View Full Version : Wade Elliott Red Carded!

15-11-2014, 02:06 PM
Just been sent off in opening minutes against Swindon for Bristol City. :O

Raised an arm apparently

15-11-2014, 02:28 PM
Just seen that. BBC live text says "fighting". That can mean anything from shaking hands to punching someone's lights out.

Don't recall Wade ever being sent off before.

15-11-2014, 02:44 PM
The 'raised an arm' came from Bristol City. It could be an elbow, a punch or an accident when trying to jump.

Referee is the appalling Darren Drysdale so I suppose anything is possible.

The Carlisle v Accrington game sees Tom Anderson up against former Claret Shay McCartan. 1-0 for the home side at HT.

15-11-2014, 02:47 PM
Two good lads but seeing as one is still with us I hope Tom comes out on top.

15-11-2014, 05:51 PM
Cotterill has described the red card decision as an absolute disgrace and confirmed they will be appealing it.

Tom Anderson had a steady game for Carlisle today although, apart from a 20 minute spell, Stanley huffed and ****ed without really threatening much.
During that spell, midway through the second half, Carlisle dropped too deep but that was the only real pressure they were under.
Shay McCarten was substituted on 75 minutes after a mediocre performance.

As much as I love Wade Elliott he undoubtedly had a very nasty little streak in him. Amazed he didn't see red fairly regularly for us.

15-11-2014, 08:13 PM
I agree w_n_p.

15-11-2014, 09:54 PM
Would tend to agree with the previous 2 posters though I would not describe him as "nasty".
More petulant and stupid at times - but still a favourite.

15-11-2014, 10:16 PM
He was a bit like Paul Weller's early days - could get away with a bit more than other players because he looked so little and innocent.

15-11-2014, 10:54 PM
Loved a little petulant scrap did Wade, probably deserved more cards than he got at Burnley but being a genuine nice guy pronably helps.

15-11-2014, 11:55 PM
Fair point, nasty wasn't the right way to word it.

I met Wade in Manchester in 2011, he was ever so nice about me barely being able to string a sentence together.

He did nowt wrong - view external link (www.youtube.com/watch?v=jM4hdoccQFQ)

take the https out and replace with http:

Thanks - doesn't look like a sending off, unless something else happened off camera. Swindon player not hurt but lies down dead, only to make a miraculous recovery.

16-11-2014, 12:05 PM
Cotterball is wasting his time appealing , a headbutt will always be a red card

16-11-2014, 01:55 PM
Petulant is the word I'd use to describe Wade.

Tbh I can't see what he's done here to warrant a card.

16-11-2014, 02:15 PM
So head butting doesn't warrent a card ?

16-11-2014, 02:27 PM
I think Garfunkal is right for once- If you slow it right down you can just make out that hes done like a reverse headbutt

16-11-2014, 02:31 PM
"So head butting doesn't warrent a card ?"

If he's head butted him then yes it does, but I've slowed it down and don't think he does.

16-11-2014, 03:23 PM
To me, it just looked like he stopped suddenly because the other player was literally all over him.

Anyway, he may be petulant occasionally but he was a brilliant ambassador for Burnley Football Club when with us. The number of times I heard of him making nice gestures to fans etc was a big positive.

I met him on several occasions when he was still playing with us and he was probably the most polite, talkative and intelligent footballer I've spoken to :)

"I met him on several occasions when he was still playing with us and he was probably the most polite, talkative and intelligent footballer I've spoken to"

I'd agree with that - alongside Steven Caldwell.
