Tamas Accepts FA Charge

Gabriel Tamas has today accepted the FA charge of violent conduct following the elbow incident with James Vaughan at the weekend.

Upon accepting the charge, Tamas is now automatically banned for the next three games, meaning he will miss the Swansea and Fulham league games and our Carling Cup match against Everton.

WBA's legal director/secretary, Richard Garlick said.

'We have spoken at length with Gabriel and he is adamant that he did not intentionally elbow James in the face. However, he admits the way he turned in the penalty area was clumsy and he has apologised to James through a mutual friend for the injury he has suffered. We, as a club, also send our best wishes to James.'

Garlick adds that whilst the club fully believe Tamas' version of events, it was decided that the club and player would not appeal the charge because it would be difficult to overturn, especially as Mark Halsey has gone on record to say that if he'd have seen the incident it would've resulted in a straight red for Tamas.

Personally I would say that irrespective of intent, accepting the ban is also the right thing to do in this instance. It was a straight red even if you rightly accept it was clumsy.
