NEWCASTLE UNITED v MANCHESTER CITY –

Unhappy Beye

Monday 20 October 2008

Panel Decision:

Is the tide turning on the Tyne after ten-men Newcastle United put in a spirited display against Manchester City to zoom up the Right Result league table. The Toon got off to a terrible start when a superb tackle by Habib Beye was very harshly adjudged to have been a penalty that was duly converted. Despite referee Rob Styles being in a poor position to make such a vital decision, with him being the last defender, the former Marseille defender was also sent-off. The penalty that wasn`t should have turned a hard earned draw into a valuable victory.

The Right Result is a 2-1 win to Newcastle United.

Footnote: Following his subsequent claim for wrongful dismissal, Habib Beye`s red card was withdrawn.
