    Fan charged

    The guy who threw a drink at Morelos has been charged, according to the BBC. Appears in court at the end of the month.

    Quite right too. We cannot allow fans to throw "missiles" at players. This is becoming all too common at grounds unfortunately. However if, as reported, Morelos gestured at our fans before the incident, then he should be cited by the SFA for that. If they can do that for Higdon they can do that for Morelos.

    Morellos = eejit who did something wrong and stupid.
    The fan = eejit who did something wrong and stupid.

    Difference is our supporter base (on the whole), realise our fan was way out of order. But, their supporter base (on the whole), believe their player did nowt wrong. Wonder what the thinking would be had the same thing happened at Greyskull in a role-reversal sort of way?

    Morelos was booked for the gesture I thought, I don't think the SFA would take further action? I would hope not at least.

    It's difficult to avoid going into 'Old Firm' mode. I've seen more than a few gestures from opposition teams at Fir Park; nobody demanded bookings - the 'Well fans just hurled abuse! I've also seen opposition players, very near the touchlilne, blasting the ball low and hard into our supporters. that's actually more culpable than a gesture; but I didn't see any bookings.

    Morelos was booked and as he was on a yellow card already was subsequently sent off and rightly so. That will be the end of the matter as far as any action against him goes.

    As far as the fan that threw the cup goes, he was extremely stupid and can have no complaints about being charged for it. Not even a kid either, this is a 30 year old adult ffs!

    I can understand why the authorities can't allow players to make gestures but there's little more pathetic in football than fans being 'outraged' a player reacts after being abused all game .

    I agree with that and we've seen it for years at Fir Park, particularly in the East Stand when a player who's taken pelters the entire game gives a bit back when they've scored and the fans who'd been dishing out the abuse are up in arms about it. Derek Townsley and Scott McDonald being the prime examples of that. However, I was near that section in the game last month and from what I saw and heard, Morelos wasn't getting any serious flak from any part of the stand so I couldn't understand his ridiculous 'celebration' after he'd scored. I'm in no way excusing the cup throwing incident but Morelos needs to take a good look at himself because ultimately if he doesn't go anywhere near the home support and give the GIRUY gesture then nothing gets thrown.

    Are you sure it was the GIRUY gesture? Perhaps in Columbia that's a gesture of 'I love you opposing fans' ...

    After all, his 'slitting of the throat' gesture made at Parkheid turns out to be no more than a Sevco translation akin to 'The Game's Over'. And, as I recall, the SFA shat themselves then as well !

    True but what about the fans in that area who didn't dish out any abuse but were still subjected to his gesture? Not all fans dish out abuse.
