Gabor's FA Cup Dream

Gabor's FA Cup Dream

Gabor Gyepes had feared he would miss this weekends re run of Wolves last 2005 fixture after picking up 5 yellow cards, the last during Mondays 2-0 loss to Coventry.

But FA rules state suspension for accumulating bookings start 7 days after the last offence, which leaves Gabor free for Saturday, but means he will miss Wolves next Championship match against Luton next Friday. The enforced lay off is a double bitter pill for the Hungarian after making a near miraculous recovery from a knee ligament injury picked up against Reading on Boxing day. He also doesnt think his last caution was deserved.Speaking in The Express and Star he said

'I'm disappointed to be suspended,I don't understand my booking on Monday because I thought it was a clear tackle. Even if it was a foul I think it was just a normal foul and not deserving of a booking.'

'Getting a booking is no problem if it's deserved, but I couldn't believe that one.'

He also confirmed that while many in this country feel the FA Cup tournament has seen its importance and significance diminished in recent years, the allure and FA Cup fame and glory is still as strong abroad as it ever was.

'It would have been very disappointing to have missed the Plymouth game because every player who comes to play in England dreams of the FA Cup.That's no different for the likes of Hungarian players such as myself and Denes Rosa.' he added

No Wolves interview would be complete without mention of the wonderful football they at times play.but Gabor put his own slant on the situation.

'It would be better for us to play badly and win the game because all that everyone sees in cup competitions is the result. The most important thing is getting through to the next round. It's not enough just to play nice football like we've been doing.'
