48 FOUL ARS LIV C Sturridge claims a handball from Vermaelen. The ball was hanging between the two players. It first touched the arm of Sturridge and then fell against the arm of Vermaelen. Ref was correct to let them both go, both looked not intentional. 3
48 PENALTY ARS LIV C As said the ball came of the arm of Sturridge and then fell against the arm of Vermaelen both standing close to each other, the ball falling between them. 5

51 FOUL LIV ARS C Wisdom goes in to the path of Podolski and blocks his run. But by stepping in Wisdom had control of the ball and he was allowed to shield the ball. 3
51 PENALTY LIV ARS C As said Wisdom read the path of the ball and the path of Podolski and by having the ball near his feet he made no real foul but Podolski bumped in to him. 5
52 THROW IN LIV C Andre Wisdom concedes a throw in. 1
54 GOAL KICK ARS C Theo Walcott concedes a goal kick. 1
54 THROW IN LIV C Jamie Carragher concedes a throw in. 1
55 FOUL LIV C Lucas Leiva Commits a Regular foul. 1
56 FREE KICK ARS C Lukas Podolski takes a direct free kick. 1
57 YELLOW LIV NC Carragher gets treatment after being hit by a ball in the stomach. The ref tells him to leave the field by stepping over the goal line which is 2 meters away from him. But the Carragher decides to go to the side line and wanders half the width of the pitch before finally stepping outside the field. A master class in time wasting. Ref should have booked him for that. And what about the instruction that a player who got treatment should leave the field by the nearest line? 3

71 YELLOW LIV NC 3rd foul in the second half. Ref has a word but should have done like with Cazorla in the first half who got a yellow card after two fouls. 3
71 FREE KICK ARS C Aaron Ramsey takes a direct free kick. 1
72 THROW IN LIV C José Reina concedes a throw in. 1
72 FOUL LIV C Steven Gerrard Commits a Regular foul. 1
72 YELLOW LIV C Steven Gerrard recieves a YellowCard for the following reason: Foul. People argue that he should have been sent off, but he caught Mertesacker not with his outstretched leg but with the other leg. But still a much deserved yellow card for a late tackle. 1

    I thought at the time what a really good game the ref had and this review confirms it. Well done K Friend, show Dean and some of the others how to do it can you.

  • avatar Gonnerjoe

    The Daily Mail are an article on how Manu haven’t lost a game in 10 years that was refereed by Mark Helsey makes you think.

  • avatar Gonnerjoe

    Put Running between are -an sorry

  • avatar Stuart

    Good to see a low number of incorrect decisions however it is alarming that they are all against Arsenal.

  • avatar WalterBroeckx

    Stuart to be honest 2 of the 4 mistakes was down to the assistant.
    One was about a not given yellow card against Leiva. Not really a wrong call, just a different treatment compared to Cazorla earlier in the game which he handled correct.

    The one thing I for me found disappointing was his treatment or better said non-treatment of Carragher. But again this is something that I see a lot in the PL and that is beyond me that this hasn’t been put right by the PGMOL. Maybe I should write an article about it so Mike gets a reminder of this simple instruction?

    So only 4 wrong call and not one really decisive in any way of the game.

    It was a great game of football and I think much of the credit must go to the ref for treating both teams very well when it came to calling fouls. Using the same stick to measure both teams. That is the impression I had when I saw the game live and gets confirmed in this review

  • avatar Doanythingformoney

    What an amazing contrast between this and Nellie Dean’s pathetic pathetic offering. Thanks for the work chaps-excellent stuff. Pity the spineless press don’t(dare not)patrol our game like you do.

  • avatar Andrew Crawshaw

    Walter, I think this must be the highest score ever recorded for a ref in an Arsenal game. He certainly seems to have lived up to his pre-match billing as one of the best refs with no bias in favour of either team. Lets hope we see him again soon (but not against Manure as I still don’t trust him on that front). Wouldn’t mind him for the Spuds game.
