Ben Thatcher is a disgrace to the sport and to humanity, heaven help Mendes, hope he'll make a full recovery? Stuart Pearce must take action against this moron and bring some credability back to Man City!!!
How right you are!!! Money has ruined this sport and put untold pressure on players and mangers alike. Its know suprise this has happened. Ben Thatcher has left himself open to legal proceedings for his crude challenge on Pedro Mendes,with the possibility of Mendes seeking civil action. Greater Manchester Police have confirmed they will investigate the challenge - which only yielded a yellow card - Now that i simply don't understand! A yellow! Please - someone help me out with that one. Any contact with an elbow to the head has got to be eradicated - it's not just football, it's the law of the land as well."
Ben Thatcher should face a length ban if not a prision sentence - maybe even being band from the sport! After all, what kind of example does this set for the next generation!
