Confirmed: Walcott Escapes Further Action For Mocking Spurs Fans

By on January 6, 2014

Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott has escaped any further action for gesturing to the Tottenham away support during our 2-0 win at the Emirates on Saturday.

Theo responded to abuse from the Spuds fans – which included objects being thrown at him – as he was being stretchered from the field by using his hands to remind them what the score was (2-0).

If they weren’t already incensed enough, presumably due to how easily their team was being beaten by their great rivals, the Spurs fans anger intensified even further following Theo’s actions and they hurled even more abuse and coins at him as he sat defenseless on a stretcher.

Despite a media driven agenda to try and get Walcott slapped with a ban, thankfully the FA have seen sense to let him off with nothing more than a slap on the wrists by reminding him of his duties as a footballer.

The FA have however, contacted both Arsenal and Tottenham to ask for their views on objects being thrown from the crowd – from both the home and away sections – with the threat of imposing a lifetime ban and anyone found guilty.

Now, about that Bentaleb stamp?

    So the FA aint taking action against Walcott.They did angst Rogers for his outburst.What about Moyes when he launched a tirade after the loss against Spurs?
    Surely he shd be treated the same as other bosses.

    Spurs fan here. For me although was fuming with Walcott at time – its banter, and if one of our player did something similar i’d be laughing my head off now……as for Bentelab stamp? do me a favour, he stamped on floor in frustration – watch clip carefully and if you think its anymore than that – there is thousands of specsavers stores in the UK!!!
