By far the most talked about event of the week was Eden Hazard’s dropkick-of-death to Swansea ball boy Charlie Morgan. Charged for violent conduct by The FA, Hazard faces time on the sidelines and the lad’s twitter followers boomed to outnumber Swansea’s Official page – ironically unfair outcome? You decide.
On the flipside, you can look at the young lad as a bit of a wind up merchant. Having pre-empted an act of time wasting before the game on his twitter account, in hindsight Morgan’s acting was far from the quality characteristic of his namesake Mr. Freeman. It suffices to say he shouldn’t be expecting any Academy Award nominations just yet.
