Yohan Cabaye Gets Three Match Suspension


Yohan Cabaye has been suspended for three matches.

Yohan Cabaye – three match suspension

Newcastle midfielder had been given a three match suspension for violent conduct in the FA Cup game at the Amex Stadium on Saturday – as was expected.

This is what the FA put up on their web-site after the hearing today:

At a Regulatory Commission hearing today, Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye was given a three-match suspension for violent conduct.

Cabaye was charged following an incident in Newcastle’s FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday 28 January.

The suspension will commence with immediate effect.

The referee didn’t see the incident during the game but looked at video of of Cabaye’s clash with Adam El-Abd and the FA issued the charge to Cabaye on Monday afternoon.

Newcastle decided to appeal the charge yesterday and the hearing was hastily arranged for this morning, but as expected he was found guilt and will miss games against Blackburn, Aston Villa and Tottenham – and that’s a blow to Newcastle.

We suppose the good news is that the FA didn’t think Newcastle’s appeal was frivolous,  otherwise he could have received  a four match ban.

    Just go to show you cannot contest anything to the FA; even if there is precedents 🙁

    But, I knew this would happen.

    The British FA should be brought before FIFA, and explain their inconsistent ruling and safeguarding of Rooney.

    van persie isn’t being reviewed! This is ridiculous though, can’t believe he’s been banned for this! If he were a Man utd player it would not be the case

    Joleon Lescott, Robin Van Persie and Peter Crouch have not been given bans and will not be reviewed.

    Crouch’s one is actually by far the worst! He tried to poke Olsson’s eye out!

    Quite right too.
    He’s petulant and at times a very nasty player.

    He’s gone in high a number of times with tackles that could cause severe injuries.
    This incident is quite minor compared to some of the stuff he’s been doing all season.

    He needs a break he looks very tired.

    It’s understandable that our players get frustrated when the game is going away from them, but you just have to look at Arsenal for the impact needless, niggly fouls and indiscipline can have on a season.

    Part of me thinks Pardew should take it on the chin and encourage the players keep their noses clean or at least box clever. Last thing we want is a persecution complex a la Wenger and Arsenal.

    They didn’t think our appeal was frivolous, however they gave us no time to prepare a defence and sandwiched a decision between transfer deadline day and a tough away game at Blackburn.

    I would describe their whole operation as frivolous, with a few stronger words thrown in for good measure.

    Big game tonight please Guthrie!

    its up to the referee to request the review not the fa. the refs come out and said if hed seen it he would of given a red card therefore the fas hands are tied. van persie et al received no punishment because the ref didnt request it. prolly because the ref claimed to see them and judged them in game. i read at the weekend that el abd had asked the ref to look again, so this bullshit about him writing a letter is stupid

    How come the ref “didn’t see the incident”?
    It was the centre of the action, not off the ball.

    OK, so he “didn’t see” perhaps all that could be seen/inferred/speculated from viewing repeated slo mo replays.
    But SURELY he cannot say he “didn’t see the incident”.
    Which surely prohibits retrospective action.

    Cabaye has been poor lately. Really need to up his game. Guthrie is just as capable as Cabaye and could be even better.

    Not sure what really happened, but if El Abd got a foot in his face during the tumble after he fouled Cabaye, there was no way he could know if it was accidental or deliberate.

    So, it may be reasonable to ask the ref to review it.

    There’ll be some unhappy people on here tonight. I reckon Perch will have earned the Tioté holding role in Pardew’s eyes and that Shola is a dead cert to start as I can’t see Best being over happy with the fact that Pardew was happy to let him go to Celtic only for him to refuse on personal terms. Not a great motivator that one.
    I can see them scoring from set pieces (again) and us struggling to score. HBA will be amarked man and will probably get clobbered early on.
    I’d give Raylor another go with Guthrie. The reserves that played against Manure, including Abeid, looked awful even if Abeid was one of the least worst. He has to put Jonas back out on the left as he’s been useless the last few games

    How is it the FA can not review a very very bad refereeing decision (like our last minute penalty claim) afetr a game. I know we cant getthe penalty, or change the outcome, but the referee was clearly shown to be inept and incompetent, hence any retrospective ‘decisions’ by him are dubious to say the least.

    @STB // Feb 1, 2012 at 1:53 PM

    I agree with you on everything except for the Jonas part. He has been fantastic in his new role. Something like a number 10 and roaming freely. The only problem is our strikeforce. Ameobi, lesser said about his movement the better. We can just plant a tree upfront and we won’t notice any difference.

    Leon Best plays very deep. So it’s hard for Jonas to do anything in that role. With Cisse and Ba could be different.

    Sorry for repost.

    @Toonincheck, this trial by TV is lopsided as we all know because they(FA) can take action in a case like this but when it comes to disallowed goals it stands, be it (Ref/linesman/woman seeing it or not) they should have a process in place to appeal decisions like this or scrap this practice for reviewing plays/tackle via TV playback.

    frigan FA want there bollocks shot off, so lampards challenge was ok the other week and crouch attempted gouge was ok then, double standards all together, now guthrie and gosling omg we are missing our two main centre halfs our two main centre forwards and our two main centre midfielders, hold on tight tonight, if pardew continues without giving the youngins a proper chance then we can only at absoloute best get one point tonight, hes got to play fergie and vucic in my opinion gosling is like guthrie wont go forward with the ball just runs up and down the pitch, i cant remember him touching the ball since he has been here apart from a poke in the net, talk about not looking forward to a game if pardew goes krul simpson santon willy perch jonas guthrie gosling guthrie best and shola we cannot possibly win this game, we are a top 7 team with all our players fit, this team i have picked would see us relegated we need vucic and fergie playing , if he goes looking for a point again we will get beat. am so pissed off with last sats game for starters, get positive like you said you were when you came and give the youngsters a chance cos gosling has shown nothing and guthrie is no better than alan smith sideways balls all the time, fekn FA.

    From nufc.com:

    Unsuccessful previous acquisitions told that they won’t receive new contracts include Swedish goalkeeper Ole Soderberg and his fellow countryman Samuel Adjei, Faroe Islander Joan Edmundsson and Hungarian defender Tamas Kadar – the latter of whom was on the bench at Brighton.

    Local lads left looking for new clubs meanwhile include strike trio Phil Airey, Ryan Donaldson and Dan Taylor, midfielder Greg McDermott and defenders Patrick Nzuzi, Jeff Henderson, Stevie Folan and James Tavernier.

    Rowan:
    team for tonight (move them around as applicable):
    lightweight, lopsided, uninspiring, lacklustre, half-arsed, lazy, accident-waiting-to-happen, over-rated, and sackless. Oh, with Captain Collocini and Tim Krul in goal.

    I predict a riot. (Kaiser chiefs)

    I predict a shambles (Shola Ameobi)

    @TimKrulFan

    Guthrie is not really adding anything on the RW.

    We have tried it before mate 🙁 didn’t work.

    Guthrie is very good in a #8 position in midfield, but he needs to have a #6 beside him to do the defensive dirty work 🙂

    Who is our best defensive midfielder, now that Cabaye is out? And Tiote is at the ACON.

    I remember thinking after it happened that he was lucky to get away with it,and for me,what he did was worse than what Ballotelli got done for.
