image for Hull City Manager Phil Brown 'Spitting Feathers'
The Spanish 'flu bug

Hull City were unceremoniously dumped out of the FA Cup at the Emirates Stadium by Arsenal last night, but Tigers' boss Phil Brown was said to be spitting feathers by the actions of injured Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, who shouldn't have been anywhere near the stadium as he was suffering from Spanish 'flu, and could have passed his potentially fatal illness on to other players.

Fabregas was initially accused of spitting at Hull assistant Brian Horton, but it has since transpired that the Spaniard was merely 'clearing his throat' of troublesome 'snotty mucus', inadvertantly showering Horton's trainers with green gob.

Horton, at first 'inconsolable', later acknowledged tha Fabregas was ill, but said he should have kept well away from the ground on health grounds, something Brown agreed with. He said:

"That bloke should never have been allowed on the pitch or anywhere near the players' tunnel. My lads are somewhat prone to bugs, and spitting snot like that is asking for trouble."
