'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dyche Talks About Marney Appeal Victory

The Clarets have successfully appealed against the red card given to Dean Marney against Birmingham City last Saturday.

Marney was dismissed on the hour mark by referee Darren Drysdale for a tackle on Paul Robinson in the home game which the Clarets lost 2-1 after holding on to the last minute before Marlon King secured all three points for the Blues.

The midfielder would have been given an automatic three-match ban and maybe more had they lost the appeal.

Manager Sean Dyche told the club's website:

'It does not stop us being aggrieved at the decision, which clearly affected the outcome of the game when we looked good value to go on and get the three points, and I don't feel we have had a fair share of decisions go our way.

'But on this occasion the appeal decision has been a positive one for us and rightly so.

'I made it clear how I felt at the time, and after watching the incident again, and that view has been totally vindicated.

'We put our faith in pursuing the matter through the right channels and we are pleased that the process has gone in our favour.

'We are thankful that we have got a good player available to us to go forward and it's on to the next game to try and compete for another three points at Peterborough.'

RESULT!! Get in, well done chaps for going to appeal!! Just a pity the now confirmed unfair loss of Marney probably cost us three points!

Agree, though it would be difficult to prove that of course. Only saw the tackle on the telly so can't really comment - but pleased that the right decision now appears to have been made.

so what punishment does Mr Drysdale get.... If I made such a huge mistake I would be on capability

Interesting that it came to this. I think that there should now be a review of the ref's performance. From the Beehole end of the Bob Lord stand there were a couple of incidents during the first half (one near half time I think) where our players were on the wrong end of some strong stuff. I'd be interested in the thoughts of the people at the other end of the ground.

The ref should be marked down. cost us at least a point or even 3. At least we have Marney back for Peterborough.

When the game stops for serious incidents, red cards, penalties, goals, each team should have say 3 appeals for video playback. FIFA needs to get up to date with technology as other sports have done. All in the interests of fair play, not to mention spectator excitement at large screen replays.

Totally agree with Cornwall claret, time for technology to be introduced
sheclaret
Probably right - though we would only want it for decisions that went in our favour!

Excellent result , but a shame about the effect on the match and the result. I'll be at the Millenium Stadium tomorrow watching Wales beat Ireland , and there will probably be a few of those incidents where the ref makes the rectangular shape with his hands to signal the need for the playback. This is never seen as a timewaster by anyone, quite the opposite in fact and it adds to the excitement as we wait for the conclusive evidence one way or the other. With the money that is now at stake in football , I can't believe that this technology has still yet to be introduced . The other lead that could be followed is the one where the clock is stopped whenever there is a break in play , and started again on resumption. This would take away the need for the sometimes ludicrous amount of Fergie-time some refs add on at the end.

Totally agree with those calling for goalline/video technology etc! For clubs punching above their weight like Burnley all the time we can do without prat refs making crass decisions!!
