It’s been a pretty bad day for Middlesbrough away from the pitch with winger Adama Traore seeing his ban not get overturned after an appeal from the club.
The winger has been in decent form this season and really shone against Bolton last weekend as he helped Boro to victory with two assists for Britt Assombalonga.
Many, then, thought he’d do similar against Aston Villa but he was instead sent off against his former side within minutes of the first whistle.
And, despite Boro appealing the decision, the red card remains and so he will now be suspended from the club’s next three games in domestic competition.
Certainly, then, this has got the Boro faithful on Twitter talking and so, with that in mind, here is the best of what has been said to the news:
Adama Traore will serve a three-match suspension after #Boro‘s appeal against his red card was rejected

Either both should have been overturned or both should have stood, ridiculous decision by the corrupt FA yet again

What a shock! I’m surprised they didn’t extend it because we asked to be treated fairly!

One misjudged and mistimed one totally cynical and halts an attack … the laws are wrong
