FA Reject Appeals

Unfortunately for Hayden Mullins (and Luis Garcia) the FA rejected their appeals against their red card suspensions meaning both will miss the FA Cup final in a fortnight.

There is some good commentary about the ridiculousness of the decision here.

At face value it might seem like Garcia is a bigger loss to Liverpool than Mullins is to us but I don't agree. Mullins may not get too many headlines and public plaudits but he is a huge part of our midfield and it is his gritty dependability that allows NRC the licence to get forward. He would definitely be in my top 3 for hammer of the year.

I feel sorry for him having to sit out such a huge occasion because of a handbags at 5 paces nothing incident.
