Charged with assault
#1
Two Sheffield United players have been summonsed to appear in court over violence at the Championship play-off semi-final against Nottingham Forest.

Trouble flared after fans invaded the pitch when the Blades lost a penalty shoot-out at the City Ground on 17 May,

Nottinghamshire Police said Oli McBurnie, 26, and Rhian Brewster, 22, would be charged with common assault.

The players are due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates' Court on 28 July.

That's ridiculous. I hope the ones who are bringing the assault charges are also in court for invading the pitch.

Think the lad who attacked Sharp has already been imprisoned, but in those circumstances they had to protect themselves although at times Oli is a bit of an idiot

I don't think anyone is bringing the charges, for assault like we saw from McBurnie, the Police do not need a victim to agree with or bring the charges. While I accept the self defence argument during these pitch invasions, what McBurnie did was over the top and looked like he was on the offence not defence in terms of who was attacking who. He has previous for this sort of behaviour, that doesn't help him.
