Bournemouth Appealing Red Card Because “all the Cool Teams are Doing it”

Bournemouth Athletic are set to appeal Simon Francis’s red card from Tuesday night’s encounter with Arsenal because appealing red cards is at the height of fashion, it has emerged.

Francis was given a straight red for a tackle on Aaron Ramsey as the Gunners fought back from 3-0 down to draw he match 3-3. They are now set to follow champions Leicester and West Ham in questioning the referee’s decision with the FA.

Bournemouth manager, Eddie Howe, said: “Yeh, it was clearly a straight red. It was dangerous and he’s gone nowhere near the ball. If anything he’s lucky not to be facing criminal charges.

“But all the cool teams are appealing against red cards at the moment, so I just told Simon to go out and physically assault someone to make sure that everyone thinks we’re on trend.”

The FA are said to be very impressed with how well Bournemouth have kept up with the bigger clubs’ trends.
