Wolves fans hurt Albrighton's feelings

Wolves fans hurt Albrighton's feelings

Poor little Marc Albrighton! The nasty Wolves fans hurt the Aston Villa players feelings last Saturday!

We should all hang our collective heads in shame because the Wolves fans who chanted towards Marc Albrighton and booed him after the Karl Henry incident hurt the little fella's feelings.

Obviously Karl Henry was guilty of kicking out at Albrighton and he has since apologised to McCarthy, the squad, the fans and pretty much anyone who will listen and will now sit out a three-match suspension.

But Albrighton did appear to make a bit of a meal out of the whole thing although he claims he was winded.

'It was pretty hard and it winded me. It's something I wouldn't want again.' he told the Daily Mail.

When asked how he felt about being branded a cheat he continued: 'It hurts, definitely, when I read the papers on Sunday and Monday. It does hurt a lot, especially when people in the crowd call you a cheat when I was the victim, on the floor getting kicked.

Poor fella.

What did he expect? Henry was wrong to back-heel him (and didn't we suffer for it) but it was a mere brush-stroke. Albrighton (a disgrace to my old home) writhed around as if he had been kicked in the balls, clearly intending to get our lovable Karl sent off.

Think that he's still rolling now. Judges all gave him 10's but you don't stamp someone on the floor. Henry has apologised to everyone except Marc....

Grow up you bitter Dingles!

You dingles are pathetic and the fact that you have front paged this is even more pathetic.

AV fans: I have already agreed that Henry's action was wrong and that he had to go. And, in a post in an earlier thread expressed my annoyance at Henry's action. My complaint with Albrighton is his exaggerated reaction to what was a slight touch (and I have reviewed it) which was intended solely to influence the referee. And he still claims that he is sore! Recently, we have suffered grievously at the hands of play-acting opponents who have got away with cheating. Not only did Arteta of Arsenal make a meal of the fair tackle that resulted in Milijas's dismissal, he didn't even rub the spot that Milijas supposedly hit. Seconds later he was on his feet, limp-free and taking the free-kick. Then there was Lampard's scything tackle against Hammill, for which he only received a yellow. Such behaviour should be ... er ... stamped out of the game.

Henry was an idiot, but Marc definitely made the most of the contact....but hey ho.....we've been on the other end plenty, so if you are stupid enough to get sucked in......

Southbank60 - answer is simple. If Henry didn't kick out then we wouldn't even be talking about this, so I don't think you can really blame the Villa player here....

karl henry doesnt have a leg to stand on (groan) he lashed out, got himself sent off...what a knob... and we lost the game as a result. But lets spare a thought too for these weed-like nancy boys that constantly writhe around on the floor ... maybe we should have "Nonce of the year" awards, to the swan lake performance of a lifetime - that c*** albrighton is sure to be a contender. I was however happy to see honest players like Whittngham in the CC semi getting wiped out massively and instead of play-acting, got up and took the subsequent free kick, O-hara could easily have dived for us earlier in the season, I think Kaboul did a mid-air pirouette to in the Spurs / City game without bidding for a bafta... Kudos to these and all other honest footballers who are maintaining some semblance of dignity in the game.
