    Mate, read Ross Worner's page and you'll forget all about Owen.

    Heh, no further action for mcmanananananamaman, hiding behind the old 'one idiot official saw it and did nothing, so up yours' defence.

    Despite a precedent for completely ignoring that.

    Did they take into account that he's not that sort of player? Martinez even attested to that

    Something tells me that the outcome of all this would have been very different if one of the top six were involved.

    I would like to know which official saw it and thought it wasnt that bad.

    To continue to bang a drum, this is why goal line technology is the wrong ball to chase. We need to make refs better not give them something to hide behind. Its absolutely fucking ludicrous that not only someone saw it, but they thought it wasnt worth a card.

    That is absolutely insane. Not a fan of Pardew, but I hope he goes absolutely nuts. There's precedent everywhere, the FA/PL seem to be the ones hiding behind it the most. And we don't even have to worry about upsetting FIFA for any WC bid.

    Its the same principle as the nani red. Regardless of intent, he went in carelessly studs up, so should get fucked for it.

    I am shocked at the shitness of the FA on this one, if ever a retrospective ban was justified, surely it was now.

    Mental, truly mental.

    I think some of the 'rah rah ban for 12 games rah rah' was a bit much, but yes, it's a red and a three game ban. FA have made exceptions to their stupid rules before and am surprised they didn't this time.

    Unbelievable that there's no ban. I knew Whelan was friends with the higher ups, but I didn't realise he was the Don.

    At least we know that sort of challenge isn't a foul now.

    They should take retrospective action against the official who saw it then. These incompetent fuckers are just untouchable.

    Didnt Wheelan get his leg smashed in a bad tackle, leading to his retirement? You would have thought he'd take a bit of a firmer stance on it.

    As I say, goal line technology is literally the least of the things that is needed to fix football.

    Wow, that's staggeringly misguided by the FA. If I was Newcastle I would seriously consider some form of legal action. Presumably the job of the referee is as much to protect the players as anything else, the referees answer to the FA and so the FA have allowed their employee to make a bad decision, the person who saw the challenge and did nothing about it should at least have some kind of fine/demotion as he's clearly not able to correctly assess the game.

    It's times like this I miss Shepard being in charge (believe me, it doesn't happen often). Big mouth, conman that he was, he'd get the rules changed and a few million compensation.

    Not sure Ashley will want the hassle.

    Indeed, I can't see it happening, there'll be a bit of media focus and some strong words from both camps but it'll come to nothing and it'll be forgotten about by the summer.

    Lol. The FA have just charged newcastles assistant manager with misconduct for having a go at mcmananamaman. Utter clowns.

    Pfft. So much for the 'Respect' campaign. I'm sure respect is something you earn and in the case of officals, they do themselves no good at all.

    I doubt many of the Toon players will have much respect for Halsey or his muppet linesmen after this shambles.

    If McMananaman cant be charged, the idiot who saw the incident and decided it wasn't worthy of even a free kick deserves sacking for gross ineptitude.

    Typical FA fools.
