Charges Dropped

Recommended Posts

The FA have been forced to drop a charge of improper conduct against David Moyes - thanks to evidence supplied by the Liverpool ECHO.

 

Moyes was charged with two breaches of FA rule E3 following comments he made about Mark Clattenburg's performance in the Goodison derby in October.

 

But after the intervention of the Echo, the FA has dropped the first charge. Graham Bean, of Football Factors who represented Moyes said: "Thanks to the evidence supplied by the Liverpool Echo we could prove that David had not made the comments which were alleged of him.

 

"Without it then there was a possibility that the charge would have been found proven and it cannot be right that the FA are reliant upon inaccurate evidence. It would have been the equivalent of a miscarriage of justice!

 

"The FA now need to review their whole policy on charging people in the game where they rely on the content of a newspaper article as this episode has proved highly embarrassing for them. They have withdrawn a charge because they have failed to ensure that the evidence they relied upon is correct."

 

The Echo supplied a recording of David Moyes' post-match press conference following the October derby match, which proved he did not actually make comments which were reported elsewhere.

 

Moyes does, however, still face another charge of improper conduct following comments he is alleged to have made about Clattenburg the following week at a separate press conference.

So why has nothing been done about it more than three months later? Aren't they normally dealt with immediately....very strange.

They're probably going to wait until just before the Liverpool rematch and then announce that he's been given a one-game suspension. ;)
