Leroy: Why straight red is good news for Noble

RedleroylogoThe discussion over Mark Noble’s red card has been held and the outcome is unanimous – it has to be rescinded.

And the good news is that having received that, rather than two yellows, he has every chance of seeing referee Kevin Friend’s horrendous decision turned round.

There’s no appal for two yellows but a straight red means the club has every right to do so and for the sake of football they have to win. It was a terrible decision.

It wasn’t a foul…he didn’t touch Danny Ings but the former Burnley man’s reaction was awful and I wonder if retrospective action will taken against him for such awful play acting. It should be!

We had no real chance of seeing Adrian’s red card overturned but for the good of the game, Mark Noble, West Ham and our fans this has to be overturned.

It was wrong and Danny Ings was the main offender.

  1. Crazy referring this year and the lines man are not much better. These guys really need to get there act together.

  2. Was a no brainer, had no doubt it would be overturned. The Ref balanced the books because of the barracking He was getting from the Kop over another poor decision when Coutinho was sent off.

  3. Good that his studs were visibly down and the ref had blown for a foul on Noble, both players didn’t deserve a red

  4. I think he knew he had made a mistake with their red card an like a lot of Refs do he was trying to make it level,
    The whistle had gone for the first foul on Noble,so the play had stopped
    Second Noble never jumped in 2 footed and showed no studs,
    If this is not rescinded the laws need looking at,
