Millwall under investigation by the FA for crowd related issues..presumably for the booing after the teams and officials took the knee...

As far as Im concerned the Millwall fans are an utter disgrace.

Why do they continue to take the knee?

To continue to highlight and protest against racial abuse that is still so prevalent in the game & society at large.

Acknowledged, but why on one knee and why do they continue to use the 'Black Lives Matter' strapline when it has clear association with a political movement?
Why not do what Millwall and QPR are doing?
I will never get down on one knee for it, it doesn't mean that I am racist.

I'm sure everyone will agree that not taking the knee doesn't make you a racist but booing ones' that choose to do so makes some people think you were.

I think you need to educate yourself on this.  It's a movement to highlight the racial injustice in the society.  It's not a political party, it's purely a movement.  Don't get it tangle with some idiots that decided to cause chaos.


I didn't call it a political party, they have had ample opportunity to change their strap line to separate it completely, the kneeling aspect is a subservient act from the USA that disrespects the American flag and imitates the kneeling on the neck by the Police Officer on the criminal they were attempting to arrest that unfortunately and tragically led to his death.  Why is it and the black power salute being used in this country?
The fact that both Millwall and Colchester fans booed during the 'kneeling ceremony' appears to have a great level of support and has caused a change already.

Good decision, the foul continued into the penalty area.  If the official blew his whistle for the first offence/contact, that's a mistake by him in not allowing it to develop before the challenge had been completed.

General Discussion / Re: Questionable caution?
« on: Mon 07 Dec 2020 13:09 »
The Werder player who confronted him after he scored was also cautioned, was there some 'receptacles that women carry for their purses and knick knacks' that caused the cautions?

Xhaka prevented a very likely goal from Kane by committing that foul, how it went unpunished does not make any sense.  Particularly when you compare to Lo Celso's yellow for next to nothing on the half-way line.  Madness.

And Paul Tierney deciding that Pereira committed violent conduct today was an even bigger joke, what was he looking at!?!?  The same man on VAR who decided Son's "kick" on Rudiger last season was a red.  It is NOT violent conduct!

Have you not heeded the advice to be aware of the Laws before posting?
You do know/realise that you are on a Referees message board?

7
Surely whether the ball went out for a throw-in is outside the VAR guidelines?

Does it not depend on whether it's clear and obvious?

I can see why it happened, he's seen the keeper go long and immediately turns to go as he know how rapid the Man Utd forwards are.  From where Henderson hit the ball it would be extremely rare for it to go out and back in again, be he put so much whip on the ball it did just that.  It must have gone out given how much it curved and how close it landed to the touchline.

Don't see how VAR could rule on it as there was no camera close to looking down the touchline and it would have been a guess even if it was an obvious guess.  I do wonder if the 4th official could have had any input as the ball must have gone over his head.

Can they not put the offside lines longitudinally?

Despicable from the Millwall fans this afternoon, booing when the knee was taken...

What else do you expect from the vile individuals responsible.

Disagree with the booing, but why are they continuing to do it?

Crewe Alex's Perry Ng has been banned for six games for spitting water over the Cheltenham coach at the end of last Saturday's FA Cup tie which Cheltenham won 2-1 aet. In the present circumstances, I agree fully with the FA's decision and length of ban which sends out a clear message to players during the present Covid health crisis.

What a vile individual.


It was probably better that the officials didn't see him do that? If they did, would he have received a lesser sanction?

I am hearing that Monzul had a disaster towards the end of her game and lost control? Has anyone seen this or have any clips available to review?

Edy/anyone else - did you watch Pawson's match?

Finally I highly doubt it but if anyone happened to watch Hennessy's debut I'd be appreciative of any comments on his performance.

Thanks in advance!

8 cautions from the 75th minute inluding 2 in the 85th and four in the 90th.
She fell away at the end of the Nations League match I watched the other week as well...

And replaced by?

Not a snarky answer but I do have concerns about the Referees, particularly at 2A and 2B They seem to have had all individuality driven out of them in pursuit of officials who tick all the right boxes and maintain their distance from the players.
I am talking Non League here (Currently levels 2A and 2B) but the likes of Gary Kellett, Steve Brand etc. could manage a game with the strength of their personality, not reliant on cards and box ticking
 Both were eminently capable too, the players enjoyed the games, the fans enjoyed the games, the games flowed and there was I believe less adverse comment

I'm sure there are L1/L2 referees who could not do worse, and would probably be considerably better, than some of the weaker SG2 referees.

I do agree with your general point though that it appears too many referees coming through now are pretty much a clone of each other and lack the individuality/personality that we used to see.

That was the complaint previously from the players, managers and pundits, the lack of robotic consistency, they're well on the way to it now...

I take bmb's point that as he was correct he shouldn't be punished but on the other hand with so many fixtures perhaps it would have been better to appoint him to a different game just for sake of ease if nothing else.

Of course it would, it's simple common sense but common sense has been outlawed in the modern game!

My point was more that as a cantankerous old woman I am sick and tired of teams/players/managers/fans bleating and moaning about a referees appointment to their precious team because he had the absolute audacity to uphold the LOTG last time around and gave perfectly correct decisions that just happened to go against their team. It's utterly pathetic.  We don't need that same attitude coming from referees as well, we should be supporting our colleagues especially having got through a difficult game with the big calls correct.

It's one thing to be angry about dreadful incorrect decisions, yes Hategan and Karasev I am glaring at both of you right now, but completely another to cry about correct decisions and still try the blame game. Berate your players for being idiots and not the poor referee who had to deal with their ill disciplined behaviour, maybe they'll learn to control themselves better and get on and actually I dunno, play football maybe!

You're not cantankerous...

General Discussion / Re: D Orsato - MNU v PSG
« on: Thu 03 Dec 2020 14:43 »
It was a strange one!

Orsato clearly hadnt seen the incident but spent much more time trying to find the monitor than he did looking at it - barely a glance!

Maybe he had already been told what had happened, what to award and to go across to the monitor in order to satisfy the pundits about who was making the decision?  (Cynical old me again!!)
