New referee research is valuable but is still fundamentally flawed

Yet at the same time FA statistics record a reduction in assaults on match officials and reductions in dissent, abusive language and threatening behaviour.   But there are repeated suggestions that cases are not being reported because of the low chance of success when the matters are heard – not least because the procedures for hearing such cases are deeply flawed.

Keith Hackett does have a reason for promoting this issue now as he has a new book out, and maybe that is why the approach we are seeing is so biased.  A fulsome review of what is going on with refereeing in England which incorporates issues such as the totally different way in which refereeing is organised in England from every other country, is needed needed.   We need to investigate the effect of the independent county system of running local football which no other country has, and the ultra-secrecy around the running of professional referees by PGMO, which again no other country has.

Only then can we start working out why it is all going so wrong in England.

    To say the least, does Jonathan Moss bias refereeing against Arsenal intended to favour Tottenham who played against Arsenal in last Wednesday’s Carabao Cup quarterfinal match at the Ems which possibly could had cost Arsenal a semifinal match in the competition buttress the point being raised in this article posting?

    I watched Jonathan Moss, the centre referee in the match on my TV deliberately denied Arsenal 3 clear cut penalties in the match, one to Monreal, Mkhitaryan twice and AMN once in the match when Monreal’s leg was intentionally pulled back in the box by the opposition player to stop getting to the ball. And when AMN was violently pushed down in the box and when Mkhi’ was twice violently hacked and blasted down in the box. Not to mention so many free kick calls in dangerous positions which Spurs committed in the match against Arsenal but referee Jonn Moss ignored all to give them to Arsenal. Which left me with a question after the match to ask Jonathan Moss if he had aided and abetted Spurs to beat Arsenal in the match. But I was unable to do so. But for how long will the Pgmo anti-Arsenal match win agenda continues to reign? Has it not reigned enough?
