'I`m totally p***ed off that we didn`t get anything from it, and I`m even more p***ed off that he got an extra game.' quoth the Wilson to the Swindon Evening Advertiser in reference to the Football Association's decision to turn down their appeal to rescind Jonathan Douglas' red card and to extend it to four matches.
Not many people, myself included, believed that Swindon would be successful in this endeavour. I've seen it and I think it's harsh but whether it's right or wrong we've come to learn that it is very difficult to win these cases unless either the referee made an absolutely glaring error (which in fairness it isn't) or that the press have created a media storm - For the latter, that won't happen for an 'inferior' League One club like Swindon Town.
Danny Wilson believed that Swindon had a better case because of the referee report but bemoans that said document wasn't even taken into consideration when the decision was made - Wilson continued by saying that Swindon "put forward a fair and proper appeal, and from our point of view we`ve been dealt with with an iron rod, basically telling us not to appeal again because this is what we`ll get.... I don`t see clubs at the top level being punished like this. The top level sides aren`t dealt with the way we are.'
The Swindon manager has also made an attempt to finish 'Amankwaahgate' feud between Kevin Amankwaah and Neil Harris which hasn't ended. Wilson has urged for it to end immediately by question how and why 'Amankwaahgate' 'came to the press in the first place... As far as we`re concerned nobody could win - not Millwall, not us, and neither of the players.'
Wilson ended by suggesting that the only winner in this ugly affair was the media who could take advantage of the story.
Hopefully Wilson has kept his side focused on beating his old club Hartlepool United on Saturday. We shall soon find out.
