FA wait for Barry’s report

Last updated : 07 April 2003 By Martyn Elliott

As you’re sure to be already aware the Dane was guilty of a thigh-high challenge on Olivier Bernard during the move that led to Everton’s decisive penalty.

However the incompetent official, who had a clear view of the incident, decided that high tackles are fine even if the ball is actually on the floor.

Any suspension handed to Gravesen is likely to harm rather than benefit us as Everton still have Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United to play - so the whole exercise seems pointless.

However if it serves to publicly humiliate Barry then it will at least give us some satisfaction.
