Surprise, surprise Manyoo pair 'escape punishment'

Surprise, surprise Manyoo pair 'escape punishment'

What a surprise 'Rudolph' aka Sir Alex Ferguson and his trusty sidekick, Carlos Queiroz - the one that does 'the moaning' on the BBC as Rudolph will no longer talk to them - have both got away with comments made after we beat Manyoo in the FA cup quarter final in March...

Because we 'had the nerve' to go into their backyard and beat them the pair decided that it was right and fair to blame anyone and everyone for their defeat, 'the referee is a cheat as he did not give us a penalty, but he gave them, a visiting team one', 'they beat up our players - who need more protection than they get from thugs like Diarra and Distin' and 'Keith Hackett needs to start doing his job properly' were just some of the whines they had, and they were some of the more pleasant things!

All of this detracted from the fact that we went to Manyoo and beat them, something that few teams do, particularly 'little Portsmouth', so it ended up being 'all about Manyoo' as always, with us losing out on the chance of getting so much more praise, as we should have for that achievement.

Having 'successfully argued their cases' the pair has been cleared of 'improper conduct' and will have no further action against them from the spineless FA, who would have no doubt chucked the book at Harry Redknapp, Joe Jordan and Tony Adams for such things, or most other managers and coaches for that matter!

A statement on The FA's official website read: 'at an independent Regulatory Commission hearing today, charges against Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and assistant manager Carlos Queiroz were found not proved.'

Clearly this case must have been put to the Welsh FA then...

clearly, they are just trying to prove it ISN'T just the welsh FA that make stupid decisions... the english FA can too. I just read that the FA were apealing against there own decision though...

It makes the FA a laughing stock. It only proves the special Ferguson position in football today. It makes me sick.

no wonder he is laughing - a rare sight in itself - having got away with what he has, why can the fa and so on not let eveyone be on a level playing field instead of having rules for some, and others for the rest...

Rug - I have seen the ManU article on their site and had written something really rude for them, but decided not to send it. However, their attitude stinks.

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 11th February.

What do we hope for from the rest of the season?

There seems to be a lot of unhappiness around, despite a pretty decent season in my opinion. Well, certainly our best season in a long while.
