Fergie Banned Again

Sir Alex will not be present at the touchline during the games at West Ham and against Birmingham. He admitted the FA's charge of insulting Mark Clattenburg at the Bolton v United clash last month.

He was also fined 5,000 though I expect that does not rock him. However, I feel it a bit unjust, whatever he said.

Touchline bans are extremely rare nowadays. Pardew and Wenger got away with their hilarious brawling, the Frenchman was lucky again when he was only fined for calling the assistant a liar after this year's Carling Cup final. Yet our old Scot is banned again, like in 2003 when notorious United-hater Jeff Winter was in the centre of his rant.

Fergie did not request a personal hearing so judgment was made based on video footage and written statements. The Scotsman's reaction is unknown yet but it's certain he'll be unhappy...

One rule for him, one rule for Wenger. Or think about Jose, how many times he got away with snide comments about the referee?

Sir Alex Has Hardly Recieved Touchline Bans..Hes Got A Few More Seasons In Him..Still Produciing A World Class Club At Such A High Level. For What He Was Banned For I Belive Was Pretty Pathetic As Davies Basically Tried To Kick Evra Out Of The Game. So Sir Alex Should Have The Right To Stand By Hiis Players.
