Difficult to argue with the yellow, it was a deliberate foul, but there has been so much worse not cautioned, I am confused by the Refs thinking, is it because Baird is not high profile

It was a strange performance by the Ref; Mark Halsey failed on a number of occasions to take decisions when they were there to be made. Easy penalties were missed, one for each team, blatant dives waved away yet not cautioned (both Man Utd players) and a straight Red for Dempsey was not even awarded as a foul, never mind the red card. Jumping vertically, he threw his elbow right into the face of Jones, resulting in Jones leaving the pitch with concussion, it was the first minute but the laws apply the same.

Halsey was often too far from the decision, or too slow to move out of the way of players, frequently getting in the way of the game.

The decision to caution Baird was correct, but it was just a soft foul preventing a Man U attack, much worse had taken place prior with no cards brandished, it was inconsistent poor refereeing.

The game was all over before half time so the poor performance of the Ref was not the headline, apart from on Untold that is!!

  • Gord

    Nice explanations for the report, the various no card incidents in particular. Thanks.

  • Kentetsu

    Surprisingly poor ref performance, considering there is no bias towards either Fulham or ManU. How does this compare with Halsey’s performance throughout the season so far? Is it an incident or is he generally a poor ref? What other explanations could there be?

  • walter

    Kentetsu in general he gets low scores in the reviews so far.
