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."

Evans will probably need to go and sit in a darkened room. Our players fees cost less than that!

Rule appendix on this states "Unless the referee in charge is a complete numpty. Then he needs to pay the fine." True!

Fine should be paid by those booked for dissent alone. Stupid and no excuse for it.

I suppose the F.A. have got to get some dosh from somewhere to keep the old duffers on the committee in the manner to which they have become accustomed.

What a joke,I have never seen a ref give out so many cards for great tackles. . Hopefully there was an assessor there last night because Ray east is not fit to ref. . P.s it was a great gutsy team performance and a well deserved point which could easily seen three.

What a poor performance by the referee to dish out cards willy nilly, surely the first infringement by a player, unless it is cynical, should be a verbal warning...Kenlock booked minutes after the start.
As for Tom, he has been a breath of fresh air, BUT now needs to add a bit of natural intelligence to his game, he has been our main goalscorer and our standout player, but if you have a weakness, the opposing team Manager will find it. Kick him out of the game without giving away a foul, wind him up and he will get booked.

Absolutely ridiculous. Obviously some refs give more cards than others.

It's the refs who should be fined for giving cards for minor tackles. It should become a 'no contact' sport for some of these refs!

On saying that Lawrence was an idiot to argue with the ref at Brighton when he knew he was on 9 yellows.

Roger East is now over compensating after he made a right mess of a clear penalty decision earlier this season in the Stoke v Bournemouth game.

If the FA can't see this and don't take action then we'll know they're equally incompetent.

Not that any more evidence is needed of course.

Having said that, more fool our players if they don't do their homework and know that they have a numpty in charge in a particular game and behave accordingly. I.e. No dissent.

Easy to blame the ref, players shouldn't give lip to him.. simple as that. I agree with punishing clubs for ill discipline, although £5k is a bit pointless, even for skint clubs like ours!!

No other refs would have dished out so many cards(9 in all Wallingford Boy)and it wasn't even that dirty a game.

Micks teams seem to have got a reputation for being hard and uncompromising;but they are not dirty.I have seen several games this season where Ipswich are sinned against rather than being the sinners.This will of course only add to their bad reputation,which I feel, especially now, is not justified.

A referee that cards Kenlock so early in the game for a foul which wasn't dangerous or cynical is a card happy 'homer'.Surprised he gets to referee in the Premier League,perhaps he thinks officiating at this level is beneath him,and that Championship players are 'cloggers'.
