Fulham boss Chris Coleman says the FA is wrong to charge West Ham’s Alan Pardew and Arsenal’ Wenger over their clash at West Ham this week.

He said: ‘Fans want their managers to show passion.

‘It would be impossible for me not to celebrate a goal. I’ve found myself standing three yards on to the pitch after we have scored and could not even tell you how I got there.

‘What we saw at West Ham was a manager who was under pressure and another who was disappointed that a couple of decisions didn’t go his way. It was understandable.’

Coleman said that Manchester United chief Alex Ferguson was the one boss he would not like to upset.

He said: ‘The hardest manager in the Premiership? There is only one hard man – and he’s a Scot.’

  • The trouble with Chris Coleman’s comments here is Pardew was showing the right passion but Wenger was showing hostility because he is a bad loser, Wenger should be banned!

  • What is it with you Cravens?? You have an obsession with our manager. Get over it and grow up. Two blokes squaring up to eachother and throwing in a swear word or two isn’t going to destroy football you moronic oaf. If you want passionless yes men in charge then you are always going to accept mediocrity and a lack of success. I find it astonishing that two coin throwing w****rs at the weekend have been completely overshadowed by a little handbags at ten paces, and people like you vilifying Wenger just because he has finally given you an opportunity to do so.

  • WTF did Pardew do wrong. Wenger went mad as soon as Pardew went near him, he was even shouting at the guy who held him off. Wenger should be banned from the touch-line for three matches. He WAY over reacted, and should be severly punished.

  • Wenger was inexcusable, but we can’t stop managers celebrating goals, it shows us fans how much they care!!!

  • Hatespur, actually I am only saying what the rest of the premiership fans are thinking, Wenger is a thug! its was only a few weeks ago that he squared up to Martin Jol, and it wont’t be long before he does it again, he is a bad loser like the rest of the Arsenal squad! and before you go on about this ‘handbags’ as you so eliquently put it has overshadowed the 2 coin throwing incidents, have a look at our previous articles, we have probably covered and condemned the coin throwing incidents more than any other site. have a nice day!
