Hleb Slapped With Violent Conduct Charge

Hleb Slapped With Violent Conduct Charge

Belarusian forward Aliaksandr Hleb has been charged with violent conduct by the Football Association this afternoon. The F.A. reviewed footage of Hleb appearing to slap Graeme Murty in Saturday`s 2-0 victory over Reading. An F.A. Statement said, The incident was not seen by referee Peter Walton. Having now watched video footage, Walton has informed the FA that, had he seen it, he would have shown Hleb a red card for violent conduct.'

Hleb has until 6pm tomorrow to respond to the charge, which will be heard on Thursday, 24th April. If found guilty, Hleb will face a three match ban which will curtail his season. With speculation mounting that Hleb will be leaving in the summer, it is not inconceivable that he may have played his last game for the Gunners.

Wayne Rooney was far more violent in the game v. Blackburn on Saturday than Hleb was.

nah the ref saw the rooney tackle but only booked him so no punishment can be given to him even though it was a two footed tackle around hip height from behind (i think he was trying to break every rule in th book with his tackle) on hleb bit silly of him but there was probably words had between the two prior to the slap

Technology can be used to officiate matches when it suits the suits.

Off topic..did anyone of you read this thread in Vital Spud. They compare the hammers to them like we compare Spud to us. A little hypocritical IMO. Makes me laugh when reading them:P http://www.spurs.vitalfootball.co.uk/article.asp?a=505855

Massive thanks also to Alan 'Elbows' Shearer for pointing this out to such an embarrassing level on MOTD

Could be the last game he played for us :( If we're to believe the rumours linking him to Inter, Flim Flam looks like he'll leave too. Bring back January please all was good back then.

That face slap is much worse than the double leg breaker by Taylor, I really can't work out why they're only giving Hleb the same ban.

TR7, did you also watch MotD2 on Sunday? In the much cut-down clip of the Saturday action, they still kept that tiny incident while some of the great saves by either keepers and Theo hitting the post were conveniently ommitted. But they still remembered to include RvP's awesome free kick, with the line: "This RvP strike just about sums up the Gunners' season: so brilliant but didn't quite cross the line." That's the mighty Beeb for you.
