Ferguson in Novel Response to Charge

Ferguson in Novel Response to Charge

Having picked up a second Football Association charge, not too long after completing a five game touchline ban, Sir Alex Ferguson has taken on an unusual stance.

Charged, ridiculously may we add, for making positive comments about Howard Webb, thereby contraving rule E3 which forbids any talk about referees ahead of games, Sir Alex has ignored the deadline imposed by the Football Association to answer the charge.

Instead he`s relying on a communication sent by the club to the Football Association headquarters, at Wembley, by the club, outlining his position in relation to the charges.

Subsequently the Football Association have issued a warning to Sir Alex stating it was only a minor infringement of a rule.

Much ado about nothing then!

Making a mountain out of a mole hill again I see and deflecting from doing their actual job. Why don't they concentrate more on introducing schemes to improve the footballing for our youngester e.g. by introducing football acadamies, to see more English players playing the Premier League or preventing footballing travesties like owners buying clubs with money they don't have and then passing the debt onto the club itself!

Jaysus-I can't believe how many slack-jaws pontificate on football, and like those embarrassing dunderheads on ubercommon shouter M'Call vehicle, £1m Pound Drop, like to let the world know of their IGNORANCE. Maybe explanations should be spoonfed to the terminally thick in small amounts, whether media morons or the sort who parrot their ridiculous enunciations. Let me explain. Are you all sitting comfortably? Right.....referees are impartial, are seen to be impartial and operate, rightly, under these strictures. that bit. Now... managers and players have to treat their arbiters in the same way. They cannot question their integrity. In the same way they cannot and should not give an opinion as to their competence, good or bad. Otherwise, it could be implied that those that they do not praise are deemed, in some way, of not equal standing with those mentioned. That may lead to partiality. This is why, correctly, managers and players should not express any opinion on referees, and may be censured for so doing. Not difficult when it is laid out Janet and John fashion, is it?
