Should Derry be facing a two match ban?

15th February 2006 :: by Chris Hudson

On the face of it a footballer being banned is nothing extraordinary these days. Influential Leeds United midfielder Shaun Derry has been banned automatically for two games for allegedly receiving ten yellow cards. His last yellow card was received at Pride Park against Derby County.

The two game ban will cause him to miss the away game at the Theatre of Crisps (Leicester City) and the important game against Mike Newell's Luton Town because the FA Disciplinary Code states: "Match bans following an accumulation of yellow cards (5, 10, 15, etc.) will come into effect seven days after the last card".

Now, Derry missed the League Cup tie against Blackburn in late October as suspension for for his first five yellow cards, and The FA website confirms Shaun is indeed currently a "Player Pending Suspension", stating that Derry is "Suspended from all first team football until the Club have completed 2 first team matches for 5/10/15 cautions".

Now here's the rub, statistical buffs will be aware that Shaun has only received eight bookings this season (confirmed on four different websites, including the official Leeds United website and that of the BBC). So why is he being banned? Where are the missing two bookings? So if you're an FA offcial, referee or Leeds United employee please email us here at leedsutd365.co.uk if you can help explain why Shaun is being banned. We tried to contact the FA regarding this but their e-mail form "isn't working today". Otherwise are we to assume Leeds Utd players get banned after 8 rather than 10 yellow cards. Paranoid? Who? Moi? :-) Read what others have to say on this story!
