West Ham 'lose Andy Carroll red card appeal'

West Ham have failed with a challenge to the Football Association's decision to uphold Andy Carroll's three-match suspension, according to the Press Association.

An independent arbitral tribunal on Friday rejected West Ham's case, and Carroll's ban takes immediate effect.

West Ham are unhappy that the England striker's ban - a consequence of being sent off against Swansea last week after an altercation with defender Chico Flores - was not overturned by the FA, and took the case to tribunal in the pursuit of what manager Sam Allardyce claimed was "justice".

The only (other) thing I could bring was a Black and Decker (tool) to destroy the wall.

Jose Mourinho pointed to time-wasting and aimless long balls to illustrate his point, which he had made to Allardyce after the game.

He was laughing. He takes the point. After that he's a happy man and I'm a sad guy.

Speaking after the game, Jose Mourinho said: "A football match is about two teams playing and this match was only one team playing and another team not playing.

"I told Big Sam and I repeat my words: They need points and, because they need points, to come here and play the way they did, is it acceptable? Maybe, yes. I cannot be too critical, because if I was in his position I don't know if I would do the same. Maybe.

"At the same time I told also this is not Premier League, this is not the best league in the world, this is football from the 19th century."
