Laursen has never had any bother from the Everton fans as far as I'm aware and he's never been goaded or shouted at with any real meaning.
So why did he feel the need to goad the fans on Villa's second goal. By all means celebrate the goal that your team has just scored, but why turn to the home fans and deliberately goad them?
Isn't there something in FA rules prohibiting this?

When Villa scored the second, we were still celebrating our second, with a mass rendition of "You?re not singing any more" echoing around Goodison. Surprisingly, this stopped as soon as we allowed Barry all the room in the world, and Carew got the wrong side of Lescott to head home.
I think Laurson was just cupping his ear to the crowd as if to say "Who?s not singing now?"
Footballers get everything from mild banter to hate-filled bile thrown in their direction by ?supporters? all round the country. Personally, I have no problem when they respond in a light-hearted (if pointed) way as Laurson did. It wouldn?t surprise me if the ?fans? most offended by his actions are the exact same ones who?ll give any opposition player the worst kind of abuse.
If it offended you, ask yourself if it was as bad as things you?ve done/said towards opposition players at GP.
