Pardew prepares for long Newcastle ban

Newcastle United are drawing up contingency plans as they prepare for manager Alan Pardew to receive punishment for his attempted headbutt on Hull’s David Meyler, the Daily Star has reported.

A three man FA commission are set to meet to decide the severity of punishment handed to Alan Pardew after his headbutt on Meyler, following flared tempers during the Toon’s 4-1 win at the KC Stadium.

Pardew, who was fined £100,000 and formerly warned in writing by his club within hours of the incident, has pleaded guilty to a charge of misconduct.

He will be present at the hearing where his representatives will attempt to argue there was no violent intent behind his actions.

However a poor history of discipline may count against him and with the FA stressing the case was unique - with no form of standard punishment available, Pardew’s camp are bracing themselves for a stadium ban, and even lengthier touchline absence.

The Newcastle boss has already discussed the implication of the ban with his staff - which could be up to 10 games away from the stadium alone, and feels the team will be in safe hands with his number two John Carver on match day managerial duties.

He is expected to travel with the team to their next fixture away at Fulham, but will not be allowed inside Craven Cottage, instead watch on video equipment set up at the team’s hotel, with this arrangement set to be used for future games.
