Hmmm, he claims he was too drunk and is deeply apologetic. I don't know what to believe, still feel the sentence was right

doesnt matter if he was drunk, people need to take responsibility for their actions. if someone just got a free pass for doing something stupid then everyone would blame booze when they do something stupid... 4 months is a good sentence

The funny thing is that if average Joe happens to get severely assaulted by a drunken lout on any given weekend, the assaulter probably won't get anything more than a slap on the wrist & a night in the cell.

Double standards piss me off.

Should have been banned for life from every football stadium in England.

He's been banned from football stadiums before, then broke his ban twice.. He's an absolute idiot and 4 months is more than justified, especially when he was bragging about it on his Facebook afterwards

bloody hell, they sure fast tracked this sentencing. Clearly thugs who deserve to be behind bars need to assault professional footballers more often.. clean up our streets in no time!
