    Crystal Palace keeper caught in a photograph gesturing a Nazi salute...even better was his excuse...

    'Yesterday evening I had a meal with my team-mates and we had a grouph photograph. I waved and shouted at the person taking the picture to get on with it and at the same time put my hand over my mouth to make the sound carry.

    'It’s been brought to my attention that frozen in a moment by the camera this looks like I am making a completely inappropriate type of salute.

    'I can assure everyone I would never ever do that and any resemblance to that kind of gesture is absolutely coincidental. Love and peace Wayne.'

    Make your own mind up, however don't you put your hand to the side of your mouth to make your voice carry and the hurry up sign is the rolling wrist/hand with a bent elbow?

    Anyway, the photo in all its glory...

    Leave Wayne Henazi alone. He's totally innocent.

    At least Hennessy looks like he’s enjoying himself.

    Didn't realise Palace had their night outs at The Bodleian!
    Wayne is obviously reading Modern History!

    I think we can guess the food order;
    "So that's two egg mayonnaise,a prawn Goebbels,a Herman Goering and four Colditz salads."

    If we can’t make absolute hay of this when we play them we should really give up.

    WW2 themed songs for 90 minutes please.

    A bit of rehashing of the Dad's Army theme song....

    Who do you think you are kidding Mr. Hennessey,
    If you think we're on the run?
    We are the boys who will stop your little game.
    We are the boys who will make you think again.
    'Cause who do you think you are kidding Mr. Hennessey,
    If you think old Watford's done?
    Mr. Gracia goes off to town on the eight twenty-one,
    But he comes home each evening and he's ready with his gun.
    So who do you think you are kidding Mr. Hennessey,
    If you think old Watford's done?

    Two world wars and one play off, doodah.
     
  11. I don't see what all the fuss is about - the last time a Palace keeper gave a Nazi salute, no-one batted an eyelid...

    I don't know what I enjoyed more, Iniesta's photo or Hennesy's excuse! Both superbly lacking in self-awareness! Great stuff!!

    This is a dilemma.
    I'm not sure whether to go to the match as Herr Flick of The Gestapo,The italian Captain ( not Buffon!) or Constable Crabtree.
    Probably doesn't matter, as I'll be behind a ruddy pillar,like the rest of you!

    If everyone goes dressed as a Nazi it’s almost impossible to imagine how the day may go badly.

    Ofcourse that is how everyone waves to attract attention or shouts out to somebody..

    Maybe we should all try it next time we want to tell someone to hurry up...

    Why I did it myself this evening on court, as I spoke to a pupil.
    However it is a bit tricky when you're navigating your tank through Hoddesdon!
     
  19. Read his excuse and this immediately came to mind..

    Nazi salute, fake tash and bunny ears. He has an unfair advantage being a keeper with three hands.

    What a genius programme that was. Such a shame about Dermot Morgan.

    Not guilty, by a 2-1 majority:

    The panel found Mr Hennessey guilty of being a bit of a thicko though:

    Maybe the Nazi Party were similarly simply trying to attract the waiter during the 1933-45 period.

    Classic. They should show him ‘the Germans’ episode of Fawlty Towers. If he’s telling the truth it would be like showing a spaniel calculus.

    That's right up there with "the dog ate my homework".
    Pathetic.

    "I can't be guilty, I'm too stupid" is definitely an interesting defence.

    I didn’t know what a Nazi salute was, but I did one anyway. Surely he can’t be that thick.

    What's more ridiculous is 2 on the panel believed him.

    He is either a genius or more to the point has a genius of a legal team to dream up that defence or a complete and utter thicko....

    Except that one of our dogs did actually eat my daughter's homework once. Luckily, her teacher saw the funny side and took pity on how cripplingly embarrassed I was.

    If he is claiming to be so stupid that he has no knowledge of Nazism, then he should be made to study the GCSE History syllabus to educate himself.
