Vardy faces extended ban for improper conduct

Johannesburg: Leicester City star striker James Vardy is facing the prospect of an extended suspension after being charged for improper conduct following his angry reaction to being send-off against West Ham on Sunday. 
In addition to an automatic one-match suspension for the second booking, the England international is likely to miss an extra game if he is found guilty of the charge.
Vardy shouted angrily at match referee Jonathan Moss after being shown red card for diving in an unsuccessful attempt to win a penalty in the second half of Sunday's 2-2 draw at the King Power Stadium.
The Football Association in a statement said that Leicester have also been charged for failing to control their players following the awarding of an 83rd-minute penalty to West Ham, Sport24 reported.
The FA added that both the player and the club have time until 6pm on Thursday to reply to their charge.
Vardy's suspension is considered as a setback for Leicester as the Premier League pace setters have just four games left to win the title for the first time.
Vardy has scored 22 league goals this season in addition to providing six assists.

Hardy over loaded - charge

Vardy's charge is overly officious. The first yellow wasn't a yellow. The second is bound to smart. The sending off in the circumstances is bound smart even further. No excuse under the rules but understandable. Also what was the referee's motives? The first charge does not hold. Remove it. The second charge is way too harsh. This only looks like the FA trying to be punitive against Leicester.

After losing control of the game….Blame everyone else

After losing control of the game….Blame everyone else No one goes to a football game to see how good a Ref does…. When a Ref disappears into a Game…and the game flows .. people say Great game. That Ref did a great job… But when I Ref inserts himself into a game…by losing control a game … And Justifying calls and decisions …. That Ref lost he Role in the in the game… If a player has to own up to his action as a professional… Then why doesn’t a Ref….right call or wrong call can be argued until the sun goes down… But when are the focus of the conversation for the next two days ..is the Ref…swallow you pride.. Own up… and don’t make thing worst…don’t hide behind the FA ‘s rules….make things right…and move forward Being a American …who watches EPL football each weekend for the last 6 years…. I was amazed at how much the game was effected by the poor decisions of those in charge And in the words of a great American Groucho Marx Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms Well in this case FA Intelligence is a contradiction in terms
