  • I see that cretinous Leeds "fan" was from Gloucestershire. The Magistrates have already dealt with him; 16 weeks in jail and a 5 year football banning order. Got off light. Should have at least prevented him from procreating. Perhaps Kirkland can do something in the Civil Courts and contribute any damages to a worthy cause?
