Jones throws party and dwarf – Chelsea, 1994
Ah, Christmas parties. The silly hats, the cheap wine, the dwarf-tossing … In the early 90s the Chelsea squad made the mistake of allowing hardman stopper Vinnie Jones (now Hollywood star Vinnie Jones) to organise the players’ festive festivities, which combined the traditional venue of a west London pub lock-in with a somewhat more off-the-wall idea. “The idea was to pick up a dwarf and hurl him as far as you could,” said the Chelsea striker Tony Cascarino. “I had a go, but I can’t remember how I did. They were heavier than I expected.”
