Dave Jones: Sheffield Wednesday manager charged by FA

The game had already seen four goals and a red card when Danny Pugh's heavy challenge on Inigo Calderon - and subsequent booking - sparked a furious reaction from the visiting bench.

In the ensuing bust-up, which involved players and staff from both benches, Owls boss Jones was sent to the Hillsborough stands as stewards and police tried to restore order.

The FA announced in a statement on their website: "The charges, both for alleged improper conduct, are in relation to an incident which occurred during the game."

Jones and Oatway each have until 4pm on Friday to respond to the charge.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
