The FA's decision to charge Roger Johnson for his post-derby outburst is not only a blow for him and Birmingham City, but it's bad news for journalists and ultimately our loyal readers.

Football fans want to hear honest, heartfelt opinions from today's stars and not the usual tired old cliches that are becoming more and more common in the game.

However, the authority's decision to effectively gag the likes of Johnson will only cause footballers to shy away from saying what they genuinely believe. Like most sports, football is a game of opinions where not everybody is likely to agree.
