Alan Pardew Charged By FA – But For What?


When it rains it pours.

Alan Pardew – has been charged by English FA

After failing to get a striker into the club over the summer, basically because Newcastle wouldn’t pay out the money, would you believe the English FA have charged Newcastle manager with improper conduct.

Why, we have no idea.

The charge was announced earlier today, and it relates to comments made before Newcastle’s derby game away to Sunderland on August 20th.

The media is surmising the charge is related to Alan’s comments about the referee for the game – Howard Webb – who pf course refereed the World Cup[ final last summer In South Africa.

We know that after the game, Alan praised Webb as a first class referee, which of course is exactly what Howard Webb is.

One of the things Alan Pardew said before the game that related to the referee was the following:

“The referee needs to make sure he referees the game from a completely neutral point of view because Joey has been in the press a fair bit this week – more than Joey would have liked and more than I would like.’

“And I’m sure he’ll get a mention in Sunderland’s game plan.”  “He’s a very, very good player and they’ll need to stop him but I’ve got no qualms about throwing Joey in there, no doubts at all. But the referee will need to be astute.”

There doesn’t seem to be much wrong with that statement and maybe the FA are over-reacting.

Pardew has until 4:00 pm next Monday afternoon to respond, assuming he can work out what he said that has upset the FA.

We have just two words to say to the English FA – picky, picky.

And it’s not like Alan Pardew hasn’t enough on his plate at the moment, and he still has to go into the Lion’s den once again and face the local Newcastle reporters.

His job will be to cover for Mike Ashley and Derek LLambias again, and to explain or try to explain, how come the club didn’t sign a top striker this summer, even though that’s not part of  Alan’s job.

The word on Alan last night was that he was totally disappointed the club didn’t sign a top striker.

We are starting to take to Alan, if only that the man shows courage in adversity, and of course, as he is no doubt finding out quickly,  he’ll get quite a bit of adversity managing Newcastle United.

😀

But we support the players and we support the manager and the coaching staff at Newcastle 100%, and we’re looking forward to that 4th win in a row at QPR,  a week come Monday.

Howay The Lads!!

    FA are overreacting, when did they get anything right? It’s the ref who should be reprimanded for not seeing the stamp on Joey.

    Think you’re over analyzing Santon a bit mate lol. Got a disliking for him? ;/

    At the end of the day, we signed a left back from Inter Milan, who Mourinho said could be the next Maldini, and Ronaldo said was one of the toughest defenders he’s ever played against.

    That’s good enough for me lol.

    ok a striker would of been nice but did all of you want the 35mil blown in 1 transfer window , we have strengthend our squad for now , we are buying young promisiing flair players i dont see the problem, we also kept hold of tiote !!!! enrique was the last year of his contract we didnt have much choice , nolan < cabaye , and now bartons iss gone we are abble to play a propper winger suiting are new style !!!! we could be everton buying basicly no1 , we could be sunderland blowing money on has beens like wes brown and john o shea? would you rather that? people forgett that ashley pumped millions into our club when we were relegated keeping some of our top earners stimaking sure we earned promotion at the first time of asking, why would you set up a business to fail… yes i think MA is clever with his monney and wont pay over the odds for the wrong type of players but i dont think that simple matter should hinder our support for the club we have had a great start to the season with the bunch we have got get behind the lads rather than moaning about something you cant change and something in which you dont no the full story behind!!

    hey i was wondering if you guys had info about the income at the club someone posted yesterday that anually for stadium revenue is arouind …… 30 M ….. So what about the rest of the income, TV, Sponsorship ????

    FAT W A N** K has put in 130 mill of his own money on top of the 134 he bought the club for so once he makes the 130 back he can sell the club for anything over 134 and make a profit. He’s got 60mil like joey said, so another 60 and we should be rid of the bast****

    Nothing against Santon. As you can see in the last post, he’s on my team as RB.

    In fact, i like this kind of very technical italian’s defensors.

    I would have said the same about any right footed guy in a LB position. And it’s also true for the great names you told me.

    One more time, this is a question of philisophy about how a team must play.

    It’s not that he has been charged one worries about, it is how long the FA decide to ban him. They could really shaft NUFC with a 6 training & game ban or the like.

    Meanwhile, he has no one to answer to for the failure to land a striker. Nor should he comment on it. Buying players is not his remit. So refer questions to the responsible party, Alan.

    Good window, if the team continues to getl and win matches, finding a #9 will be much easier in the next window or two.

    So MA has profited £60 mill…from what?
    And u listened to Joey Barton saying this?
    If u go back, like several blogs has, can probably even find u some, u’ll see that we’d spent every penny up to the Carroll sale.
    It’s the £35 million thats in question here mate, where did they go?
    No one has ever spoken about £60 million except Joey, who by the way, is quite possible one of the few men on earth you should NEVER take financial advise from.

    gnd – if you want to know where the last 5 years (and the next year) of shirt sponsor money went its currently at a racehorse auction and will mostly be found on the old trafford bench.

    yep – we got it all paid up front to cover the MO deal.

    Clever that.

    Would love to see Pardew just say “You’ll have to ask Derek about that, as it was his responsibility”. Unfortunately, DL has the privalege of never speaking to the media.

    niafron

    I think it could work well to be honest. He’s got a lot of pace and strength, much like Jose did. If Mourinho played him at LB, that’s good enough for me aha. But we should have signed Pieters as well. Pieters could cover LB & CB, and Santon LB & RB. Two players and we’d have adequate cover for all 4 positions, and we could afford to let Simpson go.

    Never know Pieters could be on his way on a free next June.

    Then Simmo can toddle off to play for QPR post relegation.

    Is it just me that thinks he’s a Cockasaurus Rex

    He gives us the pleasure of his wonderful words of wisdom in the match day programs every now and again though 😉

    Wouldn’t want him speaking too much – would take away from how much we all look forward to his match notes (;

    No, i’m not so absolutist. You’re right, nothing prevent him to use his left foot, and he’s maybe even good with it.

    But of what i’ve seen, he don’t do it easily. At least, he’s not used to. Look the vids, if he’s aiming all the time for the inner side of the pitch, i don’t think it’s a coincidence.

    This match was ages ago … why now?

    I can understand the charge. He was seeking to influence the referee.
    Albeit to be reasonable/fair to Barton but the FA think managers don’t need to be telling their neutral, perfect referees how to do their job.

    Once again Pardew’s mouth gets him into trouble.

    Pardew should be charged with impersonating a football manager this oafs had nine months to get a number nine in. The makems got one in within three hours the buck stops with pardew hes the gob-shite who bangs on about bringing in a top striker but his day of reckoning is coming!

    However good he is at this and that, he’s only 20, and he’s an Italian in England.
    Common sense tells me that in any case, however how good he potentially is, it should take some time for him to settle and get used to the english game.
    And he does looks like he enjoys going forward, like Enrique, possibly even more so, and ye, he tends to cut in allot.

    I’m looking forward to seeing him against QPR tho.

    Everyone – except you, apparently – knows that it is not Pardews job to sign players. He has said that many times.

    No loans as only Football League and Conference clubs get a loan window after the transfer window and the only free agent strikers of note that I can find are James Beattie and El Hadji Diouf. Former Valencia winger Vicente is available for free though. Only 30, might be worth a go although Brighton are already in for him and they’ll probably offer him better terms.

    They are punishing them for not getting a striker hhh.. just kidding.

    As we are now without a new striker. I am putting my money on Best scoring 20 this season (if he will play regularly and for the whole season without serious injuries). If Nolan did 12 with his lazy arse, then Best is defo can get to 20. (only 18 goals to go hhh…)

    Well, hoping that this season will go well and everybody will gel.
    Best 20
    Ba 15
    Shola 8-10
    Loven – 4
    Obe 4
    Saylor and Colo 6 together
    Cabaye 6
    HBA (come back already please) 10
    Raylor 6
    Sammy 3
    Vuckic 1
    Guti 3
    Marv 2-4
    Tiote 1

    Again, this is IF all goes well, the teams plays like a team, a do well against the other 15 teams out of the top 4. and All our best players stay in shape (HBA, Ba, Cabaye, Marv, Obe, Colo and Saylor, and yes, I am putting Shola there as well, what can I do, I decided that he is who he is and I just gonna have to live with that).

    The link you posted with Ben Arfa at PSG game, is there any suggestion that they might try and buy him? Would of thought he would be the type of player that would suit them.
