Just when we thought things were maybe getting a little better, Joe Kinnear has been charged with improper conduct by the English Football Association.
It was all this guy’s fault 😀
This comes after Joe had described the Barclays’ Premier League referee Martin Atkinson as a “Mickey Mouse” referee.
This follows Joe having been suspended for 3 games earlier in the season after describing an official at a Nottingham Forest game four years ago, as Coco The Clown. Joe was manager of Nottingham Forest at the time.
FA disciplinary chiefs had apparently written to the 61-year-old Irishman after the 2-1 defeat at Fulham earlier this month to ask Joe to explain the comments he made following the game.
After the FA (often referred to themselves as a Micky Mouse Organization) received the letter from Joe, which was said to contain a personal vindication of Joe’s comments, by Mickey himself, they further reviewed the case. The FA have now charged Joe officially, and he has until December 12th to respond – that’s two weeks tomorrow.
Well it seems the FA haven’t much of a sense of humor after all, even though they appointed Steve McClaren as England manager, which most fans now agree was just a huge joke.
Maybe the English FA should lighten up just a little bit, and we hear through the grapevine that although Joe may have been accurate in his assessment of the referee following the game, that evidence has been ruled inadmissible.
Life is never boring with Joe at the helm, that’s for sure.
