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.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
