Early attack still pays dividends at Wimbledon
LONDON At Wimbledon, where once players would charge the net almost on autopilot, the only time many get there now is when they shake hands at the end.
West Bromwich Albion and Watford have been fined 45,000 pounds ($56,100) apiece by the FA after admitting to a misconduct charge for failing to control their players during a Premier League game on Dec. 3.
Watford's Roberto Pereyra was sent off in the 84th minute after he reacted angrily to a challenge from West Brom midfielder James McClean, an incident that was followed by members of both teams clashing on the touchline.
West Brom won the match at the Hawthorns 3-1.
