Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday plead guilty to FA charge

MILLWALL and Sheffield Wednesday have admitted an FA misconduct charge.

The clubs were accused of failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion during last month's 1-1 draw at The Den.

Shane Lowry and Giles Coke were both shown red cards following a mass brawl in the 88th minute of the match.



The FA are set to announce on Monday what punishments are to be handed out, but fines are inevitable.

It is understood the incident was deemed particularly serious by the game's governing body given the number of players involved and the proximity of the melee to the crowd.

Manager Ian Holloway said last week: "I thought 95 percent of the players who got involved were trying to calm things down."

    Ah well, that's a 20 grand fine then,cos that's what Newcastle have just got for the same offence wth Norwich. What a waste of money we ain't even got. So well done to all involved, you should pay it between you out of your own pocket.

    Yeah, we all know there was not a punch thrown or anything close, it's just an easy way of getting easy money for the FA. Like fines aimed at motorists for doing 31 in a 30 mph zone, pathetic.

    First of the charge doesn't mention a bottle..it is a failure to control the players..there was only one player who attacked another & that weren't ours (coke) so what video was they watching...mind you they had the refs word on it..fine upstanding gent he turned out to be

    Agree with so many of the posts on here, sure the Feds want to protect the brand and do all the politically correct b******* and make it safe for young children to see without being traumatised for the rest of their lives but, f*** me, if it's a blu for the ages , punish players and clubs otherwise lighten up and use commonsense!

    Really didn't seem that bad to me, as Ollie said most of the players were trying to calm things down.

    At the Newcastle v Sunderland game all sorts of missiles were thrown onto the pitch and there was a lot of other trouble between supporters, we hear no mention of it. Why are Millwall always being singled out?

    @DELBOY64 : not a chance del, he's one of the top premiership refs ( mr umpty back p****) so he can not be wrong, have they asked him to explain why he allowed Morrison to lay in their goalmouth for so long while we scored, great for us , but s*** refereeing none the less
