Blues Fined For Villa Fracas
Blues have been fined £10,000 by the FA on charges of 'failure to control their players' during the local derby match against Aston Villa.. Several Blues players confronted referee Martin Atkinson after he awarded Villa a penalty eight minutes from the end of the game at Villa Park last month. Atkinson adjudged that Blues defender RogerJohnson had fouled Gabriel Agbonlahor in the penalty box and James Milner scored from the resulting spot-kick to give Villa a 1-0 win at Villa Park on 25th April. A statement on the FA's official website reads: "At an Independent Regulatory Commission earlier today, Birmingham City FC were fined and warned as to their future conduct following a charge of failure to control their players."Having admitted the charge and taken into consideration the Club’s previous record, the Commission ordered that they be fined £10,000."
