When I started reviewing the game I suddenly realised it had a healthy Fabrice Muamba on the pitch. And this was just a few hours after what happened last Saturday. Another example on how things in life can change so quickly.

On to the game: a rather easy game in fact.  Not many fouls, not many incidents. A very flat first half with only one yellow card for a dive and a correct call from the ref and a correct card. A few mistakes but not that many.

The second half was not as good as the first half. I’m sorry to say Muamba escaped a yellow card for a tackle when he showed his studs.

The ref let a few things and cards go and this lowered his score.

There was not such a thing as home bias or big team bias to be seen in this game. Most wrong calls went against Chelsea who was the home team.  But because of Chelsea winning the game comfortably it didn’t matter at the end of the day.

    As an Arsenal fan, I just have to point out Ryo’s clearance off the line at 55′ — all that flair and he tracks back, too?!

  • RedGooner

    I agree to everything apart from what you said at the end of the report.
    Quote “But because of Chelsea winning the game comfortably it didn’t matter at the end of the day.”

    Im sorry but these reviews are to encourage everyone to look at scrutinize and bring attention to poor performances of the PGMOL officials and hopefuly improve the standards currently accepted by far to many.

    It does matter at the end of the day…. if a REF was poor just because Chelsea won doesnt mean he shouldnt be castigated for the crap type of performance we see week in and week out, most of the wrong calls against Chelsea or any team shouldnt happen.

  • RedGooner

    Oh and appologies if that sounds nit picky I appreciate all the hard work that goes in to these reports…..I just think all of the PGMOL officals should be held accountable for their performances regardless of the result of an individual match.

  • Kentetsu

    Here (minute 43), and in the ManC – Blackburn review too, it says “should be carded”, but the decision to not give a card is still shown as C(orrect) in the table, as well as in the table with competency summary. Should that not be N/C and 0 out of 1 for the Period 1 competency summary?

  • Kentetsu

    All right, from the conclusion I understand that Pratley was indeed carded, but “should be carded” is not the best word choice, in my opinion. It seems as if the ref should issue the card, but did not.
