Pardew Gets Seven Match Ban – Both Stadium And Touchline


Alan Pardew has been given a 7 match ban by the three-man FA commission this afternoon – the first three games are a stadium ban and the next four games are a touchline ban – and he also got a £60,000 fine – and that’s a very tough sentence – given what Pardew did – a very soft headbutt on Hull player David Meyler.

Pardew was already given a £100,000 fine by the club so that’s £160,000 in fines Alan has paid out.

Alan Pardew will be the stands for four games

This is the statement just issued by the FA:

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew will serve a seven-match suspension with immediate effect, subject to any appeal, after he admitted an FA misconduct charge.

An Independent Regulatory Commission today [Tuesday 11 March 2014] ruled the first three-matches imposed are a stadium ban with the remaining four a touchline ban.

Pardew was also fined £60,000 and warned as to his future conduct.

He was involved in an incident with a Hull City player in the 72nd minute of the fixture on 1 March 2014.

It seems to us that the immense media pressure has caused the FA to give Alan a major sentence, and we had through a five or six match touchline ban would have been about the right sentence.

And this is bad news for Newcastle and for the Newcastle manager, and it will mean that at least for the next three games John Carver will take over the media duties, and that will start tomorrow with the press conference for the match at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Comments welcome.

    It’s a small wonder he wasn’t fitted with a tag and made to clean the toilets as penance for his hair flick into the big Jesse meylers face.

    Bit of a strange decision to have 3 stadium and four touch line, why not just go 5 stadium?

    Oh well it’s done, move on and concentrate on pushing Manure and Everton all the way to the finish line

    A bit harsh that.

    But let’s see how Carver does.

    Reckon he’ll have any impact on the line-up?
    Or will we still see MYM dropped yet again for a guy who is desperate to leave the club?

    it will be difficult to get the quality players to come here, but apart from Spurs, Man U and possibly Everton ( not sure about their appeal ) who is in a better position ?, with all due respect Pardew gets hammered for the type of football we play, I don’t get where that comes from, on a good day we pass and move as well as the best of them, ignoring the headbutt Hull was a pleasure to watch, granted there were times before the Hull game where we were not as pretty, but with due respect again, Sammy was starting and the hopeless Marveaux was the back-up, so in fairness to Pardew we all agreed that we have a decent starting 11 with 1 or 2 decent back-ups, but we all agreed that strength in depth was always going to be the problem, that’s exactly how it panned out, but once we got 1 or 2 back we beat Villa and Hull, so why are we so harsh on Pardew, give the man a squad ffs, lets see what he can do

    Doubt Carver will have little to any effect
    He’s basically just a manakin on the touch line, Pardew will still take training, still pick the team, still have ways of getting messages to the bench, still have an impact on subs etc

    Probably be the case that Carver will be joining Pardew with that ban given his love of a punch up

    Don’t think Pardew’s absence will affect our play at all. I see no impact from having him on the sideline. The news about Remy isn’t exactly a surprise. He’s been saying it for months now. We will need a finisher or next season will be very difficult. Clean house in the summer. Sell Cisse, release Shola, sign De Jong but get him an excellent partner. All obvious to anyone except our owner I’m sure.

    Thankyou to Robbie Savage and BBC’s match of the day for this over the top Ban!!! Had he actually made contact with the player and caused injury I could understand but Meyler pushed Pardew out of the way first and yet gets no punishment??

    spoof,

    to be exact, to be “pardewed” is to take someone with talent, and make him worse… or not use him properly…

    thusly, alan pardewed himself… i dont know if i can say he “effed” himself, so i used that term instead, my apologies

    Does Santon start against Fulham? I would suspect not. What about Cisse. Hasn’t Pardew said he has to prove himself to the end of the season? How does he do that if he doesn’t play? And if he does play but is hopeless? It’s a real mess with him now.

    with all due respect, and I am a fan of Alan Pardew, he was way out of order, as big a fan of his as I am I do now have doubts as to whether he should remain in charge, if I saw my boss go toe to toe with an opponent as Pardew did would I listen to him when it comes to conduct ?, it could be difficult, a boss has got to be respected and respect can only ever be earned, how can we expect the players to respect Pardew after this ?, as I say I have always defended and believed that Pardew has done a great job for us, I still believe that, but I fear that his position may now be untenable, hope I’m wrong, but ?

    On the pardew ban issue, did anyone realistically expect anything less from the highly incapable F.A? I didn’t but what’s done is done although I bet blackley and catchy are both terribly upset about the whole affair 😉

    I’ve never seen a player go from world class to hopeless in 2 seasons before Cisse came along. I hope to never see it again with us. As for manly men supplies for Pards I’m afraid I’m at a loss for once Dok mate. There’s not much starting material there! 🙂

    ty for that, so has Cabaye, who was not an international when we signed him been Pardewed, was Demba Ba held back to go onto greater things being Pardewed, has Guthrie ever played as well as he did when he was being Pardewed, was Mike Williamson ever mentioned as a possible England centre half before he was Pardewed, or does this expression only exist for players such as Marveaux and Obertan who clearly never had the ability to succeed.

    What a pathetic expression !

    well its done now a little harsh thought a couple might have been suspended but he has been warned about future conduct in the past
    this is a nice victory for the media. maybe they could use there powers for good next and hound Ashley out of town.
    we play fullham next another 4 0 and maybe motd will give the performance and team the credit they deserve

    catchy in norway – previous thread

    ……. “a club with ambition, like sunderland”…..

    So you really have been a mackem troll all these years ?

    Given your low level of competence with the English language it shouldn’t really come as a really a surprise that you’re a closet Mackem.

    Pardew was never your real target was he ? . …it was everything NUFC. all along..

    What with wishing we would lose (every game til the end of the season) etc. etc., and now Sunderland are an ambitious team ? The only ambition the Scum have is to stay in the EPL right now.

    You’re not fit to scrape dog-c*ap off Pardew’s shoes let alone comment on this blog.

    AC… some on this blog want nothing more than to see us fail… sad, really, all i want is to see our club do well, and show a semblence of progress…

    g2… i thought it was manly of pards to headbutt the cretin who shoved him first… surely theres hope for him!!! 🙂

    spoof… sad expression, but at times true…

    for the record, ive no issue with alan padrew… though i wish hed learn better tactics, and play people in their postion… but id certainly give up a weekends worth of beer to get a glimpse at that notebook…. 🙂
