  • Jan up before the beak, again

    Jan Molby has again been charged with misconduct by the FA after his altercation with the referee at the recent LDV Trophy game at Doncaster on October 16th.

    Jan was ordered from the touchline after getting angry about the tackle by Donnie keeper, Richardson on Harriers striker, Colin Larkin.

    Larks was just in the process of scoring the winning goal when he was bought down heavily by the keeper.

    The referee gave the goal but ignored the foul.

    Jan became so angry about the incident that he ran onto the pitch to challenge the ref about it.
    He was sent off the pitch and told to sit in the stand.

    Jan has said that he will appeal and request a personal hearing but will not make any other comment about the matter.

    In the home game with Cardiff City last season Jan was fined 500 and also given a warning about his conduct after having words with the ref at halftime.
    He was also given the same immediate punishment of being made to take a seat in the stand.

    Also in trouble is Tony Bird who has received a thre match ban after his sending off during the reserve game against Chesterfield last week.

    He will miss the games against Rushden, Luton and Exeter.

    Also sitting out games will be Ian Foster, this week against Darlington, after being sent off in the LDV game at Chesterfield and Drewe Broughton who will miss out on the visit of Luton Town on December 1st.

    This one is for an accumulation of five yellow cards.

    Other news:
    Stewart Hadley has turned down the chance of a spell on loan at Doc Martens side, Halesowen Town.
    He also turned down a transfer, thought to be worth 30,000, to Forest Green at the start of the season.

    Jan has already been dropping hints of a big clearout soon to make way for the permanent signings of Appleby, Keegan, Henriksen and maybe Larkin so it makes it all the more surprising as to why Hadley turned the Halesowen offer down.

    Other players possibly on the exit list are Tony Bird, Mark Shail, Brendan Murphy, Paul Webb and Dean Bennett.

    Out of these only Dean Bennett has any financial value but I would be very surprised to see him leave.

    Jan said to the Express & Star:
    "Hadley had a few run-outs earlier in the season but there comes a stage when your strikers have to make an impact either in goals or their approach play and he did not have enough impact in his game.

    Bird might have been in contention with Ian Foster and Drewe Broughton soon suspended but it looks as if he will be banned for his sending off in the reserves so he hasn't done himself any favours.

    It's wrong to say people are out of of the picture. It's difficult keeping 29 players happy when you can only involve 16 every week.

    People have fallen down the pecking order because the football we are playing at the moment has a lot of youthfulness about it.

    If Paul Webb had been our best player on August 11th then he would have been in the team".

    Jan also said that Dean Bennett remains on the transfer list even though he is in the middle of a good run of form at the moment.
