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 three..it 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.
layorh12
shambolic decision making by the FA (aka the hate chelsea mob)...they will get their comeuppance soon enough.
JohnnyOz
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.
nelyvanile
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).

BULL SH*T

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
JohnnyOz
Ill be more gutted if the board tell hazard to accept the charges...Anything beyond a 3 match ban is not acceptable.
nelyvanile
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.
ElMagicoNino
*he made no contact with the boyman (18yrs old)
JohnnyOz
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 ........
zolaisalegend
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.
NJ Blues
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.
Blueheart9
"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!
munich Glory
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!!
Ohans
'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!!
layorh12
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
Desmondadonis
Can someone tell me whether Hazard can play for the u21's in the meantme? That'll wind the FA up if we start smashing other teams youngsters.
Orangebear
its time for roman to show his power where its needed....buy the fa...buy the refrees...buy the ball boys...and ban manure from football...;-)
shlok27
All I can do is laugh. When will the FA stand up and take its own decisions. When the daily mail says sneeze the FA says how hard, when sky say jump the FA says how high it's a complete joke. I like the idea of désailly back at the club, he'd take no prisoners.
Blue1989
Could still be a 3 match ban, but a hefty fine behind it. After all the FA coffers must be a bit depleted after their Christmas party, funded by the fines against our lot from last year.
BlueABS
Win games. That's the best response.
foreign_viewer
Disgusting.
CFCTalal
Charlie Morgan might feel like the coolest kid around now,but 20 years from now when he is 37 and still labeled a ball boy he'll understand the animosity of his actions.
nelyvanile
Further proof why the FA are a bunch of clowns classed as violent conduct my ass those muppets have a big grudge against Chelsea Football club Jt gets cleared by the court but charged by the muppets Hazard so called stamp results in another charge whats next a further ban get a life.
Elbowz
unbelievable and ludicrous decision. Hazard need to appeal this no question about it even if it leads to lengthy ban. it's now super clear to see that FA are hypocrite.
jollyheart Torres
Amazed at your attitude, what a bunch of wasters.
Oscararc
@nelyvanille. I know what your sayin but I actually think that he will feel like a proper muppet right now . His parents would of givin him a good ear full and i'm sure he's reading all the media reports and listening to all the managers and players have there say on how disgraceful he is . Being honest , I reckon he wants to crawl under a rock right now and he'll be watching his back like a paranoid looper when he eventually leaves his house . He wont feel comfortable walking around in public for a very long time .
zolaisalegend
If Chelsea was smart...and that is a big big if...They should put their arms around Hazard...tell him that they love him and for him to forget it...also that he should take his family and go sit on a nice warm beach somewhere and get some rest and relaxation. And that everyone will see him back at practice in a couple of weeks....and for him to forget about it....and to go have some fun with his family...That is what Chelsea should do...if they were SMART...
lamarochs
I found this on another article's comment section and is very interesting indeed . In a match between Oxford United and Slumdown Town 3 march 2012. Slumdown player Matt Ritchie shoved a 14 year old ballboy in the chest and knocked the ball out of his hands. He was only given a yellow card by Graham Salisbury. More intresting though was the answer FA gave to a letter Myles Francis wrote describing this incident: "Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention. The FA has investigated and liaised with Oxford United on this matter. The player was cautioned by the Referee for the incident and has subsequently apologised to the satisfaction of the ballboy and Oxford United. Kind regards Gary Stonehouse | Customer Relations Communications Division The FA Group "
zolaisalegend
This is ridiculous. It is the ball boy who should be banned. He even apologised to Hazard in the dressing room. Hazard too apologised (even though he had done no wrong in my eyes) and relevant parties said the matter is closed. Now comes the people in power to make a fool of themselves and English football. I don't feel like watching English football anymore.
Blue Day
everyone knows the FA is a bunch of asslickers who will jump at the chance to fine/ban the best players of the clubs they hate. Maybe that is why chelsea dropped the Mata charges during the Clattenburg trouble, since they subsequently had mikel banned and we could not afford to lose Mata. Everyone, barring that idiot Rio Ferdinand (who kicked a stewardess at stamford bridge and got nothing, who posted a racial comment on twitter but got a minor fine - all stuff with proof but somehow the ***** gets away with it) have been supportive of hazard, and the FA has gone and called it violent conduct. Even the daily mail, which began with some horrid articles and headlines against hazard, has got some common sense prevailing there.
Mia Maynard
I have been reading comments on this site but am glad to have been able to register and also partake in the comments field. FA are nothing but a bunch of hypocrites and we all should expect this from them especially after JT's matter..... Eden should just serve whatever punishment they shell out and put it behind and focus on football
cfctoruletheworld
Ironic how the Brits always scream about foreign players rolling about on the floor. Now when an honest foreign player does an honest thing (trying to get on with the match) and a little **** of a Brit rolls around pathetically like he's got a bullet wound, the FA STILL wants to crucify the foreigner!
Carvalho
Jt,cole,mikel and now hazard,those bunch of *****s at the f.a always go rage on matters concernin chelsea.week after week fergie,rio,rooney,rvp e.t.c do worse things and get away with it but once its chelsea its always blown out of proportion...now is time for the fans to get off rafa and channel the fury towards the moronic f.a (but please lets keep it civil)
Ken4CFC
Violent conduct would be it Eden kicked the ***** in the head. He kicked the ball FFS. This is so laughable, it's not funny.
