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.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
