Dirty Danny`s Desperate Deed

Former Bolton player Danny Guthrie has escaped further censure from the FA, after doing to Craig Fagan what every Newcastle United fan would like to do to Mike Ashley. Guthrie missed with his first wild swing, but got to his man a few seconds later, leaving the Hull City striker with a broken leg which could keep him out for three months. You have to admire the persistence, even if the intent was a bit dodgy.

Guthrie was always a yellow card waiting to happen when he played for Bolton, endangering both himself and opponents with reckless challenges, but that was down to youthful enthusiasm. Some said that he lacked an end product in his time at the Reebok. That accusation couldn`t be made now, but his newly found resolve would be better demonstrated with a move that involves the ball.

The former Liverpool youth player says that he will apologise to Fagan in person. Flies on the wall are already forming an orderly queue.

The FA are right not to impose further punishment. It was a horrible challenge, but anyone claiming that he broke Fagan's leg deliberately is wide of the mark. It's nothing like as bad as the incident with Ben Thatcher and Mendes.
Snout
He might not have broken his leg deliberately but it was a deliberate kick at the player, not even in the heat of the moment could you suggest he went for the ball
Red Wimp
He went in twice. He missed once and then went back for seconds, breaking Fagan's leg, with no attempt to play the ball. Why is it not worse than the Thatcher/Mendes incident? Because Fagan wasn't left unconscious? It was an act of violence. It is every bit as bad as the Thatcher/Mendes case imho. There was intent.
ph_1980
ph_1980 spot on, had this kick taken place out side of any public house and been caught on camera the police would be taking him to court for GBH (or a Joey Barton) In no other work place would this type of assault be acceptable and its time the FA allowed the player/police to take civil action.
