The FA have slapped their danglies down on the desk this afternoon by chucking disciplinary charges at absolutely everybody involved in Saturday’s ding-dong between Chelsea and Arsenal.

Both Diego Costa and Gabriel Paulista have been charged with violent conduct, while both Chelsea and Arsenal have been charged with a failure to control their players.

Link to the FA statement is here…

All parties have until Thursday, 24th September to respond.

The resultant paperwork should be fun.

    It will be ridiculous for the English FA to charge Paulista & Arsenal FC along Chelsea & Diego Costa. Such decisions demoralizing and a total negation to football ethnics. Is either FA or Mike Dean have collected bribe from those who deserved punishments or for fear of Mourinho. From me that decision is partial. Good luck to english football.

    Some Referees in the EPL have relegated themselves to the background especially when it involves the bigwigs like Chelsea. Referees are supposed to be neutral but in the EPL, they are all have their clubs of interest when it comes to the field of play, they portray very openly believing the centre referee’s decision stands with the FA having no disciplinary mechanism for their inactions. Mike Dean is one of such callous referees that deserve early retirement before the interesting game of football is murdered in England.

    I hereby pledge to boycott paper, and office supply stores for good measure.
