Cole accepts FA charge

Gabbidon, 31, had been insulted on the social networking site in the wake of West Ham's 2-1 defeat against Aston Villa, which leaves the club trailing 17th-placed Wigan by two points with five games to go.

"U know what, f*** the lot of you," Gabbidon tweeted. "U will never get another tweet from me again u just don't get it do you. Bye bye."

The FA charged Carlton Cole with improper conduct after he made comments regarding immigration on his Twitter account. The West Ham striker has admitted the charge.

West Ham had warned their players to be more circumspect over the use of social networking sites in the wake of the Cole incident.
