Robert Jones - Manchester City v Chelsea
« on: Sun 08 Jan 2023 17:08 »
Interesting first 30 minutes for Jones. First of all, Chelsea’s Havertz left his foot in on a challenge in the Man City area and was a little fortunate not to be cautioned.

Then Chelsea appealed for a foul, possible DOGSO, but there didn’t seem to be any contact on the forward and this was dismissed by Jones and VAR John Brooks.

A possible handball shout in the Chelsea area which Jones had a reasonable view of but play continued while this was checked. When the ball went dead, Robert Jones was recommended for an OFR by John Brooks and it was pretty clear that Havertz handled the ball. Good use of technology here and the correct decision reached.

Jones does have presence and quality as a referee but I feel he has been a little wishy washy so far. That early caution if he deemed it so might have helped him control wise. Just an opinion.

I agree with umperlan he has presence being 6’4 but he looks really weak out there …. How Harvarz got away with that stamp early without seeing yellow, then he allowed Chelsea players to berate him fingers pointing at him without even a whistle and a talking to ….. Good VAR use by John Brooks but again how does he miss the handball it was so clear … 3/0 city so he might escape criticism due to the score line but I do feel he looks out of depth so far

Agreed he is 10 yards away from penalty incident, looking straight at it. it’s one of the most blatant penalties of the season. I’m sorry but if you can’t see that you shouldn’t be on the FIFA list!
Not a lot else to do as city’s reserves dismantle the worst Chelsea side in 30 years

Correct on the second penalty although Foden was certainly looking for it. However, he really shouldn't have needed VAR for the first penalty

If making mistakes barred you from fifa we wouldn’t have any fifa officials from any country. Handball has always been easier to pick out on tv than at full speed live so I wouldn’t want to over critique for that alone.
My views are my own and not that of rate the ref .

I think Jones comes in for a fair bit of stick on RTR; I happen to like his style of officiating. I thought he did perfectly OK this afternoon. It was not as assured a performance as Gillett in the Cardiff/Leeds match but fine for me. Perhaps he does need to up his presence and profile a bit on the pitch. Authority is an interesting concept, I become less and less sure that it can be manufactured, in any form of public life, I believe it's a natural attribute.
