Ref Watch

Post by whiteswan » Mon Jan 14, 2019 7:49 pm

Watched Dermott Gallgher on Ref Watch this morning. According to Dermott....
ALIOSKI - The Ref was correct to give a penalty. In his words "I don't like to criticise linesmen because they have such a difficult job. Linesman got it wrong he was clearly onside, but at this level he shouldn't be making an error of that magnitude"
PABLO - "Definate foul ( penalty) but when you look at where the ref was standing from this camera angle, his vision is blocked by the Derby player and he just thinks that the Derby players' foot hits the grass"
BPF - For his raised foot in the face of the Derby player. " A penalty and a red card. The referee's vision is masked by the Derby forward, but BPF quite clearly turns his boot" (actually he did after I watched it 3 times this morning with Mr Swan)
JANSSON - Zilch! Zero! Nowt mentioned or shown. I can only assume that because the ref saw the 'incidents', I'll call them GBH, it wasn't deemed controversial enough for debate. Pity as it was appalling refereeing of the first order :x

I loved how the presenter said "now for something rare a penalty for the home side at Elland Road." :-D I wonder if he is a Leeds fan or he just reads all our tweets. :lol:

I actually missed that SG because I was fast forwarding looking for Leeds :shock: so I've just watched that bit again and it's my fave Sky presenter Rob Wotton. Brilliant that he said what we all know :) but, I've just googled him and he's a Chelski fan :(

I have witnessed some appalling referees particularly at ER this season

One can't help thinking that the refs are under certain instructions from Mr Harvey :chair:
