Sommeil, take your medicine

Manchester City defender David Sommeil made a brutal and intentional challenge against Tottenham fullback Lee Young-pyo in their match during the week. I can’t believe that he has the nerve to contest the challenge.

Sommeil is facing a three-match ban which he has chosen to contest in a disciplinary hearing next Tuesday.

Stuart Pearce, who I rather like, unbelievably, seems to think that Sommeil’s challenge was defensive:

"It looked to me like the Tottenham guy was trying to smash the ball at David," –Pearce

Standing by your players is one thing, but come on.

Its not fair saying it was bad a tackle because it wasnt. He just stuck his leg out and by accident lees knee fell into his foot it really could happen to anyone mistiming is what it was

That is one of the most stupid comments I have heard from a manager in a long time and that is saying something!! Lee was running at an entirely different angle and was going nowhere near him. If they had any sense then they would extend the ban by another game for wasting their time!

I'm not sure who made the comment about it not being a bad tackle but my god you're so wrong! Have you ever kicked a ball?! There is no way on this earth that it was just mistimed! The ball wasn't ever where his foot went because Lee doesn't kick with that foot doughnut!!

Sommeil should be ashamed of himself for what he did on Wednesday. That sort of tackle has the potential to cause serious injury, or even end a player's career in the most extreme circumstances, and now we hear that Sommeil has the audacity to appeal his 3 match ban? In my opinion, he should count himself extremely lucky that he hasn't been hit with a huge fine, and a far lengthier suspension.

To David Sommeil, all I can say is this:
"Stand up, and take your punishment like a man!"

I look at the professional football player point of view. Legs are always the important parts of the players who rely them to earn the money. A football player kicks other plaer's legs may mean that he does not respect the football profession. Sommeil gets no personality since he has no regret in what he had done. He should earn his money in 'kung fu' fighting, not in soccer games!
