Sepp Blatter & FIFA appear to be on a mission to have Martin Taylor’s ban from wrecking Eduardo Da Silva’s leg increased.

It’s been almost a month since the Crozillian frontman had his leg broken, and whilst Birmingham’s attempt to sweep the incident under the carpet has almost succeeded, FIFA have not been fooled.

It has been widely accepted (after an extensive campaign) that Martin Taylor is a nice guy and in no way attempted to injure Eddie, but his tackle was wreckless, and tackles like that need to be ousted from the sport.

After Birmingham claimed Taylor had ‘served his time’ that FIFA had no rights to ask the FA to increase the ban for his bone breaking tackle, the world footballing organisation have once again ask the FA to review the incident and increase the ban.

Whilst it would be nice to get past this whole nasty episode, it’s good to see that FIFA have put their attempts to pull some crazy stunts to one side and are actually pursuing a cause worthy of fighting.
