Newcastle To Defend Themselves Against FA Charge – Here’s Why


Arsenal and Newcastle have until Thursday to respond to the FA charges of failing to control their players during Saturday’s 0-0 draw at St James’ Park.

Derek LLambias – will contest FA Charge

Arsenal have already appealed the red card given to Gervinho,and there will be a decision on that today, but also Alex Song is very likely to face a three match ban because of  what looked like a deliberate stamp on Joey Barton.

The particular event was missed by match referee Peter Walton.

And Newcastle confirmed yesterday that they would be contesting the charge from the FA, although no word from Arsenal yet, as to their plans.

Joey Barton received a yellow card in that altercation with Gervinho, but then tweeted after the game that he had “went down easily” from a Gervinho slap to the face.

Why can’t he just keep quiet?

Joey threw himself to the floor when Gervinho slapped him, and that ended in the Ivorian getting his marching orders.

We think Newcastle will defend the charge on the basis that Barton was the only Newcastle player who acted out of line, when he dragged Gervinho up by his collar after the Arsenal winger had taken his dive.

But Joey had been stamped on earlier in the game by Alex Song, which looked deliberate, and Newcastle will point out that Joey did nothing about that, other than to try to bring it to the other attention of the match officials.

How could four officials miss the stamp?

And Newcastle will also point out that they have already issued directives to their players on the use use of Twitter, and the use other social network sites, and are one of the first clubs in the country to do that.

We’re sure that the FA will also be looking into Joey’s tweets after the game, which did nothing to calm the situation.

And those tweets have now made it more difficult for Newcastle to defend themselves against the FA charges, because of Joey’s admissions.

We think the club has a decent chance of satisfactorily answering the FA  charges, but whether Newcastle will receive any punishment, we don’t know.

Comments welcome.

    Who would the punish and for what? Who was out of control?

    BarToon was booked, end of.

    Funny how they can review this after the game but not Ben Arfa’s leg breaking tackle?

    Another case of the Cockney Mafia putting a Northern club to the sword, You would think our own Cockney chief might have a special handshake for somone in the F.A to make sure they go easy on us, not meaning a bribe but he’s probably a member of the freemasons or something.

    I don’t like the way the club is run but that is a wicked thing to say on a public website.

    This Derek Lamearse is lower than a snakes belly in my opinion, but kiddy fiddler is a bit strong, I personally would never call anyone that, no matter how much I dislike them, Unless it was a true comment of course, then I would probably follow it up with a Left hook.

    Honestly though Derek looks as if somebody has a gun pointing straight at his head saying, “If you don’t smile for this photo I’m gonna shoot you”!!

    Typical this like,

    its as if the FA know they cant do barton so theyre like “we gotta do summit”

    like people have said all the other players tried to calm the situation down so they surely have to be talking about barton.

    I EFFING HATE THE FA!!!!

    I’d probably give him the same treatment I would give to Gary Glitter, Put it this way, I’d probably get some jail time but I’d be a Hero in my area for doing in a Paedo.

    100% correct m8, did u see his clenched fist at start of game ??? wtf was that all about ??? have been a big supporter of JB even up until sat, but once again he overstepped the mark. even as a free agent nobody apart from stoke was interested.

    Not disagreeing with your comment, He looks like a stereotipical paedo, but in truth what does a Paedo really look like? Just like anyone else! Anyway enough of this from me, this is after all a blog for football, Expecting to get the book thrown at us but Arsenal will get a reduced charge by the F.A us Northerners will get the rough end of the stick as usual.

    Plant Lavendar Plants around your garden, and the cats hate them, Fairly cheap to buy aswell, (around £2 for a plant). They grow really quickly too and spread themselves out, so I wouldn’t plant more than 2 in the same spot.

    @Neil – Agreed it does sound a tad dodgy. I always hoped that it was just suspicious behaviour… I will remember the Who and keep it like that. 🙂 Do you really think he is going to go and get 2 strikers!!! That would be a nice week. Steve Bruce seems pretty cocky after the Anfield draw.. I officially and public-ally dislike him – robbing all the young Irish talent before we can – just glad we nipped them for Fergie…

    Thanks toonfan76 – I’ve got one of those high pitched sensor things but it drives me more nuts than them! I will get some lavender things then from the old B&Q this weekend.
    Everyone – just to clarify I do realise that this is a footy blog but hopefully by asking on here just shows how fed up I am with the problem 🙂

    @ ichriso – not for £30, but I would for £10m at the end of the season. Liverpool have a bit of history for that… remember what they did with Robbie Keane? Tools.

    Speaking of Keane I see hes shipped out to somewhere else he has supported all his life

    Yeah, sums dont add up, £8.5m for Maynard, I think not!

    I would prefer Doyle.

    I would not want Best to leave, he looks better every game.

    @drongo 29. The problem I would have is that DL may seriously consider the offer as it would reduce the wage bill 😉

    I’ve got one but apparently my lass says that’s “cruel”!!
