We all saw the viral video at the weekend of a Chelsea fan being a bit of an annoying knob and trying to start on all the West Ham fans before their match at the London Stadium and then getting promptly knocked our for his troubles, but the story has taken an even more bizarre turn after it turned out that he wasn’t even a Chelsea fan in the first place.

The news came courtesy of his boss at Elite Electrical Contracting Ltd Gregg Barnes, who for some reason decided to do an interview with The Daily Mail about his young 22 year old employee Bill Tarbuck. Here’s what Gregg had to say about him:
I have spoken to Bill. He has gotten a bit of grief and banter, but nobody condones what happened. Everyone is of the impression that he deserved it because he found himself in a silly position.
In the four or five years he has worked with us, there has never been any sign he is anything like that. We have high hopes for him in the future and becoming a central part of our plans moving forward. He never has time off and is always on time.
The weird part is that he is actually an (AFC) Wimbledon fan. He just went with a group of mates and got in with the wrong crowd. He is very sorry for what he has done.
I have told him that he needs to move on from it and get his head down. He has been sent home for a week and has to be on light duties for a week when he returns. Hopefully he will learn from that and it will be a life lesson for him. Nobody has been hurt.
Well I suppose that’s a fairly nice interview about the kid and he probably got paid a month’s wages for it as well, so where’s the harm? Kinda funny that Bill isn’t even a Chelsea fan though and was just trying to impress his mates by goading all the West Ham fans.
It’s also very impressive that he could even get into that sort of mindset considering the game kicked off at 12:30 pm on a Saturday, but you can imagine he was probably up all night on a bender or something. Classic Bill Tarbuck really.
