Hazard Back Soon

One decent piece of news that broke yesterday related to Eden Hazard.

Around tea-time (UK time), the news broke that the independent panel, brought in by the Football Association, had decided that Eden`s three-match ban, was sufficient for kicking that wally of a ball boy down at Swansea.

No doubt, those sitting within the very comfy confines of the FA HQ were gnashing their teeth and spitting venom at the fact Chelsea Football Club had, in their eyes, gotten away with it!

Eh? They decided that 3 was enough and then gnashed their teeth, doesn't make sense Merlin, they are the ones that decide whether he 'gets away with it' or not.

egg on your face FA...they must be feeling very silly now having released the initial statement saying that the red card and 3 game ban given to hazard was "clearly insufficient"....jokers! Common sense prevails for once...

At least this will be one player Rafa can't use the tired old 'tired' excuse with, he'll have to think of something else sharpish, perhaps the psychological trauma of the whole event!

Yes nely! That write up sure helped the to see justice prevail. They were really caught on the neck with that. 'Standard punishment insufficient' indeed. Really bunch of t.w.i.t.s!!

I wrote to the FA with an official complaint about Hazards treatment and they actually wrote back as follows. Dear xxxx xxx, Thank you for contacting the Football Association. Following a hearing, an independent regulatory commission was of the opinion the existing three match sanction for this offence was sufficient. The FA will be reminding all clubs of their responsibilities in ensuring ball boys and other personnel around the pitch act in an appropriate manner at all times. Thank you again for taking the time to write. Please rest assured that your comments have been noted. Best wishes, Tracey Bates

finally chelsea got 1 favorable outcome from the panel even though FA tried to move against us. i m happy when some one bully FA becuase they are nothing but **** who dosent know anything other than to penalise players for no reasons and giving advantages to their favorite teams and players even after giving required evidence against them.
