Posh and Cardiff charged

Post by ashman »

'Peterborough United and Cardiff City have been charged by the Football Association for a melee during their 2-2 Championship draw on Tuesday.
A foul by Cardiff's Marlon Pack in the 43rd minute sparked a shoving match, with Pack and Bluebirds team-mate Aden Flint being booked.
The clubs allegedly failed to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion.
Both Peterborough and Cardiff have until Monday to respond to the charge.
The game was goalless at the break, with Flint scoring two late goals to rescue Mick McCarthy's visitors a point from 2-0 down.'

A bit of a farce, they’ve even got a lot of the facts in the statement wrong, Thompson went in for a ball, got the ball but because he was going in two footed to get the ball his momentum took out Pack who hadn’t done anything wrong at that point. What he did do wrong, along with Flint and several others from Cardiff was to try and take the law into their own hands and to attempt to get Thompson sent off. Their actions are what got two of them booked. The referee hadn’t seen it as a foul. Unlike the referee against Derby who didn’t see an incident and none of the other officials saw it either, still gave a free kick to Derby, and booked Beevers for handball.
An incident later in the game involving JCH, also amazingly not seen by any of the officials, was blatantly fouled in what should have been a red card incident, was rewarded by getting a free kick for Cardiff.
