    I think they will look back at his previous touch line incidents and come down hard on him.

    Maybe delaying it has helped Pards cause it’s less in the spotlight now than it was last week.

    Just seen the incident umpteen times this morning on the news.
    Can anyone tell me how Meyler got away with only a booking.
    not just did he instigate the incident but tried to get to Pardew until Webb stepped in and he pushed Webb (touching a official) to try and get to Pardew count for nowt.

    Yes Pardew still deserves a long ban

    Seems to me that if you instigate a incident same as what happened to Remy you get away with nothing – yet you retalliate you get a ban

    See what you’ve done pardew. Instead of fighting to play in FA cup and league cup so we could look forward to mid week games rather then having to wait for weeks for a PL games we are subjected to ed’s numerous repeated and made up news articles.
    Stop killing your blog ed

    It makes you think that the FA have an hidden agenda where Newcastle are concerned, We always seem to get punished in incidents where provocation is blatantly ignored.

    And when a serious tackle almost cost Haiadara his career nothing was done to the Wigan player.

    Pards definitely deserves a whopping punishment on the basis of his series of misdemeanours. Not this one alone, which makes me think of the Pytgon sketch: “he did a headbutt! He’s a witch! Burn him!!”

    But how a player can try to shove over a 52-year-old, besuited manager in his technical area, have nothing come his, way and even take the piss at his next match is beyond me. Bloody joke.

    That 89% isn’t so much support for AP as a sense of injustice.

    The FA are a bunch of idiots and crooks. Not because they’re punishing AP but because they’re ignoring what does matter.
