FA decision on Ajeti

Albian Ajeti has escaped any action from the Football Association after fears arose he could face a three match ban at their behest.

The striker was caught up in an incident with Everton’s Mason Holgate towards the end of Saturday’s game but VAR decreed no red card was involved in what appeared to be a brush of heads off the ball.

However, despite the reprieve there were fears inside the London Stadium among some insiders that the FA would reverse the decision.

They had until tomorrow night (Tues) but explained to CandH that nothing will be done following the VAR decision.

Ajeti had been more lively that in any previous appearance for the Hammers and appeared to show that he could perhaps be in the frame for future appearances having looked like a man on a mission to prove points to the new manager.

The Switzerland international will be hoping he showed enough to put himself in the frame for an appearance against Leicester City on Wednesday night.

  1. Correct decision – had this argument yesterday.
    He tilted his head back but there was no movement towards Holgate, who was trying to get him sent off.

  2. Was there ever a case about this Hugh or just more media *h$! stirring ???

  3. Couldn’t believe Holgate’s ridiculous reaction. He should be ashamed of himself. Absolute cheat. There was no ‘knock’ – if anything their heads were already touching when he leant back. Why is it that Holgate and others who play act aren’t villified and ridiculed for it?

    Good to see Ajeti with some fire in his belly though – I hope he gets a chance to prove himself – perhaps a start against WBA?

  4. If we see this guy against Leicester, it unfortunately means we aren’t winning.

  5. Main culprits are the idiots on MOTD – Shearer and Wright – smugness personified, cant stand them, and trying to influence the FA into making the wrong decision.
    These decisions have to be made on the pitch, the Ref had an excellent unhindered view of the incident, VAR of course intervened [wrongly of course] the Ref could have used pitch side monitor as was instructed to do last weekend, didn’t because he was 100% sure of his decision. All this nonsense has to stop, refs are being totally undermined its appalling.

  6. Imagine an FA Decision on this??? Overruling the Ref and VAR??? Even an idiot organisation like the FA can see this would be like putting a noose around their own necks!
    As for Match of the Day/Media…… they Seek controversy and always turn a mole hile into a mountain.

  7. Is it too much to hope that Moyes will do for Ajeti what he did for Arnautovic? Well we can only dream ….

  8. That’s the first time he’s used his head!
