Morsy Charged By FA
Monday, 24th Jan 2022 17:45

Town skipper Samy Morsy has been charged with violent conduct by the FA following Saturday’s home game with Accrington Stanley.

The charge relates to a clash with Stanley midfielder Ethan Hamilton just before the half hour, which was highlighted in no uncertain terms by visitors’ chairman Andy Holt on Twitter following the match.

An FA statement reads: “Ipswich Town FC’s Sam Morsy has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E1.1 following their EFL League One match against Accrington Stanley FC on Saturday [22/01/22].

“The midfielder’s behaviour during the 27th minute was not seen by the match officials, but it was caught on camera, and allegedly constitutes violent conduct. Sam Morsy has until tomorrow [25/01/22] to provide a response.”

Town say they will be making no comment but it's understood Morsy will be contesting the charge.

Chris Knights - I think you'll find that the principle of "innocent until proven guilty" is a lot older than you are and it's actually your views that are symptomatic of the modern day social media kangaroo court. Hypocrite indeed.

Don't see anything wrong with this. Was a straight forward, deserved, non-violent, clean and precise punch in the chops.
Done and dusted.
Matter resolved.

From the footage itlooks like he shoved him in the shoulder to stop the Accrington player holding him. Then the bloke goes down like he's been caught right on the button. Accrington did everything they could to slow the game down, niggle and foul and fall over like pansies evry time a Town player went near them. It was a satisfying victory against a "typical" League one team. All 7' tall, putting themselves about and falling over at any given opportunity. If this video is the only evidence to back up a violent conduct charge, I don't see violent conduct. I see a player shoving the shoulder of another player who's trying to hold him (i.e. cheat). You can see Morsy's hand is open and he shoves his shoulder, even if he made some contact with his face, it would have been a very minor impact and didn't warrant the Accrington player going down holding his face. Again, cheating by feigning injury to get another player disciplined. Again, a very satisfying victory against opponents who play-acted, were very physical and lacked any real quality. Their midfield was only involved in the game when we were in possession.

Even Ethan Hamilton described as a "shove stroke punch to the face"sic. He ws cheating, like most of the rest of the Accrington team throughout the entire match. Luckily football won on the day and not gamesmanship and cheating. You better start drinking your milk Accrington boys or you'll be stuck at that club trying to ruin football matches. I don't think Holt was describing Morsy as a "sh#t-house" in a deregatory manner, I'm thinking the more brick outhouse scenario. Morsy was immense in that game and stood up to the bullying and cheating and was instrumental in our winning the game. Would hate to lose him for four games.

Seems that the accy player struck first at Morsy's throat to stop him running past?

Not that bad! Morsy must avoid more yellow cards to improve rest of team morale. Although this is a reason why we could do with another Morsy type midfielder.
