GOBBER Go­ran Popov will be fined two weeks’

wages af­ter be­ing sent off for spit­ting at Kyle Walker.

The West Br om de­fender is ap­par ently sorr y for aim­ing a throat oys­ter at the Spurs man – and so he should be.

But dock­ing him a few quid isn’t go­ing to make a dif­fer­ence, is it? I sug­gest bring­ing back the stocks.

Set them up out­side the Pre­mier League’s Lon­don HQ and ev­ery time a player spits at an op­po­nent, throw him in the stocks and let his fel­low pros queue up to re­turn the favour.

That’d learn ’em.
