Arsenal ready to appeal Eduardo ban

Arsenal are ready to appeal against the two-match ban for Eduardo handed down by UEFA.

The Times says Arsenal are waiting to see the fine print of Uefa's judgment before finalising an appeal, but they have begun exploring grounds to do so. Senior figures at the club believe that they are being victimised, because it is unusual for video evidence to be used retrospectively to punish a player for diving.

Arsenal believe that they are the victims of flawed decision-making processes at Uefa, which they consider to be random and arbitrary. A charge of "deceiving the referee" was introduced in 2006, but in the intervening three years no such charge has been brought against a player in club competition and it is inconceivable that no offences have been committed over that period.
