'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Watford and Aidy in the clear

The FA has confirmed that Watford manager Aidy Boothroyd and his players have no case to answer following the fracas during Tuesday’s night’s semi-final with Crystal Palace.

According to the official site, a letter from the FA to the club read: “It is alleged that in or around the 63rd minute of the match, Watford FC failed to ensure that its players and/or officials and/or employees conducted themselves in an orderly fashion, and refrained from provocative behaviour.'

The incident occurred when the gaffer, who was standing on the touchline, knocked the ball away from Fitz Hall. The former Southampton then appeared to elbow Boothroyd sparking a 40-man brawl that culminated in Boothroyd being asked to watch the rest of the second-leg from the stands.

However, the Hornets have been charged with misconduct following the melee and have until May 26 to indicate whether it is going to admit or deny the FA charges and whether it will request a personal hearing.

Crystal Palace have admitted to the FA charge of failing to control their players and officials and will be making no further comment.

Fitz Hall should have got a red card and Betty ought to have known better and should have been charged with misconduct too. The FA are inconsistent.
