Will Mourinho Be Charged?

Will Mourinho Be Charged?

As Arsenal's early collapse meant the Gunners had the weekend off, I rose early on this Sunday morning, just in time for the kick off of the match between Chelsea and Spurs.

I watched with interest as the match turned out to actually be quite entertaining, the game ending in the familiar Spurs capitulation.

However one of the more interesting incidents was a clash between Josie Mourinho and the referee.

After witnessing a particular incident that he took exception to, Mourinho lept to his feet to protest to the match referee, Mike Riley.

After a brief exchange there was very up close footage of the Chelsea manager mouthing the words 'hijo de puta', not once, not twice, but thrice to the match official. Indeed the incident was even noted by 'commentator' Mark Lawrenson who stated he knew what he'd said but couldn't possibly say what it meant on national television.

'Hijo de puta' means 'Son of a whore'.

You maybe wondering what an Arsenal website is doing commenting on such an issue. Well in the interest of continuity I wondered if the FA would look at this incident and act accordingly.

Arsene Wenger faces charges of improper conduct after labelling officials 'liars' following the sending off of Manu Adebayor in the league cup final.

Surely this is just as bad, if not worse than anything Arsene Wenger has been up to in recent times?!

Also in the tunnel Maureen was in his face, doubtless dishing out some more bullying harassment, Will Riley have the balls to bring this arrogant egomaniac to book? I doubt it, he knows all too well what happened to Anders Frisk, he likes his life and does'nt wanna recieve sackloads of chavvy death threats, ugly club, ugly manager, ugly owner, ugly fans. Death to TEAMEVIL.

No need Kevin just read the archive of our Carling cup game from the lane another 2-0 lead they f*@ked up!

Maureen wont get charged. It clearly states in rule 2.7a of the FA code of conduct all officials must be abused in English. The FA will pin it on Adebayor if they have to charge somebody im sure he was within 50 miles of the incident and under FA rule 3.4 he can be charged in relation to the abuse recieved by old mother Riley.
11/03/2007 23:05:00
Maybe he knows his mother? I suspect the chosen one will be allowed to carry on regardless.
11/03/2007 23:10:00
It's the special one!Not the chosen one!Neo is the chosen one, Mourinho is the special one.
11/03/2007 23:16:00
well lets look at this from a scientific perspective: the punishment of a player/team/manager is inversely proportional to the amount of english players in their squad. so on this basis, the fa's logic unfortunately means that they will escape scott free. either that, or they add some more games on to adebayor's ban
