Good...BOTH deserve it. I'd like to see an official response from Wenger on this though.

That'll be a day's wages and a written note of apology then? Very out of character for AW.

Wenger has come close to touchline fights with Pardew, Jol and Ferguson! Hardly out of charachter, he's just a really REALLY bad loser!! Needs to grow up and learn to apologise!!

Bad loser? or VERY passionate manager....Sometimes emotions get out of hand when you care so much for something. People are already condemning Wenger before he's released an official statement....like what everyone did to Zisou before we all found out the crap Mater-nazi spouted at him to set him off. It's still no excuse to fly off the handle, but in the heat of battle, pushing certain buttons can set even the most mild mannered manager, coach, player or fan off the deep end. I'd really like to know what Pardew said to Wenger aside from the over-the-top celebration...I couldn't read lips. Just interested in knowing that's all...it doesn't change the fact that the reaction from both managers was inappropriate.

Who know's, if the penalties are harsh enough maybe even Jose will calm down a bit.

Wenger will only claim he didn't see the charge sheet!

Or that he didn't see Pardew's hand after the match!

Zidine deserved to be sent off. As a professional he should be above taunting and baiting unless its racist in nature and in that case it wasn't. Whilst certain actions in the heat of the moment occur, the lack of any contrition since is puzzling from Wenger. And you will occasionally get managers who will over react due to exuberance ... invading someone's personal space hardly warranted that reaction.

As I said elsewhere...would Pardew have done the same thing to Fergie ?....something tells me no...
