West Ham must act

Sir: At the risk of sounding like Mr Angry, what is going on at West Ham? They claim that they can't bring John Hartson and Eyal Berkovic together to kiss and make up.

What signals do the tens of thousands of football-mad children receive when they see on television one player kick another in the face. If I assaulted one of my colleagues in the workplace in similar manner I would expect to have my collar felt in double-quick time.

West Ham cannot brush such an assault under the carpet. If the club is unwilling to take action then the local constabulary should intercede. Lack of evidence is not a problem in this case.
