That's why Mancini and Redknapp are facing charges and he's not. When he criticised a ref for being overweight in an interview he got a 4 game touchline ban (2 suspended).
No one remembers his response to Rafa calling Everton a small club then?
He's either senile or a massive hypocrite. Still sets the news agenda every week though. Suppose the lazy journalists are to blame for that.
How has he escaped an FA charge this week? Anyone know?
Personally, I think he's wrong on the point and that Cisse wasn't offside. For all the criticism he's getting though, he's hardly unique in moaning at/about refs, is he?
And Pardew's just made himself look like a twat.
