FA To Charge Kinnear?

They claim the Newcastle United boss could face an FA charge over his foul-mouthed rant last week.

Apparently, earlier this year, Sheffield Wednesday chairman Dave Allen was found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute after he swore during a press conference and he was warned about his future conduct under the FA's Rule 3E.

Kinnear swore 52 times in 36 minutes on Thursday and refused an offer from the journalists to keep the exchange "off the record".

Well the buggers DIDN'T keep it off the record, and perhaps it was a little naive to expect them to give up an afternoon and NOT publish what they had been sent to SJP to report.
