'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Ferguson Hit with Five Game Ban!

Those words uttered on MUTV, about the performance of Martin Atkinson, in the fixture at Stamford Bridge, appear to have cost Sir Alex dearly.

News broke this afternoon that a Football Association tribunal had decided those remarks warranted a five game touchline ban.

The proposed ban starts on the 22nd March and will include our forthcoming FA Cup semi-final against those from the council side of the city!

That just might be the PL campaign down the toilet. Fergie was true in what he saying but the truth doesn't bode well with the FA or FIFA. This facade that the game is fine is pathetic to say the least and their arrogance to not even acknowledge it says it all really. Personally I feel the FA, once again, have felt compelled to flex their muscle as much as possible to try and break this media induced idea that they're Fergie's puppets. The ref was pathetic on the night for both teams, he got many numerous decisions wrong for both sides. I think this whole rule is joke as well, managers should be allowed to say what they think of decisions and how the ref performed within the parameters that accusation of bias and favouritism don't come into the equation. It's not disrespectful to have a conflict of opinion with that of a ref, heck if anything it might make the standard of refereeing improve.

Just heard it is a record length ban for the Premier League lol!

I feel as though he has been mad an example of, the record breaking ban says it all then really. I'm not defending Fergie I've previously said he shot us in the foot and that he crossed the line but the FA are being pathetic. I understand they've got to back the respect the ref campaign but the ban was hard going and OTT. Maybe Fergie should've threatened the FA like Redknapp, that seems effective.

Sorry, but do touchline bans actually make all that much difference? Surely all the tactics, etc. are imparted before the match, and the assistant manager can do any tweaking of the team that needs doing during the game? I just don't think it's that big a deal, although at least taggart won't be able to bully the officials from the stands.
