    The view of the Independent’s Ian Herbert:

    “Carver’s extraordinary, premediated attack on a 20-year-old – the most appalling conduct of the day – prompted a series of unsavoury challenges by the Newcastle team: Gutierrez on Shaun Maloney, James Perch on Beausejour and substitute Shola Ameobi on Paul Scharner…”

    Aye Toon, they showed it from Halsey’s point of view and at the moment it happened, M’Biwa was right in front of him running past when it happened. I’ve subsequently seen that the linesmen didn’t really have the same excuse and should have seen it. On the other hand, Halsey didn’t seem to consult with them though.

    Toon, I think that was the Wigan Youth team coach who wanted to have a barney with Carver for wanting to have a barney with McManaman. He was the other one who was sent up to the naughty step.

    That has got to be the answer.Other sports have moved on.The powers that be in football are locked in the past and are too bloody lazy to move on.The excuse most used that it would disrupt the game.Justice could have been served in half the time it took to get the stretcher to Haidara and the handball before they had finished their celebrations.It works in rugby but nothing will happen till enough supporters of all clubs DEMAND IT!

    avatar GS says:

    It is time to go back to calling them linesmen. All they do is decide who last kicked the ball out and who is offside – usually they will flag if the last man is level. They are certainly not “Assistant Referees” as was proved at least twice yesterday.

  32. 32
    avatar GS says:

    It looks like Debuchy isn’t that bad from what Pardew said. Luckily we have 2 weeks to Citeh so hopefully he and Cabaye will be fit. We also have Simpson as cover.

    I don’t understand how there is no news at all on Haidara. He went to hospital, I am sure they took x-rays and would know if there was a break or not.

    Isn’t Halsey too flabby to be a Ref? He looks unfit and I wonder if he gets around the pitch as much as other Refs. He certainly needs his eyesight checked. He let a lot of crunching tackles go yesterday, from our players as well as Wigans.

    Different games, but we benefitted from a missed handball call on Demba Ba earlier in the season. The one yesterday was easier to spot though.

  33. 33
    avatar Grumpy Old-Toon says:

    OK Halsey may not have seen the actuall point of contact, but he must have seen the way he went into the tackle and even allowing for the possibilty of some play acting, the there must have been stud marks and the eventual realisation that the player was badly hurt. Putting 2and 2 together isn’t rocket science. Poll is correct, doesn’t help Haidara though, has to be out for rest of season at least.

    I thought Carver was going to lump Pardew when he tried to intervene in the confrontation. My missus asked why they were fighting until I explained what was going on.

    I was trying to be diplomatic about this challenge, but Dave Whelans comments have angered me. While I dont think the lad meant it, he clearly didnt win the ball, pictures and even video replays show this. This needs dealt with, Colos breaking on Demba Bas nose, Crouches overhead kick, these were all deemed dangerous, hows this any different?

    Well it’s funny you should mention Fabricio Coloccini and Demba Ba Pete, as the reaction of most Toon fans online to that one was to laugh, with some actually praising Coloccini for kicking him in the face and suggesting that he “deserved” it in some way.

    Well I can tell you the result now Toon, a large majority of people would vote like you, and would use similar justifications too. I daresay it would be the same at most other clubs too.

    Pete, I do see your point and I agree with you, except for the part where you say:

    “Dave Whelan you are a disgrace, the sooner your joke of a club depart thePrem the better, Martinez deserves a better club than your shower.”

    If you are suggesting that clubs deserve to be relegated because they have disgraceful owners, we’d be knacked if that ever happened! :-)

    Also, Martinez’s attempts to justify the incident were just as pathetic as Whelan’s and his micro expressions when he says he didn’t see the incident tend to suggest that he was lying.

    avatar GS says:

    It is part politics when a manager says he didn’t see the incident. The Refs report is not in yet and they don’t want to say anything that might make the FA review what happened or give them ammunition for a ban.

    They say this and “he’s not that sort of player”. It is like they are reading from a script. In effect they are repeating a script because even after a review a player has never had a long ban – even K*nt Keane, who was that sort of player.

    I think we can all make our own minds about whether it was intentional or not. My 2 cents is he went in too high, but was trying to get the ball. He knew what he was doing when he followed through and knew he would hurt Haidara.

    “However it is Dave Whelans defence of it as a clean tackle that has angered me and which is my point”

    It’s worse than that because he’s also insisting that the ref and the linesman saw the tackle. The daft old devil’s actually suggesting that the officials actively made the decision that there was no foul.

    “The referee was 15 yards from the tackle. I don’t think his view was blocked. He had a clear view. I had a clear view in the stands.

    “He has gone for the ball and has won the ball and the referee was only 10 yards away and didn’t even give a free-kick and there is a lot to be said for that.”

    Yes or no is too simplistic Toon, so neither.

    I think he probably did go for the ball originally, however he was over the ball (which is bad), he did have both feet off the ground for some of the time (which is bad) and it’s possible (but debateable) that he could have pulled out sooner. One thing I am sure about is that he should have been sent off and banned for three games for it IF the referee had seen it, and the FA should ban him for three games if he hadn’t. Also, if Halsey’s report indicates that he did see it, or he tells the FA he saw it and that his view wasn’t obscured by M’Biwa, then he shouldn’t be a Premiership referee.

    i hav’nt read all the posts but the ones i did read had some good points.
    even if Halseys veiw was blocked by Mbiwa,it was’nt blocked for more than a second.he also should ov knew by Haidaras reaction.
    i was one ov the fans who was happy about Colo feeling Ba’s nose with his boot,but come on ffs theres fouls n there’s fouls like that little scroat Mcmanaman’s,career threating tackles.you just cant compare the two.
    if that was Tiote,would that cnut Whealan be saying he won it ‘as clean as a whistle’ with say Maloney or that coward who left Haidara in agony.even more so when he had to leave the pitch in the 1960 FAcup final?..i kna what would be coming out his mouth n it would’nt be ‘as clean as a whistle’

    with the amount ov money been invested in football surely it is time for change with an offical watching the tv screens.it would’nt take up to much time thats for sure,as they do get alot right in the first place.but theres just far to much cash involved that terrible missed decisions cast cost clubs millions.
    but the main thing is Haidara,i wish him well n hope its not as bad as we are all fearing.hope to see him playing again soon as he does look a good prospect.

    Hey bud, this dude is amazed that this blog has deteriorated to a condition that you are actually dealing with half wits, in order to keep going, sorry.

    The blog has unfortunately deteriorated into a hopeless mess.
    I kinda feel sorry about it because it began as an interesting blog and feel no pleasure at it’s demise.
    I suppose the original interest by some aware contributers, just wained, for no apparent reason.

    Who knows, Belfast? He moves in a mysterious way.

    What worried me more regarding Ashley and transfers was what Pardew said about the Cisse deal. He should have been £12 million+, they held out for several months, eventually getting his price down to £7.5 million rising to £9 million, yet Pardew said he still needed constant reassurance that he was getting “value” before they eventually bought him. Having written that they did pay something like the correct fees for Anita and Yanga M’Biwa when they had to since that time.

    “No action against McManaman – source is BBC sport website”

    Aye, I just saw that Canada. The FA Statement was on the goal.com site, and read as follows:

    “Following consultation with the game’s stakeholders (the Premier League, the Football League, the Professional Footballers’ Association, the League Managers’ Association, Professional Game Match Officials Limited and the National Game) in the summer, it was agreed that retrospective action should only be taken in respect of incidents which have not been seen by the match officials.

    “Where one of the officials has seen a coming together of players, no retrospective action should be taken, regardless of whether he or she witnessed the full or particular nature of the challenge. This is to avoid the re-refereeing of incidents.

    “In the case of McManaman, it has been confirmed that at least one of the match officials saw the coming together, though not the full extent of the challenge. In these circumstances retrospective action cannot be taken.

    “The principal objective behind the not seen policy is to address off the ball incidents where match officials are unlikely to be in a position to witness misconduct.”

    “same old FA..heeds up there arses..shocking decision.”

    Jack, looking at the statement, it seems to be the fault of the match officials. The FA can’t do anything if one of them saw the incident but stood by and did nothing.

    Worky, I said yesterday they should be referred to as linesmen again. They never make any hard decisions (except often wrong offside calls) and the 4th official is just there to be yelled at by Ferguson.

    Two sides Wigan and the match officials on one side New castle United on the other Wigan go home with 3pts given to them by incompetent officials.The officials go home to dinner with no come back.Newcastle go home cheated out of 2pts maybe 3 a player in hospital in a whole load of pain not knowing when if ever he will play again.These are simple truths the FA deserve all the anger that comes their way.There again I don’t hold my breath.

    Does Lee Ryder have former journeyman footballer and champion of stating the bleeding obvious Mick Quinn on speed dial. Ryder is so useless that he cant even make up his own copy and relies on Quinn for an interview (probably down the pub).

    it’s halsey’s fault because he done nothing at the time, so retrospective action cannot be taken.
    imo this rule is up there with, is a player active or not active, etc,etc,etc……..
    i think they are called the F.A for a reason, infact they should put sweet in front of it.

    So if someone throws a banana at Gareth Bale the police and club can look into it and ban the fan for life. If McManaman tries to maim Haidara on live TV the FA cannot take any action because of their own contrived and stupid rules?

    Joe – the FA didn’t proceed because Halsey saw the incident (which he didn’t), they didn’t proceed because of the “linesman” who saw it but ignored it. Of course, the retrospective 3 match on Cabaye at Brighton last season was totally different because he plays for us and so is fair game.

    Wigan for the drop now. Before the match, I was torn about the result because it would have pulled Sunderland that much closer to the relegation zone. Now, I want Wigan relegated.

    not saying this will be the definate outcome, but it wouldn’t suprise me, if we now find out that haidara’s injury, isn’t as bad as first thought.
    although it was a shocking tackle, you have to keep in mind, what a whinging excuse merchant of a manager, alan pardew is.
    he has done what he always does, and has been quick to use another situation to steer away from the fact, he cannot manage his own crap into the pan, without someone doing it for him.

    “Jack, looking at the statement, it seems to be the fault of the match officials. The FA can’t do anything if one of them saw the incident but stood by and did nothing.”

    Exactly. That’s all this decision can mean. One of the officials claims to have seen the tackle but thought it wasn’t even worth a free kick. I wonder if the promised apologies from the player and club will still be forthcoming, or if that’ll now be downgraded to sheepish shrugs.

    Regardless of this crappy decision, the rest of the country saw what happened on MOTD and it’ll just reinforce the belief people already have that the match officials in this country are an embarrassment.

    I’m almost angrier now than after the tackle! The referee apologized to Pardew saying “he hadn’t seen it” But was at that stage aware one of his linesmen had and had said nothing!! the FA are a disgrace!!
    Well done Saylor, try not to avoid injury!!

    petetoon, the incident was acknowledged, so you cannot act upon it, retrospective.
    i probably used the wrong word by saying halsey, and should have said the whole of the officials on duty.

    “Joe – the FA didn’t proceed because Halsey saw the incident”

    Possibly Pete, but it didnt say it was Halsey who saw the incident, just “at least one of the match officials.”

    Anyway, I’ve just knocked up a piece about it with the FA ruling and Llambias’ response to it.
