The Newcastle boss appeared in front of a three-man independent regulatory commission, where he is understood to have made a personal statement, and must now wait to find out what punishment the FA will hand down.

League Manager's Association (LMA) chief executive Richard Bevan was also in attendance to observe proceedings.

The charge followed the confrontation during United's 4-1 win at the KC Stadium on 1 March when Pardew butted Meyler on the touchline after the midfielder tried to retrieve the ball from the Newcastle technical area.

Match referee Kevin Friend cautioned Meyler for his part in the incident and then sent Pardew to the stands, from where he watched the remainder of the game.

In the hours immediately after the match, Pardew made a public apology for his behaviour, while he was fined £100,000 by his club and issued with a formal warning.

The commission can take previous offences into consideration - Pardew was given a two-match touchline ban and £20,000 fine in August 2012 for pushing an assistant referee.

He was also warned about his future conduct by the FA in January this year following an angry exchange when he was caught on camera swearing at Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
