Town and Canaries Could Face FA Action for Bust-Up
Monday, 11th Feb 2019 17:18

The FA could take action against the Blues and Norwich following the bust-up just before half-time in yesterday's derby which saw Town manager Paul Lambert and Canaries head of performance Chris Domogalla red-carded.

They will assess referee Peter Bankes’s report from the game and could charge the clubs with a 'mass confrontation' breach of FA Rule E20, that they failed to ensure their players and/or staff conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

The incident followed a Jon Nolan challenge on Max Aarons, with a number of Norwich players running over to remonstrate, leading to the melee involving most of the players on the pitch.

Off the field there was subsequently a clash between Lambert and Canaries’ assistant head coach Edmund Riemer - rather than Domogalla who was erroneously sent to the stands in a case of mistaken identity - who the Blues boss said had strayed into the Town technical area.

Does anyone know how many games Lambert will miss after his ref? Not sure how it works when a manger gets sent off

positivity added 17:22 - Feb 11

And you can all but guarantee we will receive the larger fine.

At least it saved the snowflakes of last year getting uptight after Mickma told em what he thought of them.

Positivity - love it. If we don't both get a points deduction can we appeal and insist that we both do!

Will we ever see another so called local derby i say that because we are over 40 miles apart maybe next year we will be playing colchester which would be a true local derby which would make narwich local derby kings Lynn

If the FA are going to charge us with bringing the game into disrepute (or whatever the charge may be) then perhaps Mr.Stiepperman should also have a charge slapped on him. His theatrics were surely an embarrasment to his club and fans but all attention has been diverted by other incidents.

Perhaps they will ban us from playing each other again for at least two seasons.

ThaiBlue added 20:04 - Feb 11
Like Lambert shows fight and cares for the team,wish some of our players would show the same.stand by Lambert he will get us sorted eventually big job here,a very big job.

Is it just me or was Lambert's latest P.R stunt not only slightly embarrassing but rather a tarnish on the club's image and reputation?

Northstandveteran added 21:24 - Feb 11
All the pre match talk of not letting the Norwich fans get to you, then saying how half of Glasgow hates you, then you act like a complete Dick!


Just looking for a fight in my opinion.

It’s just you N.S.V, (Lol) great to see a bit of passion from PL, ironic that all the scrutiny was on the fans behaviour when it was the staff kicking off!

Northstandveteran added 21:32 - Feb 11
I thought it probably was 😁

Scuzzer added 22:50 - Feb 11
The mere fact that the ref sent the wrong Nodge bloke off to the stands indicates he didn't see what was going on...not sure why Lambert was sent off for...what did he do? Poked a mouthy scummer in the chest when he came over to our technical area... oh dear how awful.

Big Points deduction for both of us.

FrankfurtBlue added 06:35 - Feb 12
Phil, I think their member of staff was not Riemer, but Ed Wooten, GK Coach. At least, that is who was standing neaxt to Domagalla, when Lambert confornted him and then Chambers grabbed him and marched him away.

MadDog added 07:55 - Feb 12
Why not-we’ve had everything else to deal with this season-get it all out of the way now & we can have a few seasons without everything going against us!! Did Mick smash a mirror when he left last season???!!

Cheshire_Blue added 10:36 - Feb 12
Mick didn't need to smash a mirror. He knew what the likely outcome would be following his departure.
