It’s not the first time the youngsters tweets have been scrutinised by the media and public, back in January he tweeted an apology to the fans for the loan signing of Chamakh from Arsenal, saying it was not his choice. [Read more…]

Ravel Morrison To Explain Tweet

Hammer’s new signing Ravel Morrison has been told to explain his comments made on the popular social networking site Twitter. he will be hauled up in front of West Ham’s top brass today, Thursday to explain his homophobic comments.

Morrison had Wednesday off and will be asked to explain his unsavory comments to non-football personnel, including club secretary Andrew Pincher, today.

The Football Association have written to Morrison, who has yet to play for West Ham following his £650,000 transfer from Manchester United, asking for his ‘observations’ on the matter. The player has until Monday to respond to their request.
Although Ravel Morrison has deleted the offending tweet,the player still faces an FA charge.

The FA’s guidelines on social networking, published earlier this year, read: “Any comments which are deemed improper, bring the game into disrepute, or are threatening, abusive, indecent or insulting may lead to disciplinary action.
“Comments which are personal in nature or could be construed as offensive, use foul language or contain direct or indirect threats aimed at other participants are likely to be considered improper.”

Ravel Morrison In Deep Water Over Tweet

West Ham new boy Ravel Morrison is under fire for posting a homophobic comment on the social networking site Twitter.


Apparently Morrison was provoked on Twitter and he thus responded: “Crack head? Go suck out u little faggot your a guy that talks if u see me you try slap me I’m in Manchester every week.” The tweet was later deleted.

The Football Association have contacted Ravel Morrison to explain his comments on the site. A statement from West Ham said: “Ravel and the club will cooperate fully with the FA’s request and have until Monday evening to respond.”

A spokesperson for the Justin Fashanu Campaign commented:

“It’s disappointing to hear that yet another professional footballer in England has used homophobic language.”

It’s not the first time Morrison has been in hot water either and has seen his career marked with a few choice incidents such as an altercation with his girlfriend and witness intimidation.

Ravel Morrison was tipped to be one of the best talents ever to emerge at Old Trafford since Paul Scholes. He joined the Irons for a fee of around £1m, rising to £2m after Man Utd mangaer Sir Alex Ferguson reportedly ran out of patience with his behaviour.
