Is Guthrie culpable?

Is Guthrie culpable?

Hull City revealed this afternoon that striker Craig Fagan has suffered a fracture in his leg. Given Fagan was subject to a downright ridiculous tackle by our midfielder Danny Guthrie, there is a strong suspicion that it was his actions that caused it. If so, and given the almost pre-meditated action, he could be joining Barton on the FA`s sh*tlist very quickly.

Telly watchers will no doubt try and state the player got to his feet after the challenge. However given Stuart Pearce managed to play an entire half of football with his leg broken, there is previous for players not needing a stretcher despite this injury. Either way, here`s wishing the lad a speedy recovery.

Disgraceful tackle to say the least. Should be banned for as long as Fagan is out

Can someone explain to me what Wise has done so wrong and Keegan done so right? Wise was asked to do a job and from what i can see is doing it.Keegan is a bad manager who would only take your club one way.DOWN.

12 games minimum - you're forgetting he tried 3 seconds before by raking his studs down Fagan's shin. That didn't work so he came in a took him out. How can you call the tackle "ridiculous"? Ridiculous is Spurs paying £16m for Darren Bent. What Guthrie wasn't ridiculous, it was GBH and he should be charged by the police.
