Managerial touchline dispute

Newcastle manager Joe Kinnear and Hull boss Phil Brown were both sent to the stands by referee Phil Dowd after a confrontation during last night’s FA Cup tie. The incident began when Fabricio Coloccini was booked for a lunging tackle on Hull’s Daniel Cousin. Brown allegedly applauded the decision before launching a verbal attack in the direction of Newcastle assistant manager Chris Hughton.

Kinnear – never one to back away from a spot of bother – charged out of his dugout to go eyeball-to-eyeball with Brown. The pair were both dismissed. More money out of Kinnear’s pocket!

Oh, and Hull won 0-1.
