Darius Vassell Gets Mugged!

After a night out on the town, you roll out your taxi, pay the driver and expect to get home safely if not a little unstable. However it was a different story for Darius Vassell.

Vassell had attended the club`s Christmas party before being mugged while disputing his taxi fare in the early hours of Sunday morning. His £15,000 watch and £8,000 set of earrings where pinched off the striker, who was left uninjured but "roughed-up".
This is just another example of the way the world is evolving. You can`t even have a good night anymore, in risk of being mugged when you come out a flipping taxi.

I may be a critic of Vassell, but nobody deserves to be mugged. From everybody at Vital Football, we wish Vassell well, and hope he can overcome this traumatic experience.

Never a good thing to hear. Still luckily only possesions were taken and he wasn't hurt.

I'm clearly anachronistic and churlish. But I believe any man who wears £8,000 worth of earrings needs his head examining. There really wasn't anything else more important for you Darius?

It is not the cost of the things it is a case of what a sick society we live in.
