Moyes could be in hot water with FA again

Everton manager David Moyes may be back in front of Football Association disciplinary bosses early than he anticipated after labelling officials at Soho Square as ''a law unto themselves''.

Moyes was fined £5,000 earlier this week after admitting his outburst at referee Alan Wiley during Everton's 3-2 win at Stoke City back in September amounted to improper conduct.

Wiley sent the Everton boss to the stands at the Britannia Stadium after he berated the official for refusing to award a penalty and although the fine came with a warning about future conduct, Moyes was still happy to publicly express his opinions on the FA's judgement, complaining disappointment at being fined was compounded by the fact the FA panel actually agreed with him that the decision leading to his dismissal had been a terrible one.

''I pleaded guilty in my situation but the panel agreed the referee was wrong and that I shouldn't have been sent off for the decision but I still got found guilty so there you go,'' he said.

''Do I think that the fine was right? I don't think it was right, no, because I wouldn't have been sent off but for the decision which the referee made in the box and the board agreed that the referee made a poor decision.

''But I still get sent off and fined for it so there is something not right. Two wrongs don't make a right and I think that's what they tried to do there. They are a law unto themselves aren't they?. They make their own rules, they bring their own people in on the panels and make their own decisions so it is very difficult.''

Surprisingly, the Scot believes the Respect campaign launched pre-season to cut down on the amount of verbal abuse aimed at referees is working well on the ground but his admiration for the project does not extend as far as the FA itself.

Moyes also insists his temperament on the touchline will not change because of the FA's action and that he will continue to do what is best for Everton - even if that prompts more action from disciplinary chiefs.

''I shouldn't have been sent off but if they think I am going to sit back and twiddle my thumbs and not be passionate for my team and my supporters then I'm sorry but that's not going to be me,'' he added.

''I am going to be that. I think there is a lot of respect going on at this moment in time between the players and managers and referees and that is good but I would like to see some more of that from the FA as well. We are finding that their rules are very hard for people in the game to respect.''
