  1. You would hope that top level match officials would not affect the outcome of any game...here they failed miserably!! The assistant referee needs to be suspended and then sent back to the Championship. Two missed goals cannot be tolerated.

    Aside, from the BBC interview with Moyes...there is posted the pre-match tribute to the Hillsborough families...the tribute was very moving and well done...I recommend everyone watch it...

    1. Well...I guess the officiating could be worse. They could have EPL "replacement referees" like the NFL is doing. Talking about making a travesty of the game!! Trying to watch tonight's Atlanta v Denver game is a joke. The officials are getting about 50% of the calls right.

    2. They should have had 2 more goals, but I would hardly say they failed miserable. The off sides goal does not bother me much. I view missing that kind of call just a human element of the game that all sides have to deal with. Especially since I think he was on sides by just a hair.

      The 2nd goal though, that's pretty bad. Hawk-Eye is all I have to say about that.

      1. In my opinion, when game officials miss 2 out of 6 goals scored in a game...that is failing miserably. I cannot see 33.3% fail-rate as anything else. Being "on sides by just a hair" is what makes a good striker. Someone who can time his runs to gain maximum advantage. Taking that away by incompetent officiating cannot be tolerated.

        There is nothing said about eliminating the "human element"...just that the "human element" needs to be more competent. Incompetence at this level of play is not an acceptable option.

        1. Actually, come to think of it, assistant referee Ceri Richards actually missed 2 out of the 3 goals scored at his end of the pitch. Now that is "failing miserably!"

  2. Everton were robbed, 2 completely valid goals denied by a flawed officiating system. I say system because its not always Theresa, it's the lack of tools at their disposal to deal with the speed of the modern game. There is only so much the human eye can see real time.

      1. Guy,

        Thank you for including the www.dailymotion clip. I liked hearing Alan Parry's comments. Unfortunately, he stepped in it later in the game. From the London Telegraph:

        As Anichebe scored in the final five minutes of the game, Parry remarked: "For the second time on Merseyside this week, justice has been done."

        Parry, from Merseyside himself and a Liverpool supporter, quickly realised what he had said and backtracked.

        "This one rather more trivial than last week's for sure," he continued after a brief pause of realisation.
