West Ham boss calls on FA to improve disciplinary procedures

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce has called for the Football Association to change the disciplinary process, following Andy Carroll having to serve a three-match ban after receiving a controversial red card in the 2-0 Premier League home win over Swansea on 1 February. Allardyce told Sky Sports News: "I'm upset about the injustice after, as well as the original decision. I think we've been dealt a total injustice in the game of football.

"We've done all we possibly could to avert that injustice but we have to accept it unfortunately. My only hope is that the referees' system becomes better because that is obviously flawed in this situation.

"I think that the disciplinary hearing can be looked at and become better after that injustice. Of course after we went to the FA and the tribunal scenario, I don't know the outcome of that because I wasn't involved.

"Hopefully if I am, maybe they will help to get a better system in place because things like that decision should not happen in the professional game as they happen for me."
