Arsenal is back in action:
After three days, Arsenal is back in action against Newcastle Utd on Sunday afternoon. Lee Mason was nominated for this one and it is far from the best that PGMOL has to offer. In fact, none of them really stand out for their excellence.
Just this morning, Mail Online published an article about two referees who failed their fitness tests to become members of the FIFA International List. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase Arsenal Football Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.
Andy Madley or David Coote:
There will be no Euros for Andy Madley or David Coote unless they pass on the second attempt given to them after blaming the flu for their poor performance. What a poppy. If either had had a dose of flu, he wouldn’t have gotten out of bed in the first place.
It was not a good time for the PGMOL, as Jon Moss found himself in hot water because of his alleged comments made to Bournemouth players in their 2-1 loss to Sheffield Utd.
Dan Gosling said the referee did not help. Giving slight mistakes and small comments to two or three guys didn’t really help too. I thought it was very disrespectful what he said.
These are just the little niggly and then the sarcastic little comments. Officials state about respect at the start of the season and there was no respect from Jon Moss on Sunday.
I thought it was a shame. The comments he made especially to me and another player – talking about the relegation zone and “you’re still in the relegation zone”, “you have one”, “your team has one”, this and that and that was very, very disrespectful.
In my opinion, Jon Moss is up there with some of the worst referees in the Premier League, followed closely by the others. They are “managed” by a guy who must be one of the few who has not been able to oversee the successful implementation of VAR in England.
A subject discussed several times, but it still fails. Not because of technology in my opinion but because of operators who seem to ignore the “clear and obvious” rule.
Marc Clattenburg also found himself in trouble a few years ago for reasons similar to Moss. His comments were made to Adam Lallana who was then in Southampton. Clattenburg referred to the game change since he was called up for England, which didn’t go well.
Clattenburg said his comments were aimed at disseminating a situation rather than shaking his cards for dissent. Moss may have been doing the same thing, but even so, there is a difference between the two. Mocking the position and difficulties of the Bournemouth League was, in my opinion, unprofessional.
However, footballers cannot play on both tables. You don’t have to be a professional spreader to determine what some players learn from officials, so why are they surprised, upset even when they come back a little? Two wrongs don’t make a right of course but if it’s the start of something regular, there will only be one result. Zero tolerance in both directions.
Rugby is right. There is mutual respect between officials and players and when a referee speaks, the player listens. No first name is used during the game, just numbers and the color of the jersey and therefore problems rarely materialize.
Football referees seem to want to be everyone’s friends, certainly in many cases anyway. I remember Rooney had always been called Wayne by Mike Dean during our games, but these were just surnames for our guys.
Referees, linesmen, and women are there to do a job and they have to be professional. Footballers are not their best friend, they should not laugh and joke with the two and the same goes for officials. If a player begins to abuse the referee, reserve them. If he continues, send him back. After all, it’s in the rules.
This sends a message to children who are also growing up and to their parents/guardians who raise them while playing sports. Getting it right at the local level will only create a better future in all sports.
As for Jon Moss, well, he’s been cleared of any wrongdoing, which isn’t a big surprise, but that begs the question of how this incident was investigated. If Bournemouth’s complaint was formalized, someone other than Mike Riley should have investigated. For me, a large broom appeared and the nearest mat was lifted.
