Never to the dark side

saturday's ref not a lucky omen

Recommended Posts

Ref that missed John Terry’s hand ball at the gate season before last.

He was also the ref that sent off Flint when he ruffled Cunninghams hair, although Cunninghams reaction didn’t help.

Anyone but Keith 'the ****' Stroud is good for me

No, Keith Stroud is a better ref than Eltringham. I know that might be hard to believe, but Eltringham is awful. Stroud is a mini-Hitler. Eltringham just cannot get any decisions right.

Geoff Eltringham from County Durham reffed two homes last season.

A loss to both preston and Birmingham.

Issues an average of approx three yellow cards per game

Any idea if he reffed any Stoke games?

He did 4 stoke games last season in which stoke didn’t lose a game.

Sheff Weds (a) 2-2.

Ipswich (h) 2-0

Blackburn (a) 0-1

Sheff U (h) 2-2

For me this season, I'm watching out for a certain Darren Bond. 

His performance last season at home to Derby, in what was a crucial game for both clubs, was not great IMO.

I personally find the standard of refereeing really poor in general in the championship. The names already mentioned plus Scott Duncan and one I really don’t like Gavin Ward IMO we will be getting a poor referee regularly. As for the linesman . Well

....and Gavin Ward is worse than Geoff Eltringham.

That's kind fevs, Stroud is a Megahitler. Would not be surprised if he was Franco in a past life.

He’s about the right height (or lack of!)

Trevor Kettle anyone?

Did you really have to mention Mr Pot Black?

They are both awful.

At this level, the “assistant referees” are pretty useless. Rarely get offsides right, and don’t see any foul play, even if it’s only 5 yards in front of them. 

I appreciate that officiating can be a thankless task at the best of times, but some of the performances that we see in the Championship really don’t help either players or fans to show them much respect.

Absolutely awful ref in those games and Preston took full advantage

Has Cunningham recovered yet?

Just read that he was the referee the night we beat Stoke 2-0 in the league cup a few seasons back

Same again would be nice !

Good reffing today. Didn't bottle that ridiculous JA tackle decision (red all day) and didn't let the crowd get to him at all.

The only slight thing maybe was booking our player for kicking the ball away but letting their players do the same thing all first half.

Well done, referee today

And now today the away team won with him in charge. 👍

In the 60's & 70's we used to have Mr Toseland from Kettering. Whether home or away he continually gave 50/50 decisions and some 60/40 decisions against not just City, but Rovers also when he reffed them.

Used to love to see Lester Shapter or Martin Bodenham ref our home games in Div One,they were proper 'homer' refs! 

Lester Shapter? I remember him being the opposite!

As for Alan Saville. If ever a ref suffered from small man syndrome...…………...

Saturday's ref lives life with insults, mate. Drinks lots of beer and waits for half-time ree-sults. La la la la la la la la.....

Most importantly he didn't fall for Stoke's attempts to level it up 10 v 10, with the crowd yelling for a red card every challenge. Notably Ince after Bentley beat him in the air, flat out holding his head.
