2: Matchweek 11 Summary

A somewhat better week in terms of the total number of wrong Important Decisions with 22 across the 10 games, but that is still an average of two per game which is simply not good enough.  Three were for not given second yellow cards, 13 were for not given straight red cards, 5 were penalty incidents and the last was an incorrect goal.

Once again the incorrect decisions outnumber the correct ones by a ratio of two to one.

Referee of the Week with no wrong Important Decision – All referees made at least one wrong Important Decision so there is no award this week, however honourable mentions should go to Neil Swarbrick who only got one Important Decision wrong.  Anthony Taylor, Craig Pawson, Graham Scott and Mark Clattenburg each got two Important Decisions Correct but also two Wrong.

Worst Referee of the Week with four wrong Important Decisions was Michael Oliver (two straight red cards and two penalties).

3: Games where the referee arguably affected the result of the game

Mark Clattenburg – Arsenal v Tottenham  The match finished as a one all draw but we feel that Tottenham should have been reduced to 10 men in Min 44 with Wanyama dismissed for a second yellow card for an off the ball assault on Walcott.  At the time Arsenal were ahead by one goal to nil and we feel it highly probable that Arsenal would have made their player advantage count in the second half.

4: Lucky Players who should have been sent off but weren’t

  • Straight Red Cards (should be missing the next three games) Kone (Sunderland), King (Bournemouth), Arfield (Burnley), Navas (Man City), Noble (West Ham), Amrabat (Watford), Holebas (Watford), Ibrahimović (United), Dawson (West Brom), Coleman (Everton), Bolasie (Everton) and Tadic (Southampton)
  • Two Yellow Cards (should be missing the next game) Pineaar (Sunderland), Allen (Stoke) and Wanyama (Tottenham)
  • Villain of the Week – This week there are a number of serious contenders for this award – frankly they all should be banned for far more than three games.  Zlatan Ibrahimović for a cowardly assault on Fer;  Nordin Amrabat for a studs up challenge on Firminho; Dusan Tadic for an awful challenge on the Hull No 25 and Wanyama for two deliberate elbows and a series of poor and late challenges.  Really you can take your pick but for me the prize should go to Ibrahimović

15 comments to Referee Appointments and Results Matchweek #11 complete with video evidence

  • MickHazel

    Walter why no mention of the not given penalty for the most blatant of shirt pulls by Vertonghen on Kos.
    From your match report….
    ‘And also how on earth Vertonghen getting away with the clearest shirt pulls on Koscielny’

  • Usama Zaka

    MickHazel,

    While reviewing from the available recording of the broadcast, I saw no such incident first time and also the second time. If anyone can just remind of time at that moment of the incident, then we might be able to make some post-review corrections. Even a time range will be helpful.

  • MickHazel

    Usama Zaka
    I did put a link up in the comments to a picture of the incident but can’t seem to find it now.

  • Usama Zaka

    Mick,

    Is it the Xhaka-Vertonghen Penalty (clip is provided above) where some of us might have mistaken him for Koscienly or its an entirely different on?

  • MickHazel

    Usama
    No it was not the Xhaka one, it was definitely on Kos. I found the picture on one of the other blogs I think but cannot seem to find it now. Even the BT commentators remarked on it saying the shirt pulling clamp down hasn’t lasted long.

  • WalterBroeckx

    Mick,
    I remember seeing it during the match but couldn’t fint id later on. But didn’t know the player but it looked like Koscielny.

    But we did find the shirt pull on Xhaka but unfortunately Xhaka was also holding Vertonghen so that cancelled each other out.

  • Usama Zaka

    Hmm,

    Was it in the first half or the second half?

  • Usama Zaka

    Also, was it from a set piece (corner, freekick, throw-in)?

  • MickHazel

    Usama
    1st half I think.

  • MickHazel

    I think it was from a corner.

  • Usama Zaka

    This was 1 of the other three set pieces in the first half. The other two being (XHaka-Vertonghen Incident and Spuds Own Goal). Anything in this?

    https://gfycat.com/ShyAcademicBrahmanbull

  • MickHazel

    Can’t see anything, but its difficult to see from that clip and that angle.

  • Usama Zaka

    Mick,

    That was the only other set piece I could find. maybe it was not shown in some broadcasts or maybe it didn’t happened or maybe it did happen but we don’t remember it…. The important thing from that match is that thanks to Clattenburg’s failure to hand out yellows to Wanyama in the first half cost us 2 points.

  • finsbury

    Looks like the diving elbowing cloggers feel more at home playing PGMOB Rules (ok?) Football as opposed to the more common Association Football code.

    There’s a surprise!

  • Pete

    Shirt pull on Kos was in the first half. Think from a corner. From memory sometime between minute 15 and 35? But could be wrong.
