Wimbledon striker John Fashanu was in hot waters and was staring at FA rap after the televised clash with Blackburn defender Kevin Moran. Fashanu was caught by BBC TV cameras clearly making contact with Moran who left with a suspected fractured nose and furiously accused Fashanu of deliberately causing the injury.
Arsenal’s Ian Wright was banned for three matches a week earlier for a similar incident where he tried to injure Tottenham’s, David Howells. Wimbledon’s Vinnie Jones was already punished heavily that season for admitting in a tv documentary “Soccer’s Hard Men” that he used cheating and violence in football matches to win.
