Snodgrass to appeal his suspension

Robert Snodgrass is waiting for the FA to provide written reasons for his £30,000 fine and one-match ban which many in the game consider very harsh.

Claret and Hugh understand that Snodgrass is extremely likely to appeal the ban and fine which was handed down from the FA and he continues to strenuously deny making abusive comments but was found guilty by an independent commission.

The 31-year-old was not selected for drugs testing on that day at Rush Green in February and at no time he did not refuse to be tested.

Claret and Hugh have been told by a training ground source that there was a verbal exchange with the tester which was designed to be humorous by the Scotsman and a bit of banter but it appears they took it the wrong way and filed a complaint.

The one match ban will remain suspended while Snodgrass has the option to appeal and will remain suspended when he starts his appeal.

  1. It is harsh IMO especially when you think about what players do & get away with Bournemouth boot to Kouyatea face last season, Racist remarks, all the dive non sense last season were only 2 go it Lanzini & Niasse who were contacted.
    The FA is so inconsistent
    And we could really use him this weekend in mid 3 bc will need 3 in mid IMO & Snod has been great for us & his set piece delivery is a threat to most teams

  2. He is available this weekend.

  3. I agree that the sentence was harsh – but Snoddy also needs to look at himself – if inspectors came around to my place of work I certainly wouldnt try to joke with them

    I think that whether or not the ban is lifted he will have learnt a lesson
