The Untold ref review: Chelsea – Norwich

Untold Arsenal on Twitter @UntoldArsenal

By Ref Reviewer 03

As we work from across the world sometimes there are delays when doing the ref reviews and before we can get it published.

So here we have a review of Chelsea – Norwich and the ref in charge was Mike Jones.

Min Type Foul from On C/NC Comment points weight
2 OTHER Crofts Lampard C Foul 1 1
4 OTHER Holt Terry C Shoving 1 1
4 YELLOW Holt C Holt shoved Terry into Hilario, a possible booking, however Terry stopped very suddenly to protect the ball which was still outside the area. Ref’s decision not to give a card is okay 1 2
5 OTHER Ivanovic Holt C Foul 1 1
6 GOAL C Bosingwa – goal okay 1 3
7 OTHER Holt Cole C Foul 1 1
8 OFFSIDE Hoolahan C 1 1
9 OTHER Hoolahan Bosingwa NC Hoolahan tugged on Bosingwa after losing possession 0 0

62 OFFSIDE Torres C 1 1
63 GOAL C Holt – onside, goal okay 1 3
64 OFFSIDE Drogba C Drogba got needlessly injured on this play as he was already called for offside.  The keeper made an honest attempt to play the ball, unfortunately for Drogba though as he went off concussed on a stretcher. 1 1

74 OFFSIDE Holt C 1 1
77 OTHER Terry Morrison NC Terry grabbed at Morrison as he was going past him – not given 0 0

77 OTHER Torres Johnson C Trip from behind 1 1
77 RED Torres NC Cynical trip from Torres from behind, nowhere near playing the ball. He should have received his 2nd yellow. 0 0
80 PENALTY Ruddy Ramires C Ruddy made an honest attempt at the ball but Ramires got to the ball first and the ball was still within reach when contact was made by the keeper. Correct call. 1 3
80 RED Ruddy NC Ruddy tried to play the ball and Ramires beat him to the ball going outside and away from goal. The keeper should not have been sent off. 0 0
82 GOAL C Lampard from the spot – goal okay 1 3

So we have seen a great first half of the ref with all the key decisions right. But then in the second half the performance dropped significantly. Thanks to his first half the final score was still okay.

Just wish to thank our ref reviewer for doing his job in very difficult circumstances and I hope things do look better in the next days.

    The ref had a very good first half, the second half wasn’t very good. It’s interesting to note that after Norwich had equalised, the ref’s calls started favouring Chelsea. I trust that was just a coincidence.

  • El Gringo

    3 dodgy card decisions going Chelsea’s way within three minutes:

    77–Terry doesn’t get carded
    77–Torres doesn’t get carded and sent off
    80–Ruddy gets red carded and sent off

    If it were Arsenal instead of Norwich, we’d be justifiably enraged. It sounds as if Norwich got busaccaed.

  • menace

    @Gringo – the aspect that is critical is who plays Norwich in the next few games without Ruddy. I am surprised 2 or more reds were not given to Chelsea players to set them up for United next week.

    I think this Law change stinks. Keepers should only be sent off for dangerous play. The forwards put the ball past the keeper and ensure contact. It is cheating in most cases.

  • El Gringo

    I agree, menace. A basic premise of any sensible justice system is that one offense merits only one punishment. A penalty and a sending off is clearly two punishments for the same offense, which is an unjust situation.

    About Norwich playing without Ruddy, I just read on the BBC that his replacement, Declan Rudd (weird coincidence of surnames!), is only 20. Talk about nerves and the potential for the huge disadvantage of a starstruck keeper. To his credit, though, Rudd saved a penalty to keep Norwich in the game against West Brom.
