Classless Newcastle left to recoil after some bruising

24 March 2013 07:02
Alan Pardew and John Carver were left in a state of embarrassment this week as Massaido Haidara's injury was revealed to be some bruising.

The 20 year old French full back was on the end of a hard tackle from Latics winger Callum McManaman. The ensuing incidents were escalated by Newcastle, and in particular manager Alan Pardew and his assistant John Carver.

The duo created a scene that led to Carver being sent to the stands by referee Mark Halsey with Pardew's comments after the game particularly damning and disrespectful.

Now news has emerged that Haidara will be out for just three weeks with a bruised knee.

Perhaps it would be wise for the FA to take retrospective action against the Newcastle boss and send him to the same school of class that Latics boss Roberto Martinez exhuded in deadling with the same incident.

After threats of legal action from Newcastle it will be interesting to see just what they attempt to chase the Latics with.

Meanwhile a group of Newcastle supporters invaded the pitch of Wigan Cosmos who were playing their Saturday league game on a pitch nearby the DW Stadium.

The Newcastle supporters continued to cause significant damage to the goals posts and associated equipment before the rabble moved on to their next target.

This is truly an incident where retrospective action from the FA is called for.
