It's always a case of knowing where to look; for those little gems of news that can make all the difference.
And there it is, on the official FA website this afternoon.
Not just the fact that Dion Dublin was dismissed for violent conduct in last night's 2-0 defeat at The Valley, but beneath that lies the more significant line. 'Claim for wrongful dismissal received.'
Simple, matter-of-fact stuff, but proof that the legal wheels are turning; that someone here in Norfolk has lodged an appeal against the Big Man's 90th minute exit last night in a bid to to quash the three-match ban that wil now follow.
Scroll down another line and it also gives you when Dion's hearing is going to be held – tomorrow. Time enough for the 38-year-old to make the trip to Molineux should their lordships see sense.
There it is – 'A Regulatory Commission will hear the claim on 20 September.?
What can happen at these type of events is easy to see if you carry on scrolling down through the FA's 'Disciplinary Latest' section – be seen to be taking te mick and they can slap another game on.
That's the line that follows Craig Fagan's appeal on Tuesday, September 4, after his petulent little stamp in the Rams' 6-0 humping by Liverpool.
He, like Dion, 'denied breach of FA Rule E3 – violent conduct'
The result? Four games, not three.
'Result: Charge proved – 3 Match suspension + 1 match suspension as the denial of the charge was considered a frivolous claim'
Nah, what we want is Gary Richards over at Southend who went for serious foul play against Oldham at the weekend.
'Result: Claim for wrongful dismissal upheld – 3 match suspension withdrawn.'
Result, in every sense – and just what everyone will be looking for tomorrow.
