Zaba Arsenal Red Overturned

Zaba Arsenal Red Overturned



MCFC have just announced that the English Football Association have withdrawn Pablo Zabaleta's three match suspension following a ludicrous red card at Arsenal...

City confirmed:

'Pablo Zabaleta's red card at Arsenal on Wednesday night has been overturned on appeal by the Football Association.
At a Regulatory Commission hearing today, a claim for wrongful dismissal from Zabaleta was upheld.

As a result, Zabaleta's three match suspension has been withdrawn and the Argentine defender is now available to face Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.'


Zabaleta has been on fire for City this season and it would have been a travesty had he been sanctioned as a result of Bakari Sagna's pathetically instigated confrontation. That'll be another 'defeat' for Arsenal fans to seethe over this weekend!

Head for the VMC Match Day Experience Forum for the build up and beyond to second placed City's Sunday break from league hostilities as we face Leicester and Svennis in a sold out FA Cup tie.

You have to question yet again the standard of refereeing and linesmanship here. Justice done.

That's ludicrous, he stood there while Sagna repeatidly nutted him, obviously that's worth a red *eye roll*.

Wonders never cease, these appeals usually always fail for us. But this was a stonewall bad decision so it would have been hard to reject the appeal.

Apparently Zabelata insulted Sagna which is why he lost his rag. One can easily imagine what that low-life would have said, but Bacary will take his punishment like a man. Which is more than can be said for some of your players. I mean, Jo. Lol! I've never seen such girly simulation in all my born days.

Ah Wyn c'mon you're an Arsenal fan, surely you should be used to simulation. You don't know the first thing about Zaba so why are you calling him a low life? He's not the one that threw his head or refused a peace offering is he?

I know 3 things about Zabaleta. 1. He's slow 2. He can't tackle 3. He has a nasty mouth. That's enough for me to dislike him.
