Looks like Charlie's going to have some time off in the next few weeks...

As well as thinking that the penalty awarded against Laurent Koscielny was a bit harsh during the 1-0 defeat to Stoke on Saturday, Arsenal fans were aggrieved that no action was taken against Charlie Adam for a nasty-looking stamp on Olivier Giroud during the clash at the Britannia Stadium.

Not spotted by the officials at the time, the incident has since been reviewed by a three-man panel of former elite referees, with all three of the unanimous decision that it was an act of violent conduct and deserving of a red card.

Adam has until 6pm tomorrow to respond to the charge but it is likely he will face a three-match ban as a result and on the admittedly shaky evidence in the video above, he should probably accept his fate.
