Neil Warnock charged with misconduct following Chelsea comments

Paul Gilham

When it comes to the FA throwing various books at managers, us here at We Ain't Got No History Towers are used to rolling our eyes and detailing the exact charge Blues boss Jose Mourinho has been hit with. But this time we get a little variety: a charge stemming from a match involving Chelsea and we don't have anything to worry about.

Neil Warnock, on the other hand, has been told that he is A Naughty Boy:

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock has been charged by The FA for misconduct in relation to media comments he made after the game against Chelsea on 18 October 2014.

It is alleged that Warnock’s post-match comments constituted improper conduct in that they implied the match referee was motivated by bias; and/or brought the game into disrepute, in contravention of FA Rule E3[1].

While this is probably to do with Warnock's line about Chelsea players surrounding the referee to get Damien Delany sent off (which, of course, Palace's players did with Cesar Azpilicueta about two minutes beforehand), in the world of my imagination the FA are fining him for this:

Disrepute indeed.
