Pardew Proves He Is a Moron

Pardew Proves He Is a Moron

After last nights 4-0 thumping of Charlton, Alan Pardew has appealed the red card of Osei Sankofa by admitting the player fouled Robin van Persie.

An interesting approach.

The incident saw a deflected Cesc Fabregas shot cannon off the bar with Robin van Persie ready to pounce on an open goal with Carson stranded in no-man's land.

Sankofa pulled back RvP as he attempted to poke the ball into the vacant net resulting in a penalty and instant red card.

However, today Pardew attempted to call the decision into question by claiming Sankofa didn't 'pull him back too hard'.

'The decision against us was a triple whammy. He should have been given offside, two yards offside by the way.' Pardew said

'Secondly, he didn't pull him back too hard and the player went down quite dramatically; and then Osei getting sent off as well, that was a big blow for the team.'

Two points Alan mi old bean. Firstly, offside decisions sometimes go your way, sometimes they don't, see Henry's perfectly good goal disallowed IN THE SAME MATCH, and secondly, it doesn't matter how hard you pull someone back, if you pull them, it's a foul, so your appeal is destined to fail before it has even been heard. Nice one.

Somebody who eulogises so much about the benefits of Englishness should really master the language!

I wonder if this would stand up in court? Maybe if I clump Pardew one I can escape assault on the basis, "I didn't hit him hard."?

I'm going to attempt infidelity and tell my missus I didn't go in that far. I wonder how she'll react.

Pardews point is that the game should have been stopped for offside. If it had been we wouldn't have gone down to ten. I thought it was a penalty and a red card and i cant see us winning the appeal. I have to laugh at the hatred you guys have for Pardew sad really you should be having the banter with the man utds and the chelskis of this world. Maybe your light years away from them again. On this seasons showing id say thats the case. As for Pardew at least you can take a year out next season while were in the Championship. Good luck for the rest of the season.

The point is he admitted it was a foul, and that means a sending off. The panel will not be there to look at whether or not RVP was offside, just whether or not the sending off was correct. Which Pardew has helped in deciding. As the title says....Moron.

thanks dave, yes we are miles away from United and Chelsea since we are the only team to beat the former at OT and one of the rare ones to draw away (with JT in the side - and no, they are not a one man team) with the latter (without TH - yes we are a one man team). As for Pardew, he may have a valid point but somehow he forgot to mention the disallowed goal in the 2nd half. He seems that he has a curse on him - hopefully he'll take on the spurs job next. Good luck in the Championship next year.
