Much has been said about the Pardew Headbutt incident, a lot of it of course rubbish.

All the media pundits/journalists with their snouts in the trough, as they compete to being the most outraged about something that most of them probably laughed at when they saw it.

Nobody ended up with teeth marks on their body, nobody was carted off to hospital with broken legs/jaw as has happened in the past.

What the images show is that Meyler was indeed also totally out of order as you see how physical he was to the opposing manager despite little or no provocation.

However, this footage also makes Pardew’s forward motion with his head look far worse than I’ve seen in video/stills elsewhere.

The Newcastle manager claiming that he’d simply being trying to push Meyler away doesn’t really wash.

As I say though, nobody physically hurt and surely all that was needed was both of them sent off and a subsequent ban, case closed.
