Is Emmanuel Riviere just spitting in the wind?
Papiss Cisse is all set to receive a 7 game ban for spitting at Jonny Evans.
This is due to the rules being changed this season as players receive a 6 game ban for spitting and as Cisse has already been banned for violent conduct (v Everton), he will have an extra game lumped on. Brilliant.
So it is safe to say if our season wasn’t over already, especially after giving away one of worst goals I have ever seen in the last minute last night, it definitely is now.
Riviere couldn’t score an open goal if he tried and we can’t rely on Perez alone to get us goals.
I’m not condoning spitting at all but Cisse only spat at Evans as he was adamant Evans spat at him first.
Banning him for 7 games is harsh considering it was a fight fire with fire reaction…but that won’t stop The FA banning him.
It wouldn’t surprise me if Evans is the one that gets away with it. Seeing as he wears a Man Utd shirt.
