Lloyd Sam Appeal Fails!

Lloyd Sam Appeal Fails!

Amazingly, in my humble opinion anyway, and in no means a biased one the Addicks have had their appeal against midfielder Lloyd Sam's red card against Hull dismissed, something that I find unbelievable.

Tigers skipper Ian Ashbee had gone in late on Lloyd Sam and then appeared to kick him not once but twice, to compound matters he then looked to hold him round the neck, which didn't allow the Addicks midfielder to get away. A free for all involving most of the players and the Addicks coaching staff then broke out before the pair were sent off.

Alan Pardew immediately protested Lloyd Sam's innocence and declared his intent to appeal the sending off, which the Addicks did. However, after lodging this appeal the FA on Thursday afternoon upheld the original decision and he will now have to serve an immediate three-match suspension.

Having fielded the same midfield for the past four matches Addicks boss Alan Pardew will now have to make an enforced change for the match with Barnsley at the Valley on Saturday, a match in which we look to make it eight Championship matches unbeaten.

How could this not have been overturned? I'm sorry but Ian Ashbee seems the aggressor in this, he took Lloyd Sam out late, kicked him and then held him down, what Sam is supposed to have done I do not know. This just shows how weak the FA really are. A Tiger fan said Alan Pardew was a 'disgrace', no this decision is a disgrace.

This is an outrage!!!!!! How dare they call him that!!!!! Seriously though, I'm really surprised at this - wonder what Pardew will say about it?

i can only think that Sam used some pretty bad language..either way the ref came from the institute for blind corrupt bald men...not sure if he is bald or not...if he isnt, i would like to shave his head, then hit it with a frozen trout....Sam is our player, therefore he is innocent..he should have knocked ashbee out, then it would have been worth the 3 match ban...and the melee...it was hardly that, it looked like most of the players were just trying to break it up..
