|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Right, let's get one thing straight first, Mings did not stamp on Ibrahimovic's head, he jumped over him and at worst trod on the side of his head, causing minimal pain and discomfort, although I still firmly believe the whole thing was completely unintentional and I don't think Mings is that sort or person or player. 5 match ban.
Ibrahimovic deliberately swings his elbow with force into the face of Mings. Now that could have fractured an eye socket, cheekbone, knocked out teeth and there is absolutely no doubting that he meant it. 3 match ban.
Football is f**ked if it carries on this way.
It just feels like a political decision to placate Man U. Only Mings knows if it was deliberate, no one else can tell and it seems the people that made the decision didn't take into consideration whether it was accidental or not in banning him. Barmy.
