at least he
did not ruin anyone else's career. I wonder if Taggart will back him up on
this one - I think not.

Good idea! I reckon 12 games plus personal fine and club fine. And
whingeing git Furgs will whinge that between 3 and 6 games is more like it.

And of course part time scum fans (not the real ones) everywhere will unite
behind feeble arguments that it was justified, and what a loss to the game
he'd be etc.

   I personally think he should get Permanently kicked out and that the FA
should recommend to FIFA that they do the same!!

I was under the impression that the players were allowed to leave the ground
with the rest of the players. Some of the fans went to the local police
station to give statements with a view to press charges of ***.

It will be interesting to see the reaction and subsequent punishment meted out
by the FA, especially remembering the ***y nose they received over the
Tottenham affair earlier this season.

I personally would like to see Cantona sine die by the FA, this sort of
behavour cannot be tolerated and an example must be made of Cantona for the
good of our game.

I reckon he'll be banned by Man united for the rest of the season and fined
20,000 - just an idea
