To Appeal Or Not?

To Appeal Or Not?

Left back Paul Robinson has been charged by the FA with misconduct following his red card in Tuesday nights 3-2 Carling Cup win v Fulham. He received the card in the final minute of extra time.

According to The FA the charge is for using 'abusive and or insulting words to a match official' Ref Andy D'Urso said he received the insults after giving the player a red card at Craven Cottage.

Robinson has denied the charge and requested a personal hearing which should take place on Thursday November 3rd at the FA's Soho Square offices.

Although earlier reports on The Baggies official site quoted Bryan Robson suggesting they would withdraw the appeal saying 'We feel a real sense of injustice over this matter because Paul was the player who was sinned against. It's absolutely ridiculous we have to lose him for three games and that we cannot appeal because of the wording of the law.'

Albion's secretary Evans said: 'We understand Paul's position over this particular incident but, having reviewed the evidence relating to the case, we feel any such appeal would not succeed.'

Robinson will miss the matches against Newcastle, West Ham and Everton.
