General Discussion / Re: Leeds v Millwall-Darren England
« Last post by sastley on Tue 28 Jan 2020 23:52 »
I was at the game and whilst I agree with the comments made by Bielsas Bucket I would have used much stronger words. The referees performance in the first half was the worst I have seen this season by a country mile. I wouldn't argue with the penalty but he was so bad with his decision making throughout the reception he got at half time was fully deserved, he was completely out of his depth. Whether he was spoken to at half time we will never know but his second half performance was much better but still not very good.

A bit late but just to say Marc Edwards did pretty well in his match at Reading on Saturday.  Admittedly not a difficult game to referee but didn't look out of place and correctly gave a second yellow card to a Reading defender.

Has Andre Marriner got over the illness which prevented him refereeing at Shrewsbury on Sunday? I don't imagine he will be too happy if a bug prevents him from refereeing two big games in quick succession.
I know the commentator reported an illness but maybe it’s an injury - he has replaced Friend as VAR for West Ham v Liverpool tomorrow and also has a VAR appointment this weekend.

General Discussion / Leeds v Millwall-Darren England
« Last post by Bielsa’s Bucket on Tue 28 Jan 2020 22:45 »
Ive been someone who has sung the praises of Darren England over the past few months and was expecting him to have a good game this evening but unfortunately that didn’t happen. The game just seemed to big for him in the first half was inconsistent from minute one. Penalty decision wasn’t really his fault and was very tough for near side AR to see but throughout the first half let some very easy fouls go and gave some very soft ones which didn’t make him very popular with either sets of fans. Improved a lot in the second half and was rather easy for him. But this has just shown me that promotion may be too early for him after a poor two months or so.

Good to see Mike Dean on Spurs V Man City.

Quite surprised to see Lee Mason on Leicester V Chelsea, although he seems to be having a fairly solid season in fairness.

Oliver and Taylor with crucial games near the bottom of the table.

Well I am not happy with Mr Dean's appointment, here's hoping he gives us a decision for the first time in yonks like he has done in the last several times he's officiated City... he's having an excellent season on the whole to be fair (I'll forgive him his poor showing in the Spurs-Newcastle game in August).  We'll be needing more than just a few decisions to get anything out of the game though - City have by miles the better options and form, could get embarrassing for us I'm worried... still with all those strikers (exactly none) we have what could possibly go wrong....

Your multi-million pound budget probably needs to be managed a bit better then.

Does Villas involvement now possibly rule Attwell out for consideration for the Final? Nuneaton to Villa Park is close. Has he refereed Villa games in the past?

If Marriner is under the weather, there’s a high chance he’ll be fit by Wednesday!

Us youngsters recover quicker! It takes the body a bit longer as one ages, as I'm starting to discover myself.

Guess with FIFA referees all away and Mariner unwell they are very, very short on options.

Yeah, Atkinson only refereed last night and Dean tonight. Moss is doing West Ham V Liverpool and refereed Man Utd last Wednesday anyway. Mason refereed Man City last midweek and Man Utd at the weekend. Hooper and Bankes probably too inexperienced.

 I think Scott was the only other option and even he did Man City just 10 days ago. And perhaps he's under consideration for the final? They were lucky it wasn't Leicester playing tomorrow as Friend can't referee them!
