Re: Young Bournemouth fan bleeding

I missed the hero in action. Just saw the kid dripping blood and stewards on the mike saying he was on his own and been attacked He was with what i presumed was wife and his dad (an old chap) outside cricket club entrance. Probably same jokers that bullied 2 greeks on leyland road after olympiakos.
