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."

Has Mick Found a Formula? by Pickersblue22
On November 22nd, Exeter City were bottom of League Two, bereft of confidence, ideas, and without a home win since April, all the signs were pointing to a season of struggle. A 1-0 win at Leyton Orient that night was the start of an marvellous 12-match unbeaten run, containing 10 wins. That run took them from below the dreaded dotted line to the fringes of the automatic promotion places, and was only ended by defeat in the Devon derby at Plymouth on Saturday.

With a pretty horrible run of five matches coming up, I know I’m not the only fan to have serious concerns about the possibility of relegation.
Another Post-Christmas Carol (Nightmare on Portman Street) by dusth
Christmas had passed and the sales, when all good folks looked for a fair bargain, were no longer in full swing. In fact they were over. Poor Mick McCratchitt was still at his desk at old Scrooge's Ticket and Footballing Agency, looking on his iPad at the bargains that might have been when young Tel his assistant brought him a bowl of warm water and a teabag. "This'll cheer you up boss!" "Thanks, old lad," said Mick and plunged his hands into the bowl. It instantly froze.
