Owls Boss Charged By FA

Owls Boss Charged By FA

Wednesday boss Brian Laws has been charged by the FA on Monday following his outburst following the Owls' recent 1-1 draw at Preston North End.

Laws was incensed that play wasn't stopped in the run up to Preston's late equaliser through Jon Parkin as Wednesday tried to make a late substitution.

And the FA today charged the Owls boss with a breach of rule three of the rules today.

Laws could face a spell on the sidelines following the charge, but he's requested a personal hearing to state his case.

Personnally i think Laws is one of the more restrained and un-biased managers around, doesn't shout his mouth off at every opportunity and often talks a lot of sense. It's about time the FA did something about sub-standard officiating in the Championship and lower leagues rather than protecting them and hammering whoever dares speak out. I agree there is a time and place to air your views but football is a passionate game and in the heat of the moment it's difficult for managers to hold their tongue in the face of blatant errors or injustice, anybody who disagrees really doesn't understand the game. What i can't abide is managers who don't see their own players transgressions right in front of them yet clearly see things 80 yards away when opposition commits an offence, Mr Wenger is the biggest culprit!!

I sympathise with you, bfl. It must be hard for you to identify professionalism when you hear it. Especially with the shower you've got in charge at the Lane.
