General Discussion / Andrew Madley - Arsenal v Brighton
« on: Sun 14 May 2023 16:39 »

Not even 8 minutes gone and two very poor challenges gone unpunished, one for each team.

Not a good start

This is the reason Scott doesnt get many premership games.

Well done to the FA who have joined Kav in the act of bravery this evening:


The statement regarding Mitrovic in particular is extremely saddening yet at least it looks like, for once, APPROPRIATE action will be taken by the FA.

We'll see.

They will hammer the manager with a big (in relative terms) touchline ban, which wont cause much grief.
I reckon Mitrovic will get 5 matches at most, when it should be at least 10.
The usual fines again which mean nothing.

Disgraceful from Mitrovic.

Would the ball have actually gone in Im not so sure?

General Discussion / Kissing an Opponent on the lips??

Just seen this on the Norwich v Sunderland Game.
A bit of a tussle on the side lines both players ended up face to face the Sunderland player then kissed his opponent on the lips.
Does anyone think action should/could have been taken

General Discussion / Stoke v Blackburn - Matt Donohue
« on: Fri 10 Mar 2023 20:55 »
Not bad game to watch so far 43 minutes
Referee no major decisions to make until last couple of minutes of half.

penalty to Stoke turned down, clear mistake in my view, but it didnt really matter as moments later Stock scored.

upto the other end shot from outside the box a player jumps to block the ball it strikes his arm above his shoulder, the ref had a clear view but turned it away.

Finnally soemone in 'power' has recognised what has been stated on this forum for a long time.

Referees at both PL & EFL are at best being careless bit more likely incompetent when assessing injury time.

Time for off field timekeepers to egt avery game at the very least 60 minutes of ball in play, and further more not allowing set plays to be complete before blowing the final whistle.

Just because I'm actually going, Stroud again! Only 5 weeks since the last time, when the club got a 10,000 fine for him failing to see a penalty!

He missed a clear penalty for Reading on Saturday

Its pure incompetence.

They are just allowed to make it up as they go along with no accountability


100 referees will wear the equipment while officiating adult grassroots football matches in England

A trial of the use of referee bodycams across four selected adult grassroots football leagues in England starts this weekend in Middlesbrough before progressing to three other leagues before the end of the 2022-23 season.

The new bodycam trial, which is the first of its kind in the world, will take place in England after permission was granted by the International Football Association Board [IFAB], who oversee the laws of the game.

The aim of the trial is to explore whether the use of bodycams improves participant behaviour and respect towards referees in the grassroots game.

The FA has partnered with Reveal Media, who produce the bodycams, to help introduce the technology for selected grassroots referees in four adult grassroots partner leagues across Middlesbrough, Liverpool, Worcester and Essex.

Within the first three months of the trial, we will see approximately 100 grassroots referees wear the equipment while officiating adult grassroots football matches.

All referees taking part will receive the support, education and training required to use the bodycams effectively in approved fixtures. The footage can also be accepted as evidence in a disciplinary hearing if required.

As part of the trial, we'll be tracking and evaluating the impact of the bodycams on behaviour across the participating leagues and, if its successful, may look to roll it out across additional adult grassroots football leagues in England during the 2023-24 season.

"Referees are the lifeblood of our game and we thank the IFAB for their support in allowing us to undertake this new grassroots bodycam trial, the first of its nature globally," said Mark Bullingham, chief executive of the FA.

"We've listened to feedback from the referee community, and we hope this trial will have a positive impact on the behaviour towards them so that ultimately they can enjoy officiating in a safe and inclusive environment."

And Daniel Meeson, FA head of refereeing - technical and development, added: "We care passionately about the welfare and support for our referees in England, and our national game simply could not operate without them.

"Across all levels of our game, we have some of the best referees in the world many of whom have dedicated their lives to the refereeing and they deserve our utmost respect and thanks.

"So we're excited to explore how bodycams can be used in grassroots refereeing so that we can better understand how they could help affect the behaviour of players and coaches towards them."

Sophie, a North Riding FA referee who will be among the first officials to trial the bodycam, said: I feel very lucky to take part in this trial. I think its going to increase my skills and awareness on how we communicate with players not only how we conduct ourselves on a matchday, but also being able to take charge of the game with a bit more authority on some occasions.

Mohammed, a fellow North Riding FA referee, added: Its a defining moment in grassroots football. For me, prevention is better than a cure. We dont want to be reporting misbehaviour about misconduct from players and fining them. Wed rather it didnt happen.

Is VAR intervening on ball in and out of play now, it hasnt been in previous years? @newcastle v West Ham

Yes because its a matter of fact, its already happened on a game this season I seem to remember.

Personally instead of a club charged with failing to control players, I would like individual players to be charged with misconduct and if appropriate suspended.

That would have a much bigger impact and I am sure improve things rather rapidly!

Absolutely no chance of that ever happenning.

The only way is for every referee to do his job, very little chance of that happenning either.

Even if they implimented it, it wouldnt last very long just like all the other intiitives they have tried they just go back to type

Jones and Tierney SG 1

Is David Webb from County Durham?

Yes he is.

I assume you are asking to due to Middlesbrough playing, he has however done numerous of their games home and away in the past.
