Fergie has a go at Pardew and his small club

Following our 4-3 win over Newcastle, there was a lot of focus on Sir Alex Ferguson’s behaviour towards officials. The Magpies were given a goal after it already being disallowed when Papiss Cisse stood in an offside position, acting as a distraction for Manchester United defender Jonny Evans, who put the ball in his own net.

Mike Dean, who was referee, did not mention Ferguson’s treatment of officials in his match report. This meant he could not be punished upsetting many people, including Newcastle manager Alan Pardew.

Pardew told reporters: “I think Mike Dean might feel slightly disappointed he didn’t do something about it. I think the pressure that was on him was tough for a referee to take. Sometimes when you reflect on a game you think you might have acted differently. You do that as a manager and I think he might have done that as a referee.

“But it’s an emotional game and apparently they had a cordial discussion. I’ve had a few of those myself and sometimes I’ve ended up in the stands as a result of that cordial discussion.”

How Pardew felt he was in such a position to have a moral high ground view baffles me. When the officials disallowed Newcastle’s second, he raced to the linesman and bullied him into changing his mind. Hypocritical?

In Fergie’s press conference today, he had a go at Pardew and labeled Newcastle a small club.

“He is the worst for haranguing referees. His whole staff, every game. He was at it the whole game on Wednesday,” Ferguson said. “He shoves a referee and makes a joke of it, then he’s got the cheek to criticise me. It’s unbelievable. He forgets about all the help I’ve given him, by the way.”

When asked about his spat with the officials, Ferguson went on to claim it’s the price of being at the “most famous club in the world” and not a “wee club in the north-east like Newcastle.”

    Classy SAF. Have a go at a club that is no where near as big a club as Manchester United. Yes, NUFC are a small club in comparison but that small club where ahead 3 times and came away with nothing as usuall. SAF need’s to remember he was nearly sacked all them years ago until a turn in fortune. So, good luck Manchester United, no doubt we will see you lot lift the EPL again while the runts below look on in envy. SAF is a very very good manager and has won more then i can remember but he will never ever be a SIR BOBBY ROBSON. A man who had class and compassion and a love for all Football and all clubs unlike SAF who comes across as spitful and petty bitter old man….BAAAAA HUMBUG hahahaha.

    Why attack Newcastle United and it’s fans? his problem is with Alan Pardew. There was absolutely no need at all for him to have a dig at Newcastle United football club. What a horrible little man.

    Well… who the hell does this purple nose s**t think he is?! His problem is with Pardew and not the club.

    It’s sad really. Before this, I admired the man. But now I have a willingness to slate him and his pathetic excuse for a club. Wednesday night he was lucky cause we tired out, but I can’t wait for the day his team play Real Madrid. They’ll be leaking left, right and centre. W**ker.

    Pathetic excuse for a club errmm. A club that didnt nearly go down to the 3rd division. Have 5 figure crowd numbers. Sold Andy Cole to said pathetic club. Signed Shearer (god) who won less there than David May. They actually think they are “the greatest team in football the world has ever seen” Deluded dont cover it HA
