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."

Play Our Guys Or Take on Loan? by Mullet
I first noticed Bersant Celina a couple of seasons ago, he is one of a handful of names which get mentioned regularly by various fan and sportswriter accounts on Twitter and in the Manchester Evening News. He is the sort of talent that locals up here hold in high regard but haven’t seen too much of.
A Play-Off Tale from the Northlands by Von_Lager
It’s been an interesting 10 days for me reading the articles on 29th May 2017 vs 2000 and Huddersfield or Blackburn?. Interesting for me as I was at Wembley for both the 2000 and 2017 finals and both times supported the winning teams.
You Little... Garner? by Mullet
The slow crystallisation of next year’s squad began with first the departures of several key figures spanning the reign of McCarthy, to make way for the securing of fresh faces. Typically, it was the familiar look of Jordan Spence which came first and unsurprisingly as Town look to bounce back from a dismal season.
Desperate Data – the Extreme Numbers That Defined Ipswich Town’s Dismal Season by realprojection
Think Ipswich Town’s 2016/17 Championship record redefined tedium? Think again. Despite a low mid-table finish, set against a background of increasing supporter discontent at insipid management and directionless ownership – Town actually topped (or tailed) the league for many key attributes. Not the characteristics of a mundane team.
