ALL-TIME BAD BOYS

Love 'em or hate 'em, these guys make the soccer world go round.

Southampton has launched an investigation into allegations that goalkeeper Artur Boruc threw a plastic water bottle at fans during Sunday's Premier League match against Tottenham.

The south-coast club is also looking into claims that the Polish player swore at supporters after conceding the second goal in the 2-1 loss at St. Mary's Stadium in his home debut.

Southampton says it is ''investigating allegations of an incident involving Artur Boruc that occurred towards the end of the first half.''

A statement adds that it ''takes such allegations extremely seriously and will deal with the matter in the appropriate manner.''

Boruc joined Southampton last month on a one-year deal.
