Friedel's Appeal Lodged

Friedel's Appeal Lodged

Villa have officially appealed the red card and automatic one match ban Brad Friedel received during the Liverpool game.

A statement on the official site reads:

'Villa have lodged an appeal against goalkeeper Brad Friedel's sending off in the defeat at Liverpool.

'The club should learn tomorrow afternoon whether the red card and one-match ban will be overturned.'

Whilst it was a penalty, it was certainly no more than a yellow card offence, if even that.

There's no way in hell the appeal committee should not allow the appeal and overrule the decision.

Good - as Liverpool fan I think overturning his ban would be the proper thing to do, regardless of who you're playing next.

agree Naoise. Penalty yes, red card no.

What happened to the days when players had to actually change direction to go around people? Now, players just tap the ball off to the side and run into defenders/goalkeepers.... ah I'm getting old!

Most certainly should be over turned, a red card for that is a joke. I conceed we lost to the better team on the day, but I still think liverpool were lucky with that penalty as I have seen refs not give them thinking the attacker was going down to easy and looking for it.

Whats the big deal? It was a pathetic piece of goalkeeping, defo pen and deserved a red card just for the way he went down/stayed up. JOKE!

Because villa are not Manure, Liverpoo or Cheatsea there is no chance that the red card will be over ruled. If it is i will bare my ar$e on New Street Station.
