Irons make Kouyate red card decision

west-ham-kouyate-cheikhou_3441511West Ham will appeal the red card handed out to Chiek Kouyate against Palace this afternoon.

And they expect exactly the same result as they had when the midfield dynamo received his marching orders unfairly against Blackburn Rovers.

Chairman David Gold told ClaretandHugh a few minutes ago: “We have decided to appeal the card – the decision is plainly wrong and like everybody else I’m feeling very hard done by.

“We had Darren Ramdolph bundled over the line for Manchester United’s equaliser in the Cup match, a penalty awarded against us wrongly at Chelsea and now this.

“It’s happening almost every week and again today we are on the end of a very wrong decision – we have to appeal and fully expect to get the right outcome.

Everybody within West Ham and Palace admitted having seen it on replay that it was a yellow and the time has now come to introduce the technology to deal with these issue.

I believe we are heading for a situation where our game could be brought into disrepute if we don’t”

  1. On a different note , its time to play carol and sakho up top!
    A 3-5-2 needs a go ! Emineke has not fitted in to well, arsenal up next IMO carol must start ,
    He’s fresh and eager !!

  2. I think that there is a conspiracy against us. The pl and fa don’t want too many outsiders in the top for as it is bad for them if Leicester Tottenham and west ham qualify for the champions league.

  3. I think most will sympathise with that view ! The way to beat it is to keep on doing as Leicester and ourselves are doing ,
    The premier league has changed with a bump this year and I believe the change is here to stay , the big boy days are numbered , we just have to ride the old ways reteric until it is forced to change .
    We as a club are getting bad decisions , they are not going to change overnight , we have to force the issue with scoring more goals to achieve change . Its going to take a while but it will change ! Every regime fails in the end , history tells us that ,

  4. I sympathise with that 100%. Bilic & Ranieri have done football one of the greatese favours in the history of the game. They are single handly stripping the ‘big clubs’ of their prestige by playing football. I believe that what has happened to Payet & Kouyate may be a focal point in that change. The inconsistencies are obvious & it begs for modern technology to correct. The game is changing, that’s for sure, this year has made that point & if the FA is progressive & sees that, then it will change for the better….we hope.
