    I've **** the bed and potentially taken Aguero out too early. Still think he'll get the ban but there's doubt.

    Not sure why you would take him out now tbh. Not like he's in danger of price drop, I think.

    He did went up by 0.1 since the season started, so he's safe from price drop for 0.2 for me.

    Gary Linekar tweeted about him getting a three game ban and then my mate text me he'd been charged so I assumed it was safe and at the time I was bored and had a fiddle around

    That would be incredible if he didn't get banned. Would deserve everyone right tbh.

    He will be, surely? There's no case for Aguero!

    Gray now has til Monday to appear. He has such a nice game so wouldn't mind him being available.*

    Still don't understand how you could possibly ban Gray for tweets made 4 years ago :unimpressed:

    Because they're disgusting

    What if someone committed murder and their crime was only discovered 4 years later, should the person be acquitted because it was 4 years ago?

    What sort of message does it send out about the FAs stance on racism or homophobia? They had to punish him.

    Yeah there's a big difference between using homophobic language and killing someone.

    theres a big difference between me ****ing your girlfriend and me kissing her..*

    Doesnt mean you wont be pissed at either.

    Ofcourse your reaction would be proportionate.. Maybe a punch for a kiss, maybe worse after I **** her..

    Same with the FA, a suspension/fine for some bad remarks... *a life-time ban and life in prison for murdering someone..*

    This.

    Let's not be homophobia apologists here. What he said was disgusting. Actions speak louder than words too - curious if he has done anything for the lgbt community rather than send a statement that has clearly been drafted for him.

    He deserves some punishment for this anyway. Homophobia has a bad enough name in football as it is. No tolerance.

    If he wasn't playing professional football at the time, I don't think it should be punished. Looks like he was at Luton who were in the conference at the time. I think the comments should therefore be a police matter. But equally, I wouldn't have a problem with the FA punishing it to set an example, but it sets a precedent that could potentially get out of hand. What if a player in his 30s wrote something on MySpace when he was playing Sunday league football?

    Aguero news any minute!

    He's banned for 2 PL games, Aguero. Not sure whether to bench him or just get someone in for 2 matches.

    Guess I should since I played my Wildcard, one of the reasons for it.

    Sell and wildcard back? Loss in value is quite important this early on. I wouldn't bench tbh as that's a lot of potential points you'd be playing a bench player ahead of a big striker.

    Hazard or Ibra for captain?
    Near enough everyone in my league has Ibra as captain so might play it safe but feel Chelsea have more chance of goals against Swansea

    I would love to see Gray punished for his tweets. It's about time the FA took homophobia as seriously as racism and this is a good first step. It does seem strange punishing him for tweets made four year ago but if you work in a public facing role you should be prepared for any twatish past to catch up with you at some point just as David Cameron learned with his pig friend.

    I say that as a guy who has Gray in their team too. But as a gay man I can't wait to get rid and there's no better excuse than him getting a ban. If he gets banned I'll have both him and Aguero not playing with one transfer already made and three defenders and a keeper showing yellow so I may be forced to wildcard on Monday. Though I doubt the validty of any yellows during an international break.

    The yellow flags annoy me - I think they should scrap them. So many sales of Stones because of it, yet he was named yesterday in the XI to play for England tomorrow ffs.
