At last we are getting somewhere. Portsmouth have finally – five days after the event – have said they will now make a complaint to the Sweet FA over the abuse aimed at Sol Campbell during last Sunday’s Portsmouth vs Tiny Totts game.”Both Sol and the club feel no player should be subjected to personal abuse of this nature and that it has no place in football,” said a Portsmouth statement.
“The club will be urging the FA to look into this as a matter of urgency and will co-operate fully with any investigations that take place either by the FA or by Hampshire Police, who are conducting their own investigation.”
So the muddled mess continues. Hampshire police said they could do nothing because too many Tiny Totts fans were involved in the abuse. Then they said it was up to the Sweet FA. The Sweet FA said they could not act unless Portsmouth asked them to. Then Portsmouth said they could not act unless Sol wanted them to.
Now the police say they would investigate claims of racial and homophobic abuse aimed at Sol.
So the circles revolve around the circles around the circles. Whether this is the moment when finally, ultimately, the evil that is within the Tiny Totts club is dealt with, we will find out over time.
