Ludicrous Kompany Red Card Goes To Appeal

Ludicrous Kompany Red Card Goes To Appeal

Manchester City FC have confirmed that the club has lodged an appeal with the Football Association against the straight red card Vincent Kompany shipped yesterday...

The City Captain was dismissed in the 12th minute for what Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick and subsequently Chris Foy adjudged to have been a dangerous ball winning tackle.

For their part, the FA state that a hearing will take place in London before Liverpool arrive at an Etihad Stadium engulfed in defiant high spirits for Wednesday night's League Cup Semi-Final First leg.

Every man and his dog knows it was a bad decision - hell, even most rags admit it was wrong for Foy to send Kompany off, with Nicky Butt saying he thought it was the best tackle of the season! But do you think that will make any difference to the FA? Nope, they will blindly back their incompetent official, despite his howlers at Chelsea/QPR and Stroke/Spurs. If they backed down now they would be admittting that one of their officials is basically incompetent and not worthy of his position in the game. And they'll never admit that, will they? We can all live in hope, but I'm not very optimistic about having the red overturned - I've probably got more chance of winning the Euro Millions draw.

Good luck Vinnie. Hopefully common sense prevails.

Their odious**** of a manager needs fining for his lies about Kompany, 'ive seen him do it a few times and he's gotten away with it' . He's clearly trying to influence any appeal. The idiot is a born liar. Good luck Vinny, you'll need it as long as *****s like him are in the game

Vinnie should sue him for slander.

Result due tomorrow afternoon. If the appeal is rejected, the it's time to accept that if we're going to win anything this season (and indeed in the future), we'll have to do it the very hard way...

Rooney says it was a two footed tackle and therefore a red, so if Rooney says it was a red, it must be true and he indicated as much to Mr Foy and Mr Foy says Rooney is always right and sent off poor Vinnie. I mean even after seeing the replays Taggart and Shrek still insist it was a red. Are we that biased, perhaps their penalty wasn't a pen, no, we all agree on that one, Mr Foy got the decision right there. So whose is the red faced this morning.

Wow, that Giggs tackle looks even worse now than I remembered Stu.

Spot on Robson. The distasteful scot has always said he will do whatever it takes to give his team an advantage and not necessarily in the match in question. Losing Vincent for the rest of the month is more of a problem against Spuds on a day when the stretfords play Arsenal. He is a cheat himself, so if the scouse Bruce Forsyth. Let us do it the hard way and let us do it playing the kind of football that Stretford Wimbledon can only dream of.

Ban appeal was unsuccessful. No surprise there to be fair. Was correct decision
