Agree it does cause some concern, from a neutral perspective is there any justification someone like Graham poll or another new seen the light media darling of an ex ref can use?
If not the club should issue a formal complaint, I think pep answered succinctly that he needs to understand the refs in English football.
If the media can get past the Chelsea victory, 3 rats my arse, the spotlight should shine on this inept performance and sanctions made against Taylor. No doubt the fa will be charging city and Chelsea for the melee so what have we to lose?December 4, 2016 at 9:48 am #1349215
How do i even start this? He wasnt fair on both sides today, no chance. Was proven when he stopped game for Chelsea player on the floor then let game continue when City player down. Why? Only reason is giving Chelsea an advantage, cant be anything else. Quite how he missed the handball for a City pen is a mystery, or is it? Any other ref, ANY OTHER, gives a foul and card against side show, just what reason he didnt needs explaining, only conclusion is he 100% knew blowing for a foul meant red card so he shit out. Why Ottamendi got a yellow for that i dont know. He wasnt studs up or reckless, just a solid timed tackle, games gone if this continues. I also want to point out the Wanker Fabregas. We know he slapped Fern but have any of you really studied the last part where he goes over the signs? If you look closely, Fern has let go and he walks backwards and deliberatly goes over them. Its very clever and fools the clown ref easily. I see all this mainly caused by our players angry at what is happening in front of them. Good job ref, well done, you won.
Last thing, we take our chances and we are out of sight in that game easily so quite why im reading tast Chelsea won easy is a mystery to me.December 4, 2016 at 9:56 am #1349233
Sorry, I forgot the elbow by Costa clean into Stones face. Result was play on, amazingDecember 4, 2016 at 3:37 pm #1349890
People say the referee was either totally inept or corrupt. You can all believe what you like I couldnt possibly commentDecember 20, 2016 at 9:46 am #1380835
Martin Atkinson did okay in the Arsenal game 8/10.
But the linesman Mr A Nunn gets a 10/10 🙂December 20, 2016 at 2:09 pm #1381606
They are supposed to give the advantage to the attacking player, makes a pleasant change to be on the right end of a marginal decision.January 1, 2017 at 3:42 am #1395079
Difficult to tell.from the telly but I thought Pawson against Liverpool had a pretty decent gameJanuary 2, 2017 at 9:21 am #1396579
Burnley (Home) – Lee MasonJanuary 2, 2017 at 12:05 pm #1396849
I agree on Pawson fella.Hopefully it’ll give
him his confidence back.After three shocking games
he had.Prior to the Liverpool game.January 2, 2017 at 7:27 pm #1398988
Mason (Burnley at Home)…
I think he got the Fernandinho decision correct, my initial reaction was it was red. I don’t think Bravo was fouled for the goal – that melee was purely of his (Bravo’s) own making. He did seem to get some decisions wrong as the game went on and consistently refused to blow up for Burnley players turning and bumping the city players when ever they jumped for a header.January 3, 2017 at 2:33 pm #1400572
Whilst it may be a red in todays non tackle sport. How come Roja gets a yellow for worse TWICE.
MASON HAD A POOR GAME AS USUAL. It was a foul on Bravo for their goal. Nothing said.
But wait – the arch villain Sagna for suggesting the truth 10 v 12. But for the FA the truth hurts.January 3, 2017 at 8:08 pm #1401067
Mason is generally poor, I worried for us when a Burnley player dived outside our box and he bought it. That in mind you have to wonder why dino would provide him with an opportunity to give a red, dino you are just a thick idiot and should be fined two weeks wages. Bravo flaps and has no command of his area, I don’t think it was a foul and pep must be wondering what he has done buying him as he is not the player he was. Other than these two biggies which the ref got right he was very poor, 4/10.January 7, 2017 at 10:37 am #1408540
West Ham away FA Cup. 9/10
I thought Michael Oliver had an excellent game.
The penalty was a bit harsh though?
I thought beforehand with the Augero/Reid spat
at our place.It might be a bit tricky?
Credit to the ref.For being in control from minute one
to ninety.January 10, 2017 at 9:48 am #1413100
Everton away Sunday 15th Jan
Ref : Mark ClattenbergJanuary 11, 2017 at 1:43 pm #1415143
Clattenberg v Everton – any predictions on his performance, was quiet lenient on us at the Swamp earlier this season and Everton not owned by Far East so perhaps could be a good appointmentJanuary 12, 2017 at 2:03 pm #1415685
For me Clattenberg and Oliver are the most consistent
I’d happily stay clear of messers Taylor and Mason for
the rest of the season.January 21, 2017 at 9:22 am #1420169
Spurs home 21-01-17
Let’s hope it’s not forgotten his contact lenses? 🙂
Ref ; Andre MarrinerJanuary 22, 2017 at 9:40 am #1420940
Andre Marriner v Spurs
I thought he had a very good first half but my oh my that was let down (for both sides) as the game became more frantic. The worse decision being the walker push which denied city a goal/pen and a red card – desperately poor decision as everyone in the stadium clearly saw it except the three people that countJanuary 22, 2017 at 12:41 pm #1421021
I think its unfair to throw all the blame on the Ref’s shoulders. yesterday’s game was yours to take and once again the defending and goal keeping positioning let you down big time. i still don’t know how you haven’t won that game. with the number of chances you have created. that Sterling one was penalty, but you can’t moan about that one alone. you were the dominant team throughout 90 min. and deservedly took a 2-0 lead. but since then you couldn’t defend.January 23, 2017 at 10:26 am #1421452
Chelsea man – the arguments about City’s defence (poor though it is) are all academic – the point is that if Marriner had given the pen (and red card), then City would have won the game and nobody would have been mentioning City’s defending – and this has become somewhat of a theme recently – it is only a few weeks since another ref’s woeful performance at the Etihad (against another London side) arguably changed the course of the game.
