    Southampton fan in peace.

    I can't believe his red hasn't been overturned I reckon it has only been denied on reputation you lot are seen as the bully boys of the prem (wrongly in my opinion) I really think people should open their minds a bit and treat you club without bias.

    Best of luck this season hope our ex players help! See you next season hopefully!

    Even though it was never a red card, I'm not surprised it wasn't rescinded. The FA will say there was intent there.

    Hope Southamton can make it.. <ok>
    As for the Red card... yes or no has been done to death. Can't say I blame the F.A. to be honest. What Pulis said certainly didn't help either.

    WE move on now, which Pulis should have done in the first place. I have heard that Robert Huth has apolgised to David Meyler too.

    Good for Huth. Now we get on with trying to get a few pts on the board.

    I'm not suprised either because I think it would set a precedent for over turning on intent! However, it has also set the precidient that any contact mis timed at pace should in theory be a RED. I commented on Warnock's challenge on Taylor the other day (which saw Taylor taken to hospital) and that was by far a worse tackle, a few inches either way and it would ahve been a leg breaker!

    If that challenge had been out of the box it would have been a card and if Huth's had been in the box it would have been nothing! That is fundementaly wrong and whenn you compare it to the Lampard challenge, well - I'm lost for words really!
