Pardew In A Rage

Pardew In A Rage

The feelings of rage were stiffened by the referee's decision to award a very dubious penalty to Tranmere. Then the rage nearly turned into fury after an even more obvious claim by us was turned down by the referee,

Peter Quinn had left Pardew feeling frustrated long before these two late incidents. He had been so disappointed with the performance of the official that he had visited him at half time. The second half just seemed to carry on in exactly the same manner.

Pardew said that he knew that the referee had lost it because of the number of hopeless decisions that were made. So many mistakes were made and even after the penalty which cost us so dear the referee seemed unable to give satisfactory decisions.

'You know when the referee's lost it a bit when he starts giving decisions that are completely wrong' Alan went on, 'I spoke to him at half time because I was disappointed by his performance in the first half. The teanm put in a good effort and didn't get their reward. I don't really won't to add any more than that' he added finally.

Pardew had to be quite restrained and careful when answering questions because of the risk of being put on report to the Football League for overstaing his case. Suffice it to say that the general concensus of opinion with regard to the above named official is not one of praise.

Cheat, Crook, Thief, Dishonest and Incompetent sre just some of the words used to describe Peter Quinn after this game.

By all accounts he had every reason to be upset. His job like a lot of other managers is at the end of the day at risk. These people need to be monitored better and if they are not performing they should simply be replaced by another.

I am surprised by Pardew and his rage at the referee. We should have taken our chances and if we had we would have won. The referee may have been the worst won in the game but so what. Next week we will have a different one and someone else will have this one.

Alan is always blaming someone else for his teams failings. He may have had an incompetent buffoon as a referee but that should not hide the fact that we were unable to put our chances away.

How anyone can climb to the heady heights of League One football refereeing and still not be able to see a defender play a backpass to his keeper, who then picks it up and runs 12 yards with it before kicking it clear....... ...and then there are the other 5 or 6 occasions where obvious fouls were not punished..... ...and many more where no foul was committed and a free kick given..... for and against BOTH teams... Waving "play on" for an "advantage" when there was no contact between players...?? I needn't go on.... Yes, Saints played well enough to win the game and should've taken their chances. The ref, on this occasion, was well out of his "league" and shouldn't ever grace a football pitch again, until he learns the basic rules of the game!

Good job I wasn't there because I would have had to go on the pitch and offer him my glasses. for his mark out of ten.I fail to see how we have not heard from the club that we are appealing against any of the bookings or even making a report of say -5 (yes minus five)

I would love to know whether the club has made a formal complaint about the handling of the game by Quinn. whether there has been an appeal against any of the bookings. Is there any resourse open to them with a possible refusal to accept that man as a referee again for one of our matches.
