Hazard Charged by FA!

Hazard Charged by FA!

It seems that the Football Association, after deliberating over footage of the Hazard incident for over a day, has decided to pursue their pound of flesh.

News broke that the FA had charged Eden Hazard with violent conduct this afternoon, with Eden having until 18:00 hours on Tuesday to respond.

Not the news we wanted to hear is it!

One hopes that the adjudicating panel will see sense upon reviewing the footage. Totally unnecessary from the FA.

This is the same FA that earlier this year ruled that RVP elbowing a Wigan player and which was clear as day did not warrant any sanction...this whole charade called the FA is so rotten it isnt even funny anymore. Well let us wait and see how many additional games ban they tag on to the basic is Chelsea after all and there is a special way we are treated, on the far left of the spectrum, a special way ManU are treated, on the far right of the spectrum (of course David Gill being on both the FA board and ManU admin board has nothing to do with it) and then everyone else in the BPL falls somewhere in the middle.

We already knew the FA was inept. This isn't a surprise.

English FA is full of morons....not like i dint know before...but this just further confirms it....m shaking ma head...Emenalo should do what he has to do...we move on.
25/01/2013 16:55:00
shambolic decision making by the FA (aka the hate chelsea mob)...they will get their comeuppance soon enough.
25/01/2013 16:56:00
So the same organisation who appealed Rooney stamping on someone charge Hazard for kicking the ball. The same Rooney clearly elbowed James Mccarthy and there was no sanction perhaps it wasn't a violent act? English Fa is a very BIG joke and a disgusting organisation.

Time and time again,the FA bully us into submission and we just lie down and die because its the FA...Totally unnecessary to Charge Eden,its like giving the ball boy a thumbs up for his actions. Disgraceful *****s at the helm of affairs in the FA,I'm honestly gutted.
25/01/2013 17:09:00
Not suprised at all. The FA however deems Hazards punishment "clearly unsufficient". Does that mean additional match ban or a fine. Time will only tell. Could we afford for Hazard to be banned for that much long( beyond 3 games). Well there is still time to add depth to our already depleated squad. Or at least recall one of our loanees( De Brynne).

It is time for cfc fans to stand up against this ridiculous FA...forget all the infighting against Rafa etc, it is times like this, more than any other, when we need to get our voice heard... There was absolutely no intent in Eden's gesture, he made no contact with the ball, and the ref had allowed them time and time in that game to waste time. Normally teams are a bit more discrete when they do it, but most referees react quickly to stop it...their keeper was wasting time in the 1st HALF - c'mon...If referee Foy had acted earlier they would have behaved themselves but bcos it was chelsea who'd previously charged them in the Mikel case, they sometimes stop doing their job against us...Disgraceful

They might as well charge that spoilt brat for doing the opposite of what he is paid for. This charge against Hazard is ridiculous. He should have kicked him harder.
25/01/2013 17:13:00
Ill be more gutted if the board tell hazard to accept the charges...Anything beyond a 3 match ban is not acceptable.
25/01/2013 17:13:00
*he made no contact with the boyman (18yrs old)
25/01/2013 17:15:00
If the whole footballing world is publicly backing Hazard ,even the PFA ,how the hell can the FA swim completely against the tide like this . I'm lost for word's . Where are the charges against Swansea city ? It's .....its .......its...I don't know what to say ........
25/01/2013 17:22:00
not sure if you guys saw this but before the game Charlie Morgan (the ballboy) said on his twitter "The king of all ball boys is back making his final appearance #needed #for #timewasting" this is ridiculous he even flat out said he was going to waste time. how is Swansea not getting punished too?! Hazard's only crime was he missed the kids head.

David Gill should not be on the FA board, it is a conflict of interests and an absolute disgrace. Look at the footage, Hazard kicked the ball. Chelsea should now make an official complaint about Swansea FC and their matchday responsibilities. We need to get someone of the stature of Marcel Desaiily to take over the PR of our club. This past year the clubs image around the world has plummeted to an all time low. Is has to stop.

"The king of all ball boys is back making his final appearance #needed #for#timewasting". The word '#needed' is clearly an indication that this little brat was instructed by Swansea to perpetrate that act. Its so painful that those who are suppose to look into this tweet have decided to turn their blind eyes because its chelsea. I 'm highly disappointed that the English Fa is being run by the Manures. Waht a joke!

The English FA is a dirty and filthy bunch. They sure enjoy the huge amount collected from Cfc players as fines for every little incident. Damned lots they are!! Feck!! Hazard can only be subjected to further blame and punishment by a very biased opinion. Even my ManUre supporting sibling didnt see much thing to crucify Hazard for. I didnt rule out the FA sticking out their ugly heads on Hazard though,but its kinda surprising given that the truth is naked for all to see. These is so unfair,the ball man held the ball too long,leaving Hazard with no option but to kick out the ball from underneath him. The age difference between them is not even much,how come Hazard is now being treated like a bully when clearly the ball man pushed him too far. Yet he didnt hurt him. Am Gutted!!
25/01/2013 17:34:00
'll expect Hazard to appeal and let hell fall....the FA are a joke really...hypocrites...reminds me so much of the pharisees and saducees in the scriptures....smh!!
25/01/2013 17:46:00
He haven't been fined, he is asked to respond to the charge, he should make his case and let us see where it'll lead
