Heh. Kal's post reminds me of when I went with a Swindon-supporting mate to a game at Chesterfield a few years ago, and Carl Muggleton was playing in nets for Chesterfield.|
As there weren't many away fans in the paddock, me and my mate were stood right at the front, behind the goal. We were on the outside of a beer or two, and were yelling some right abuse at the Home players.
Muggleton placed the ball for a goal-kick and strode back a few paces. I took my chance and yelled, for no reason whatsoever other than boistrousness: 'MUGGLETON YOU C*NT!'. I hadn't taken into account the difference in acoustics between 'my' home ground (Old Trafford) and the Spireites' shed.
Mr Muggleton turned around and, rather than the retaliative volley of abuse I was expecting, looked me right in the eye and gave me this expression :'(
I felt like a proper tool (which, to be fair, I was) and said, quite quietly, with head fairly-well bowed: '...sorry' to which he said: 'no bother pal' which, if anything, made it all the worse.
In short: Carl Muggleton is not a c*nt, and I'm sorry for suggesting otherwise.
