    Bit harsh on Ba. He admitted it was a handball after the game, not exactly his decision. Because of the somewhat ludicrous 'deliberate' handball law I don't even know if he'd committed a foul. Maybe there's a subsection that confirms he has, i don't know, but it certainly wasn't deliberate.

    Did anyone see the penalty given by Mark Halsey against us last night? Quite possibly the worst penalty call I've ever seen.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Agreed, the theatrics and cheating are what he is now known for so unless he is taken out knee high he won't get one.

    Yeah, pretty much. If a player hurls himself to the ground I personally have no problem with them being denied an actual penalty or two because of it.

    That said I do think there is some residual little Englanderism in the application of the unwritten rule; Rooney's a terrible (as in habitual, not terrible at it) diver and he still gets penalties. I think with players like Suarez and Pires who are very foreign there's a perception that diving is what they do, whereas the natives are more honest.

    Meanwhile Cech won the game for the Chavs yesterday; pulled off two absolute blibders in the second half.

    & Giroud's a dud. I think we can call it now.

Rio was getting annihilated and their midfield didn't have the legs to keep with Dembele and Sandro. Silly to ask Giggs and Scholes to try and stop those guys. And why Fergie took off Kagawa I don't know. Didn't even know Carrick was playing.

    Have to say Bale skinning Ferdinand sr was a pretty solid reposte to the "Rio 4 England" brigade amongst the fourth estate who've been making noises following Terry's flounce.

    Might just be that Woy wasn't telling prokies when he said he'd been left out for footballing reasons.

    This was classic.

    Rio Ferdinand still has the power

    In defence of Ferdinand there's zero chance Lescott of Jagielka would have kept up with Bale either and he was immense against Liverpool last week.

    Some ****s never change


    Alan Pardew has admitted that he would be interested in becoming England manager but is well aware of the pitfalls involved.


    This week the Newcastle boss put pen to paper on an unprecedented eight-year contract on Tyneside, 18 months after arriving to replace the popular Chris Hughton.

    The former West Ham, Reading, Charlton and Southampton manager was a controversial appointment, but the 51-year-old's stock has risen after guiding the Magpies into Europe.

    Despite the length of his new deal, Pardew has confessed to harbouring international ambitions, but he feels any possibility of managing the national side is a long way in the future.

    "I do have ambitions internationally, I would like to do that at some point," he told the Sunday Mirror. "Hopefully, I will see this contract out and then see what I'm going to do later on.

    "I have always felt that a person can be a success as England manager. I won't change my opinion on that, but I don't think it's easy.

    "Roy Hodgson probably has a tough spell as England manager because our pool of players is not as great as it used to be. Ultimately my ambition might reach that conclusion: to be England manager.

    "It's not something I would not do and it's not something I want to do right now."

    Pardew is wary over the effect any direct interest in the England job would have due to the speculation that surrounded the appointment of Fabio Capello's successor earlier in 2012.

    "It is difficult because Harry Redknapp came out and said he wanted to be the England manager one day and he got into a situation where he lost his job at Spurs," he said.

    Pardew was also keen to credit Newcastle owner Mike Ashley for the length of his new contract, after initially signing a five-year deal when he succeeded Hughton in December 2010.

    "Both of us looked at the contract and felt it lacked a bit of security. So, this contract is more secure for Mike in terms of keeping me at the football club," he added.

    "The eight years came from Mike. I never got to the point of talking about how long I wanted the contract for. He spoke to me about eight years - and I thought OK!"

    Aye. Can hardly blame Ferdinand for that. Evans made the wrong decision to keep tracking Defoe instead of switching over to Bale. Pretty much most CBs would have been done for by Bale in that situation Rio was in. Room to run and up to top speed.

    Is there any centre half quick enough to keep up with Bale when he is in full flow?

    Made Ferdinand look a chump but as you say, not many would have been able to stop him.
