'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tate & Trundle Arrested

Lee Trundle and Alan Tate have been arrested as well as charged by the FAW following their actions after the Football League Trophy win on Sunday.

The FAW have launched an investigation about their antics, which involved Trundle wearing a t-shirt showing a cartoon of a person urinating on a blue Cardiff shirt and both Tate and Trundle holding up a welsh flag which read 'F*** Off Cardiff'.

'The Football Association of Wales has concluded that charges will be issued against Swansea City FC and two of their players Lee Trundle and Alan Tate,' said an FAW statement issued by secretary general David Collins.

The club have said they will not punish the players involved with fines and Jackett said: "I don't think they realised what they were doing. It's something both Lee and Alan did in the heat of the moment and, if they have caused any offence, it's something they regret.

"But they will not be disciplined by the club because I felt it was a spur-of-the-moment situation."


Following the two cup wins, Kenny Jackett and the team can now focus totally on gaining promotion to the Championship and the Swansea boss has received a boost with the news that Keith Lowe's loan has been extended until the end of the season.

Thanks to the Football Association of WALES we could lose 2 players that have played a big part in our season so far.

BY THE WAY WELL DONE SWANSEA GR8 DAY ON SUN AND TRUNDLE N TATE DID THE RIGHT THING
jack till i die
You can not condone what they did. It was incitement, that's what the police will be looking into. The thing is, if it's one of your players, great, he's one of the lads and loves the club. But if you are from the opposition then something like this is really going to wind you up. The worst thing that there is no love lost between Swansea and Cardiff and this won't help.

Don't see how Trundle and Tate could relate to the rivalry. Not really. Innocents. Boys will be boys. Cardiff getting worried. They know what it's like to be second best. SCFC the last top flight team in Wales. CCFC will do anything to stop this happening again.

i suppose you reckon cardiff planted the t-shirts for trundle and tate to wear! i think it would be hilarious if they got banned for this!

Having been at the match, I find it strange that if this flag had been waved in the crowd for over 2 hours the owner would have been immediately ejected. Close circuit TV would have picked it up. The T shirt? If you've seen the picture you will notice NOBODY is around Trundle. Could an opportunist photographer have helped him make a 'mistake of judgement'? And don't Everton play in blue? Strange... where did these objects come from?

The media have blown this all out of propotion. Very little airtime regarding the game, just a quick glimpse of the goals, 95% of the report was not about the game it was about trundle. The facts are: The Swans fans behaved impecably, no fighting with any Cardiff fans, so nothing to report - bad news day for them, so what do they do? JUMP on this story & blow it all out of propotion - hey presto - the press have a story. The newspaper pictures that followed showed Trundle & the arm of Tate. Why show only Trunds & not tate? Because Lee is high profile - known throughout the ******ry, not may people have heard of Tate so wouldn't be as big a story. What about the effegy of a Swans fan in a Swans shirt being kicked to "death" in the centre circle at Ninnan Park. What about the cruel message about Terry Coles & Alan Davies POSTED ON THE SCREEN AT THE MILLENNIUM STADIUM during Cardiff's playoff game there. NOTHING DONE!!! What about Sam Hamman's comments about Cardiff being Swansea's big brother & winning small trophies? WHAT ABOUT THE AYOTOLLA - That is an insult to the whole of Britain. Cardiff, Hamman and their fans think they are a cut above everyone else and really need to take a reality check.
truejack

troika dog
it was quite stupid of them in the first place. i dont think the welsh assembly will take to much attention to this, just a fine and it'll be sorted i think.
mattyjones

youngs121
