The 1st rule of Fight Club is you do not talk about Fight Club!
Liverpool’s Jamie Carragher and Alvaro Arbeloa have joined the ranks of footballers to have shamed themselves on the pitch after a bust up during their side’s 2-0 victory against West Bromwich Albion.
As Albion were sent tumbling back to the Championship, the Liverpool duo squared up to each other as Carragher’s frustrations appeared to get the better of him.
Albion’s Marc-Antoine Fortune was left unmarked at the far post and a fuming Carragher pointed the finger of blame at Arbeloa.
Shouting at his teammate, Carragher shoved Arbeloa in the chest and as the Spaniard responded with equal force, Xabi Alonso was forced to pull the pair apart.
It is not the first time team-mates have swung at each other in the heat of battle. (Daily Telegraph)
If you want to see some tasty videos of players laying into each other then I strongly suggest you CLICK HERE to the Telegraph article which includes some great video clips!
Should the Ref have sent both players off? Probably not and it’s hard to get angry about Jamie Carragher’s passionate efforts to get his fellow teammates to display more heart, however it’s probably best if he sits down with Arbeloa after the game and perhaps offer to buy him a San Miguel!
P.S – If you haven’t seen Fight Club, it’s a great movie, i for one was surprised when it turned out that Brad Pitt was in fact merely a construct of Edward Norton’s fragile mind…oops!
