Ipswich v Norwich - Rob Jones
« on: Sun 02 Sep 2018 18:05 »

That rarest of sightings today.

A referee at Portman Road who was both even-handed and competent.

Presumably Tim Robinson, who failed miserably to exhibit either of those two basic qualities last Ipswich home game, was told to come along with the numbers board and watch carefully to see how it should be done.


(Nothing there today to change my opinion formed when I first saw him a few years ago, that he is destined for the very top.)

Best referee in the Championship by a country mile.

I first saw him when my team, Argyle, got beaten 4-0 at home and I immediately thought he is classy. His approach is like no other, calm and relaxed, which immediately gets the respect he deserves from players. He will be the UK's next big thing, give him a few years.

Ipswich do seem to get all the dross at Portman Road donít they! However Jones clearly isnít in the same ilk as the likes of Robinson and Davies. Iíd happily put ten bob on Jones being SG1 next season.

It really doesnít help Ipswich that the southern based SG2 referees are Robinson, Davies, Stroud and now Ward.

As for Mr Jones yesterday, he used the classic opportunity to have lengthy words to a player from each side early on and took it from there.  Ipswich had a lame penalty appeal during the first half which I was some distance from but I thought that it was a dive from the loanee Jordan Graham. It was no surprise when he awarded Norwich the free kick and cautioned Graham.  It was a very assured performance and Mr Jones is much closer to appearing in the Premier League than the two teams in this match.

It was good to see Mr Robinson get involved and split up two players during an altercation during the second half.  It was in his previous fourth official appearance at Portman Road that he somehow missed Loovens assault on McGoldrick.

In fairness I don't think Loovens deliberately did McGoldrick last season, and rather us Wednesday fans would tell you that he just got too old and slow and made a mess of it.  Still a blatant red card though that he missed.

Same referee that sent off Forestieri for simulation at Hull when Dawson studded him in the shin.  Dawson even said after he thought he was in trouble and would be walking.  I'm yet to see a game refereed by Tim Robinson where I have been impressed by him, he strikes me as the archetypal manufactured referee and doesn't really know what to do when things start going against him.  As opposed to Rob Jones, who looks like a total natural.

Perfectly summed up rustyref about the relative merits and demerits of Messrs Jones and Robinson

I saw Rob referee Wigan v Portsmouth a couple of years ago and I was massively impressed with him as was the assessor that day Uriah Ronnie. Rob is destined for the very top and good luck to him.

Does anyone know how old him and Robinson are out of interest?

Robinson is 34. Think Jones is around 27
