Battling Bellamy In The Clear

Battling Bellamy In The Clear



Good City news from the Football Association at last. Craig Bellamy will not be charged for his dismissal of that rag bellend at the end of The Great Rag Robbery...

MCFC just released the following statement...

'Manchester City can confirm that Craig Bellamy will not be charged by the Football Association following an incident with a Manchester United supporter at Sunday's Premier League fixture.

'The FA today announced that referee Martin Atkinson confirmed that he would not have sent Bellamy off had he seen the incident with the fan at the time.

'This means Bellamy is free for selection for tomorrow`s Carling Cup tie at home to Fulham and Monday evening`s Premier League fixture at home to West Ham United.

'Bellamy will be contacted by The FA and warned as to his future conduct.'

What a relief that the FA have seen sense over the pathetic calls for City's on fire striker to receive a 3 match ban for telling the pitch invading idiot to get off the park.

Just the booster Mark Hughes needed after the frustation of extra time at the swamp.

With Crocky Santa Cruz still unavailable, Bellers will be right in the thick of it tomorrow night.

Meanwhile the FA continued to clear the derby decks with a few more tickings off. Chief amongst them Gary "Chuckle" Neville's embarrassing last minute of extra time substitute warm up.

The FA said:

"The FA would repeat its previous advice that players should not become involved with or approach fans in such circumstances.
The FA would also take this opportunity to remind fans, managers and players of their joint responsibility towards the game and strongly condemns any pitch invasions by fans.

"Gary Neville has been reminded of his responsibilities following his actions after Manchester United's final goal deep into injury time.

"The FA has also contacted Manchester United regarding a coin-throwing incident during the same fixture. The FA fully expects the club to use all available means to identify and deal with the culprit appropriately and, along with the fan who entered the field of play, look to issue bans on attending future matches."

And that should be the end of this particular chapter. Take the positives. The next two derbies will be in Manchester and we'll be stronger.

Brilliant news. We can do without any more hangovers from the Manchester derby game. It's time to draw a line under it and get on with the season.

Not as I'm condoning bellers behaviour. But I’ll bet there’s not one of us that has not wanted to slap a rag at one time or another

Seeing as the FA are not doing anything about Neville running to the City fans then is it safe to presume there will be no further action taken against Ade then, or is that only if you're a current top 4 team?

Neville's was worse... he wasn't even on the pitch and he was already on a warning for doing the same thing against Liverpool. Add to that the fact that Ade was already booked in the match for the celebration and I really can't see how the FA can do any more than warn him.

Fortunately for us, the neville celebrations and turdinand's lovely little hand around the throat of a fellow professional would have been raised by City in Beller's defence. So in order not to receive the hairdryer treatment from the red ogre, they've dropped the matter. Any further news on what the pitch invader threw away?

P.S. Credit to Rooney for standing up for a fellow professional and acting to defuse the situation rather than behaving like a Turd (inand) as some of the other rags did. Still don't like him, but will give him credit for this one.

This is a bit of a surprise that the FA missed a chance to ban one of our players - Perhaps it was because they didn't have to alter the rules to do so in this case that they chose not to bother.
