By Ref Reviewer 03
As we work from across the world sometimes there are delays when doing the ref reviews and before we can get it published.
So here we have a review of Chelsea – Norwich and the ref in charge was Mike Jones.
|4||YELLOW||Holt||C||Holt shoved Terry into Hilario, a possible booking, however Terry stopped very suddenly to protect the ball which was still outside the area. Ref’s decision not to give a card is okay||1||2|
|6||GOAL||C||Bosingwa – goal okay||1||3|
|9||OTHER||Hoolahan||Bosingwa||NC||Hoolahan tugged on Bosingwa after losing possession||0||0|
|18||OTHER||Drogba||Barnett||C||Good call by the ref not to play advantage as Drogba had tripped up a defender deep in his own half||1||1|
|35||OTHER||De Laet||Drogba||C||Tripping – Chelsea were mad that advantage wasn’t played, but Torres was offside||1||1|
|36||OTHER||Bosingwa||C||Raised boot to block clearance, made slight contact with defender’s leg||1||1|
|36||YELLOW||Bosingwa||C||Dangerous play, deserves a yellow||1||2|
|41||YELLOW||Crofts||C||Trip from behind broke up Chelsea attack||1||2|
|42||OTHER||Terry||Martin||C||Barged into Norwich player||1||1|
|56||OTHER||Torres||Barnett||C||stuck his boot out catching opponent||1||1|
|56||YELLOW||Torres||C||Dangerous play, deserves a yellow||1||2|
|57||OTHER||Tierney||Ramires||NC||Shoving – not given||0||0|
|57||OTHER||Ivanovic||Norwich player||NC||Holding – not given||0||0|
|58||OTHER||Pilkington||Bosingwa||NC||Pulled back his arm, dispossessed – not given||0||0|
|58||OTHER||Naughton||Drogba||C||Naughton tugged on Drogba as he was going past, ref saw there was no advantage and gave the foul||1||1|
|63||GOAL||C||Holt – onside, goal okay||1||3|
|64||OFFSIDE||Drogba||C||Drogba got needlessly injured on this play as he was already called for offside. The keeper made an honest attempt to play the ball, unfortunately for Drogba though as he went off concussed on a stretcher.||1||1|
|72||OTHER||Holt||Mikel||NC||Three players going for the ball – I couldn’t see the foul here||0||0|
|77||OTHER||Terry||Morrison||NC||Terry grabbed at Morrison as he was going past him – not given||0||0|
|77||YELLOW||Terry||NC||This was similar to the play for which Naughton got booked in the 58th minute – not given. Where is the consistancy?||0||0|
|77||OTHER||Torres||Johnson||C||Trip from behind||1||1|
|77||RED||Torres||NC||Cynical trip from Torres from behind, nowhere near playing the ball. He should have received his 2nd yellow.||0||0|
|80||PENALTY||Ruddy||Ramires||C||Ruddy made an honest attempt at the ball but Ramires got to the ball first and the ball was still within reach when contact was made by the keeper. Correct call.||1||3|
|80||RED||Ruddy||NC||Ruddy tried to play the ball and Ramires beat him to the ball going outside and away from goal. The keeper should not have been sent off.||0||0|
|82||GOAL||C||Lampard from the spot – goal okay||1||3|
|83||OTHER||Holt||Ramires||NC||Holt pulled his arm back, Ramires dispossessed – not given||0||0|
|90+11||GOAL||C||Mata – goal okay||1||3|
|2nd half score|
|Correct calls||For Chelsea||28||65,12%|
|Total correct calls||43|
|Wrong calls||Against Chelsea||6||54,55%|
So we have seen a great first half of the ref with all the key decisions right. But then in the second half the performance dropped significantly. Thanks to his first half the final score was still okay.
Just wish to thank our ref reviewer for doing his job in very difficult circumstances and I hope things do look better in the next days.
