1. January

    The next Suspension Tightrope of the season is already up and running after Newcastle’s Jack Colback earned his ninth caution of the campaign in yesterday’s 1-0 loss at the Emirates. If the midfielder is booked at any point between now and Sunday of Gameweek 33 (April 9), he’ll earn an automatic two-match ban.

  2. December

    Chelsea’s Diego Costa was the latest guilty party in the penultimate Gameweek of the first Suspension Tightrope of this season. Having bagged a brace for the first time this term in yesterday’s 2-2 home draw with Watford, the Spain international earned his fifth caution of the campaign for a late foul on the Hornets’ centre-half […]

  3. December

    Just one player fell off the Suspension Tightrope over the weekend’s nine fixtures. Sunderland’s Jack Rodwell was the guilty party, earning a fifth booking of the season for a foul on Pedro early in the second half of the Black Cats’ defeat at Chelsea.

  4. December

    Our Tightrope walkers were on their best behaviour over the weekend, with no new suspensions to report on so far in Gameweek 16. Indeed, the last 19 Premier League matches have failed to see anyone topple off, after last week also passed without incident.

  5. December

    There were 30 yellow cards flashed across the weekend’s nine fixtures but not one resulted in a suspension. With five new faces clambering aboard over Saturday and Sunday, the Tightrope now has 21 players sitting just one booking shy of a single-match ban as the busy festive period kicks in.

  6. November

    A trio of new protagonists toppled off the Suspension Tightrope over the weekend’s ten fixtures. Palace wide man Wilfried Zaha, West Brom midfielder Claudio Yacob and Villa defender Ciaran Clark were the guilty parties, with all three set to miss Gameweek 15 as their clubs do not have midweek Capital One Cup fixtures to bail […]

  7. November

    Southampton’s Graziano Pelle is the most high profile of this week’s Suspension Tightrope protagonists after collecting a fifth yellow card of the campaign in yesterday’s home loss to Stoke.

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
