After Papiss Cisse scored for Newcastle last night and the players were celebrating some coins were thrown at the Newcastle players, and one hit captain Fabricio Coloccini in the head.

And after the game last night John Carver was none too happy, and claimed that Coloccini could have been blinded in one eye by what appeared to be a coin:
“It just can’t happen can it?” “It has got to be taken out of the game. What is disappointing from their point of view is that they have an unbelievable crowd here, an unbelievable atmosphere>”
“It is a fanatical group of supporters in that corner.” “It takes one idiot to throw a coin, I have seen it and it misses Colo’s eye by an inch – another inch and it could blind him.”
And Palace manager Alan Pardew chimed in with this comment after the game:
“I saw the referee come over to the linesman and hand him something.” “It would be a shame if that was an incident, a random fan acting poorly.”
“If that is the case and that is unusual for this club if that is the case because we have a great record of behavior so I am sure we will look into it.”
The Argentine International was near the Holmesdale Road stand which was full of the local Palace supporters.

There needs to be an inquiry into this by Crystal Palace and the local police, and those who threw the coins need to be dealt with in an appropriate manner.
There is no place in today’s game for this kind of stupid and reckless behavior.
