FA Add Insult To Injury – Charge Carver With Misconduct


My goodness, just what are the FA smoking these days – and after just announcing they are taking no action on McManaman for that terrible tackle on Haidara, because they said they couldn’t since one official had witnessed the tackle, and presumably thought it was fair, they have now come out and charged Assistant Manager John Carver, who was sent off at half-time of the Wigan game, with misconduct.

You talk about adding insult to injury – this is completely ridiculous..

John Carver – charged by FA with misconduct
McManaman wasn’t charged with anything


Newcastle United have just confirmed that the FA have charged the club’s Assistant Manager John Carver with misconduct, and this is the statement Newcastle have  released on the matter:

Newcastle United have just received notification that assistant manager John Carver has been charged with misconduct by the FA in relation to an incident at half-time during Sunday’s Barclays Premier League fixture at Wigan.

It comes after the 48-year-old was involved in a half-time fracas during Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Wigan. Carver was seen arguing with both players and staff in reaction to Callum McManaman’s heavy challenge on Magpies defender Massadio Haidara.

The FA has also charged Wigan coach Graham Barrow with misconduct for his role during the incident.

So what are these guys at the FA smoking?

Newcastle have a player who had to be replaced after 12 minutes (Debuchy) on Sunday, and then have Massadio crippled by a terrible tackle that the FA will take no action on – and the referee didn’t see.

We just have to assume that the tackle made by McManaman was fair?

Newcastle then have a goal allowed that was clearly handball after 90 minutes to rob us of a draw – and now we have John Carver charged for misconduct.

It was not a good day at the office for Newcastle on Sunday – but the FA have again proven they are little short of a complete laughing stock.

Fact.

    Fully understand the reaction from Carver and can forgive him for it however rules are there to stop these confrontations so I cannot fault the FA for charging both him and the wigan coach.

    I disagree with how the FA prioritise the seriousness of these events but thats a different issue.

    From previous:

    Good statement from NUFC. Completely the opposite of the way Wigan have handled the whole thing, they’ve been a disgrace, from Martinez and Whelan saying it was a fair tackle, to the Wigan fans celebrating his commitment to the team. Absolutely shocking.

    Cheers lads for Nufc contact link. Posted a get well soon message.
    I can’t believe this has happened to us again!! What have we done wrong to deserve this? Yeah I know everybody uses that phrase when the sh1t hits the fanfan but Cmon. They loved ripping into Joey Barton every chance they had. and the Ben Arfa, De Jong thing.
    We all know that if had been 1 of Fergies players there would’ve been complete anarchy. Isn’t there someone who can over rule this pathetic, cowardly decision? All the pundits, some referees and probably every football fan (bar Wigans) knew something had to be done about that disgusting, malicious, scathing attack. I really hope Wigan go down and Whelan ends up bust!!!
    How can the justify letting McManaman off for that challenge and charge Carver for expressing his anger. He didn’t hit him, it was more like handbags really. The worlds gone mad!!!

    WWYCD – agreed, the Carver decision is fair, it’s just rubbing salt into the wounds that it follows on from the ridiculous McManaman decision.

    Great statement from the club, MA has seen his reputation turn around gradually in recent times, is this the continuation of Derek’s resurgence as a managing director who we can actually rely on? Hopefully, but he still has some way to go but great words from him.

    Pushy/Ian/Carl/Mr Funk/Scarlett Pimpernel/Abominable Snowman/Loch Ness Monster/Santa Claus/Toothfairy/ or other mythical made up persona you wish to adopt:

    Stop. Just stop. You’re embarrassing yourself. You know what you’re doing, we know what you’re doing, all you’re doing is ensuring that no one can take you seriously. Do you genuinely think that I crave your respect?

    Ibiza hasn’t a bad word to say about anyone which is laudable, however, from my personal viewpoint, you are a tedious excuse for an adult as from the word go you continuously pat yourself on the back instead of posting something sensible and achieving respect the usual way.

    Quick question, does hugging yourself at night make you feel less lonely? Is that why you make up this personas to convince yourself you’re not totally pathetic? If so, it’s counter productive.

    Can’t argue with the decision to ban carver tbh
    But what a joke not to take action against that Wigan thug, absolutely embarrassing, surely this can’t be right
    Atleast NUFC are handling them selfs with the upmost of professionalism and are doing them selfs proud in that regard, hopefully we can get plenty of backing from other clubs when we present a case to try and show the FA some logic in there unbelievably flawed system
    Won’t do massimo any good like, and won’t get that little scouse git get banned but hopefully prevent such miscarriages happening ever again

    Dear Sir/Madam.

    I would like to make a formal complaint regarding the disciplinary procedure that is used by your organisation. Following the recent tackle by Callum McManaman on Newcastle’s Massadio Haidara I was disgusted to see the incident will receive no further punishment. I have seen the reason given for this by an FA spokesman on television but I cannot agree with this. I have two issues to raise with this.

    The first is if retrospective action cannot be taken if a referee or official has seen the incident then why can action be taken to overturn a red card given to a player by an official. Surely the referee has seen the incident to give a red card so then why can this be looked at when the opposite, a foul seen but no action taken at the time, not be reviewed. It is a farce and nothing more than double standards.

    My second point is that the FA spokesman has said there are exceptional circumstances where a player can face further action, as in the case of Ben Thatcher, if the incident is seen but not fully punished at the time. This incident is just as disgusting as the tackle Ben Thatcher made so I fail to see how nothing can be done.

    Thank you for your time and I expect a reply to this email within the five days as your website states.

    My Email to the FA

    Dave Whelan, Monday: “I am not going to criticise Norman Deeley – these things happen in football. He came over the ball but he didn’t do it with the aim of breaking my leg.”

    Dave Whelan, Lancashire Evening Telegraph 2010: “Norman Deeley came right over the ball. Today he would have been sent off and banned for a long time. He came six inches over the ball, he came for me not the ball.” WTF ?????

    Remember this is the same FA that argue for fair play and respect and then appeal against a ban on Rooney when he kicked out at that player for England.

    The are not in it for the good of the game, they are only there to benefit themselves and use their position in the FA to boost there own egos without having to make any real decisions that impact on the game.

    Football as a whole is financially driven. It is all about decision can make the most money regardless of the outcome.

    Right next transfer window we dont go out and buy a player we buy a thug off the street. Offer him $1000 a week. When we next play Wigan we send him on and allow him to absolutely destroy the kid and then when he is sent off we take the charge and he doesn’t play for three whole games. Seems like thats the only way justice will be served.

    News is filtering through that injury to Haidara may not be as bad as first feared. Possibly just bad bruising and not ligament damage. Medical staff are struggling with diagnosis because of the amount of bruising and swelling. If you watch replays closely, the contact is actually just above the knee.

    Hope the young lad is alright. These injuries can seriously destroy a players mentality in a game. Especially bad for a defender, he will be half the player if he shirks out of 50/50 challenges

    So it is wrong according to the fa to express your anger and disgust at a thug? However , same thug can jeopardise a fellow professionals career ? There really is something wrong with the fa. Disgusting.

    The precedent has been set for seeking legal action. Victor Anichebe successfully sought compensation against kevin nolan for a tackle which resulted in a long term injury.

    According to the guys on BBC newcastle total sport it has to be the player which seeks legal action and not the club.

    Not sure of Haidara would do that but I hope he does but fully understand if he doesn’t want to go through with all of that.

    So judging by the FA’s ruling I could theoretically punch another player in the face, have the referee miss it, the linesman see the player I hit in a “collision” (not clearly) and I get away with it. Brilliant
