Appalling!! It gives the jobs worths at the FAW something to do. They only have 2 real clubs to govern and they jump on the band wagon at any given opprtunity!!! I think it's time that we were governed by the FA!

It was always on the cards, but disappointing never the less.

Club management are responsible for the conduct of their players. However,the referee in this case is accountable for allowing the game to go out of control. He,and his officials therefore, should be brought to task for their inability to control the game. Stuart Atwell is an accident waiting to happen.
