Ferguson 2, Thieves 0
2001 At-Risk Survivors
Confirmed by Darwin

Loz says, "The soccer player in question, Duncan Ferguson, was also charged with Grievous Bodily Harm for headbutting a police man four years ago."

(January 2001) Two men were taken to a Liverpool hospital on Saturday night after trying to burgle the house of pro soccer player Duncan Ferguson. Some years ago Ferguson, who earned the nicknames Drunken Ferguson and Duncan Disorderly, served 6 months in jail for grievous bodily injury to an opponent. This 6'4" kamikaze centre forward is arguably the most violent player in British pro football. The police must have arrived quickly as only one of the would-be burglars required hospitalization. © 1994 - 2017
