Club, Johnson and Carr In Trouble

Club, Johnson and Carr In Trouble

Birmingham defender Roger Johnson has been approached by the dear people at the FA and asked to explain his comments about referee Martin Atkinson at the weekend.

Can`t see how he can make it any clearer, Johnson branded the ref a 'disgrace`, mainly because he is indeed, a disgrace.

Blues have also been charged with failing to keep their players in order after they protested the decision by Atkinson to award the home side a penalty, just for a laugh.

On top of this, Stephen Carr finds himself having to answer a charge of improper conduct for gesturing to Villa fans exactly what he thought of them. The police are also laughably getting involved in that one.

An FA statement read: 'Birmingham City FC have been charged with failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion, relating to the players' behaviour towards referee Martin Atkinson following the awarding of a spot-kick to Aston Villa late in the fixture.

'Birmingham City defender Stephen Carr has been charged with improper conduct following an incident at the end of the same fixture.

'Meanwhile Roger Johnson, also of City, has been asked to explain comments made to the media after the fixture in relation to referee Martin Atkinson.'
