Town Face Yellow Card Fine
Wednesday, 15th Feb 2017 18:41
Town will be fined £5,000 by the FA for having six players booked during last night’s 1-1 draw at Brighton.
Tom Lawrence - who now misses the Leeds home game and the East Anglian derby at Carrow Road having reached 10 yellow cards for the season - skipper Luke Chambers, Myles Kenlock, Josh Emmanuel, David McGoldrick and Emyr Huws were all cautioned by referee Roger East, who was in a somewhat card happy mood when it came to Town players.
Speaking after the match manager Mick McCarthy refused to be drawn on the number of bookings: "I’ve nothing nice to say so I’m not going to say it at all because I’ll get into trouble.”
The FA’s Disciplinary Procedures 2016/17 states: “Any club that has six or more individual players cautioned or dismissed from the field of play in the same match will be offered a standard punishment according to the following table on the first occasion that this happens during the season: Football League Championship £5,000.
"For each successive occasion that this happens in the same season, the standard punishment offered will be a fine that is double and then treble etc the above amount."

Views of a Young(ish) Town Fan by tractorboy2000
After seeing the new season ticket prices, I felt like writing something would be a good form of therapy to get some things off my chest about Ipswich.
Two Defensive? by rickw
After our most recent bore-draw against Wolves I wondered if playing two defensive midfielders (DM) was just a personal gripe of mine and we actually got better results playing them or the stats backed up what I and I'm sure many other fans think - we shouldn't play two defensive-minded midfielders together.
