    Meyler wasn’t in the right by pushing Pardew, but as a long standing manager, the latter should have known better than to retaliate, especially with a headbutt.

    I know the argument about Pardew being in a place of responsibility. But you see this kind of thing time and time again. The players know that a £10,000 fine, a match ban and a slap on the wrist is not much. The F.A really has to clamp down. If this was a manager from a different country where retaliation is a bit more acceptable, the outcome might have been a full on brawl refs and all.
