Sir Alex Gets Away With It!

Sir Alex Gets Away With It!

When the teams came out for the second half, against Newcastle, it`s fair to say that Sir Alex Ferguson was well wound up.

Following the officials decision to allow the Evans own goal, Sir Alex gave the officials both barrels leaving them in no doubt that he thought they`d made a right cock-up of it.

Many expected Sir Alex, following his rant, to be summoned by the Football Association and probably charged.

Well to many people`s surprise that hasn`t been the case. Sir Alex appears to have got off Scott-free. However, it seems that Roberto Mancini, over at Manchester City, hasn`t been so lucky with the Italian copping for a charge for doing far less than Sir Alex, now that should get the noisy-neighbours moaning!

Well he normally doesn't get away with it so this is very strange. Not sure what Pardew is on about either, yeah Fergie was out of line but then again when Newcastles 2nd goal was going to be rightfully ruled out for offside he was going ballistic at the officials and should consider himself lucky also.

He got away with his comments about Oliver t'other day too Famous.

Most punished manager in the premier league Bluedub. Maybe he should just do a 'Arry Redknapp and make an ultimatum of "you charge me and I won't do interviews anymore" just to ensure he gets away with it all the time.

There's a good reason why he's the most charged Famous, as you well know.
28/12/2012 19:19:00
To be perfectly honest Bluedub that wasn't a direct aim at you but anyone viewing who felt like saying something stupid like bias, corruption, fear or half the other drivel the brainless hordes come out with and we're regularly exposed to. Think Wenger said it best when he said why should anyone fear him?

The ref reported that Fergie wasn't abusive towards him and in fairness his reaction was no worse than Pardew's when he thought the goal that should've been disallowed was initially disallowed. Not that it makes it right just irks me how Pardew is on about how Fergie should be banned when he's done the same. Also irks me how nothing is said about Pardew's reaction, again I suppose it's along the lines of being one of the most popular sport franchises across the world that your behaviour is going to be pointed out moreso than others.

Well said Famous. Nothing more to add
