Pardew Escapes FA Fine

Charlton manager Alan Pardew has escaped an FA Improper conduct charge after his over-enthusiastic celebration during West Ham's 1-0 win over Arsenal.

The xeonaphobic manager thought it would be ok for him to get in Arsene's face when Marlon Harewood scored a late winner at Upton Park. Arsene disagreed and shoved Pardew before refusing to shake the then West Ham manager's hand. Wenger was fined £10,000 for his troubles.

The FA though thought that Charlton's 4-0 demolition at the hands of Arsenal was punishment enough.

Apparently Pardew could be heard singing 'Forever blowing bubbles' and chanting 'Engerland, Engerland, Engerland' as he left Soho square.

Absolute rubbish. Both managers deserved the same punishment. I bet Morgan gets away with it as well.

davecook, wenger is a bad loser because he is driven to be a winner. Pardew, and your mob, on the other hand, have taken the handbrake off your skoda outfit and are ambling down the hill towards relegation, because they are losers. »»Arsene Knows««

Dave, at least attempt to practice some kind of contrition, instead of just trying to wind people up in a depserate bid to get hits on your rather unpopular site. Both managers behaved badly and both deserved punishment, it makes no sense that Wenger accepts his punishment yet Pardew whinges and gets away with it.

ur making yourself look very foolish making comments like 'go back to france' thats stepping over the line of football banter. very ignorant ramblings. his home is the EU with freedom of movement and all that, I actually used to like Charlton but your doing a great job of helping me feel a bit better when they get relegated.

He must be feeling mixed emotions at the moment, he got one over on Arsene by avoiding punishment for his celebration but 'the foreigners' have got not one over on him, not two but three. Love it!

Don't know why a Charlton fan would get defensive about this anyway...Pardew wasn't even with the Addicks at the time of this incident, he was managing another relegation-bound club. Anyway it hardly matters, I just hope Wenger is extended the same courtesy and beats the ridiculous charge he got from the Portsmouth match.

Gooners - LD enlightened me yesterday that Pardew is a bit of a Plonker, but are you really surprised he escaped punishment? Wenger was the one making all the physical gestures so its obvious that the FA would arrive at this outcome. Wenger is also a serial offender

Interestingly, the F.A did not punish him on the grounds that there was 'no evidence against him.' Which suggests that the case bought against him was due to comments he made. Which I happen to know were 'Made in England.'

I could n't give a flying ***** what punishment he gets. His retribution will be delivered in May when the slide to obscurity starts for the Xenephobic cretin.

Come off it BY, he was in Wenger's face and it was not by chance that he ended up there, he went to go over then turned around then went back to Wenger. He's a *****-taker and I look foward to the racist bast**d getting the boto at Charlton.

Indeed Fran, infact, I got kicked out of the West Ham home game last season for giving a gobby fan a clip on his bisciut tin.

I see Charlton have asked The FA to drop Sankofa's ban back down to one match. Bet you don't like that idea.
