Roberto Martinez is to stand his grown over his FA charge. The Wigan manager has prepared DVD evidence to show what he said was correct, and that it doesn't question the refeere individually. Martinez now wants actionto be taken to stop the bigger clubs do get it 'their own way'.

This could be a tricky mover for Martinez. If he fails, he could receive a touchline ban and a hefty fine. Yet if he succeeds, then he could be about to get the respect of many fans up and down the country. For many years it is always a for gone conclusion that when you go to places like Old Trafford or the Emirates, decisions go to the home team.

It is likely that the FA will flick Martinez away, and he will land himself with a fine. Yet he is speaking his mind, and we are lead to believe it is a free country. In modern day football, there has to be a system where officials are public reviewed and apologize/accept they make wrong decisions.
