Well Spuds are taking it seriously. They are considering writing to the FA to complain about the snidey tw*t. Before Paulinho he did Bale twice and Scott Parker. Perhaps if he had done the Quenelle the media would stir up a shit storm about him but putting footballers out of action for several weeks doesn't seem to get a mention.
I was over for the 3-0 against Liverpool a couple of years ago (just after new year) and all he did for the whole 90 minutes was either foul City players or whinge at the referee. How the fuck he ever got to play for Liverpool is beyond me.
