I'd like to see our club give a decent sum towards Sean's care too. If we can afford to throw away £250k for Scudmore's farewell gift then how about an equally generous donation towards Sean Cox? He's going to need care for the rest of his life, that's going to be costly and I'd love to see the club step in and help. 

I agree 100% & far be it for me to stick up for the club what with what's gone on this week but they did contribute circa £30K (pocket change to them) after the Cardiff game...

A man has been charged with assaulting Liverpool FC supporter Sean Cox, police have said.

Merseyside Police said Simone Mastrelli, 30, from Rome, had been extradited after being arrested on a European Arrest Warrant in Italy in connection with the assault outside Anfield ahead of the Champions League match between Liverpool FC and AS Roma on April 24 last year.

Father-of-three Mr Cox, 53, from Dunboyne in Co Meath, Ireland, suffered catastrophic head injuries in the attack.

He has been recovering at the National Rehabilitation Hospital in Dun Laoghaire.

A force spokesman said: "Mastrelli was extradited back to England yesterday and has been charged with Section 20 assault and violent disorder.

”He has been remanded in custody to appear at South Sefton Magistrates' Court at 2pm today."

Fucking disgracefully lenient sentence.

It is. But it isn't. 

 

He could only do a max of 5 years. The judge has to apply the sentencing guidelines. For a high harm/high culpability offence, the starting point is 4 years. 

 

The judge has to knock off time for his guilty plea. Around a third of the sentence in the circumstances of this case/guilty plea. For it to be 3 and a half years after the reduction for a guilty plea suggests that the judge has practically sentenced as severely as he could under the powers given to him by law and that he's added some extra time on to the 4 years due to aggravating factors.

Can't believe his defence lawyer was trying to say that he should get a lighter sentence because he's a Catholic & went to communion, what the actual fuck? This isn't the dark ages pal.

 

I hope he comes out of there with an arsehole like a blood orange.

 

Scum.

I know someone who works in the prison where he was on remand. They kept him segregated from everyone else. Apparently he's a cocky twat who thinks nothing will happen to him.

Fair enough. Doesn't make this an appropriate sentence for the crime, though. Sean Cox's family will need to live with this for the rest of their lives while the lowlife piece of shit that attacked him will be free in a few years.

There was a quiz on tonight for Sean which raised over €9,000.

 

Our team won as well, which was nice.

Seán Cox begins the next stage of his rehabilitation journey this week.

 

The Liverpool supporter suffered serious injuries after an unprovoked attack ahead of the Champions League semi-final match against AS Roma at Anfield in April 2018.

 

After almost 18 months of treatment in Ireland, Seán will now move to a specialist neurological facility in the north of England for an initial twelve-week rehabilitation programme focused on developing his speech and movement.

“Seán has made progress over the past 18 months but it is extremely slow,” said Seán’s wife, Martina Cox.

 

“He finds it very difficult to express himself verbally and, while it seems he can hear and understand more, his speech remains very challenged. It is unlikely that he ever will walk again, which is difficult to accept for someone as active as Seán used to be.

 

“On the positive side, he remains an avid sports fan and is always in a great mood when watching Dublin GAA or Liverpool on the television.

 

“We are about to start a renovation of our house in Dunboyne which will hopefully be finished by Christmas, making it wheelchair accessible and installing specialist equipment which will mean Seán can spend time in the

I wish he hadn't been put in the position he is, but made up for him and the progress he has made. Also great to see the club and players helping him on the road to recovery.
