Nothing to see here, people...

... and certainly nothing to suggest that, eleven years today, Crystal Palace supporter Matthew Simmons hollered anything more incendiary than 'Off you go, Cantona - it's an early bath for you...'
And yet, here is the over-reaction it occasioned, alongside a fair few more tasty-looking tackles...
Though somehow missing the same night's grievous bodily harm on Jurgen Klinsmann, by Mark Bosnich (a popular figure at White Hart Lane always, oh yes...), and the earlier attack on Patrick Battiston by Harald Schumacher, at the 1982 World Cup - how the man still walks the streets freely, I shall never know...
But, anyway... Er, enjoy...
