Spot the difference

January 5, 2011


Following Lee Bowyer’s three match ban for stamping on Bacary Sagna, much has been made of Alex McLeish’s claims that the FA has an inconsistent approach to disciplinary matters for different clubs. It was disappointing to see the comparisons being made to a ‘stamp’ a year earlier by Samir Nasri on Hull’s Richard Garcia, which not only left the Hll player pretending he had been hurt when Nasri’s boot touched his heel while the ref wasn’t looking, but also led to the incredibly rare spectacle of Arsenal players involved in a brawl with the opposition. It was only right that the FA didn’t charge Nasri with violent conduct, not least because Hull are too small to bother with.
