Alan Pardew Apologizes For Pushing Official


Alan Pardew could well get a fine and also a suspension, after he was seen to push the referee’s assistant when the assistant didn’t flag for the ball being out of play on the touchline, and Spurs made a quick attack with Newcastle short at the back.

Alan Pardew – pushed official in second half

It happened in the second half after about an hour, and the ball did look out, but you cannot do that kind of thing to the officials, and Alan will likely get some kind of penalty from the English FA.

Alan went into the stands and initially sat next to Managing Director Derek LLambias,  and tried to get a walkie talkie working to communicate with the Assistant Manager John Carver, but Alan seemed to give up on that – so much for advanced technology.

In the end, Alan got his instructions relayed to John via officials running down the to the bench with Alan’s instructions, but from now on surely we can have  a walkie talkie that works, just in case the Newcastle manager has another rush of blood on the touchline.

Alan told ESPN after the game today:

“It was ridiculous really, I have to apologise publicly, I’ve been to see the officials already.”  “I’ve been telling my players this week to behave and have the Olympic spirit. I can only apologise. It was stupid. I don’t know what I was thinking.”

A fine, a touchline ban or both could now follow from the Football Association.

Comment welcome.

    Pardew wasn’t even looking at the official when he ‘pushed’ him. Nothing to it. The nonsense with the broken headset was hilarious though.

    No doubt it’ll be a 100 game touchline ban, and a £5,000,000 fine.

    I had forgotten AP said this:

    Chris Conway ?@Chris_Conway
    Eric Pieters was apparently spotted at St James’ Park today. Pardew said today that the next signing might surprise. Is he it? #NUFC

    tds: this is the respect our lot earned last season – the spuds would’ve been ecstatic with a draw.

    Pleased to see perch play like he does, iron in the belly for the toon today. Gutierrez and santon look dangerous and well balanced on that side and anita has a big turn of pace, looks like he’s gonna suprise us all to be fair

    all in all, if we turn last seasons defeats into draws and last seasons draws into wins we’ll win the title! 2 points up on the spurs home came from last season….. 🙂 we’ll do well to match the win at stamford bridge last season tho

    I wouldn’t read too much into Williamson, probably saved for Thursday, I would be worried if we get a lb santon and hba is suicide

    Pieters id Kruls best mate and is currently injured so maybe it was a flying visit.

    But maybe there was more to it.

    @Beattie25 – yeah, thought liverpool trying to play the barcelona way was a bit like getting donkeys to do dressage! Saying that, was at that game today and west brom were very very good, mulumbu is an absolute beast and Yacob looked useful! Lukaku is huge too, didnt realise how big, for a 19year old he looks 30!

    not surprised Pardew took a wobbler i could see the ball was out from level 7 and i had my eyes closed so how the pri*k missed it is beyond me, but if MR Atkinson had not sent Pardew to the stands he would not have given the pen mind i do admit to being slightly biased in this matter

    I’ve been telling everyone that it was Martinez’s team for months now, every time people were raving about him. It’s SO much easier to implement philosophy when you’re in League One and there’s no pressure on you to win games.

    Amusingly his Swansea side couldn’t find the net because of his conservative tactics, and they just scored 5 away from home under Laudrup.

    That was a highly enjoyable game. Not necessarily for the offensive showing.

    You had intrigue at the very beginning..Where is Marveaux? Then Pardew assaults the lineman, proving it’s not just ball boys who are unsafe when on the sidelines. Pardew and all the old people around him prove they don’t know how to use phones. Saylor makes an ingenious use of his head to prevent a corner kick.

    oh and newcastle won.
