Blinkhorn bemused by final suspension

Monday, 25 October 2010 16:18
Sligo Rovers striker Matthew Blinkhorn has criticised his suspension from the FAI Ford Cup final ahead of the Bit o' Red clash with Shamrock Rovers in the 14 November showpiece.

The former Blackpool striker was booked against Dundalk on 9 October, his fourth yellow card of the season.

He learned of his one-game ban for the final last Thursday, remaining free to play in the Bit o' Red's final two league games of the season, the first of which was a 2-1 win against UCD last Friday.

Sligo's Richie Ryan and Hoops midfielder Robert Bayly will also miss the final because of bans.

Blinkhorn told the Irish Independent: 'It should be that if you get four bookings, you miss the next game. If you get eight bookings, you miss the next two games.

'That's the way it works in other leagues. You don't get a booking on 9 October and wait until 14 November to dispense the punishment.

'It doesn't make sense; basically we're being punished because we have got one game extra.

'If we hadn't gotten to the Cup final, we would have been suspended for the first game of next season. I got banned for a game after the season's finished. That makes sense, doesn't it?'

Saw this in yesterday's Tribune.  Would he be a good addition or no better than we have/

Noble set to join Irish band as Alex keeps Gunners on Song
premier league Speculation that West Ham ace will feature in Friday's Trapattoni squad

The right note: Arsenal's Alex Song (left) is challenged by Luis Boa Morte of West Ham United during their Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium Mark Noble yesterday proved what an asset he could be to Giovanni Trapattoni's Ireland as West Ham were narrowly beaten by Arsenal at the Emirates, courtesy of a headed goal from Alex Song's two minutes from time.




Strong rumours have been circulating in recent days that the former England under-21 captain, born and bred in East London but 'Irish' by virtue of one of his grandparents, is close to declaring for Trapattoni's side and may well be included in the squad for the friendly against Norway on 17 November at the Aviva Stadium.




Irish assistant manager Marco Tardelli was at Upton Park on Wednesday when the player came off the bench on 72 minutes with West Ham 1-0 down to Stoke City in the League Cup. Noble contributed richly to his side's comeback that evening and was a force again yesterday.




With a neat touch here, a clever pass there, he was involved in all of West Ham's best play while the player's 30-yard run and rasping drive on 35 minutes forced Lukasz Fabianski into a very important save.




His delivery from set-pieces, which he deliberately placed as close as possible to Arsenal's keeper, were also extremely effective on the day.




Trapattoni, who must surely be keeping a close eye on the player, will also have been impressed by Noble's energy and discipline. Playing in a three-man midfield alongside Scott Parker and Luis Boa Morte, Noble kept as much of an eye on his defensive duties as his attacking ones.




All in all, he would represent a significant addition to the Irish ranks. The Noble camp have been quiet on the rumours this week but, interestingly, have not gone out of their way to dismiss them out of hand. Trapattoni names his squad for the Norway game on Friday.

Aye, he was in stitches when Trapp asked him to play for Ireland.

thought that was complete rubbish. coleman not getting on was a disgrace. we know what mcgeady,duff,hunt and lawerence can do. the match was lifeless. it needed someone to give it a lift. same old predictable rubbish from trappatoni.

Didn't watch the match but I can't believe Coleman didn't get on. We need to blood new players and now we will be relying on the likes of Kilbane for the next euro qualifier. Seems that whatever most people think is logical Trap decides to take the opposite opinion just for the hell of it.

He'd maybe give coleman 5 mins if he was qualified to play for another country, you know, the way he did with mccarthy.

It really does get my goat up when managers choose to ignore the obvious.

The first Irish player with a genuine spark to break into the Premiership in a decade, and Trap doesn't try him out.

It beggars belief.

I'd welcome Brian Kerr back with open arms. He understood just how limited the playing pool was and played tactics to suit, but at least he didn't create his own limits.

And McCarthy is still eligible to play for Scotland because he hasn't played in a competitive match for Ireland!!Wouldn't be surprised if he does when he returns from injury with the way Trapp treats young players.
