The Untold ref review : Arsenal – Leyton Orient

By Walter Broeckx, the untold ref in the FA cup

I can now understand why we couldn’t find the ref of this game on the websites until it appeared on Ref Mason from the Everton game came back to the Emirates. But this time no Everton involved. Could he now show he can have a good game?

Min Type Text C/NC pts weight on
1 OTHER Foul from Denilson not given NC 0 0 1
1 OTHER Foul on Henderson not given NC 0 0 1

10 OTHER Foul from Henderson not given NC 0 0 1
12 OTHER Foul from Ebou C 1 1 1
14 OTHER Foul from Gibbs not given NC 0 0 1
21 OTHER Two footed tackle studs showing on Denilson nothing given NC 0 0 1
21 CARD Never let such fouls go without a card NC 0 0 2

42 CARD Denilson came late and should have gotten a yellow card NC 0 0 2
43 GOAL Again nothing wrong with the goal. Nice shot. C 1 3 3
44 OTHER Little push from Chamakh in the back of a defender given C 1 1 1

45 CARD Chorley gets a yellow card for this tackle C 1 2 2
46 OTHER Foul given against Chamakh C 1 1 1
51 OTHER Foul against Squilacci C 1 1 1
54 OTHER Foul against Squilacci not given NC 0 0 1
55 OTHER Foul from Gibbs given C 1 1 1
61 PENALTY Gibbs is brought down in the penalty area. The Leyton Orient player pulled his shirt and kicked his feet. No doubt about that. C 1 3 3
61 GOAL A hattrick for Bendtner and again nothing wrong C 1 3 3
64 OTHER Offside from LO C 1 1 1
70 OTHER Foul from Chamakh C 1 1 1
74 OTHER Foul on Miguel C 1 1 1
75 GOAL A rarity, a goal from Clichy. Nothing wrong with that. Smiles all over the place by the Arsenal players. C 1 3 3
78 OTHER Foul from Clichy C 1 1 1
79 CARD Clichy gets a yellow card for this. It was his second foul in one attack and so the ref could give him a yellow card for this. C 1 2 2
79 OTHER Dangerous tackle from Cox from LO C 1 1 1
79 CARD Certainly a yellow card C 1 2 2
81 OTHER Foul on Wilshere not given NC 0 0 1
88 OTHER Froul given against Nasri???? Why? This looked a bit of trying to give LO a bit of an helping hand NC 0 0 1
90 OTHER Foul given against Denilson C 1 1 1
90 OTHER Foul given against Chamakh C 1 1 1
90 OTHER Offside from LO c 1 1 1
TOTAL 31 46 60
% 72,09% 76,67%
CARDS 4 6 66,67%
PENALTY 1 1 100,00%
GOAL 5 5 100,00%
OTHER 5 6 83,33%
TOTAL 15 18 83,33%

So on the big decisions he had a very good game this time. I would suggest you keep this in mind when we see him again in the EPL. Don’t say: well he just is useless. No he showed today that he can do a good game. Be it a rather easy game but he sure made most of the calls right this time.

He only missed 3 fouls on Arsenal players and Dean in the CC final missed almost 15 fouls.  So he did what a ref should do and that is be unbiased in this game.  And certainly when it came to the big decisions he was spot on.

So a good game from ref Mason this time. In fact the things he missed or did not give where most of the time the small things.

  • Just goes to show why refs should declare their allegiances. That way they’ll on be appointed for neutral games.

    I guess that means more recruitment.

  • Dark Prince

    So who’s d ref of sunderland game??

  • RedGooner

    The only thing that worries me is you pointed out yourself Walter in meaningless cup games they are usualy Ref’d fair.
    Its the finals or BIG matches like the one comming up that things take a change for the worst.

  • walter

    REdgooner, this is also my big worry and something that can be seen in the total scores of the refs during the season and the cup games

    Like I said before: in the cup games you only need one game to tilt the final outcome (in the final) and in the EPL you need more bad refs and bad decisions. And unfortunatly this is showing in the numbers

  • Johnny Deigh

    The referee for the Sunderland match is the relatively inexperienced Anthony Taylor from Greater Manchester.

  • Shard

    @Johnny Deigh

    I was happy reading the relatively inexperienced bit since I thought he might just be uninitiated into the clique… But then you go on and say Greater Manchester… Now I don’t know 🙂

    But we have to win this match.. It’s vital. The ref simply cannot be allowed to get in our way.

  • menace

    The tackle at 45 mins was a red card offence as it was uncontrolled with studs showing. It was a bone breaker.

  • Ugandan Goon

    @Johnny deigh
    i was reading his ref profile page on refworld’s website and he seemed alright but so does dowd, so we’ll just have to wait and see!
    Mightn’t he be a revelation a’la Siam Massey?

  • Donnyfan1

    Spot on Walter- and well done Mr Mason. By my reckoning you are nearly twice as good as Nellie Dean (a much sung about lady in WW1 times!!) And pass on our regards to our favourite Yorkshireman (since Radford, Sunderland and Rix) — a ref no less– by the name of Atkinson. No brown noser–he!! He is apparently not on SAF’s chrismas card list. What would his score have been Walter? Let us see how fair Mr Riley’s young-fellow-me lad appointment from Greater Manchester is. As if we didn’t know- we have seen once again how ref’s decisions can easily define the result of a football match. But what all football lovers want most of all- IS FAIRNESS!!

  • Ugandan Goon

    bloomin’ eck, where have i heard that this week?- MUTV thats where!
