Non-League / Re: National League Premier - 2020/21

I just saw this post on Instagram from Ryan Aitken https://www.instagram.com/p/COuVx5tlu5S/

Thoughts are with him and hope that he can return 2021/22.

As an Aussie watching the game. Jared was excellent. I'm a Blackburn supporter but wanted Brentford to win. In saying that all of the big decisions he nailed. Maintained a calm demeanor and did start flashing cards around when the players were getting feisty, used his communication skills.
It would be an amazing if he was to be promoted. Question: Would he be the first 'ex-pat' to be promoted to the Premier League outside of the UK? (I mean there have been Welsh officials back in the day).

Reading most comments and watching the highlights it's surprising (or maybe not) that Mr Woolmer has been appointed to a very important relegation battle match at Stoke.

Congratulations to Michael and the team for the League 2 Play-off final.

Curious that there are no announcement of appointments for League 1 play-offs. I can't seem to find them. Does anyone know who is officiating the two legs?

No Gillett after being taken off Stoke v Hull. Any word whether is injured or reason?

The other interesting decision was the no goal in Nottingham v QPR for the moving ball. BBC reported the ball outside the quadrant but looking at the replay it was for the ball moving. Its' technical but correct and the footage of Robert Jones explaining the decision looked very professional.

Looking forward to seeing Mr Gillett at Elland Road on Saturday. I haven't had chance to see much of him in his first full season, so I'm hoping he'll do well. Not an easy place to come to, even for the seasoned professionals of the English leagues.

How did Jarred's first performance go at Elland Road?

Have only seen it live, and thought at the time it looked 'soft', but once given it has to be a Red Card.

Indeed, due to the delay I wonder if the AR gave it?
I do miss the flag across the chest signal which makes it obvious.

After that I thought that Mr Breakspear was very inconsistant.

Everybody knew that the next Peterborough foul would lead to a caution and it did, although it was no where as bad as what had gone previously.
He then let numerous similar challenges go from both sides before realising he had to get control and cautioning for a very minor offence.

This led to the crowd, but more importantly the players losing a lot of respect for him and his decisions, and nobody knew what was a foul or a caution.

As an aside, what role can the 4th official have in decision making?

A clash right in front of the dug-outs with claim from the bench for handball.
It was obvious that the ref or assistant couldn't see because of the players blocking their view, but after a delay a free kick was given.
Again, the benches confronted the 4th official who had perhaps inadvertantly given the decision.
Is this allowed?

After having a look I agree that the call has come from his AR. It's a foul, he was pushed in the back. The reaction of Phillips when the penalty was awarded (to me) showed that he knew he got busted. The flare up from the players was the sanction of a red card. The question: If attacker was not pushed by Phillips did they have a clear header on goal? Answer: Yes.
It may have been a 'soft' push, but it prevented a potential goal scoring opportunity.

Kevin CLANCY is the Ref
McGeachie and Potte are the ARs
Nick Walsh is the 4th.

Awesome! Thanks for that, I did eventually found it. Funnily enough on the SPFL website  :D

Who has been put in charge of what could be the title deciding match for the SPL season?

General Discussion / Re: The VAR thread

According to Neil Swarbrick VAR is currently at 7/10 with room to evolve.

Well I thought kavanagh was rubbish tbh , for most of the game he looked like a little boy lost who didn’t seem to have a clue what he was doing , no Kmi wrong but IMO lots of pushes and pulls given the wrong way and Callum Wilson’s caution near the end was absurd ! If this is an example of select group referees we are in deep trouble .

I noticed he didn't have his FIFA badge on either.

Not sure how it works but I think that he maintains his FIFA status until the end of the year. Alireza Faghani from Iran who is now officiating in the A-League still wears his badge and is still officiating in Asian Qualifiers as an Iranian official.

I'm a neutral in OZ and I thought Atkinson was disappointing. Not the normal 'steady pair of hands' that he is described as. Should of cautioned two MU players for deliberate breaking up play. Result fair, Liverpool were not their best in the first half.

I thought I read on here re: Promotions that Ryan Atkin had been promoted to 2A, yet we haven't seen him appointed to any games. Does anyone know why? Or what is the situation?
