Anyone who has seen the footage on Calendar tonight must be horrified by Morgan's challenge on Iain Hume - that kind of thuggery has no place in football. Andy D'Urso - ex premier league ref - what chance have we got of getting a decent official at unibond level?

Not condoning it but Pete Heaney used to do worse than that every game.

Haven't seen it, but many Barnsley supporters were very angry on
Radio Sheffield's ' Football Heaven' last night. Morgan one of the
few hardmen left in the game and one that has had to take plenty of
hard knocks through the years but never complained. His being from
the Barnsley area and being an ex Tyke probably inflaming the situation.

Not sure what it has to do with Frickley however. Seen some bad challanges
on Blues' players over the years, Dawson's on Hancock at Goole Town a bad
'un and the one by the Stocksbridge Park Steels' player at Westfield Lane not
nice. Football a contact sport still and if there is contact there is always a
possibilty of injury.

I have also seen many, what appear to be bad/nasty/violent tackles or incidents. Very often they look bad but turn out to be moderate.
The Morgan elbow, delivered with enough force to fracture, what is a very strong bone, the skull, looked bad,is bad, and should be condemded by even BLADE(s) supporters. If I acted on the terrece to another supporter with an identical action. My punishment would probable be a prison sentance.

Like I said earlier, I have not seen the incident and will not condem anyone
from what other people are saying.

If Chris Morgan meant to injure his opponent, he should expect to
be dealt with by the FA or by a court of law. There no place for such
thuggery on the field of play or on the terraces.

I appreciate it's got nothing to do with Frickley, but quite a hot football topic right now. It's really up to the football authorities to do something now and that would calm the situation down. Simon Davey coming out and mentioning legal action has unfortunately meant Morgan and Blackwell are completely silent. An apology and a concilliatory press conference would have been advisable, but that won't happen now. It will be interesting to see how things pan out...
