FA Issue Statement On Cisse And Evans Altercation


Papiss Cisse and Jonny Evans have both been charged by the FA  for their confrontation in the 38th minute of last night’s game at St. James’ Park.

Papiss Cisse and Jonny Evans last night

This is the statement the FA have just released:

“Newcastle United’s Papiss Cisse and Manchester United’s Jonny Evans have both been charged by the FA following their game on Wednesday 4 March 2015.” 

“The charges are in relation to an alleged breach of FA Rule E1[a] in that in or around the 38th minute of the game the two players spat at each other. The incidents were not seen by the match officials but caught on video. Both players have until 6pm on Friday 6 March 2015 to respond to the charge.”

“In Premier League matches, if an incident has not been seen by the match officials, a three-man panel of former elite referees will be asked by the FA to review the footage independently of each other.”

“They will then advise what, if any action, they believe the match referee should have taken had it been witnessed at the time. For an FA charge to follow, all three panel members must agree it is a sending-off offence. In this instance, the decision by the panel was unanimous in respect of both players.”

If found guilty of the offense, both players could receive a six man ban.

Cisse could get one match added to that, because he has already served a three-match ban for violent conduct this season, for elbowing Seamus Coleman in the Newcastle Everton game in late December.

There are only 10 games to play this season.

If Papiss Cisse is banned it will be interesting to find out how many matches Newcastle players have missed with injuries and suspensions this season.

That’s something Newcastle should find out and take measures to correct it for next season.

The run-in to this season is getting be as disastrous as it was last season.

If Cisse is banned then the chances of Newcastle finishing in the top ten must be extremely slim.

    Spitting has no place in the game….I know that. However I still find the FA to be totally useless.
    A lad from Wigan (Macmanam I think) got absolutely nothing for one of the worst fouls I ever saw against Haidara….
    The FA could do nothing then because the ref saw it….He did not see either player spit but could get a 7 match ban!

    I know it’s disgusting but compared to that tackle……

    I see you as a blog star. Who else would give us Derek at tea time. Not too sure about bodyguard mind, unlikely to save Dekka from a Glascow kiss .

    I do my best John.

    I hear Dekka isn’t going to attend the egm the coward that he is, but he’ll be at Ibrox while it’s taking place, probably hiding in a room somewhere.

    Wouldn’t it be great if they grabbed him by the scruf the neck and threw him out the fire exit ?

    I can give you some clarity lifeguard.

    Cisse accepts fa charge and is therefore banned for seven games.
    The end…

    He’s missed 10 games though suspension.

    If we where in a relegation dogfight this would probably have been the final nail in the coffin.

    Let’s look at the positives guys and girls.

    Given he’s going to miss most of the rest of the season, there is a good chance Cisse will keep his goals per minute ratio for this season.

    How can we have a striker problem when our striker is one of the most deadly in the league?

    That’s about all I’ve got right now.

    Belfast…You know i’m not one to get hung up on small details, but it says Llambias will attend Ibrox on the day of the meeting, but doesn’t specify whether he will be there during the meeting.

    Anyway, I’ll leave you and Jeff to battle it out.

    My moneys on the fool 😉

    But while they will be at Ibrox on the day of the meeting, Sky sources understand they will not attend the shareholder gathering to be held at the stadium in the south side of Glasgow after two London hotels refused to stage the meeting.
