Just as we suspected, Sascha Riether goes down into the record books as being the first player to be found guilty, of violent conduct, by the so-called ‘star chamber` of former referees.

His assault on Adnan Januzaj was always going to be punished, even if Fulham Football Club believed that the referee, Lee Probert, had dealt with matters by admonishing Riether for the challenge.

But yesterday it was announced that Riether will be banned for a total of three games, for his act of frustrated retribution.

I suppose it could have been worse, the ban could have been longer of Riether, considering he`s the first to fall foul of the new system, could have been sent to the Tower of London!
