Norwich City and Newcastle United have both been charged by the FA with failing to control their players following the double sending off that marred their recent 0-0 Premier League draw at Carrow Road.

The Canaries have until 6pm on Wednesday to respond to the charge after players from both sides became embroiled in the aftermath of the dismissals of Newcastle striker Loic Remy and Norwich midfielder Bradley Johnson. Remy was dismissed for a head butt gesture towards Johnson before the City midfielder was also sent off for raising his hands into the chest of the Frenchman. Johnson’s appeal against his three-match ban was upheld last week but Remy served the first of his three-match suspension for violent conduct in Saturday’s 3-0 derby defeat to Sunderland.

The FA released a statement on Monday lunchtime which read: “Both Norwich City and Newcastle United have been charged by The FA for failing to ensure their players conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and/or refrained from provocative behaviour. The charge relates to an incident in or around the 82nd minute of their match on Tuesday 28 January 2014. The clubs have until 6pm on Wednesday 5 February 2014 to respond to the charge.”

  • The FA. I hesitate to respond ! No good them throwing rolls over the port bottles MB. They are so unfit for purpose they couldn`t even find their own mouths. They, with Step Bladder should be collecting brain kits to service their source of income which is just as obscene as their organisations..

  • For what its worth, I think Carroll meant to do what he did and was rightly sent off, but I'm fully expecting him to get it rescinded.

  • How about charging the referee for losing control of the game and wrongful dismissal?

  • Septic Bloater is an obscenity, willb. No doubt. How do they get away with it?? I suggest `1984`, `Brave New World`, `Catch 22` and `The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists` as source material. Then a bit of Charles D!ckens. Now, there`s a proper journalist.

  • Whether Carroll plays or not, there`ll be plenty of excuses for our not winning or drawing. If we do manage to win, everything will be fine. Happy Clappy Time. Wins at 10 match intervals are fine. Championship form. Then League One....

  • When the FA rts make these calls, it is purely random. It`s based on who gets hit first in the bread roll throwing contest over lunch. Later, they do a replay over dinner, prior to repairing to a place of exotic entertainment. Utterly unfit for purpose or this Planet.

  • Fine is nothing compared to cost of relegation! Let's not get distracted from the real issues.

  • could be interesting, our red was rescinded, theirs wasn't. Can't see us getting away with this charge though. I also fully expect Carroll's red for WHam to be rescinded, leaving him free to face us next Tuesday - or will the F A back their golden ref, Mr Webb?
