    Punishment in the modern era

    On Monday morning, Wolves defnder Roger Johnson rocked up to training "unfit to train properly", something we took to mean that he was still tired and emotional. The club said that they'd disciplined him and that was that. Johnson has also apologised.

    But what did that disciplinary procedure actually contain? Johnson hasn't featured in either of Wolves' last two games - a draw at Newcastle and a derby shellacking at Fulham - after being dropped following another 5-goal gubbing at home to West Brom. Now the BBC are reporting that Johnson is in the squad for the game at Molineux against Blackburn.

    The message we're getting is this: If you don't behave and turn up pissed for work, you run the risk of having to play against Blackburn. Sounds a bit excessive to us, but it could be worse - he could have to go up against Karl Henry at training.
