Everton Bad Boys, 1999-2000


With a 50,000 suspended fine imposed from Season 1998-99, and a further 75,000 hanging over them this season, the woeful disciplinary record for Everton's First Team players was actually improving... until much despised referee Andy D'Urso struck at Leeds.

 HEADLINES

 

RED CARDS 

A double yellow for Hutch and a straight red for Richard Dunne at Leeds United mean suspensions (1 and 5 matches respectively) defferred to next season.

Richard Dunne's red card at Leeds United earned a surprising 5-match ban:

  • The offence of serious foul play earns an automatic three-match ban
  • Dunne had already been sent off at Derby, earning another match ban
  • Dunne was also withdrawn in the pre-season friendly at Rotherham

It appears that the Rotherham incident was counted as a previous red card, or carried an additional suspended sentence of a further one-match ban.  Dunne was also sent off when playing for the Republic of Ireland, but this should not have been counted in his club-level punishment.

Notes:

  1. Table does not include suspensions carried over from last season.
  2. Table includes cards received in League Cup and FA Cup matches
  3. Table may list some but not all cards (in italics) received in the FA Reserves League
    (Note: These cards do count towards suspensions that apply to senior matches)
  4. Totals relate to all senior Everton matches and do not include cards [1] picked up by players at their former or loan clubs, in friendlies {1}or in the reserves (in italics).
  5. Table does not include cards picked up in International matches. 
  6. Impending suspensions are listed as (+1), etc.
 

 THE TOFFEEWEB DISCIPLINARY POINTS CALCULATION

 
The method used here to calculate points in the table above works like this:
  • A Single Yellow Card is worth 2 points
  • A Double Yellow Card (automatic Red) is worth 5 points (the first yellow is ignored)
  • A straight Red Card is worth 5 points
  • A match missed through suspension is worth 6 points
The system is designed to reflect the relative impact to the club of each player's indiscretions.  For example, although the various red-card offences carry different suspensions, the initial impact of all red cards is the same: the player misses the rest of the match.  Then the suspension follows, and the player misses one or more complete matches.
 

 THE NEW FA CARD SYSTEM AN EXPLANATION

 
The Football Association's current disciplinary system for the 1999-2000 season works like this:

Yellow Cards

  • 5 yellow cards between the opening day of the season and the last day of February in the same season:- one match ban.
  • 5 yellow cards during the entire season:- warned as to future conduct
  • 10  between the opening day of the season and the second Sunday in April:- one match ban
  • 10 yellow cards during the entire season:- severely censured and warned as to future conduct. 
  • 10 yellow cards will result in the player being called to the Disciplinary Commission where the Members of the Commission will have the power to deal with the player in such a manner as they deem fit.

Red Cards

  • A player red-carded for receiving a second yellow card in the same match will be automatically suspended for one match
  • A player red-carded for denying a goal or an obvious goal-scoring opportunity by physical means or by handling the ball will be automatically suspended for one match
  • A player red-carded for using offensive, insulting or abusive language will be automatically suspended for two matches
  • A player red-carded for violent conduct, serious foul play or spitting at an opponent will automatically be suspended for three matches
  • Players red-carded for a second time in the same season, in addition to the automatic suspension applicable to the offence, will be suspended for one extra match
  • A player red-carded for a third time will be suspended for an extra two matches, and so on.

Periods of suspension will commence on the 14th day following the date of the last offence, and shall cover all domestic League, League Cup, FA Challenge Cup matches and Friendly matches, until such time that he player's recognised senior team has completed the number of matches appropriate to the punishment.

Any period of suspension or part thereof which remains outstanding at the end of a season must be served at the commencement of the next following season.
