Lambert Fined for Lincoln Comments
Thursday, 12th Nov 2020 11:17
Town boss Paul Lambert has been fined £1,750 having admitted an FA charge relating to his post-match media comments aimed towards referee Kevin Johnson at Lincoln City on Saturday 24th October.
Lambert’s comments were judged to be constitute improper conduct in that they were personally offensive and brought the game into disrepute, a breach of FA rule E3.
Lambert attended a ‘virtual’ personal hearing where he apologised for his comments regarding referee Johnson’s award of a controversial penalty to the Imps which won them the game.
“I’ve sent my apologises to the referee for any offence my comments may have caused,” Lambert told the club site.
“They were said in the heat of the moment after a game where I felt we lost because of the ‘wrong’ decision to award a penalty to Lincoln.
“My comments were aimed at his judgment calls during the game and not his integrity as a referee.”
Last week Lambert was fined for the red card he received for his protests at the final whistle, having previously served a one-match touchline ban, while Town and Lincoln were both fined for the mass confrontation following Jon Nolan’s red card late in the game at Sincil Bank.

Demolition Man by tractorboykent
Paul Cook isn’t a man to mince words. Even though we are all sick of the continuing spiral of underachievement at Town, it was nevertheless still a bit of a shock to hear him lay into the 18 that capitulated to Wimbledon in what he described before kick-off as a season defining match.
Here We Go by tractorboykent
For a club recently described as Britain’s unhappiest, it may seem odd that Town fans are suddenly awash with optimism now that the deal is done.
One of the Strongest Squads? by NormEmerges
I keep hearing that ITFC has one of the strongest squads in League One. It’s certainly true that we have one of the biggest squads, but strongest? I would assume ‘strongest’ to mean ‘includes higher quality players for this league’. What do the facts tell us?
