Andy Carroll: Will serve a three-match ban

West Ham striker Andy Carroll will serve a three-match ban after his appeal for the red card shown in Saturday's win over Swansea was dismissed by the Football Association.

The 25-year-old England forward was sent off by referee Howard Webb following a tussle with Swansea's Chico Flores, having set up both of Kevin Nolan's goals as the Hammers picked up just their fifth Barclays Premier League win of the season.

Carroll sent a Tweet on Tuesday afternoon suggesting he was aware of the decision as he simply wrote: "DISGRACEFUL".

He will now miss the Hammers' next three fixtures, starting with Saturday's clash with Aston Villa, after only featuring in four league games so far this season following a lengthy injury lay-off.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
