Untold Ref Review: Chelsea 4 – Swansea 1

Background: Initially Untold Arsenal started to publish referee reviews of Arsenal matches, and through this we found some evidence of what appeared to be consistent bias by referees against Arsenal.  The point was then made we would get a better overall picture of what is going on if we also analysed errors made by referees in non-Arsenal EPL games as well.

This site records our findings.  A summary of our position from the point of view of evidence is given here. There are links to our central sites on ref reviews and on corruption in football here…

The second half of the ref was better than the first half in this game.

Most talked about was the sending off and I can agree with the ref on his decision. Torres launched himself and his studs where showing towards the shin of the Swansea player. This was very dangerous and if the Swansea player would have found his foot stuck in the ground it could have caused a broken leg. So a red card was the only correct card for this.

For the rest I thought he gave a few soft yellow cards. Two against Chelsea and certainly the Mata one was soft. Certainly if you think that in the second half on almost the same spot a Swansea player did the same on Drogba and no card was produced. Consistency…

But a good score from the ref on all numbers that matter in this game apart from his distribution of yellow cards.

Important notice: All referee reviews on Untold Arsenal are written on the basis of television coverage.  It should be noted that from time to time some TV channels choose not to show an incident involving the referee (preferring for example to show a replay instead).   This can lead to our reviewer missing something that would have been spotted by the crowd.  We’re sorry this happens, but really can’t find any way around this at present.

    Oh and Swansea really is a team that so far didn’t turn in to a kick them if you cant beat them-team.
    yes they do make fouls but they try to play the game as much as they can. So probably they will go down at the end of the season. Well I for once hope that if they keep playing like that they stay in the PL.
