Its rare that I'll happily defend Arsene Wenger or any of his players, but following the FA throwing out Robbie Keane's appeal about his red card the other day, I'm increasingly pissed off with the FA's appeals panel.
So, they retrospectively ban Eboue for hitting Wayne Bridge, and Frank Lampard agrees that Emmanuel Adebayor didn't punch anyone, but still they don't recind his ban? Surely this is madness. Yeah he reacted badly, but that wasn't what he was sent off for, and if you'd done nothing during a Cup Final you were one-nil down in and got sent off, you'd probably be very very angry too.
So I'm basically filled with anti-FA rage. How do they expect players to play fair when they stick their fingers in their ears when they are asked to do so also. Getting a red card recinded seems to be the hardest thing in the world regardless of video evidence proving innocence.
Still, Cesc Fabregas shouldve been retrospectively banned for being a twat in the same incident.
