Coin Incident To Be Looked Into And Fans Arrested

Carling Cup: Manchester United 3 v 1 Manchester City
During the Manchester derby last night a coin, bottle and a few other stuff was thrown at City’s Craig Bellamy. The FA are now waiting for the report by the referee and Man United could face a possible fine.

Now I don’t want to condone what the fans did last night because it wasn’t right but why are Man United being looked into and Man City aren’t? During the first leg at the City Of Manchester Stadium a cigarette lighter was thrown at Man United defender Patrice Evra, that isn’t being looked into.

Why isn't that being looked into aswell? It was caught on camera, just in case the referee missed it.

A FA spokeman said: "Once we have the referee's report and asked for a report from the club itself we can establish what, if any, action is merited”.

The fans shouldn’t have done but seriously, at least be fair.

Meanwhile it has been confirmed by Greater Manchester police that 11 men were arrested before the Carling Cup game last night:

A Police spokesman said: "Officers policing (last night's) Manchester derby have made 11 arrests.
"Eleven men have been arrested on suspicion of various offences, including public order, affray and criminal damage."

Assistant Chief Constable Ian Hopkins said: "The arrests we made prior to [last night's] game and the work we carried out with the clubs has paid dividends.
"The vast majority of fans have taken on board our messages ahead of the game, making sure it has been a safe evening and one that can be remembered for the football."

"The low number of arrests on the night is testament to the excellent work of all those involved.
"The vast majority of fans behaved very well and I would like to thank them for listening to the messages we have been giving, to help make the evening pass off peacefully."
