Newcastle And Pardew’s Subsequent Actions Impressed FA Commission


Alan Pardew was really stupid when he head-butted David Meyler at the Hull City game over two weeks ago, and he’s fully admitted that, but after the game it seems he did almost everything right, and so did Newcastle United, and together their actions meant that Alan got a reduced sentence from what the independent commission were going to give the Newcastle manager – before the personal hearing took place earlier this month.

Alan Pardew – dumb to do what he did
But appropriate actions after the event saved him


Pardew finally received a seven-game ban, a three-game stadium ban followed by a four game touchline ban – but initially the commission was going to give him a five game stadium ban.

And that’s what former Blackpool manager Paul Ince received last September, after he had confronted the fourth official in the tunnel after the game  at Bournemouth, and used filthy language, and that was after Paul had already been sent to the stands during the game.

The FA independent commission pointed to 10 points that helped Alan Pardew’s case and persuaded them to reduce the sentence.

The 10 points are as follows:

  1. He clearly accepted responsibility for his actions on the day
  2. He made a full apology directly after the game
  3. In his opinion did not instigate the incident
  4. The incident took place against a background of an important fixture
  5. He meant no physical harm to the player and there was no attempts to use force (however the video shows Mr Pardew was not pushed over as both he and counsel suggested at the hearing and that he did in fact only step back one or two paces following the push to his chest and then he moved some 5 or 6 paces to confront the player
  6. He was fined £100,000 by his club the same day and was warned by the club
  7. He is seeking to address his behavior by taking an executive leadership and management program with the LMA
  8. He has shown remorse
  9. He is supported by the club
  10. He sent a personal letter of apology to the manager of Hull City FC

So it seems that Alan Pardew and Newcastle United did everything right after Alan’s altercation – but the seven game ban will still cost Newcastle some points in the league – and of course bottom of the league Fulham beat us on Saturday, in what was Alan’s first game of an initial  three game stadium ban.

Alan Pardew simply must get help an follow through on what he said he will do, so that if he is going to stay on the touchline at games, he can control himself.

But quite honestly we’d like to see him sitting in the stands – because in the heat of the moment – as we’ve seen before – anything can happen and a similar altercation could happen again.

And if something like at Hull does happen again, then Alan Pardew will be in really serious trouble, and for one thing he would be fired as Newcastle manager – and he must know that now.

Comments welcome.

    same action required as was against pards ? or is that just our club that has to have consequences ? also there was that city defender who almost kicked his way through the dressing room wall ! bet again nothing is done.

    Pardew is leading a charmed life most clubs would’ve sacked him long ago just for his brand of football never mind the fact that the geezer is a thug as well.

    We spend more time talking about pards than the team Ashley should just get shot of him and start again with a new management team who know what they are doing and bring a load of good players in as well.

    There was a story floating around earlier -Sky story -that Percys ban had been reduced – the story now seems to have disappeared. Story said the ban was now only a 3 match stadium ban. looks possibly like some wally at Sky has misread todays release of the FA reasonings about the ban.
    Sky page reporting this has now disappeared.

    Mister Tuff,
    Good afternoon, the whole thing was blown out of proportion not helped by commentators trying to justify their living by having something to say on the matter, I saw Robbie Savage on some celebrity quiz once, I don’t remember which one, it was plain embarrassing, so how the BBC see him fit to pass sensible comment I don’t know, the FA are a spineless bunch of cretins all probably in the job through the Free Masons, as Pards isn’t great on the telly guess where he could end up when he’s done his dirty work here :O

    Isn’t it about time we stop this?

    Pardew has been an absolute embarrassment and got what he deserved – there are not one after us, or the North East for that matter. Yes, Robbie Savage is an idiot, but that could be said about so many others!

    Move on!

    jail – afternoon – agreed that Lily Savage is a complete tool. He should have stuck to the dancing programme he was on -he was crap at that but even worse as a football pundit.
    I still cannot see how Joe Hart has escaped further action by the FA -his demeanour was much more aggressive than Percys’ -I think that they are really duplicitous in their actions which is no good to anybody. They need to be constant in their punishments -unfortunately we’ve all seen that they make some daft judgements -punish some -let others off. No the wonder the on pitch behaviour is getting poorer as time goes by.

    wow its dead in here,

    whats everyones view on what carver said, I found very good, it confirmed that we have a fat greedy Bsteward at the top , a puppet under him, and a puppet under him,

    the gaffa was at the hotel like, and ehh, he had a tactical couch with him, stoney was on the bench like ,with another tactical coach, I just stud there wait for a message like, they where on the phone a few times, then at the end of the game a got an SMS telling is what to say ti ya, the game hinged on that tackle like, LDJ got clattered and they went up and scored at the other end,
    shame like, us had 60% possession , that should be anuff to win any game, so the gaffa tells is anyway,

    CISSE is to blame, that’s the SMS the gaffa just sent is , in case yaa wondering,

    complete toooools

    If you don’t like the blog then leave. You’re very often negative towards this blog so I’m beginning to think you have an agenda with it.
    Of course we can’t like all the posts and we are of course tired of some topics, but most on this blog are at least decent enough to keep it to them selves.

    I’m very happy with this blog. It keeps us united, and especially those of us that doesn’t live in Newcastle.

    Wish we’d play Gouffran up top. He’s a striker and proved he can score goals for us. Notice how Carver said our striking options are Remy, Cisse, strolla, and Armstrong…… I just don’t get it.

    So with Remy out – play Armstrong – simple as. I still like Cisse but it’s growing a little thin now. He still gets into good positions without getting the ball and has been subjected to some brilliant saves. Way too early to judge LDJ. strolla….. no comment.

    Buckluck,
    In all fairness it does get a bit tired on here and the time between posts is increasing all the time and I don’t think it’s linked to rising employment figures, there’s little to cheer about atm and things aren’t going to change in a hurry, due to slashed prices there is yet another sell out on Saturday, we can’t help ourselves from staying away and Mikey knows this.

    Alan has had a lot of experience sucking up to Ashley so he knew what to do to get his punishment reduced. He’s fairly pathetic but in a horrible position working for Ashley. If he had any plums he would resign but he probably doesn’t have any self respect left by now.

    What is Ashley’s next big move? That is an interesting question indeed. Hire a new DoF? Once we finish the season in 9th or 10th what does he do to consolidate that position for next season? Anything at all? How much money does he free up for player purchases? Has a got 10 quid to spare? We’ll know in a few months mates.

    Splendid lads! That’s more like it. Surely we need a explosive young winger for next season. Somebody with pace and the ability to cross a ball. I really think Benny will leave as soon as he can come the summer. What kind of striker will we get? Somebody young and cheap perhaps? And the replacement for Cabaye now that Grenier’s price is skyrocketing? Poor old Mike SmallBerries. Where will the cheap new players come from now?

    That is correct guv mate. His dominatrix mainly deals with the back side. He prefers to start with a nice whipping of the buttocks while wearing his favourite nipple clamps. Mike SmallBerries really knows how to live.
