    Noticed Pep wearing the Marie Curie daffodil at last nights match.

    This is a great charity that does wonderful work, but suspect the yellow was significant to Pep - stuff that up your jacksie you prats at the FA.

    The BBC website ran several pics of Pep pitchside last night with a daffodil visible and a piece of the ribbon sticking out of the edge of his sweat top.

    So this apparently was the reason for the fine :

    Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola was fined for wearing a yellow ribbon because he did so in an "act of defiance", despite warnings he was breaking Football Association rules.

    In its written reasons explaining the £20,000 fine, the FA said it had sent Guardiola "numerous warning letters".

    The Spaniard last week accepted an FA charge of "wearing a political message".

    He was also warned by the FA about his future conduct.

    In November, Spaniard Guardiola said he wore the ribbon to support imprisoned politicians in his native Catalonia.

    The FA spoke to the City boss about the situation in December and had previously issued two formal warnings.

    Action was taken after he wore it at pitchside - he is free to wear it elsewhere - during City's FA Cup fifth-round loss to League One side Wigan on 19 February.

    It cost 40 grand for a a full page, colour advert in a main stream newspaper which people generally flick past, 30 seconds of TV advertising costs about the same and people are brewing up at the time. Pep managed one months of almost daily publicity, covered by the papers, TV and internet, all for twenty grand. Whose the fool Mr Glenn ?

    Have the FA ever considered fining Grieg Clarke and Martin Glenn for their utter incompetence and array of public gaffs !
