Watford have decided not to contend the red card shown to John Eustace despite heavy support from Stoke City officials… as they believe they won`t be able to convince ref 'Useless Rob' Styles he made a mistake!
The Hornets captain - who was a massive favourite at the Britannia Stadium before his move south in January - was dismissed after just 25 minutes in Saturday`s clash of the Championship heavweights, after smug match official Useless Rob Styles reckoned he endangered Richard Cresswell`s groin!
Now despite a barrage of support coming out of the Potteries include Tony Pulis, Andy Griffin and even 'victim` Richard Cresswell, Watford have confirmed they won`t run the risk of an appeal and a lengthened ban for their midfield general.
The Hornets club site stated "For an appeal to be successful we must prove the decision has been a clear error on the referee`s part. Whilst we believe it to be wrong and both Tony Pulis and Andy Griffin believe it to have been wrong, it is nonetheless a judgement call by Rob Styles and we cannot prove it otherwise".
So there we have it. Richard Cresswell says it 'was never a sending off`, Stoke`s Andy Griffin says "It was a foul, possibly a yellow card but a red card? No way" and even calls for "justice to prevail"…
But Useless Rob will get away with yet another rubbish decision because he is an abysmal ref with a massive ego.
And on that front, the whole of the footballing world can't prove VITALWATFORD wrong either.
