Wolves manager Gary O'Neil charged by FA for conduct after West Ham defeat

Posted : 11 April 2024

Gary O'Neil, manager of Wolves, faces a charge from the Football Association for alleged "improper and/or threatening" behavior following their 2-1 Premier League defeat against West Ham. The charge stems from O'Neil's purported language within the vicinity of the match officials' changing room, with the FA giving him until Monday to respond. O'Neil expressed vehement dissatisfaction with the decision to disallow a late Wolves equalizer at Molineux, labeling it as "possibly the worst decision I have ever seen."


The contentious incident occurred when Wolves captain Max Kilman headed home in the ninth minute of stoppage time, only for substitute Tawanda Chirewa to be deemed offside. Video assistant referee (VAR) Tim Robinson intervened, leading referee Tony Harrington to rule that Chirewa obstructed West Ham goalkeeper Lucasz Fabianski's line of vision. O'Neil, visibly incensed, sought an explanation from Harrington after the final whistle but was rebuffed, citing his inability to control his emotions adequately.


Reflecting on the incident, O'Neil criticized the officiating, expressing disappointment in the Premier League officials' interpretation of the offside decision. As Wolves, currently positioned 11th in the table, prepare to face relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest on Saturday, O'Neil's response to the FA charge remains pending, while the fallout from the controversial defeat continues to resonate within the club.
