imagine Eric Cantona kicking you in the face, forever.
threw coffee at him and called his mum a whore
I love some of the faces in that pic. Top right is the 1950s reporter thinking "What a scoop!", top left guy obviously foretold the incident weeks ago and looks on knowingly.
I hope he's saying "Cor blimey!"
Who is completely unfazed. He looks like he's about to hold up a score card.
who arranged the whole incident.
is the greatest cockney silent film actor
it looks like he's saying "Good lord! I've never seen anything interesting before in my life!"
- she looks like she's about to break into applause!
The guy he is kicking is clearly a Nazi
one of my most favourite moments in football ever
ooh aaaaaaaah Cantonaaaaaaa
Matthew Simmons, a Crystal Palace 'fan' who had run from the back of the stand to hurl abuse at God, after he had been sent off and was walking back to the dugout/tunnel.
"YOU didn't have to look very long and hard at Mr Matthew Simmons of Thornton Heath to conclude that Eric Cantona's only mistake was to stop hitting him. The more we discovered about Mr Simmons, the more Cantona's assault looked like the instinctiv e expression of a flawless moral judgement.
No, I'm sorry, I'll start that again. After all, this is still supposed to be a civilised society, in which the first duty of a sporting hero is to provide an example for children. And Mr Simmons, 20 years old, a double-glazing fitter with an alleged history of neo-Nazi sympathies and a conviction for attempted robbery with violence, was merely exercising the inalienable right of the English football fan as he played his historic role in the last temptation of Eric Cantona."
the little boys face above cantonas right leg makes me feel a little sad :(
Has the look of "Tsk, youth today"
Simmons is doing a nazi salute!
