Damn straight. Been way overblown out of all proportion. Hypocritical, biased gutter press. Cole attends a Chelsea event, then has a couple of drinks a good few days before the next match. The gutter paparazzi goad him into a reaction they want, ending up with him being arrested but released without charge a few hours later. The press reaction? They smear his name and his club all over their front/back pages, bringing up every indiscretion or incident they think will stir up even more public hate. They consequently call for him to be dropped from the England team, they call for him to be fined two weeks' wages and to be dropped v Coventry. Gerrard is out on the lash with friends. In a nightclub, he makes a request to the DJ. The request goes unfulfilled, and when they exit Gerrard assaults the DJ. Gerrard is arrested and charged with assault. The press reaction? They publish stories about what a tough time he is having to go through, bring up character witnesses to say what a 'nice' bloke he is. They do not call for England or Liverpool to drop him. The press are all complete tossers. Quite frankly given how the Scum went about him, showing a complete lack of respect in trying to stitch him up, if I were in his position I'd have given him a smack and not just a load of verbals.
