Think Jay Rodriguez has been had off a bit to be honest. After being charged by the FA there will be bo escape for him. Nobody gets an FA charge and reverses their decision.
I think with Firmino the FA would love to find a case to answer but are really struggling to put forward a plausible account.
They're terrified that by nt charging these lads the media will hammer them for not dealing with racism.
Remember with the FA investigation the burden of proof is nowhere near that of a real trial.
Its all on probability and secondary accounts.
That is no doubt the reason it has been dragged out, the fuckers would take great delight in disciplining Firmino and are sick as f**king pigs there is not a shred of evidence to support the official's interpretation of events.
The obvious outcome should be the removal of the official from that roll since his perception and subsequent decision-making is seriously flawed and could erroneously affect the game to the detriment of all concerned.
Guess what - due to the ingrained corruption within the FA, cobwebs are being encouraged to form with the passing of time in the hope that the public's opinion will mellow/become less sharp and the official will keep his job, the FA trundles on and nothing changes - once more.
