Thanks for Sweet F.A.

The start of a new week and surprise surprise - more bad publicity as the FA have today charged QPR under rule E20 (again) following the training ground fight with the Chinese Under 23 Olympic side last month.

It is suprising really that the FA have come down heavy on us yet again, seeing as the match in question was a non FA sanctioned match. But in saying that, this is QPR we are talking about - a Club that the FA decide to charge when their keeper gets assaulted by a Stoke fan at the Brittania Stadium. Stoke City however, get let off the hook!

It must also be mentioned that the representatives for the Chinese team accepted full responsibility for the incident and the Chinese FA have dropped all charges.

Hey, but as I said, we are QPR...

Let's see what the FA do with regards to the melee at the Carling Cup Fina
l yesterday? I bet it's not nearly as much as we are going to get fined?

    If the FA charge anyone over a non fa competition that is a disgrace in itself. The fa should get their own house in order before poking the nose's into other peoples business (competitions). Forgive but isn't the Carling cup a football league a competition the FA are wrong, but then again they did appoint the last two England managers both still being paid even though the last incumbent left the job after England's feeble capitulation in the last World Cup. The FA should all resign at once before they do to football in this country what Sven and his ex boss did to Faria.

    Yes, it is a disgrace and yes, the Carling Cup is a football league comp. My point is that I would wager that the Premiership big boys will not get the punishment that we do.

    Good comment though and thanks, but please do sign it next time ;-)

    Also note, there has been very little or no mention of the scrap during and after the Chelsea XI v China game!!

    This is such a disgrace, it makes my blood boil!
    Can things get any worse?
    I agree with the first comment, if the FA put as much effort into sorting out their own affairs as they did nit picking at QPR then English football wouldn't be in such dire straits!

    Thanks Corinne and I agree...

    'Sven Goran Erikkson' - enough siad that can sum up the FA really?
