Well shocked and stunned. Not in a million yrs did I think that appeal would work

Genuinely surprised... the FA barely ever overturn anything.

 

Hopefully the players can use the 'injustice' to fire themselves up and put a few past an abject Reading side

Maybe they didn't deem it a yellow card and then not a case for a straight red? I have no idea how they work this stuff out.

 

Ironically I bet 9/10 of us would have said straight red all day and wouldn't have challenged it.

You mean the first yellow card? I'm pretty sure these appeals base don't base decisions on anything but the incident in question. But even if they did, the first yellow wouldn't have affected giving a straight red. The way the ref saw it, it was a red card regardless of the fact he'd already been booked for a high boot (which is the only decision I thought was a bit harsh, albeit by the letter of the law was a booking).

 

I agree though. I don't think I've seen a single fan on any platform come out and explain how they think it could be overturned, everyone seems pretty shocked by it, especially given our prior with the FA for appeals. Although it's hard to see many people talking about the decision itself within the cesspool of hatred and insults about Rudy.

I'm just trying to get my head around why nothing is being done haha

 

Like have we appealed against it being a yellow? So that it's not a red? Or was it a straight red rather than a second yellow?

It was a straight red and since the challenge wasn’t a red cars when seeing it in replay they’ve taken away that red and he comes away from the match with just the first yellow card. Had the ref given him a second yellow nothing would likely have been done.

I don't think you can appeal yellow cards at all, whether they're first or second so you're right. You can only appeal straight red cards, regardless of whether they've already been booked.

Bit of a strange decision, I'm pretty amazed they overturned the red but can they not say it should have only been a yellow and he would then serve a one match ban? Their procedures are usually stupid so they can probably only say straight red or nothing otherwise I don't see how they say it's not even a yellow card.

Nope, they can only make a decision on the refs actual decision.

So in the end they actually did the right thing. It wasn't a straight red.

    • Barcelona first team players have a agreed to a paycut of £110 Million (per year). This is on top of the squad agreeing to defer £45 Million in bonuses. There was talk at the beginning of this month that if they couldn't cut around £150 Million off the wage bill for this season, that the threat of bankruptcy was very real.
    • As others have said, I would guess that the team that finished the derby game will likely start this fixture, with those who were subbed being introduced late on. The 5 subs rule allows us to comfortably rotate an entire attacking setup. Very useful if you have a good enough manager to utilise it.
    • If you dont mind a short drive get yourself booked into Art La Vey up towards Newcastle. That guy is head and shoulders above most in Boro. Mark at Nothingsacred in Stockton is class if you're wanting some dotwork done

    • Knowing the quality of the Daily Fail, they probably have Fulham as the Premiership club wanting him. It boils down to the lad's views on his future, his contract ends there ends in the summer, so everything in his hands, If he does not fancy move, then "agreement on terms could not be reached. If he wants away, not a lot we can do to stop him but there are not that many top rem teams looking for keepers, so it should be fairly easy to work out likely suspects, assuming not jut agent talk trying to get us to make decent offer in future
