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.
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
He seemed reasonable to me least nobody got pushe
Damn you missing d
how can the fa punish him...when most of the board official is in his pocket...when david gill is the vice chairman of fa. and that itself is a big can manu will get punished...and who will punish them...shame on fa and manure for corrupting the beautiful game...disgarace shame etc etc there are lot of words that can be associated with your club..
There's one word that suits you perfectly shlok - moron. Keep spouting the same brainless drivel and all you ever will be seen as is a moron. Fergie is the most punished manager in the premier league and has served the longest sideline suspension in the premier league but don't let the facts ruin an ignorant, hysterical and poorly formulated opinion.
Ooh, the intellect of TheFamousNo2 shines out in all its brown glory. The Govan gumchewing embarrassment 'is the most punished manager in the premier league and has served the longest sideline suspension in the premier league', which precludes critics from suggesting he got away with his latest disgraceful and typically unsportsmanlike behaviour. Brilliant. So if you are a congenital ****, just invoke previous, and requisite punishment, and hey presto, anything new doesn't count, no matter how badly you've behaved, and rest assured, an obsequious FA will turn a blind eye, and mouth breathing fans who adopt their IQ as part of their blogging name will display their ignorance in vain support.
Thanks for the insightful post rubberjohnny (i can manipulate usernames too its not hard nor clever you condescending, insufferable****) but maybe you should take your head out of your arse for a second to see my post wasn't saying fergie is the most punished manager and as such should get away with it but a response to the ridiculous allegations that fergie has the fa in his pocket, are scared of him or half the other bull fans frothing from the mouth like yourself come out with with loving regularity. Perhaps before being so hasty to write a mouth breathing fan-esque response that you're so critical of you should read all my comments. If you had, though I don't expect someone who insults others IQ whilst being ignorant of their own minute IQ evident through their inability to read all the comments (perhaps from not knowing how to scroll up?) before formulating a response, you'd realise that I have conceded that whilst fergie wasn't abusive towards the ref (as said in his report) it doesn't make it right. Perhaps you should take a step back from insulting others intelligence eh rubber? You might make yourself look like an uninformed douche eh?
What's laughable is for all your IQ the one time you write an article for vitalspurs half the responses are asking what the flying feck you're going on about because they can't understand you. That's brown glory at its finest ;)
Glad you're a fan of my stuff. Great innit? P'raps it doesn't go over your head then, unlike the poor saps who have to advertise their inability to think thanks to Tony B. Liar's educashun policy. As for the insults, don't come over all holier than thou when you dish out the moron tag so readily. Happy Noo Year.
Would never do it hastily johnny, the guy you're defending is one of those mouth breathing fans, you know, one of those that say if Chelsea can't beat united at old Trafford he wants to see Chelsea break RVP's and Hernandez's legs, the ones you despise. Not one to critique others intelligence without good reason as I know I'm no Albert Einstein myself but again had you read all my posts and understood the full reason for me insulting shlok you wouldn't have felt so compelled to defend him. Happy new year :)
