England Player in Cocaine Claim

    So who is it then ??

    The Football Association is asking people to come forward with information after an unnamed England player was reported to have been "kicked out of a nightclub for taking cocaine".

    The allegation was made in the Sun newspaper by a "club insider".

    The paper alleges the Premier League player took the drug during a pre-Christmas team get-together after an away game.

    The FA can ban players found to have breached its social drugs policy.

    The starting point for a first time offence is 0-3 months and the FA has the power to suspend players indefinitely if they have breached the rules multiple times.

    Incidents of doping in English football are "rare" the FA says, but the governing body insists it "remains a priority for The FA to find and sanction anyone found taking performance-enhancing or recreational drugs".

    An FA spokesman added: "We encourage anyone with information about any anti-doping violation in football to report it to The FA."

    Current England squad player?

    If it’s just a player who has played for England previously then my money is on Wheelchair!

    The report says that the club concerned has been in turmoil all year and results haven’t been great so doesn’t sound like one of ours.

    Then again it’s The Sun so it’s probably a fairy story anyway.

    I wonder if bans for cocaine are still a regular thing and hidden under 'mystery injuries' by clubs?

    My first thought was Leicester because there have been a lot of rumours about the manager getting fired and that dressing room has been through all sorts of turmoil. But who knows. As long as it's not one of our players, I don't care.

    my first thought was west ham, but when you think about it, it's not turmoil at all, it's par for the course, they are consistently a shambles

    plus, it probably is Wheelchair

    We have more English players in our team than any other club … the odds are stacked against us …. but f I was to guess I would say its got to be Jamie Carragher wearing his pink polo gobbing at people.

    Quite. It's not performance enhancing, there's a possibility that it could hamper performance and it's recreational. So the FA should stay the fudge out of people's business.

    But it makes you talk scouse instantly ...speak really fast, slurr, and then take long pauses.

    I agree. But they are role models aparently :)

    Ironicly don't most clubs have pots of cafine tablets that they encourage players to take pre-game to enhance performance?

    If Chelsea players don't get lifetime bans for murdering people then drug use doesn't even make the scale.
