Everton boss Moyes has dig at FA disciplinary panel

Everton boss David Moyes has labeled 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.

"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 told the Liverpool Daily Post.

"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."
