Matthew Donohue Sheffield United v Blackburn
« on: Wed 23 Feb 2022 21:16 »
Excellent red card.

Very good penalty decision even though the keeper was off his line when he saved it.

This is proving quite a test for him with the temperature of the game getting hotter by the minute.
Compulsive viewing.

What an exciting finish with a very late winner. I thought he started the game less than confidently, but got better as it heated up. At the end of it all I thought Matthew did a very good job in a hostile environment.

Interesting game and terrific ending. I can well imagine feelings being high and emotions exploding amongst the home supporters. Mr Donohue did very well imho and the red card nailed on. Penalty should have been retaken but I would not expect such a close decision to be given without VAR (keeper came off his line just as the kick was being taken).

Is this a joke post?
He was atrocious from minute one to minute 95.
Whether you agree or not with his key decisions ( I donít, they were blatantly wrong in my opinion ) his game management was pathetic.

How can you not agree with the red card?! The commentator was unsure at first, but even he agreed the referee had no choice! Looks as though you have your ďBladeĒ blinkers onÖ.

Like I said, itís irrelevant whether you agree with the ďbig decisionsĒ or not. I can see why it was given.

Itís everything else. The game management, player management, the little fouls, the knowing when to let things go, the throw ins and goal kicks, the management of peopleís attitudes, the keeping your cool under pressure, 99.9% of the game.

And it was all atrocious. Yet again. Every time Iíve seen him live it has been the case.

Well itís all about opinions , my opinion was Donohue was excellent remained calm and in control throughout both the penalty and Red Card decisions were spot on the latter was dealt with superbly amid the mini scuffle  he doesnít have the best running style similar to Rob Jones but he gets the job done

"I can see why it was given" which is a complete contradiction to "they were blatantly wrong in my opinion" in your previous post!

No way - really??!!

Was it perhaps the straight leg, studs first, over the top challenge with no attempt to play the ball, made at pace (excessive force) that endangered the safety of the opponent?

If you are going to try and assess the performance of a referee - particularly one involving a side you support - I would suggest if you want any shred of credibility, you realise that a referees core responsibility is the safety of the players. He did that with the red card - no question.

I did think some of his decision making was a tad erratic at times and there was one caution in particular for a United player I didn't even think a foul, but.... on an evening when the players made it extremely difficult for him, he got the big decisions correct in my opinion.

Your crass comments do neither the referee or indeed yourself any favours......

I watched the highlights, and wow what a game. Matt Donohue didn't seem to be out of control during the highlights. Perfect positioning for the penalty call, did not rush it and took his time to think but good decision.
Red card is a no brainer and was a horrific challenge.

Iíve really liked Donohue when Iíve seen him. I watched the highlights of this game and without doubt he got the two big calls spot on. Another thing I like about him is that he most certainly doesnít get intimidated by fervent home crowds. Heíll stand firm and give exactly what he sees. Iíve noticed that on quite a few occasions this season, and thatís an excellent trait in a referee.
Good luck to him, a really decent ref IMHO

There was a great offside flag early in the game - credit goes to the assistant for that one. There was one incident which did do me a bamboozle. Two players go for a bouncing ball, same distance from the ball, both have foot up. It seems in these circumstances, the player that gets hurt receives the sympathy vote and the uninjured player the yellow. We see it quite often - in rugby they now recognise a fair contest for a ball rather than get the cards out, and imho this was another of those incidents and a card should not have been given (or given to both of them!). It was a United player who got booked....

I kind of think you should have had a nap and looked at the game on tv before writing your ill advised comments!

He refereed a difficult game very well other than for me not cautioning Sander Berge a second time for quite deliberately not looking at the ball and barging into an opponent.
