Newcastle To Be Docked 6 Points

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Newcastle UTD were dealt a severe blow today, with the FA confirming that the club will be docked 6 points. The penalty will lower the Tynesiders into 19th position and the relegation dogfight unfolding at the bottom of the league.
The punishment pertains to the signing of José Enrique in 2007, by then manager Sam Allardyce.

“I played José in a 1- 1 draw against Sunderland,” Allardyce told Soccer on Sunday. “I’d forgotten to sign some paperwork, so he wasn’t eligible, but I picked him anyway.”
“After 8 years I can’t live with the guilt any more, so I contacted the FA last week and came clean,” he added.

Sunderland

FA chairman Greg Dyke has confirmed that Sunderland — ironically, the team Allardyce now manages — will be credited with the 6 points, lifting them clear of the relegation zone.
“It’s only fair,” Allardyce told Soccer on Sunday. “Newcastle played fast and loose with the rules, which is typical of them. They have to be punished. But Sunderland are the injured party here, and that has to be recognised too.”
“It’s difficult to forgive, if I’m honest,” he added. “We deserve justice.”

McClaren


Embattled Magpies boss Steve McClaren has moved quickly to quell the controversy.
“On behalf of Newcastle UTD, I’d like to apologise to Sunderland and Big Sam for the fielding of an ineligible player in 2007,” the former England manager told Soccer on Sunday. “The conduct of Newcastle, and in particular Big Sam, was beneath the standard of this great club.”
“All parties need to move on now,” he added. “Sunderland, Big Sam, Newcastle, and of course, Big Sam.”
