I consider Anthony Taylor to be one of the best referees weíve got. I donít buy into the Manchester referee nonsense thatís regularly spouted: heís totally professional.

However yesterday he was awful. His foul detection was all over the place and some of his decisions were unfathonable. He didnít look quite ďon itĒ and he fell for the consistent acting by Brentford as they strived to get free kicks for their set pieces that they do well from. The yellow for Alisson was ridiculous: Iíve never seen a yellow for a goalkeeper for delaying restarts given without utilising the step approach.

Everyone has a bad day at the office and yesterday was Anthony Taylorís.

Totally agree with everything you've said including the opening statement.

I was there with my 12 year old lad. He knows I always try to defend and/or explain the referee and their decisions. He turned round to me in the car home and said 'baba, there's no way you can defend that performance today'. I think that pretty much says it all.

With all due respect to some of the posters who are saying why respond, why give the the referee a decision, why not just stick the ball in the net, why not let your feet/skills do the talking.... It's very easy to preach when you've never been on the end of such behaviour.

Just in this thread there's been more time dedicated to the actions of Lukaku than the continued abhorrent behaviour of such so called fans.

Well, one things for sure. The further down the pyramid you travel, the attitude of players and management do make you wonder sometimes why anyone referees. In my view this game needed a firmer hand, but when nobody wants to play...

Rocester v Barnton
NWC South Division.
Score 3:2

Referee: Because I missed a programme,  I emailed NWCFL for information. As of 22 hours after kick off, I have yet to receive a reply!

An exciting game, light on skill, heavy on poor tackling, bossed by everyone, and dissent by the JCB bucketful!  Managers on the pitch at least twice, "helping" out, and an unpleasantness to the whole proceedings. A mass melee, with little action taken. Guess what? Another one followed!

What also continued to throw me was a yellow card that looked both jaded and..er...not wholly yellow. A rhubarb and custard sort of card, that had me doubting which card when shown. The whole procedure, brought in to aid understanding of those spectating, starts to fray if said spectators can't understand the messaging. With a yellow whistle brighter than any sou'wester on a Fisherman's Friend ad, or any weetabix packet, it's not as though there wasn't a yardstick to hand!

All of that said, I did feel somewhat for the official. Would he have been better wading in and sorting out, or would that have meant more rhubarb, more custard without any more control?

We are all good armchair officials, aren't we? I've had my very best games from the seat on the halfway line, and certainly since I retired, but sometimes you just gotta be brave, realise that there's no going on a journey with both teams, and just blooody sort 'em out! The referee today seemed a very pleasant guy, but this game needed more than bonhomie to manage some of the shenanigans.

All have have had games where your best of intentions lead to twenty two horses galloping out of the open stable door, but lessons are learned, and next week (or our next game) we recognise danger signals more readily, we learn not to let too much rope out etc. One remembers one of Mr Clattenburg's later games ( was it Tottenham v Chelsea? I forget) where, in my view, things didn't go hunky dory. It can and has happened to us all.

As much as I dislike Fernandes because of his constant berating of officials, his feigning injury and his diving (which was pathetic and correctly punished last night) he didnít delay the restart with his typically petulant action last night so unfortunately no second yellow should have been shown.

His blatant and pathetic attempt to pretend he'd been caught in the face/eyes during that scuffle should have been punished in my opinion.

Mutn3 reported on a game that I was on last season and although he/she didn't mention my performance it was nice to read about it. I'm sure others feel the same way

Keep it up JCFC and Mutn3, it's much appreciated

Not true - you definitely got a mention !

Ha ha, I stand corrected.

Apologies Mutn3

Were you AR or 4th then Conkernut ? I presume so for it would be strange for a site which provides input on match officials not to comment on the performance of the referee.

I was dugout side AR. It was Yaxley vs Spalding in August last year.

Jacob was guest speaker at our RA meeting last week. He's also a high level tennis umpire. Chaired at Wimbledon, Roland Garros, Flushing Meadow and whatever the Australian one is called

What was the reasoning behind sending AT to the monitor for this one? Surely it was a straightforward factual decision that the VAR should have been able to make.

Speaking as a City fan we have had some poor decisions against us this season (as have most teams) but nothing as poor as this one. For me it was a penalty every day and we got a very big get out of jail free card. Feel gutted for a Everton in their struggle to stay up and this hasnít helped.
That said what folk are overlooking is that Ederson would have saved the penalty so itís all a bit immaterial really. 🤪

Or perhaps you'd have subbed Ederson and bought on your 'specialist' penalty saver to do the job  :) :) :)

A further perusal makes me wonder whether I have missed some recent promotions to Level 3?  I see that Christopher Darling is down to referee in the NPL Midlands Division.
Mid season promotion notifications from Level Four to Three were due to be sent out no later than today with those promoted eligible for fixtures at the higher level from February onwards.  I suspect there is just a shortage of officials (again) this weekend with Level Fours making up the numbers.

I can confirm emails have gone out.
