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.
