Dave Jones: Suspended ban kicks in following latest charge

Dave Jones: Suspended ban kicks in following latest charge

Jones was charged by the Football Association with improper conduct for his post-match comments at Bristol City last week.

The charge was upheld at Thursday's disciplinary hearing, triggering a one-match suspended ban hanging over the Wednesday boss since a touchline bust-up at Brighton earlier this year.

A further one-match suspension was imposed, consigning Jones to the stands for his side's forthcoming games against Leeds and Blackpool.

Bristol City's last-minute equaliser at Ashton Gate was the source of Jones' anger.

He said at the time: "It was a forearm smash by Marvin Elliott. Anywhere else on the pitch, it would have been a free-kick.

"We had taken everything City could throw at us and all you ask is a fair deal from the match officials.

"We have had trouble with this referee (Darren Deadman) before. If he had done his job we would have been going home with three points, but I get tired of saying that sort of thing."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
