Newcastle United are disappointed with the actions of its manager Alan Pardew this afternoon (Saturday, 1st March).
His behaviour was unacceptable and is not the behaviour we expect from the manager of Newcastle United.
It is most disappointing that this incident has taken the focus away from what was a fantastic performance by the team and an excellent result away from home which leaves the club in eighth place in the Barclays Premier League.
Sadly, the headlines tomorrow will not be focused on the result or the efforts of the players, but instead on the actions of our manager.
Alan unreservedly apologised immediately following the game to the player, to Hull City Football Club and its fans, and to the fans of Newcastle United.
We have held discussions this evening with Alan who has offered his sincere apologies to the Club and it is clear he deeply regrets his actions. Alan has accepted a formal warning from the Club in relation to his behaviour today and also a Club fine of £100,000.
The Club is now drawing a line under this matter and will be making no further comment.
U.S. Soccer’s membership re-elected Sunil Gulati as President of the U.S. Soccer Federation by unanimous consent on Saturday at the Marriott Marquis in New York. Gulati, who ran unopposed in the election, enters his third four-year term after having served as U.S. Soccer’s President since 2006.
In other news at Saturday’s National Council meeting, Merritt Paulson and Arthur Mattson were elected as new members of U.S. Soccer’s Board of Directors. Paulson replaced Kevin Payne, while Mattson replaced Richard Groff. Donna Shalala was also re-elected as an Independent Director, while Rocco Amoroso and Francisco Marcos were voted as Life Members.
“I’m honored to be granted the opportunity to serve our membership as President of the U.S. Soccer Federation,” said Gulati. “Over the years, soccer has made numerous strides in the U.S. and we are excited by the sport’s boundless potential for growth in the future. I’m looking forward to being part of soccer’s bright future on all levels throughout the country.”
A native of Allahabad, India, Gulati has more than 30 years of experience at all levels of soccer in the United States and has helped the sport rise to new heights. During the past four years as President, Gulati has continued his mission of improving soccer in the United States by taking an active approach on improving the structure and development of the sport in the country, while also reaching out to broaden the organization’s relationships within the international community.
Last April, Gulati was also elected to the FIFA Executive Committee and is serving a four-year term as one of three representatives from the Confederation that encompasses North America, Central America and the Caribbean.

Kevin Hart (@KevinHart4Real) definitely has the belt as the hardest working man in show business right now. He’s opening huge movies(Ride Along is over $125m already), touring the world and selling out arenas, hosting award shows and being at every major celebrity event there is. I happened to look at his IG for something random and spotted these pics of him at Etihad.
Always amazing to me how far the reach of this game is. Go see RIDE ALONG by the way, the movie is hilarious!
The scene was crazy today at The Kingston Communications Stadium in Newcastle’s 4 -1 win over Hull. Inside of 20 minutes, the ball went out of play by the dugouts with Newcastle leading 3-1, and as David Meyler went to retrieve the ball, he became involved in an altercation with the Magpies boss, who appeared to throw his head towards the midfielder.
Meyler was booked for his involvement while Pardew was sent off by referee Kevin Friend. Expect to see and hear A LOT more about this in the next few days.
