About time he stopped getting away with stuff. I'm sure Rafa would have been happy with that :p

Righty so.

He should take a few pointers from Roberto Martinez on how to react if a decision doesn't go your way. Disputing a decision is one thing, questioning the integrity of the referee is another.

What's done is done. Just has to accept he was in the wrong, and move on and concentrate on trying to keep a grasp on the prem title. People make mistakes.

Ferguson charged by FA. He has until 4pm March 8 to respond to "improper conduct" charge.

So he will watch the match from touchline against Liverpool. That is very important..

Where does it say that? It actually states what games he will miss

If Ferguson's suspended ban is triggered, he will be suspended from the touchline for United's FA Cup sixth-round tie with Arsenal at Old Trafford on 12 March and the Premier League game with Bolton a week later and then whatever extra games are added on for his latest misdemeanour.

Posted by Liverpool fan in other forum.
I'm pretty sure that they don't miss any games until he's actually been found guilty or innocent. They have to give him a chance to respond and put his side across. Maybe that Liverpool fan is just very hopeful.

He shouldn't appeal it really. If he does, doesn't it get extended? That would be worse

Indeed, extremely important.

Would be hard to whisper how much time he wants added on to the forth official from the stands. ;)

In all seriousness, if it was a touchline ban it would say it in the article.

This on so many levels.

I don't mind when SAF has a dig at the refs performance (if they have a poor performance then managers should be allowed to say) but when you make it personal and say they are not fair is crossing the line. Everyone makes mistakes, including refs but for SAF to question his integrity is wrong.
