    If you don’t mind, I’d just like to querie the bookings for Paul Caddis and Michael Morrison.

    According to the stats on BBC.co.uk, Caddis has been booked 3 times, v Blackburn, Wolves and Blackpool (all away.) Also, I can’t see a booking for Morrison anywhere. The only Morrison booked in a Blues game, was Cardiff’s Sean Morrison.

    Maybe I just miscounted. My old eyes aren’t what they were. ;)

      I have Caddis booked twice – Wolves and Blackpool away.

      Michael Morrison was booked for Charlton in an Capital One Cup game away to Derby in August.

        I do believe you’re right old chap. On the beeb site, they have a yellow card against Caddis in the Blackburn game, but reading through the minute-by-minute report, there’s no booking. As for Morrison, good call, never thought of that. ;)
