FA HANDS DOWN PUNISHMENT

4 game ban for Lauren, 3 for Keown, 1 each for Parlour and Vieira plus assorted fines for these players and Cole and GBP 175,000 fine for Arsenal. I think I captured it all – anyone hear anything additional?

In my view a bit tough on Lauren who has never been in trouble before, but it could have been worse. What I didn’t notice in the soccernet report was reference to any punshment meted out to MU for their part in the fracas. Hmm – guess they played no part in it. Nothing new there.
