Victor Anichebe: Targeted for abuse by Everton fan

William Blything subjected Toffees striker Victor Anichebe to a verbal torrent of abuse during the 1-1 draw with QPR at Loftus Road in October last year.

The 41-year-old merchant seaman was also found guilty of shouting racist abuse at QPR midfielder Park Ji-sung.

Blything was arrested following complaints from fellow Everton fan Neil Jordan, who gave evidence at the hearing at West London Magistrates Court.

Mr Jordan told the court: "I was appalled because it wasn't just an isolated incident, there was some intent targeted at that player because of the colour of his skin."

Another Everton fan witnessed Blything's abuse of Park, although Blything denied both allegations claiming he was a victim of mistaken identity.

But Blything was last month found guilty of causing racially aggravated intentional harassment, alarm and distress, and he has been fined £2,500 and issued with a three-year banning order preventing him from entering any football stadium.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
