The FA cant just jump in and decide a punishment, unless there is a 'way in' in the refs match report. If they did it would be seen as over ruling the match officials and could lead to calls for other decisions to be over ruled, eg. goals that werent and goals that have been ruled out that were (roy caroll blunder).
That said, the 'tackle' was just common assault the fecking coward
I agree that was Assault he went straight for the man. No doubt he will get a small fine and short ban.
Football needs to be tougher on its players.
I would ban him for the rest of the season, at least. and on reduced pay.
Â£5.75 an hour cleaning the ground should remind him how to behave
Arguing with the ref is another issue that grips my shi**e
The FA rules state if a player receives a yellow card there is nothing more that can be done. Like in our job not being done for the same crime twice. But if you get a red card yopu can appeal against it. Exceptional circumstances not withstanding, these better had be exceptional!!!!
Give him Boy George treatment and make the fcuker give something back to the community with out pay!!!
Thatcher has form, as they say. When he was at Wimbledon, I had the dubious pleasure of visiting Hell Hurts Park and seeing him run past Nicky Summerbee, rip his head off, collect the ball, pass it and Wimbledon won by this, the odd goal. THEN they came back, found Summerbee unconscious (there were 15000 Mackems in the ground pointing this fact out to the ref from the moment he went down mind). Thatcher got absolutely nothing.
A few weeks ago SAFC were linked with Thatcher. It seems a few people had forgotten about this thug's history. I won't.
That challange was awful, see it in slow motion and you see the full extent of it, he should be put away for how ever long you get 4 GBH because he meant that, he never looked at the ball just the player!!!
