Ferguson dodges FA action

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will not face punishment for confronting referee Mike Dean at Old Trafford on Wednesday, the Football Association has confirmed.

The Scot was furious after Dean overruled assistant Jake Collin and awarded Newcastle's second goal in the Red Devils' 4-3 win.

Okwonga: Hernandez delivers

The FA confirmed no action would be taken against the Red Devils boss as Dean made no reference to Ferguson confronting him in his report. Ferguson approached Dean as he made his way out for the second half, before rounding on the fourth official Neil Swarbrick and Collin.

Dean did not send Ferguson off during the match, which ended with United going seven points clear at the top of the Premier League thanks to their win and Manchester City's 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.

Ferguson was furious that Dean allowed a Jonny Evans own goal to stand after Collin had flagged for offside against Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse.

"The referee changed the linesman's mind. He said it was an own goal. But if you see it again, and the referee can't, the guy is in an offside position, then he pulls Evans' arm," Ferguson said. "If that is not interfering, what is? I think it was a bad decision."

The Premier League issued a clarification, backing Dean's decision, confirming that "as Cisse did not play the ball, then he was not interfering with play."

The league also stated that: "It is also the case that Cisse didn't interfere with the opponent.''

Javier Hernandez's 90th-minute winner gave United the spoils as they fought back three times from a goal down to edge out Newcastle in an enthralling encounter.

2Day FM cancels show, suspends prank calls

The fallout from the 2Day FM radio prank continues, with Southern Cross Austereo cancelling the Hot 30 show and issuing a company-wide suspension of prank calls.

The decision follows the suspension of all advertising on 2Day FM, which was announced over the weekend.

Radio hosts Mel Greig and Michael Christian had already been suspended indefinitely from 2Day FM following the death of a nurse they spoke to during a prank call to the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was a patient.

"SCA and the hosts of the radio program have also decided that they will not return to the airwaves until further notice," the company said in a statement.


Greig and Christian were due to appear on two TV current affairs programs tonight.

Southern Cross Austereo said it did not believe the prank "breached any relevant law, regulation or code", but was "conducting a comprehensive review of company policies and processes".

"The Company has conducted a review of the process undertaken in the airing of the segment which has found that company protocols were adhered to," Southern Cross Austereo said in a statement.

"Several attempts were made by the production team to discuss the segment with the hospital, but with no success. The segment was referred to an internal review process which included internal legal review and authorisation was granted to broadcast."

Tevez is a sore LOSER! He kicks Phil Jones...suspension is likely. #mufc #epl

Carlos Tevez shows that good old Manchester City class behavior.  He will probably get 3 match ban for this.  It doesn't appear the referee saw it so the FA is free to punish Tevez.   This incident is in addition to the City fans who were pelting United players with coins and trash and invading the pitch.  City's trip to Old Trafford in the coming months is going to be crazy...hopefully United fans will be able to restrain themselves.

Just another United v. City match: United win at City 3:2...and City's fans don't like it. #mufc #epl
