Object Thrown Onto Emirates Pitch During Match

Chelsea's champion-quality 3-0 victory at the Emirates yesterday saw the club run up a five-point lead over nearest rivals Manchester United, while the vanquished Arsenal remain fourth; most gallingly for the Gunners, that's a point behind rivals Tottenham — St Totteringham's Day could come late this season. As if getting royally thumped at home in the biggest London derby of the season wasn't bad enough, Arsenal are to be investigated by the Football Association over allegations that an object was thrown onto the field during the game. The ofending object — a camera, according to the BBC source — was reportedly aimed in the direction of Frank Lampard's head from the direction of the home support. Of all the silly things to lob onto the pitch, a camera is among the most foolish: investigators shouldn't have too much troubling identifying Gooner Gary from his happy grin in the pre-match photos.
