Cheick Tiote’s non-golazo was the major talking point at halftime at St James’ Park, and Magpies boss Alan Pardew failed to contain his anger at the decision.
As the players and officials trudged off the Newcastle pitch at the break of the Man City match, Pardew got in the face of referee Mike Jones to loudly shout:
The linesman’s right, you are wrong and you know that. You know that!
Pardew’s outburst was the natural response of a manager furious and frustrated with a poor call from the officials, however there is also little doubt that the incident, which was picked up clearly on TV, will land the Magpies boss in trouble.
