Alan Pardew To Meet With FA Commission On Tuesday

BT Sport is reporting tonight that Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is all set to meet with the three-man FA commission on Tuesday and after that meeting he will find out what his punishment is.

Alan Pardew and David Meyler at Hull

Pardew is charged with improper conduct by the FA for head-butting Hull City midfielder David Meyler in the game at Hull nine days ago, and Alan requested a personal hearing, where he will be represented by a top lawyer.

Some news outlets are reporting (or should that be they are hoping) that Alan could  receive a stadium ban, rather than a touchline ban, which means he would not be able to attend the games, but we think that would be a huge over-reaction to what Alan Pardew did – bad though it was.

Newcastle United have already taken decisive action by fining their manager £100,000, and issuing him with a formal warning as to his future conduct.

One thing that doesn’t help the manager is that he’s had some touch-line altercations over the last two seasons,  and they can be taken into account when the commission reaches its decision on his punishment.

Pardew used (very) foul language earlier in the year, when verbally abusing Manchester City’s Chilean manager Manuel Pellegrini, who didn’t seem to understand the words Alan used.

He received a warning from the FA for that, and he also pushed an assistant referee in August of 2012, for which he received a £20,000 fine and a two match touchline ban.

Comments welcome.

    I did some research I don’t see a pattern that we are waiting to get player off the books before we buy. Deals tend to drag on for other reasons.
    For example we signed Cabaye on June 10 and sold Nolan on June16 June.
    Debuchy came early January but Simmo stayed until June.
    Mbiwa was signed in January and Perch was kept on until the Summer.
    Ben-arfa was loan late August but signed on January 5.
    Tiote and Anita signed late August.
    Youngsters like Good was done early.

    So seem to be other factors at play.

    That last article is just a little snippet of what to expect from Ed when he wants to spice things up. If Yohan doesn’t break into the PSG team pretty soon we’ll be littered with ‘Cabaye on way back to Newcastle?’ and ‘Will Newcastle provide PSG benchwarmer a way back?’ articles for goodness knows how long.

    He’s still doing bloody Andy Carroll and Demba Ba articles for crying out loud! Jesus wept!

    To be fair Ciaran ed ain’t the only one running those articles! National press and football sites have ran the carroll to newcastle story to death aswell as Ba coming back! Expect to see the latter linked again in july and august

    Sadly, it won’t be over tomorrow. It will continue like with Suarez until after he’s been back a couple games.

    In the beginning it will be all about how he’s doing in his comeback and until the all about the absence.

    cant think of any player we have sold in the last few years I would want back,

    we all move on and I doubt any of them wanna come back
    only carol I would think would have come home but I think it would have been a disaster

    I understand Ed simply regurgitates what is printed in the media, but these players do not play for us any more and we simply make ourselves look sad and pathetic having forums littered with former players who we seem to be desperate to have back.

    There was nothing in that recent article that was in any way relevant to Newcastle other than Cabaye used to play for us. I don’t give a s**t if he isn’t starting for PSG because as far as being a NUFC supporter, it does not concern me.

    I’d have Barton and Enrique back in a heart-beat. Perch was always a solid squad player and I don’t understand why we let him go.

    Also, looking at the dearth of options up front, I’d even take Lovenkrands or Leon Best back – not that either were world beaters mind, but they would score more than Shola and Cisse I’d venture.

    The FA have no option but to throw the book at him.

    Anything considered slightly lenient will be condemned by the powerful bloodthirsty media. I firmly believe he will sit out the rest of the season. The FA seem to make things up as they go along, the majority of incidents tend to be open to interpretation.

    If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed with the FA its that there is no consistency

    Not sure why Obertan was kept around, maybe Kinnear saw something in him Pardew backed him up. Keeping Jonas around until Sammy showed that he can do a job at least make sense.

    yes Sammy Jonas thing makes sence
    but Kinnear still should have cleared out gosling obatan
    marveax and maybe some of the elder youngsters

    those 2 prob yeah barton as a player not the side show
    always liked Enrique and I think he has improved at Liverpool goin forward he very good all round left back now
    but for what ever reason as soon as a player wants out I don’t want them back.

    I agree, whenever a player has left that is the end of it for me. Barton didn’t want to leave though, neither did Carroll – I’d have big Andy back too – so on that basis I’d have both back.

    Enrique, even though he wanted to leave, he was right to leave because he knew the club had no ambition. Same goes for Cabaye and Demba Ba – even though he is getting no playing time.

    most of the time I agree and respect why most of them wanna go so I don’t blame i do chuckle at the like of enzogbia who claim there of to better places

    feel sorry for big andy the end of his Liverpool career in the final and there last few matches that season he was the only one trying but rogers couldn’t see past the oofball he gets labelled with i think he is better than that
    but rogers was never gonna give him a fair crack shame he is to much money for us to take him back

    he still like the night life and the ladies and there was a rumour floating round that his injury was taking longer cos he was in rehab but i don’t think he has gotton that bad

    Shola and Obertan was the big ones though since at least we let the other ones go on eventually loan except Amalfitano.

    If we would have signed another creative player rather than putting our faith in Marvs hands and got a another striker like De Jong. Let say Lukakku on loan and signed up Cabella.

    knowin a player was leaving and not replacing him is stupid more so when it turns out we had 10mill profit sat there
    marveax and benny nothing against either of them but if the manager aint goin to use them for what ever reason i don’t see the point in them staying

    and as pards will be here for a while yet we might as well give him players more suited to him,

    Ever since drama queen Jeff Stelling went apoplectic on Sky, finding him guilty on all charges, Pards’ cards have been marked. The newshounds will be baying for blood and ex-player pundits who have made such a fuss will choke on their pronouncements. What will become of football if the book isn’t thrown, as Gypsy Jeff has foreseen? What indeed!
    Gosling’s giving 2 to 1 Pards gets a stadium ban….

    On a different subject you know what irks me. When Remy starts scoring everyone says Newcastle will have to pay more than they originally thought. When someone else wants him they say he has an 8 million release clause they will all activate. Why??

    I think it’s because nobody really know for sure, I mean c’mon the press make things up as they go along. AP said earlier in Jan or Feb, ” we have the money set aside for Remy”. So really it will be up to the player to choose his destination. Hopefully he will stay with us realising that here he will get pitch time, and adulation from the fans.

    I don’t think the clause exists. If it did, he would have been signed last summer imo.

    That’s all QPR paid. Why would they put that clause in? Perhaps it was dependent on relegation, but again, he would have been snapped up at just £8mil

    JFK wouldn’t have negotiated on either. That’s almost certain.

    Bringing back lovenkrands and best would surely be a step back mate do you not think. Understand in the same class as shola, but hes gone in the summer and hopefully better players than listed are to come in

    Newcastle had an agreement to buy Remy for 8 million as part of the loan agreement although a mate told me it expired at end of Jan transfer window
    So guess QPR will try for at least 12 million at end of season

    I think the clause for Remy exists for Newcastle as part of the loan deal, But there are that many stories floating about all claiming to be ITK and therefore correct that untill a deal is actually done in the summer we can only speculate.

    Judging by Remy’s past reactions towards the fans, and what he has been saying about the club, his team mates and the fans over the last month, maybe just maybe, he is giving some thought to making his time on Tyneside permanent. We can only hope, and during these last games we should cheer him on and show him what he will be missing if he leaves.

    As for AP today, I would like to see a 4 or 5 match touchline ban and maybe up to £40,000 fine, anything more than that and I think the FA should bring Meyler in and punish him to for laying his hands on the opposition manager. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but when you only punish one of them, then that is not justice either.

    Oh dear, oh dear…… all this Remy talk is beyond belief! Well here goes and maybe people will FINALLY get it into their heads…..

    1. Remy is NOT our player so once his loan spell ends, there is NOWT we can do sign him.
    2. Remy openly wants to go to a top European side in or around Champions League and is good enough.
    3. NUFC WILL NOT pay his wages.
    4. Get-out clauses or size of fee is irrelevant – Remy does not want a club with no ambition that will struggle to maintain mid-table mediocrity under our current ownership & management.
    5. Remy is too good for us and is a cert to go to World Cup. Cue a stream of more clubs entering the running to sign him.
    6. Remy – thank you for your goals but if you don’t want to sign for us then jog-on

    Your OPINION is noted, however if you don’t mine I would like to keep my own opinion in my head. Nothing is ever certain in football, and we are not privy to what goes on behind the scenes.

    It may well be as you say that Remy wants a champions league team, who wouldn’t but to say he is to good for us is stretching it a bit, we are a very good and capable side when at our best, we have very good players and are doing reasonably well this season when the teams above us are all flying high.

    Don’t put us down without reason, we still have 30 points to play for and if we got half of them we would finish on 58 points for the season, not a bad hall in my opinion.

    I agree the FA aren’t generally for for purpose or consistent on any level, but in pardew’s case surely any punishment would be for cumulative misdemeanours not the meyler case taken in isolation.

    I wonder if pardew is stadium banned whether carver would be more attacking and do things like not disrupt the Willo MYM partnership.

    But would it not still be Pardrew who pics the team and sets out the game plan for Carver to follow before hand. Carver may be able to choose the subs he puts on, but AP may give him his instructions on that too.

    I would like to see what will happen here. Might be a good change if Carver is in charge of selection though.
