Darren Purse - More Double Standards!

Darren Purse - More Double Standards!
It hasn't even been classed as a bookable offence! It has been reported the Andy Cole needed 10 stitches in a leg wound.

It begs the question why the hell hasn't the English FA had a say in this? Cardiff play in the English league don't they? Who are on this committee of the FAW?

So Purse, the captain of Cardiff can play in their last league game against Barnsley & is available for the Cup Final. What a surprise!

Give a player a little slap in the face & you get a 3 match ban in England!!! More double standards!

so lets get this straight cardiff are a welsh side yet they play in the enlgish league, and have done for donkies years but the FAW reside over them not the FA, yet the FA helped play their part in getting cardiff awarded a uefa cup place if they beat us, yet a blatant red card - having said that ive not seen it - is overturned by the FAW even tho cardiff play in the english league? god forbid one of our players gets sent off in the next couple of games as it'll cause mayhem!

Who is in charge of football in England-the FA or the FAW? How can the FAW overturn a red card given by an English ref in a game played in England in the ENGLISH Premier league? Perhaps we can look at all offences by any Cardiff player during the season and get the FA to issue belated red cards for them.

What football league are they a part of? Seriously I think it's stupid them being in our league full stop.

My comments written two hours ago when I heard the news..........That takes the **** biscuit - Why don't they just give the **** cup to Cardiff now .. It'll save us gonna to Wembley to see two of our players sent off and a them awarded a penalty in the last minute for a challenge outside of the box... I'm livid at this.. **** livid !......... My view hasn't changed !

Careful; we're all in danger of being conspiracy theorists who think that, whatever, we do, it's their name on the cup not ours. Bo**ocks. The best team on the day will win and we are the best team. End of. Let them have their little "victories" but it won't stop us on the day.

I am not worried about them with or without Darren Purse but I get angry when a club gets the rules bent to get their own way. That goes for any club not just Cardiff. We couldn't get ANY relaxation of the rules so Defoe could play in the Cup yet the FA and FAW bend the rules twice for Cardiff. The pitch at Wembey will now probably be left as a cow paddock with long grass and mud so Cardiff feel at home and our ball players and pasdsing game are useless. Does anyone know what nationality the head groundsman is at Wembley?- WELSH?

Imagine Distin or Muntari doing that in our final games, we would have no chance of an appeal! How is on the FAW committee? The Cardiff chairman! I am irrate by the whole thing & the Welsh Anthem makes me mad. The quicker the final comes & we stuff them the better. Roll on Dragon Slaying Day.

All the more incentive to kick their Welsh trog arses back over the other side of the Severn Bridge! I have always had an inexplicable loathing of the Welsh - now at least that loathing is becoming more logical . Up and at 'em Pompey the dragon slayer!

Big Ben returns!

There's no doubting how important Davies is to us, we most definitely missed the former Sheffield United man against Orient but Cook's confirmed he'll start against Bristol Rovers.

Winning over the fans

Cook feels he still has to 'win over a proportion' of the fans at Pompey?

Tubbs surprised...in a way he has a point

5-goals in a combined total of 8-matches isn't a bad return is it so having made his move to Eastleigh this week I get Tubbs' point at his surprise Cook wasn't selecting him.

Pompey Predictions League - update no.28

The Pompey predictions league is very much part of this site now! This continued with a defeat to Orient last Saturday.
