Carroll red card row goes to arbitration

A Football Association arbitration hearing will consider West Ham’s appeal against Andy Carroll’s red card against Swansea.

Thorne: Carroll appeal flounders

The hearing comes after the London club threatened to take legal action when the striker’s red card -- shown by Howard Webb in the 2-0 win over Swansea for violent conduct after an incident involving Chico Flores -- was not overturned on appeal.

The Daily Mirror has reported that the hearing will take place on Friday morning, with a three-person panel set to hear the case.

Earlier this week, Hammers co-owner David Gold said the club would be seeking "legal redress" after their appeal against the three-match suspension was dismissed. That could have meant the issue ending up in the court of arbitration for sport.

If the decision still stands after the hearing, Carroll will miss the Premier League matches against Aston Villa, Norwich and Southampton.

In a statement, the club said they would take the issue no further after Friday’s arbitration hearing.

The statement read: "The club is concerned that the regulatory commission did not apply the correct test under the rule, and denied the club procedural fairness.

"West Ham's complaint is made under the FA rules, and the club shall accept and abide by the decision of the FA arbitral tribunal.

The club has no intention of taking the issue to the courts, but simply seeks a fair determination of its rights under the FA's rules."

Earlier, Gold had said: "It's not ideal -- the last thing I want to do is going to some kind of legal issue because I think it is a footballing issue.

"If we were mid-table, we would probably get on with it -- but we are fighting to retain our Premiership status and we owe it to our fans. We owe it to ourselves.

"We are a club that understands there are rules, and we abide by them. But you have every commentator and 80 percent of the media saying it wasn't a sending-off. We are upset -- we feel we have been badly treated."

Defender Flores has said he believed there was "aggression" in Carroll's challenge and accused West Ham of playing "ugly football."

Meanwhile, Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has voiced fears that West Ham could “create a monster” if they succeed in getting the red card overturned.

"If it is overruled, then you create a monster of everybody wanting to do the same," Lambert said.

Former FA compliance officer Graham Bean said he felt the Hammers were correct to challenge the FA, but echoed the Villa manager's comments by saying they may "open a vipers' nest" if the card is overturned.
