Aguero charged by FA over Reid elbow

aguero-2Sergio Aguero has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association after he was found guilty of violent conduct following a clash with Winston Reid  over the weekend.

The Argentina international elbowed Reid in the face after backing into the Hammers defender, and the FA confirmed on Tuesday that City’s striker had been charged.

A statement on the FA website read: “Sergio Aguero has been charged for an alleged act of violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.The Manchester City forward was involved in an incident with West Ham United’s Winston Reid in the 76th minute of the game on Sunday [28 August 2016]. He has until 6pm on Wednesday 31 August to reply.

Off the ball incidents which are not seen at the time by the match officials are referred to a panel of three former elite match officials. Each panel member will review the video footage independently of one another to determine whether they consider it a sending-off offence. For retrospective action to be taken, and an FA charge to follow, the decision of the panel must be unanimous.”

  1. Hmmm…ref is looking right at them but fails to see it…Oh yeah? How does that work?
    Hope Aguero gets a serious ban…because I’m a vindictive s*d

  2. If they want to make this fair they should play part of the next game against us with 10 men, all this retrospective action is fine but why should other teams benefit from the affected team in this case our misfortune and refereeing mistake, notice that Aguerro now mysteriously has a calf injury, this is an old Guardiola trick to deflect attention away from a suspension… I am sure Aguerro will have recovered by the time he is free to play again.

    • Brilliant point. It is so obvious once some one points it out! We suffer the problem, and another team benefits…. How can that be right? Maybe we they should have a point deducted and we get one?
      Maybe change the points system to 6 points for a win and 2 for a draw. So then, say, if the ref has made a mistake like this, the offender give a point to the victim…bah; it’s all waffle isn’t it? They can’t even allow TV decision replays…useless…

  3. Agree. They should start the suspension when he’s fit.

  4. Meaningless, he is injured anyway and we needed the clear red card to be given. The game would have been totally different as they would have been down to 9 by then. Of course, that required the ref to have given just 2 of the 3 yellow cards Sterling should have been given.

    The refs are supposed to give yellows for diving are they not?

    The ref is supposed to be one of our best but missed a blatant red in front of him and lost his bottle, another weak ref.

  5. well fat lot of good that will do us now we was on top at that point I would like to think had he gone then we would have at least got a point same thing at Chelsea the **** stays on and then get the ****en winner dose this continue from last year or what
