Am I missing something? A fan shouts and pokes Vieira for some time and when Vieira retaliates, the media jump on his back.
I would like to see how many people will just stand an laugh while someone is poking them in the face.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not sure what they should expect. We just saw Billy Sharp getting horrifically assaulted.

I hope no action is taken.

anyone remember Monica Seles getting stabbed at a tennis match years ago . a flipping tennis match! A big name player or manager is going to get seiously hurt soon by one of these nutters running on the pitch, some lout will want his 5 minutes of fame for knocking out or slashing a household name.

No one wants fences again but this is serious now. The force that thug ran at Billy Sharp could have caused a serious head/ spine injury

Good for Viera -hope F. A go after the culprit and not him.

Unfortunately with the way the world has changed people very rarely face the consequences their actions deserve. I’ve seen many gobby idiots who a few years ago a good smack in the mouth would have helped, but these days you can’t get away with it.

I'd be very surprised if that got anywhere near a criminal court. The football authorities may be a different matter, though.

20 May 2022 15:06:22
The little scumbag taunting him was in the wrong for sure. Notwithstanding the fact he didn't touch viera he was goading and taunting him on a pitch he has no business to be on.
Vera was also in the wrong. But I hope common sense prevails and the fan gets a ban and views gets a warning.
It does not look to me to be worth pursuing from a criminal point of view but you never know these days the worlds gone mad.

Hi Ken. The idiot fan was poking Vieira with his phone and finger. Why was he goading anyone when he should've been celebrating his team's survival?
But my point is that if you do any search on the incident, all you read from these sensationalist idiots in the media is how Vieira was kicking a fan! The thug who was goading vieira deserved to be kicked and if Everton find his identity, they should take action. Boyfromburrenway, totally agree, there's going to be an incident one day if this is not addressed.

Hi triple A. I don't think he touched him but as I said he is a fool had no business there and was in the wrong. The world has changed since clough punched a fan for pitch invading and not always for the better.
If the person is a minor for example it will not be good news for viera.
It's a mad world.

20 May 2022 18:08:04
He was not a minor, but if he was, then hope his dad clouts him.

All I can say is, Eric Cantona.

20 May 2022 22:40:32
Eric jumped over a barrier to attack a fan he was in no immediate threat from.

The difference is the guy is in Patrick's face and aggressive. Patrick can perceive an assault (apprehended fear of unlawful immediate violence) and can act under common law in self defence.

Two very different situations.

21 May 2022 07:31:28
Agree with all your sentiments. This is different from the Cantona incident as Cantona jumped over the barrier to the stands, while the fan was just doing normal idiot fan stuff. Being on the pitch however is different level. Viera should have punched his nose in. You don't go fondling with a tiger's balls and act surprised when your face gets chewed off.

21 May 2022 11:05:33
What Vieira did was self defence, fair play to him.

21 May 2022 11:05:53
Haha how can anybody compare it to cantona?

Vieira didn’t kick him hard enough imo.

21 May 2022 19:21:49
Did you see what happened to Billy Sharp? Crazy.

How is viera supposed to know if he being accosted by an iritant or a dangerous thug.

It's great to see the fans on the pitch celebrating getting to a Wembley playoff final, I don't think we should sanitise football to the point that fans sit quietly and clap. But surely the opposing team should be allowed the time to get off the pitch safely. Or security should run on to escort the players.

22 May 2022 12:58:22
Agree with your comments guys, what Cantona did was wrong and he and United paid the price for it.
The Everton idiot, was poking at Viera and you can see it clearly on a large TV screen that his hand was either touching or very close to Viera's face. Viera tried to walk away, but the Everton idiot kept doing it. How was Viera to know that this so called "fan" was not going to attack him?
Anyone would have defended themselves in this situation. If the FA charge Viera, then shame on them and on our society, as the innocent party is being punished.
