Pardew Likely To Ask For Personal Hearing From FA Commission


Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has until 6:00 pm today, to respond the FA charge of misconduct, but it’s almost certain that he will accept the charge made against him – when he head butted Hull City player Davide Meyler in the game at Hull last Saturday.

David Meyler and Alan Pardew last Saturday – oh my

However, the Chronicle is reporting today they believe Alan will request a personal hearing next week, in front of the three-man FA committee.

It’s an important meeting for Alan and Newcastle if that happens, because he will get a ban and the worst thing that could happen is if it’s a stadium ban he gets rather than just a touch-line ban.

Maybe the best thing that the manager can expect is a five  game touch-line ban, but the English media has been going crazy, some even suggesting a stadium ban through the end of the season would be what he gets, but that would be grossly unfair.

However, this is the FA in action, and you can never accuse them of being logical about anything they do, if history is to be any guide.

And if Pardew is requesting a personal hearing, then we’ll not know what ban he gets until sometime next week, so this thing will just drag on.

We just hope John Carver and the coaches along with Alan are getting to know how yo use those walkie-talkie sets – or if he gets a stadium ban – how he phones in from his home.

Comments welcome.

    Just take the punishment instead of dragging it on.

    After 28 games with 10 to go
    Asenal and Liverpool are on 59 points
    Spurs in 5th place are on 53
    we are 10 points behind on 43
    Having looked at our 10 remaining fixtures I can see us getting 16 more points taking us to 59
    When we got 5th place 2 seasons ago it was with 65 points
    However my points tally is quite conservative
    If we play as we did against Hull for the next 10 games it is not inconceivable we could achieve Europe

    Mike Ashley, should back Pardew in the summer transfer window with some decent money, if he intends keeping faith with him.

    If he got a stadium ban it would be interesting to know what constitutes the stadium. For instance could he sit in the TV vans in the car park and watch the match from there? Will he be allowed to phone Carver during the match? etc.

    hello fellas,i don’t think Alan Pardew deserves a sacking,nomatter what the outcome of the charges.i believe he acts stupid,and yes unacceptable as a Nu mgr,but we have to think interms of what he did for the football club.he shows he can build a team,he can setup games perfectly,he can win games.i don’t think he did so much wrong this season as well as previously.i’m sure the clubs immediate reaction and the FA’s punishment will make him more disciplined from now on.we have to stand along side him.i believe we have a good mgr,we can achieve many things with him.mike knows about this no doubt.we’ve long-term plan wid him,remember.
    consequently,we should hire a new DOF now,to turn things around early b4 summer rolls.everything’ll settle down as usual.lets have some faith and be pardewed for the moment
    proud to be geordie

    martoon…They could have pardew send messages to Carver through the electronic advertising boards on the side of the pitch?

    “NUT HIM”
    “HOOF IT”
    “50% DISCOUNT AT SD”
    “FIST PUMP”

    Would make a nice change from seeing an Ashley company lining up the side of the pitch.

    I think a stadium ban is a bit much. The FA have to be balanced in their punishment and ignore the hype and rule on the evidence and be just.
    The ” string him up” brigade have to be ignored. Public lynching is illegal.

    There’s loads of Managers have lost their rag in a moment of madness, and worse than Pards. Jeez, Cloughie’s come out swinging during matches once or twice, knuckling fans. Although in his defence he was almost certainly very, very drunk at the time.

    In the case of a stadium ban – can we have a virtual Pardew Hologram in the stadium – big as you like – or that beyond our technology?

    Novo…I say we bring in the electric chair. He can stay in the stadium as long as he survives a pre-match shocking. Seems fair and reasonable and it’s entertainment for the whole family.

    I would love that…every time we score with Pardew missing a video of him fist pumping (followed by the classic batman comic book style “fistpump” (in the style of pow or thwack) appears on the hoardings).

    TS…I’m glad you’re on board with this. I also think Pardews notebook should be left in our technical area. His powers lie within the book, but shhh, don’t tell anyone.

    ibiza – good shout @ 6 -funny. Conjures up a pantomime comedy sketch of Percy issuing ridiculous/offensive instructions to Carver – I could imagine Percy communicating to Carver “stick one on the old c**t.”. Then the electronics malfunction and speed up -with Carver being unable to keep up. Just like a Benny Hill chase sequence.

    Ibiza – Still here – Scratching a living on the margins, while planning to take over the world…
    – I don’t post as much – too much idle negativity – I quite enjoy watching them trying to play football.
    . . and there is so much to enjoy on the margins – SO very very pleased for W@nga to get there logo all over the media.
    Please, Please can we have an advert where those ‘king puppets nut each other

    Combined with Ibiza idea, – we could also have Alan Pardew’s head whizzing round the advertising boards – perhaps following the play.

    Tuff…Well, it’s only taken me a few years, but thank you!

    I do think the only way we’ll ever get through the Ashley era, is to treat SJP as the greatest comedy club. Not quite what we all had in mind, but what ya gonna do?

    Arch…World domination is no easy feat. Last time I tried I got so close, but after 6 days I got a bit bored.

    There is a lot of negativity, although, a fair bit is justified imo. Every which way we look it seems to be a problem, apart from the sponsorship with Wonga of course.

    Loving the idea of that advert. Would be a great way to embrace their relationship with the club 🙂

    When is our next home game? We have a lot of work to do.

    First things first, convincing Ashley to remove some of his free advertising for a while. Shouldn’t be too difficult….

    I would kill me 🙁

    I think we should just give him his p45 and say thanks for the memories

    I know you keep telling me, your not so worried about the performances, as long as he gets points,

    but what about all the bad records he has set in 3 short years ?

    arch…But we’ll have the ad boards and the 100ft hologram, so it’s all good mate.

    Average…Yeah, it was Blackley and Brownley. If it had been a proper headbutt, rather than a squaring up of two people meant to be on the field, then maybe I could start to see his point, but the incident, whilst stupid, was hardly that violent.

    Anyway, welcome back.

    Yeh I know he has set some bad records but also set some good ones too.

    beating man utd away, beating them at home, beating chelsea, spurs…lots of good things too

    i agree i want better, he’s too inconsistent, but he’s not the worse we’ve had

    Yes I agree ibiza m8, all blown massively out of proportion! What do we expect though right? Everyone hates,us especially the southern press! The guy just sounded an awful lot like blackley, although blackley did say his was a telephone conversation and not a letter, but this would explain his preference for legal action (hard done by with a chip on his shoulder)
