Senna Suspended

Marcos Senna received a fifth yellow card yesterday, leading to a scheduled suspension for next week's Valencia clash. Villarreal are trying to avoid the suspension, though: they are appealing his yellow card. In my mind they should win the appeal. Gago dove well before he was touched, and Senna's cleats did not come near him. There was minimal contact though, so an argument could be made to keep the card in place.

I don't mean to be in an incredibly negative attitude lately, but I am wondering if they should leave him out for the match. He has been out of sorts, not living up to the accolades he received for his summer performance with Spain. I will get out of the funk soon enough - I hope Villarreal will too.
