FA charge fat bloke for stamp


The FA have charged Charlie Adam for his stamp on Olivier Giroud during Stoke’s 1-0 win over Arsenal at the weekend.

The corpulent clogger clearly brought his studs down on Giroud’s leg during the game, but claimed afterwards he had been aiming for the French striker’s nuts in an act of friendship so as to ensure he wouldn’t be involved in any further late-night scandals which might damage his career.

Much like his shooting, however, he missed.

Amazingly, despite there being video evidence of it, Stoke have said, “Charlie and the club are surprised and disappointed to learn of this and will appeal vigorously against the decision.”

To be fair, you can’t blame them when Yaya Toure got off scot-free when he booted some bloke in the spine, but then Stoke aren’t as flush as Man City and are unlikely to be given the same leeway from people who are about to enjoy an all expenses holiday in a luxury resort with a new watch and a slave and some gold bullion.

If banned Adam will have more time to eat Yorkies and chicken flavoured crisps washed down with cheap banana milk, as well as plotting a move to a low-level La Liga club so he can finally get around to breaking Gareth Bale’s ankles.


    • Charlie Adam has always been a nasty piece of work mixing the skill he has of producing match winning shots and passes with the uncanny ability to tread on players,elbow players and generally involve in the dark skills when he hoped people weren’t looking.
      He fits the Stoke mode perfectly and of course Mark Hughes never saw the stamp in front of him but clearly saw Koscielny deliberately hand the ball across the pitch . They deserve each other in the Championship next year …….hopefully

    • When people say “not that sort of player,” it is implicit acknowledgement that there exists ‘that sort of player’. And the only candidates for who those players happen to be are the ones that make horrible fouls and break legs. So every time someone says “he’s not that sort of player,” they are indirectly telling us that they are ‘that sort of player’.

      You with me?

  1. Not much good it does us now.. Should’ve had 2 yellows, penalty was harsh, and was just one of those days when we played crap. Oh well.

    • There should be some way to benefit us. In the end, all it doe is hurt us and benefit our rivals when they play Stoke/.

      Hope Stoke get relegated this year.

      • I suppose it would benefit us if the entire Britannia stadium including fans and players of both teams were infected with terminal dysentary on the 26th of April 😉

        • It’s disturbing to read some of the comments on online match reports by Stoke fans, you see the most vile abuse being directed at players like Ramsey, and then (if its a Facebook comment) the commenter is often revealed to be old aged, female, or some demographic that you wouldn’t normal associate with online trolling or football “banter”. All ages and sexes in Stoke-on-trent are involved with this.

          It’s sociologically unexplainable. The same demographic that reads the Daily Mail and feels sorry that Helen Flanagan and that ex-footballer broke up, makes nonchalant quiffs about how Adam should have broken Giroud’s leg. I haven’t been to Stoke, but are they really THAT deprived up there, even compared with other post-industrial Northern cities? I don’t understand!

    • Yep. The horse has bolted and if you think about it, it actually doesn’t help us. Stoke could have a first choice player suspended for a while. What if he’s banned for games against teams around us in the table?

      See what I did there?

      No. Ban the dirty git for 5 or 6 games and replay the game from the moment he should’ve been sent off with Stoke down to ten men (minus Adam of course).

      It’s daft, but fair.

      Perhaps a new rule that the team loses all its points and the other team get awarded a goal after the ruling (so we would’ve got a point). Stamping is fucking well out of order. It needs, er….stamping out.

      All this and I haven’t had a drink yet.

      Still, it could actually hinder us (Adam is shite but one of their best players and will probably miss games…perhaps against rivals as they play Chelsea and Spurs in April).

      Also ban that useless ref for a while. Nobody mentioned the end of the first half. Rosicky hassled their defence and won the ball. He pushed it past the last man and was about to through one on one with the keeper. And the ref REALLY FUCKING QUICKLY got out his whistle and blew for half time. The pen was a 50/50 bit we didn’t get the same one at City of course. That ref was so quick to give it it was untrue. It was one of those where you need to have a second and perhaps consult the lino.

      Still, not blaming the ref. We were shite anyway.

  4. Disgusting that Adams and Stoke FC even want to appeal this. I really do hope that human-sized arse cancer footballing career ends in very violent and premature way. It’s a miracle he hasn’t ended many a player’s careers himself with his deliberate and violent tackles.

    • they don’t talk about appealing. they just said ” vigorously fight ” who knows what they’re up to, stamping on people on and off the field?

      Remember this is stoke they claim to be a football club so who knows what else they can lie about.

  5. Too bad Pubis isn’t still there. Would’ve liked to see his mewly face spitting and sputtering about the charge….Mark Hughes deserves no less though. Hopefully he’ll say something derogatory towards the FA and get his own charge too. Cunts. All of em.

  6. Although it’s nice to see a dastardly player like Adam in a dastardly club like Stoke get a retrospective ban, I’m afraid they are of no use. The damage has already been done.

    Owing to the growing incompetence of the referees and with progressing times, we really should have quick video replays made available so incidents can be punished right then and there. Just like in tennis, it would be nice if each team gets three calls a game to contend dubious decisions.

    • Or ban Adam for his next two games that he’s eligible to play against arsenal?

      Does seem kind of ridiculous that the sinned against get no retribution.

      Thumb up 29 Thumb down 5

    • Or (and yes I know this is a pipe dream) order Adam sent off and the match replayed from the point he was sent off, plus a three-game ban for the red card. Impossible to do, of course, but certainly the fairest thing.

  7. What’s happened to the Arsenalist guy? Has he taken a week off in protest at our non showing in Mordor?

  9. Did u all read what Nzonzi said abt kicking Arsenal bcos our players are soft? Dat’s d more reason Flamini shld ve played on Saturday..it’s even a challenge to all the players that a fellow man like you calls you soft..I wld ve kicked their players too if I were in their shoes to tell them off that we re not as soft as you think

    Thumb up 9 Thumb down 15

    • While I’d love to see Flamini ‘level the field’ I don’t think we can afford another ban with the matches approaching. And you just know that referee would have shown red for the first Arsenal riposte.

      If not for that, totally agree.

      • Yeah I understand why Giroud didn’t really stand up for himself – the way things were going it’s obvious he would have been the one to get carded.

        Thumb up 14 Thumb down 4

      • I would have loved to have seen Flamini kick ass too, but it was clear, to borrow a quote from a popular movie, the odds were not in our favor in regards to the refs.

  10. Just shows what a poor ref we had on sat, Adams should be sent off , game changer ! Same should have happened with mikel earlier in the season !!

  11. I hope the FA take Nzonzi’s public statement that they “don’t care and will continue to Kick them” into consideration.

    Adam should’ve been off the pitch -twice- and Pieters with him. They would have made Sh*wcr**ss look like a decent chap if such a thing were possible. The entire team is that kind of player.

      • Unfortunately many do say that a surprising amount, yet are hoping for great things in the future from Walcott (unfortunately not this year), Wilshere, Gibbs and Ox playing for England – because of that very same pacy, technical non-thug style of play they are criticizing.

  17. Dissapointed Giroud never fought back and took a beating throughout the game, and all he could reply with was crying to the ref. For a guy his size, he does not appear gery strong. He is to easily knocked around imo. Perhaps he should bulk up abit and play more to his strenght and size advntage like Benteke or Carrol, and not try to play so much like Neymar.

  18. Calling Stoke, with ‘players’ like this fat fecker and a sly thug for manager, a ‘rugby team’ is an insult to rugby (both codes). That said, we won’t win the title as long as we wind up talking about their approach to the beautiful game. We need to be able to just beat the wasters and move on.

  19. This is all nonsense dont blame Stoke for playing their game.. im not being funny but there just wasnt any fight from our team…
    Imagine Stoke trying to kick man u about seasons ago.. the man utd players would kick them back show grit get in their place.. the players would confront the player and referee in numbers…

    We as a team are just light weight we are far to soft.. why isnt Wenger influancing the referee, imagine Mouringo and Ferguson just sitting in his chare just watching? both of them would b screaming at the assistant referee..

    • Not place i mean face….

      You use every trick in the book to win thats my point… dont just carry on passing it like nothing happened and allow yourself to stamped and kicked about the pitch…. we need fire in our bellys.

    • Uuh, yes blame Stoke for breaking the rules of the game.
      I never minded a good fight and going all in, and yes sometimes tackles are mistimed by accident and that is not always a matter of unfair play. But this is not playing “their game” – this is not even playing “the game”. Football does not and should not allow for these kinds of things, and even remotely entertaining the idea that it should be tollerated is complete nonsense and sure to ruin the game if continued.

  21. Here’s an idea: How about taking away Stokes points? Or at least reduce 3 to 2 or 1?

    Don’t necessarily mean Arsenal should get the points, but this is SO obviously a situation were Stoke should have been reduced to 10, and it is only fair to assume that this would have impacted their chances of winning. Hence, what is most fair? To lend a helping hand to the teams facing Stoke in upcoming fixtures? Or to punish Stoke directly in the place were they got the unfair advantage – ie. the Arsenal game and points?

    I am pretty sure that if Stoke were offered the choice of getting 3 points against us and missing C.A. for two games vs. draw/loss and gaving him for two games, they would go for the former option.

    Just sick of the completely unfair way these things play out. Don’t know Stokes upcoming games, but say they have Chelsea and Man C, and now they are a weaker side for those two games, essentially making the win more likely for Chelsea and Man C. Now Arsenal have lost points to Stoke AND have to accept that their title rivals are being helped to win – can it get any MORE unfair for Arsenal??

    Goddamn c*unts!

  23. Having calmed down a few things are clear.

    1. We were shite and deserved nothing from the game.
    2. Stoke went too far. Stamping is the act of a coward.
    3. The ref needs a ban. Adam will get one (just seen interview with ex ref Dermot Gallagher who said three coaches have already informed the FA that Adam meant it and will almost certainly get a ban now). Adam’s ban may actually hinder us. The rules need looking at regarding these types of incidents.
    4. If we even attempted to get physical with them, we would get a card. Rosicky’s tame pussy cat challenge brought out an instant yellow from that prick of a ref.
    5. Flamini would’ve been sent off. After the first stamp he would’ve done the same thing Adam and seen red. I wish he did play and remove a few Orc limbs.

    That’s what’s really peed me off. If the ref is gonna let the game be physical…fine! I don’t mind a hard game at times. Thing is, you’ve got to let both teams do it.

    That moron was smiling as our players were stamped on. In a hurry to give a dodgy penalty. In a hurry to book our players for breaking wind within 5 yards of an Orc. In a hurry to blow for half time (did anyone else notice when he blew????…when Rosicky was going through one on one with the keeper).

    Yes we were shite, but the ref was even worse. And that’s saying something.
