it looks like Cardiff City will appeal Darren Purse's red card yesterday at Burnley.
In the best of cirmcumstances and in the most co-operative times, the chances of success on this one would be dubious but given the weekend spat between Peter Ridsdale and odious Alun Evans with the former using City's official website to complain about the latter and threatening to leave the FAW, you do wonder if it's even worth the effort especially when the FAW have only once ever overturned a City red card, many far more unjust than Purse's yesterday?
My personal view is that is has to be done but it'll be wasting time and possibly only deepen the rift.
As for Purse, perhaps it is now time for club and player to go their separate ways once this season ends, yesterday may have been his final appearance in a City shirt - notwithstanding his contract and finding someone to take him. He is in decline, more and more Spencer Prior-esque, wiuld have to be stripped of Captaincy and, apart from a magic moment with an equaliser at Anfield, has had the most hapless season possible. He's been a good servant for Cardiff and came here when lesser players would not but I do feel his time is up. It happens.
