The FA decided to charge Cole after his choice of words on Twitter towards a Spurs fan; the certain tweet came just after West Ham’s 2-2 draw at White Hart Lane. The tweets have since been removed as far as we can see.

Spurs fan Stuart Hardy said in his tweet, “Hi @CarltonCole1 when your own team-mates don’t kick the ball out when you’re lying injured for 2 mins, you think it’s time to call it a day?” The Cole replied back saying, “[Bad Word] off you [Bad Word]” and, although he later deleted the tweet, the FA handed out the fine and warned him about his future conduct.

Carlton tweeted a few hours ago that he would just be a robot on Twitter from now on because showing emotions gets him into trouble. Fans responded to this saying what ever happened to the freedom of speech, others said if he is dealt crap why can’t he give it back. One Twitter user said he should never change who he is.
