08:01 Granit Xhaka (Arsenal) Idrissa Gana Gueye (Everton) Xhaka tripped down Gana with a sliding tackle on the counter attack but Everton maintained their attack and kept moving forward. The referee correctly played an advantage.

17:16 Phil Jagielka (Everton) Francis Coquelin (Arsenal) Coquelin tried to dribble past the last man defending the Everton goal Jagielka and was brought down with a mistimed standing tackle just outside the box. The referee correctly gave a foul.

 

But this should have been a straight red card against Jagielka he committed a clear foul by being the last defending player. The right back and the left back were well ahead and wide on the field. The referee made the wrong decision and gave Jagielka the lesser punishment of a yellow card.

1 (FOUL)
41:27 James McCarthy (Everton) Francis Coquelin (Arsenal) McCarthy lunged in from on Coquelin with a very late sliding tackle, long after Coquelin played the pass.

 

It is a deliberate kick on the achilles from behind with the ball (when he kicks out) already meters away: a red card as kicking a player hard on the achilles is using excessive force without any chance of playing the ball. The foul was made with the other foot than the one he challenged for the ball. The referee failed to give the red card for the second time and instead gave a lesser punishment of a yellow card.

Mark Clattenburg was the ref for this match.

And a typical Clattenburg performance as we are more and more getting used to. And that is not a compliment.

A first miss was a kick on Xhaka from behind in the opening minute to set the stage. A kick from behind on the Achilles should have been a yellow card. Then giving a throw in in favour of Everton (again Xhaka involved) when it was Barkley who kicked it out. 68 seconds on the clock and two wrong decisions against Arsenal. The tone was set.

Let us move on to the Arsenal goal and what happened before. Jagielka brought down Coquelin and Jagielka was the last defender. A foul outside the penalty area, Coquelin would have been one on one with the keeper. So it should have been a red card. No, said Clattenburg and he then pointed at the Everton right back to show Monreal that there still was a defender covering. You can see Clattenburg point in the direction of the right back in one of the clips. But when we freeze the image and then you have to look at the circles I added to the picture and look at the position of that right back. Here is the picture.

And what do you see? Well the right back Clattenburg used as an excuse to not give a red card was something between 10-15 meters away from the incident. Now he might be Superman in disguise or maybe Spiderman but no human being would be that quick to come to recover and stop Coquelin from taking a shot at goal.

So Clattenburg was either incompetent or…. well fill in yourself. But he sure didn’t make the correct decision. And by doing this (look at the picture)

 

he showed that he was completely wrong.  And minutes later Jagielka showed clear dissent against the assistant referee and best ref of England and the world Clattenburg allowed it to happen…. that should have been Jagielka his second yellow card (if we take the first yellow card that was given). Not for Clattenburg who let his assistant down. Poor from the referee. You always stand up for your assistants. Clattenburg didn’t. Very Poor.

The match then continued with Everton players kicking left, right and centre against all the Arsenal players with only the worst things to be called. I’m not going to mention them all as there were too many of those incidents. McCarthy came in short before half time with a dangerous attack on the Achilles of Coquelin and again the red card stayed in the ref’s pocket.  No wonder some Arsenal players were furious with this kind of non-refereeing from Clattenburg. Where are the days we were happy as Clattenburg seemed to be the only ref who was willing to clamp down on wild tackles and lunges….. Went to too many concerts I think…..

As a result the first half score was only 54.5% and 46.8% (Weighted) Extremely Poor. Minutely better than tossing a coin.

The second half was a bit better. Luckily. But still too many fouls escaped the ref. As we can’t talk about them in detail we just will get on to the main things. Everton second goal. The ball was headed out by an Everton player and the ref gave a corner. And after that Everton scored. If Clattenburg had made the first correct decision on the corner the goal would never have happened. So as a result of a wrong decision from Clattenburg Everton could score their winning goal.

And things weren’t over yet. Oh no. Mirallas (a brainless chicken as we call him in Belgium) seemed to pull Bellerin in the penalty area when Bellerin was chasing the ball. It would have been a typical Mirallas foul but as the TV companies were too busy with showing nothing they forgot to give a replay of the incident so we have to give it as a correct decision.

But in the last seconds Mirallas (again) kicked, missed the ball but made contact with the leg of Alexis. Penalty one would think… oh no this is Clattenburg who has to pay back his paymasters for all the finals he was allowed to do over the last year. And so he did what we are used to. No penalty for Arsenal and Everton won the match.

The score in the second half was 73.7% and 67.5% (Weighted) Slightly better but still bad.

The total score over the whole match was  62.7% and 55.9% (Weighted) Very poor.

There were two correct major decisions. One was the non-penalty on Bellerin by Mirallas which is added in blue colour due to looking like a penalty but no replay shown. Other was the second yellow card against Jagielka in the 90+ min, , which was only his second yellow card as a lesser punishment only due to the referee failing to give him a red card very early in the game. Refer to minute 17:16

There were 4 wrong major decisions. McCarthy should have been sent off for a wild lunge in min 41. Jagielka should have been sent off for a last man foul on Coquelin Min 18. Everton scored an illegal goal in Min 86 as the corner kick given was wrong. And finally in Min 94 Arsenal were denied a clear penalty on Sanchez.

Well there you go, we all can talk long about how bad our performance was…but that doesn’t necessarily means that the referee should do the same against us.

Finally bias score.  The “worlds best referee” managed to make 22 errors in this match. And not surprisingly 19 went against Arsenal and 3 against Everton. A bit unbalanced don’t you agree Mark?

    Yet another game where we were blatantly robbed.
    How must Wenger feel having to put up with years of being cheated out of points.

  • OlegYch

    now take a look at what dean does when tottenham player is touched outside of the box https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3D5YXBswC8s

  • Gord

    Uncharacteristically, Clattenburg gave an interview on this game.

    http://untold-arsenal.com/archives/58701#comment-901148

    He said that the only mistake he made, was the corner kick.

    Which I gather means that all the rest was on purpose, as it wasn’t by mistake? This could be difference of opinion as to what is and isn’t a foul. Point of view might be involved.

  • SamuelAkinsolaAdebosin

    Thanks for exposing Clattenburg’s and his 2 assistants clandestine referring against Arsenal away to Everton a few weeks ago. In as much as Arsenal have to put up with this kind of referring and live with it, the Gunners must also find a way in this kind of anti-Arsenal referring match to negate the match referee cynical referring the match against them by putting away most of the chances that fell to them in the game to have the upper hand in the final score-line of the match.

    Arsenal have been finding it difficult to score many goals in their PL games as against Tottenham Hotspur who have been finding it better than us to score many goals in their PL games. But at Yesterday, the goal difference of both Arsenal and Tottenham is showing Spurs have only 1 goal difference advantage over Arsenal in the table.

    This handicap of not scoring many goals regularly by the Gunners in most of their PL games MUST be overcome at the Vitality Stadium tomorrow as they battle Bournemouth team for 3 points collection.

    Le Prof SHOULD do a Gunners team rotation for this our away match to Bournemouth. So that the Gunners will be in optimum condition to perform optimally in the game. Any starting Gunner who has played in our last Crystal Palace game at the Ems yesterday who cannot efficiently play 2 matches in 3 days due to young age and game fatigue should be started from the bench. But those 3 Gunners subs who were brought on in the 2nd half of the Palace game can be started along with others for the Bournemouth match for enhanced game performance by Arsenal.

    My unrivalled starts for our away match against AFC Bournemouth which can only be rivalled by Le Prof’s starts are:
    Cech
    Bellerin Paulista Koscielny Monreal
    Coquelin Ramsey
    Sanchez Ozil Chamberlain
    Giroud.

    My bench:
    Ospina Niles Holding Mustafi Xhaka Walcott Perez.

    I suspect Walcott will be back into the match day squad hence I’ve dropped Adelaide. But I will advice Le Prof to start both Walcott & Mustafi from the bench. But if necessary he can bring them on in the 2nd half of the match.

    For their been inept in front of goal, Sunderland were wasteful for not converting that break away chance they had in the game to take the lead in game against Liverpool.

    An excellent review.

    A few years ago Clattenburg seemed to be the least biased of the refs, indeed at times he seemed to be fair. Sometime in the last two seasons it appears that someone has really got to him – or has got something on him – because he has degenerated quickly into one of the worst of the many anti Arsenal refs.

    Everton have been a physical team for quite some time, but with the advent of Koeman they have degenerated into Stoke like thugs – esp against Arsenal. In this match they ran around like untiring blue assed flies – as if they were fuelled by the Vardy pre match concoction.
    Baines, Miralles and esp McCarthy were and are thugs – even Jagielka – for whom I used to have some respect – joined in the anti Arsenal thuggery. Shame on them and shame on Koeman! Shame on Clattenburg for being part of it.

    Strangely, against the Dippers – the next match for Everton – they were much less aggressive. I wonder why?

  • SamuelAkinsolaAdebosin

    The sitting deep Black Cats team defending resolutely and counter attacking occasionally have given a good account of themselves alround in this their match against Liverpool. But can Sunderland keep playing at this high tempo in the 2nd half of this match without switched off momentarily in the game to stop the sustained high pressing team Liverpool from capitalizing on any Sunderland switching off in the game to score and win the game?

  • OlegYch

    livepoodle scores from offside

  • OlegYch

    mane intentionally handles the ball in the box, gets a yellow
    guess sunderland doesn’t need any help from refs, unlike tottenham

  • SamuelAkinsolaAdebosin

    I said it, Sunderland have switched off in the game to concede the lead to Liverpool. Thus denying Arsenal gaining 2 points on Liverpool in table. We can only hope now for something to emerge out of no where in favour of Sunderland to give them an equalising goal. While I am yet to post my comment, something out no where has emerged out of no where in favour of Sunderland via a 2nd penalty to them in game to get the equalising goal. 87 minutes into the match, it’s increasing looking Arsenal could gain those 2 points on Liverpool. Desperate time the Stadium of Light.

  • OlegYch

    can and firminho handle the ball, the ref doesn’t pay attention

  • OlegYch

    i remember one game late in the last season when leicester players handled the ball four or five times, none was flagged by ref

  • SamuelAkinsolaAdebosin

    And that’s that at the Stadium of Light. Arsenal will remain 3rd in the table with a win over Bournemouth tomorrow and will also gain 2 points on Liverpool in the table as we also dethrown Man City from the 3rd place they are temporarily occupying in the table.

    Dean the corrupt strikes again – in favour of the Manures – surprise surprise!

  • OlegYch

    sorry, can’t find the Barkley foul in the report, that must have been a different game

  • OlegYch

    well that certainly was a less dangerous tackle than the one on Ramsey in leicester game

  • Josif

    Dean is really an amazing referee.

    I will celebrate when he ends his career and I don’t care which way his career will end.

    the first chance MU gets in half an hour is from offside

    On Sky Sports Niall Quinn & Alan Smith were very critical of Dean – not just for his decision today – but his decision making in general. It will be interesting to see if they “disappear” from Sky Sports quite soon!

  • bjtgooner

    Now an offside goal for the Manures – what a corrupt league – one that is crying out for the use of technology to remove the chances of “errors” – but that route is consistently refused by those in authority – those who are “content” with the present PGMO farce!

  • Gord

    FIFA.com has an article about Howard Webb being involved in picking recipients for the Fair Play award, and what an honour it is.

    http://www.fifa.com/the-best-fifa-football-awards/news/y=2016/m=12/news=webb-it-s-about-doing-things-the-right-way-2861298.html

    I really don’t think after however many years of 😈 Mike Riley and that other twat before him, that anyone who was part of the Select Group has any clue what fair play is. Even if it jumped up and kicked them in the groin. No sense saying testicles, none of them (male PGMO employees/contractors) have any.

    Mike Dean was suspended from league games over betting.

  • JamesO

    Mike Dean is a disgrace. He wasn’t even looking at the challenge as it happened.
    I typed into Google ‘Mike Dean cheat’ and the third result was an open letter from Walter to Mike Dean in an article from Untold ‘Mike Dean: the referee, the man, the history, the scandals’.
    This was from September 2009. This is how long we have been screwed over. The premier league is becoming a joke. I for one would love to to know who is behind it, as it is obvious now…

  • Pat

    Your points about Clattenburg and how he has changed, and the likely reasons why, are well made, Walter. Terrible stuff!

  • bjtgooner

    Good links above. So both Dean & Clattenburg have some form of “previous”: most interesting!

  • Gord

    Something stewing in my head, and it isn’t welsh rarebit.

    Screwy decisions didn’t start with 😈 Mike Riley. What’s before? I think before goes back to the start of the EPL. There was that little hiccup at the beginning as to how many teams to put in the EPL, so if the PGMO nonsense goes back to the end of that hiccup, I think that is close enough to go back to the start of the EPL.

    I don’t want to go wading through old versions of Wikipedia data, the current page doesn’t even say who was manager before this idiot 😈 Mike Riley. I think it was Hackett, so even though he is in the medja now, I don’t think he is part of the solution because he is still part of the problem. If nothing else Hackett thinks that coming out of a game with serious bruising still doesn’t indicate that any foul occurred (you have to be a _MAN_).

    There was a reason to look at Fat Sam recently. I look at his record, and I just see lots of mediocre. Mediocre at managing, medicore at playing. Why does the medja worship him?

    In the past, I’ve looked at SAF. What in his record as a player or manager before the EPL started, points to his success at ManU in the EPL? And yet, there are people who think he is God. I don’t think there is anything substantially different between SAF and Fat Sam in their records in this regard.

    Something about the start of the EPL is screwy. It might not be just a single thing. Did ManU loan money to football (The FA and/or league) to start the EPL? Did SAF know of skeletons in the closet of many referees, or just the referee manager? Was the original intention of the EPL that it would be a _MANS_ league, and hence more robust than football elsewhere in the world? Are all these answers sitting in some sealed contract from 25 or so years ago?

    Is the answer to how you spell corruption, “T”, “h”, “e”, “F”, “A”?

  • para

    Thin insidious practice of the refs being incompetent or to be more exact, deliberately manipulative.
    It seems to be getting worse with every game played and is well beyond a joke now.

    If TV and media were really independent they would be all over these mistakes and blowing their horns like the “end of the world alarm”, but they actually support and hide these events to viewers.

  • para

    Jagielka Red002
    Williams clearly tried to kick Coq and kicked his own player, then Jagielka went in on Coq and stood on his foot.

    This was one of the attacks on Arsenal players to injure them.

    Sometimes i wonder if players from teams are “bought” to try to injure an upcoming opponent, but there is so much wrong going on that it is starting to need more and more exposure.

    Still, what do we really expect in the world? It is clear that corruption starts at the very top and filters down through all aspects of life.

  • Florian

    Gord,

    Keith Hackett was indeed the previous chief of PiGMOB, and was removed following pressure from SAF, who was unhappy that “not enough decisions” were going his way.

  • Menace

    Dean’s display is only a drop in the corrupt ocean of PGMOL & FA. There are several instances of offside goals & red cards that were not given this season as in last season.

    Leicester were presented the league by corrupt officiating. Untold has highlighted the strange corrupt delivery by a select set of officials that gifted them game after game.

    The use of nicotine & caffeine as a stimulant ‘hidden’ in a blue bandage was ignored & can been seen to make a difference in one players stamina.

    This season the 2 Manchester clubs are being allowed offside goals like confetti. Red cards to Costa & Rojo have been avoided like the tax these corrupt bastards evade. There is nothing sporting in the football that these teams & organisations are involved in. It is total robbery in the front of billions of viewers with no recourse to law.

  • Al

    Other sides are allowed to score offside goals at the rate of one per week, struggling to recall when we were beneficiaries of such generous “errors”, just one only.. never mind the ones allowed against us.

  • Goonermikey

    @ Josif 5:41

    I too would celebrate when Dean retires but I would wager that Riley will retire at the same time and Dean will take over at the PIGMOB. More years of the same then…….and if it isn’t Dean it’ll be Atkinson……or Clattenburg or one of the other clowns posing as premiership referees

  • Rich

    Gord. Refs only turned professional in 2001 so no pgmol before that.

    To me, the very best you can say about it all is that it is an exceptionally dirty business in which the supremely ruthless can gain huge advantages. Basically, I think it might be possible to have a system which operates exactly as a corrupt one would without involving actual corruption- brown envelopes, illegal activity, clear instructions to cheat and break rules.

    Riley becoming boss of Pgmol is the big one. How did it happen? Who chose him? Most importantly, why was Hackett’s reign cut short?

    Mark Halsey’s book makes clear Hackett was sacked. He suggests in the book that prominent managers from the north were unhappy with him- mentioning two, Allardyce and, yep, the good lord Ferguson.

    He also says a number of times that the ultimate bosses, of him and Pgmol are the premier league. That doesn’t square with how it’s meant to be, as all the pgmob literature suggests their board is made up of chief executives of Fa, football League, Premier league and one non-executive member.. but that’s what he says. Ultimately, Premier League rule pgmol.

    Halsey is too arrogant and sure of his own professionalism and integrity, and those around him to even realise their could be anything amiss- he proudly lists his favourite managers as Ferguson, Allardyce, mourinho, Moyes (all those who coincidentally respond most to his texts and emails and are occasionally generous with charitable causes he is- involved in) or that there could be anything wrong with a manager or two getting their wish and having the boss of referees removed.

    A grim, dirty picture. Here’s a look at Ferguson talking about Hackett not long before he was removed. The hypocrisy is amazing even for Ferguson.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/7285393.stm

    I’d be amazed if Portsmouth on the day in question were allowed to get away with half of what Utd did in game 50. But there you go, Ferguson complains, and soon after the man who presided over the biggest injustice in premier league history, in Ferguson’s favour, winds up as the new man in charge.

    Also on my little trawl today I notice the original intention was for there to be the more sensible number of 24 pgmol refs at the outset. They wouldn’t have decided that randomly; it would have been because it was obvious that was a sound number to use.

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/1386841.stm

  • Norman14

    This week has seen a lot of unsavory incidents involving officials. Apart from the 3 or 4 obvious ones at State Aid yesterday, we also saw both Klopp and Guadiola having uncharacteristic pops at the men in charge. Now I see that Sanga has been given an ultimatum by the FA to explain himself after saying on Instagram that it felt like “10 against 12”. I’m sure West Ham collectively feel the same.

    Why can’t player question what goes on in games? Isn’t it their right? Or has the fascism that appears in our government, spread to other areas? The FA are sticking the finger up at the government committee investigating them, and that should at least invite some media investigation.

    Just shows that the media, the FA, PGMOL and the government are all as bent as S shaped beds that they sleep in!
