Carlton Cole is innocent, OK?

At least the FA has done something right and quickly too, rescinding the red cards of both Carlton Cole and Everton's Darron Gibson. A big relief and also an embarrassment for the hapless ref Anthony Taylor. Had CC been suspended for the Reading game we'd have been down to Kevin Nolan as an emergency striker. I thought that Cole looked much more like the striker he used to be in the days of Zola against Everton, causing the Blues problems whenever he received the ball. Could it be that his spell out of the side has enabled him to finally get fully fit and return with a renewed appetite? And also full credit to CC for never complaining when replaced by Carroll. Let's hope he gets another goal against Reading's nervous back line on Saturday.
