Paul Lambert has accepted an £8000 fine and a touchline ban for 'thoroughly justified conduct,' sorry so called improper conduct due to the idiot linesman in the City game.
Paul pulled no punches following the game in his comments about the state of officiating, and obviously the Football Association don't take kindly to proper criticism.
A statement from the FA read:
'Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert has admitted a breach of FA Rule E3. It relates to language and/or behaviour amounting to improper conduct following his side's game at Manchester City. Lambert accepted the standard penalty for the charge and will now serve a one match touchline ban to commence with immediate effect. He has also been fined £8000.'
I look forward to the charge of inventing penalties for the linesman which will surely follow won't it...oh no, that's right, referee's are rarely accountable for their errors unless it affects the so called big boys are they.
