Twitter Reacts to Harry Toffolo Betting Charges
“Just waiting to see him only get half the ban time Ivan Toney got and still be allowed to train with his team.”
“It’s ok Forest fans – it will take over a season before the FA do FA about it.”
“And in that time he was playing in the SKY BET championship, make it make sense”
“If you don’t want football players to gamble, maybe don’t adorn stadiums and shirts in gambling sponsors. The FA have created their own problem here.”
“Forgot to mention in the headline that his offences took place nearly a decade ago. Christ what age was he then? Let him of ffs.”
