Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday face FA charge after brawl

MILLWALL and Sheffield Wednesday have landed themselves in hot water with the Football Association after a 22-man brawl at The Den.

The FA are investigating the melee which resulted in Shane Lowry and Giles Coke being sent off for violent conduct on Tuesday night.

Lions goalkeeper Stephen Bywater and Owls striker Atdhe Nuhiu were also booked after the fracas, which stopped play for around five minutes.

The FA have requested video footage of the incident and are considering charging both clubs with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.

If found guilty, fines are likely to follow.

Referee Lee Probert also included details of a bottle-throwing incident in his report.

Chief executive Andy Ambler said: "We will be speaking to the FA.

"It might only have been one person who threw a bottle, but that one person brings us all down and we need to identify them."

    Both clubs charged with not controlling there players, nothing mentiond about the officials not controlling the game and missing decesions and losing control of the situation, I am not condoning what happened but the 4 blokes charged with refing ther game were once again woeful, FA look to yourself on this one.

    But the bottle job will cost Millwall loads of dough caused by a doughnut.

    The ref played his role for sure, but SURELY as adults we have to accept responsibility for our actions. Hiding behind a ref's performance is ridiculous and smacks of immaturity. I never once felt like throwing a bottle or anything else for that matter, despite seeing the ref lose the plot completely. The individual that threw the bottle deserves to be identified and banned.

      @Jim28: Bloody should be, but it won't get half the coverage. This is what hacks me off, stuff like this distracts from the positive stuff going on at the club and just gives ammunition toi those that would do us harm. Like a dog that bites its own bloody tail...whats the point?

    If that t*** Lowery had used more than the one brain cell he has he would have stayed down, their man would have been off we would have had a man advantage and no mass brawl for the FA to cream their pants over. F****** d*******.

      @Sealion: The kick on Lowry was very slight, hard to even see clearly, and certainly a more experienced pro would have got his revenge at a later point in the game. Lowry sees the red mist too frequently for my liking. Annoying thing was, up till that point he would of been my Man Of the Match.

      @Sealion: First the barney in corner proberly done more for team sprit than the week in Portugal as no one bottled it (no pun intened) yes we will both get done for it but the one to worry about is (in FA terms) the missel throwing incident.

      In the past this can be dealt with by docking points ground closure or worse both, but look on the bright side that we may only be talking of a fine, lets see how the FA deal with Everton

    SOME SUPPORTERS, FIND IT VERY HARD TO KEEP THEIR EMOTION IN CHECK, AND DO THINGS LIKE
    THIS AT TIMES. [ IVE SEEN IT OVER THE YEARS ]..............
    AND ONE THING................THE MAIN THING IS, MILLWALL FANS HAVE ALWAYS STUCK - UP FOR EACH OTHER, THIS HAS HAPPENS ACROSS THE WHOLE COUNTRY, I HAVE WITNESSED THIS.........
    SO I [ STORMIN'NORMAN ] REFUSE TO HAVE A GO AT A FELLOW MILLWALL FAN, NO MATTER WHAT ! ..........................
    MILLWALL FANS ARE PICKED UPON, ALL OVER THE PLACE ON AWAY MATCHES,[ QUITE OFTEN FOR NO REASON AT ALL ] AND WHO KNOWS,WHEN , I MAY NEED THE HELP OF THESE FELLOW MILLWALL FANS............
    " NO ONE LIKES US, WE DON'T CARE "

      @bermlion: Brilliant post bermlion , right with you on all points, I actually think that the Millwall Board should Frame that post and put it on the walls all around the club for fans to read. Millwall Supporters Stand Firm with each other.

      @bermlion: any fans actions that result in Millwall getting punished be it a fine or pts docked can f*** off!

      Yes you support the same team as me, that's great you've picked well. But do anything to f*** with my team and I don't care if you call yourself a wall fan. Show your frustration at the officials by swearing.

      If/when we lose points or have to play behind closed doors will you still refuse to have a go?

    I would add, that the atmosphere in the stands on Tuesday was brilliant, best i have experienced in a long time. Plenty of noise, support for the team and agression to the oppo, our fans were fantastic in the whole.

    Being charged by the FA? What a joke from a bunch of self appointed bureaucrats who spend most of their time wining and dining, going abroad for free and staying in plush hotels all expenses paid, and many other perks. So a plastic bottle was thrown on the pitch? Could have been a Sheffield supporter, who knows and it did not disrupt the game. They are picking on Millwall again when the same evening as I was listening to the Liverpool V Everton game the commentator said some missiles were being thrown onto the pitch. No mention of that by the FA or in the press? Why is that?

    Both Millwall and Wednesday will be fined but the referee should also face charges for failing to control the players on the pitch where he was supposed to be in control. The club MUST use this opportunity to highlight the referees poor performance.

    Well done Probert. You played a blinder. Your pre match wish of having the game be all about you has worked. A good ref isn't noticed. Now clear off back to the premier league. FA can do one too. Probert spoilt what was a good game between two teams. I am however not surprised that a L**ds fan clumped Kirkland last year after his display of embarrassing antics which didn't help the ref either.
