Leeds 'Tosser' Charged

Leeds United goalkeeper Casper Ankergren has been charged with improper conduct by the FA after throwing a missle at Swindon Town fans after Leeds 1-0 win over Swindon.

Swindon Town fans had been hurling abuse and a small ball at the Danish keeper during the game.

After the game Ankergren turned to give the fans some stick and rub in the fact his side won 1-0, he picked up an item and threw it back at the already wound up Swindon Town fans in the Town End stand at the end of the game.

There were no reports of any injuries.

Dink if you look at my article you will clearly see that Ankergren's missile throwing could have global consequences...not just to the narrow minded Swindon Town fans.

Apparently the Swindon fans were so upset only 4,000 bothered to turn up for the next home game!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The rest were clearly wiped out by Ankergren's deadly missiles.

If he's not guilty then why all the fuss - LUFC1 I would chose your words better, 'narrow minded' , what a rediculus thing to say.

You have clearly missed the complete tongue-in-cheek element of both my comments here and my article on Vital Leeds.

It`s a miracle he hit ANY Swindon fans..How many were behind the goal? And why the hell were they throwing a small ball at a Dutch keeper? And who the hell WAS this Dutch keeper? And how did he get into the ground?

Dunno but if we had a dutch keeper on the pitch, we're in some serious trouble as we were playing 2 keepers at once!
