Jermaine Pennant: Queue Jumping and Steaming

Liverpool’s Jermaine Pennant and Charlton’s Jerome Thomas got themselves into a spot of bother whilst out in Bournemouth recently.

Anyone not familiar with Bournemouth, please know this: it is a lovely seaside town made for getting in trouble. You’re not allowed to hit the high street unless you are wearing a belt mascarading as a skirt, have been drinking for several days straight and have possibly snogged a dozen people within two hours.  As you might assume, it is one of our favourite places to summer. 

Anyhoo, Mr. P and Mr. T tried to jump the queue at a late night pizza takeaway and it didn’t quite go according to plan.  As drunk bystanders in need of a slice of pizza will do, someone told them to get to the back of the line.  Cut to name calling and shoving and Jerome elbowing a random woman in the face.


The girl, who is not being named, said: “Thomas’s arms were flailing. I got his elbow in the face, which really hurt.”

Police were called and a female cop wrestled the midfielder to the ground.

So, Jerome spent eight hours in the nick, and we’re not sure what happened to Jermaine, though witnesses told the Sun that he was “steaming drunk.“  So steamingly blottered, in fact, that as he was waving his hands around telling everyone to “calm down”, he fell over.  We’re assuming he is still there as we have yet to hear otherwise.

Jermaine is on break from playing for two weeks and has served a jail term for drink-driving. Earlier this year he was arrested for a public order offence.

    Hey hey. Hillsborough and the Sun is a touchy subject for a lot of Liverpool FC fans and the citizens of the city. Let her be serious about it if she wants.

    Woah Mimi… why the seriousness?!

    Jeez, haven’t you noticed that we are all joking around here in a lite atmosphere only zone?! No Debbie Downers here please!

    Agreed. This is not the place to discuss this, so I’m just going to say my peace and if you’d like to discuss it further, feel free to visit my LiveJournal (click my name) and drop and anonymous comment in any post.

    Yes, I am a LFC fan, and yes, I know all about Hillsborough. Clicking that link and hearing those people gives me a choked-up feeling in my throat. However, Kelvin MacKenzie is an asshole, always was an asshole, and always will be an asshole, and that’s that. I can’t say that I will continue to harp on The Sun about this when other publications published the same stories that came from the same source within the Police. It was a big mistake, it was a horrible thing that it was even printed, and that it took the Sun x-amount of years to apologize and did not print a full retraction in big shiny letters the next day was disgusting. But the Sun is a rag, and I don’t expect anything honorable from it. I’ve never given the Sun my money, and I don’t know if I ever will, but I’ll read it’s articles for gossip, because that’s about all it’s good for. And I don’t think you can very well say I’m not a ‘true fan’ on that alone.

    Hey Cate,

    Ignore the following if you are not an LFC fan but if you are then I think you might have to rethink your stance regarding the Sun.

    I know Kickette is not a site to be debating LFC’s stance about the Sun but for further info you can go to and also the Hillsborough links on various LFC sites.

    Quite frankly, I don’t think a person can consider themselves to be an LFC fan and still read the Sun. There is more to the club than a winning team, cute players and their WAGS. LFC is about Liverpool, and the Sun printed lies that did a lot of damage to the city in the aftermath of the tragedy. The decision to boycott the Sun comes from the people of the city (including Evertonians) and not the club. It seems to me the minimum requirement of supporting LFC and also a small price to pay by forsaking a few worthless “shit and giggles.“

    Mara-I love you.

    Mimi-Heh. Well that’s just kind of, you know, ‘sins of the father’ isn’t it? Sure, the Sun’s a rag, but I’ll read it for shits and giggles.

  6. Mimi says:

    Hi Kickette,

    I like your site (although understandably don’t share your love for certain Man U or Chelsea players) and I think you’re very funny. I’m not sure whether you’re a Liverpool fan or not, but if there are any Liverpool fans who are reading this- we do not read or acknowledge any stories in The Sun after their role in the Hillsborough tragedy. I hope the next time you choose to feature a Liverpool player you will not use the Scum as your source of info and/or pics as they usually print lies. Jermaine Pennant played in an exhibition match today that was attended by Rafa so obviously nothing untoward happened no matter what this article implies. Thanks.

    I wanted to say, “Hey, he’s not one of ours” but then I realized that we need a little more spice in the Liverpool salsa. So I’ll just go ahead and say, “Hahaha! Funny sh*t right there!“

    You know this is why I love soccer..these boys get in trouble for juvenial pranks basically and some slutty drunkin frat boy behavior but rare are the true F-ups like in American sports: murders, rapes, dog fighting, lots of domestic volence.

    Tut Tut Tut.. Naughty Boys :p

    meh. our editing monkeys are haters.  thanks for the catch, Cherry!

  11. louisquatorze says:

    Jermaine. Where the hell did I get James from? Maybe I need the monitoring tag…

  12. Jessica says:

    tammyv please! That is really low. No need to go there sweets.

  13. Cherry says:

    Pennant plays for Liverpool and has for quite a while now. Need to update your information.

  14. AnnaD says:

    what a classy pair…such charmers

  15. louisquatorze says:

    Ah yes, Ella, we all know James “alcohol monitoring tag” Pennant would never do anything problematic…

  16. Ella says:

    I feel bad for Jermaine, I’m sure he’s innocent. None of the Liverpool-boys would behave that way, they’re decent lads (The Bellamy/Riise/karaoke incident doesen’t count!).

    Forever Red –
