Bowyer Appeal

Bowyer Appeal

Former Liverpool skipper Graeme Souness, now Newcastle's boss, refused to defend midfielder Lee Bowyer after the former England international was sent off in the second half of the Liverpool game. But Newcastle have decided to appeal on Bowyer's behalf. It was a card Souness didn't want for Christmas.

Bowyer was sent off for a bad foul on Xabi Alonso. He was shown the red card after referee Mark Halsey had calmed down a melee of players. But it was the yellow card for Crouch, who had shoved the Newcastle man to the floor, that surprised many because he was looking at a red.

Souness: 'I am being told by others who have seen it that there should have been more than one red card in that incident. My only thought is that when you raise both your feet off the ground these days in a tackle, then you are facing trouble.

'I think, especially away from home, when you lift your feet and launch yourself at someone you are risking everything. That is the game today. Especially away from home.

'I don't think that Bowyer was the only one who should have had a red card. I am not referring to anyone, I did not see it clearly. But some of the guys sitting near me on the touchline who did see it felt that there should maybe have been others seeing the red card.'
