Andy Carroll’s 3 Match Ban Will Stand Following FA and West Ham Independent Arbitration Tribunal: Daily Soccer Report

West Ham United have been dealt a blow by The FA’s decision to let the three match ban against Andy Carroll stand, despite the club threatening legal action and taking the matter to high court.

Sam Allardyce and West Ham owners David Sullivan and David Gold were hopeful that The FA would overturn its decision to give Carroll a three match ban. With the striker missing most of the season due to injury, the three match ban could be the difference between the Hammers staying up or being relegated this season.

Carroll received the ban after hitting Swansea defender Chico Flores in last Saturday’s relegation clash between the two sides.

    No mention of Chico Flores’ recovery from a quite brutal attack, is he still alive?

      Just like Robin van Persie, who Sir Alex Ferguson said was almost killed by Ashley William’s clearance that hit RVP’s head.

      Chico is making a good recovery but his hair is on life support.

      He deserves to drive the pink ‘Ferrari’ for the rest of the season for his theatrics.

    I think a lot of people will have a heart attack if soccer becomes “America’s National Past Time”.

      Huffington Post, to be fair, rank only slightly above Buzzfeed as far as journalistic quality goes. knee-jerk twaddle following the Backham Miami crap this week.

      Yep, agree. West Ham has become a joke the past half decade, and even more so this season… a joke so bad that they beat Spurs twice on their own patch this season.

      but seriously. Between the David’s, Bradley and Fat Sam… thank goodness we have Tottenham to laugh at…
