'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Guthrie misses added ban / Fagan

In a surprising move it seems the FA have admitted defeat in charging Danny Guthrie with an additional ban, with their own regulations hamstringing any attempts to extend it. An FA spokesman said:

'Every sending off carries an automatic sanction under the current regulations. The FA doesn't have the power to extend automatic suspensions. The only circumstances in which we could take any further action would be to issue an additional charge against a player. This occurs only in exceptional cases, such as Ben Thatcher's challenge on Pedro Mendes in 2006.'

Meanwhile Craig Fagan has demanded a face-to-face apology from the midfielder following his leg break, saying:

'He's come out and said he wants to speak to me, but he sent me a text message on Monday night saying he`s disappointed with what's happened. 'In my eyes, that text message doesn't do the justice of what a phone call does. I'm not saying that he hasn't tried to apologise, but maybe it could be different.

I was starting to feel comfortable in the Premier League for the first time. I never really had that at Derby. I've been enjoying it all season. Everything was feeling good and falling into place. I felt I was starting to show what I can do. As so often happens in football though, when you're doing well, something like this can come along and spoil things.

I took one look at the fixture list and I was devastated. We've got games against Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham that I'll miss. Those are the games you're desperate to play in. I'm devastated that I'll be missing the games, but I've got to concentrate on getting back as quickly as possible.'

sorry chaps but Guthrie should be looking at a six game ban minimum!

Looks like Fagan is planning legal action. Seems only fair.
