Wes Brown Red Card Rescinded

The controversial red card issued to Wes Brown in Sunderland’s 2-0 loss to Stoke City has been rescinded by an FA Panel.

Black Cats Manager Gus Poyet said the following regarding the decision:

“Of course it was hugely frustrating to have Wes sent off but we accept that officials are only human and, like everyone, they can make mistakes. Having the red card rescinded goes some way to rectifying the error and we are delighted to have Wes available for Saturday.”

“I would like to express my thanks to the panel for giving the matter their consideration. Naturally we are delighted with their decision, which is fair and just.”

  1. For once the FA did the right thing. Now if they can just get the officials to get it right on the field it would be even better. They should also look at plays where there should have been a red card and the official either gave a yellow or nothing at all and review them and give retroactive reds. Maybe that will make the officials more likely to think about what they do on the field.
