11. And who is the head of the FA???
So, Whos The Chairman Of The FA?

The FA today confirmed that Wayne Rooney would serve a two match ban for swearing after he scored his hattrick against West Ham. Even journalists who salivate at the thought of slagging off Manchester United, like Oliver Holt, have admitted what a balls up the FA have made of this.
So, how is it possible that the FA could have got it so wrong?
Two words.
David Bernstein.
The former Manchester City board member and chairman was appointed the chairman of the FA at the start of the year. When leaving City he said: I would like to thank our wonderful fans for their backing. They have been fantastic in their support, which has never wavered even during the most difficult times. I have been touched by their kindness and enthusiasm. I have supported Manchester City since I was a boy and I am desperate for us to succeed.
Weve seen just how desperate he is for that today, ensuring that Rooney is banned for the FA Cup semi-final, Citys final hope of silverware this season in their 35th year since they last won a trophy.
And you couldnt make this up. The man who is so offended by Rooneys swearing that he felt a two match ban was an appropriate punishment, worked for French Connection before joining Citys board and was behind their controversial range of t-shirts which included: fcuk this, hot as fcuk, mile high fcuk, fcuk me, fcuk her, too busy to fcuk, fcuk football, fcuk fashion, fcuk fear and fcuk on the beach.
What?! Fcuking what?
Now that is a real and fair judgement.....but hey the FA made a tough decision for SAF easy. Now the EPL's top goal scorer can find a way back into the starting 11. Berba gets to start 2 out of the next 3 games. Wayne is forced to rest on Saturday (and thus ensures he is 100% for next Tuesday's return leg against Chelsea). As for Wayne not playing at Wembley, he'll play at least once in a final at the stadium in May, if not twice.

BTW t-shirts for sale (the end result of all of it, someone gets rich) /
