Avram Grant Banned for Two Games
The FA has handed West Ham manager Avram Grant a two-match touchline ban and a £6,000 fine for comments he made about referee Mike Jones after the Stoke game.
The ban takes immediate effect, which means Grant will have to watch the Bolton and Aston Villa games from the stands.
In other news the BBC report that West Ham are investigating a report that the families of Victor Obinna and Frederic Piquionne were racially abused by fans at Upton Park on Saturday.
An official statement on the club website says that West Ham are "with the police ... reviewing CCTV footage and gathering witness information."
