The following statement appeared yesterday on the Welsh Football Association website:
'A Disciplinary Panel met at the Football Association of Wales (FAW) offices on Tuesday, 29th April 2008 to consider a Claim of Wrongful Dismissal for the sending-off for serious foul play of Darren Purse of Cardiff City FC in the Football League Championship match, Burnley FC v Cardiff City FC played on 26th April 2008.
'Having carefully considered the written and DVD evidence submitted, the Panel decided that the 'Claim' be upheld and the three match standard punishment be withdrawn.'
What a farcical biased decision that was!
Typical of the Welsh sheep to stick together and try and do everything in their power to get a Welsh team to win at Wembley in the FA Cup. Purse will now be able to play in this game and quite frankly it stinks!
Scandalous and I think the strongest representation should be made by lodging a complaint to the FAW via their website and I am asking now that all Clarets do so and any other fair-minded footy fan neutrals who saw the tackle and the aftermath:
Complain to FAW-Click here
I think it is time that Cardiff, Swansea and Wrexham were brought under the umbrella of the English FA if they play in our leagues and let the FAW look after the likes of all the small fry playing in the Welsh league.
The Welsh clubs in the English leagues might then experience some fairness.
Remember Joey Gudjonsson's sending off after he was dismissed against Preston last December? Was that anywhere near as bad as the damage Purse did to Cole? I bet if he played for Cardiff he wouldn't have got a fourth game added to his ban for a frivolous appeal.
What about Lafferty's sending off against Arsenal?
All we can do is complain, so inundate the stupid FAW and lets show them we are not going to take such outrageous decisions lightly.
