‘Oh Baz...Baz...

Recommended Posts

In your own time Baz’ 

The referee says as Bannan is standing behind a free kick. Anyone else hear it?

Sounded like they were the best of mates.

Don’t worry Baz, I’ll give you the softest of soft penalties if you’re not winning the game. 

We were poor, but I find this kind of addressing of players cringeworthy stuff.

Surprised by the strength of Rowe to take out the one striker who our 3 CBS bounced off.

I said after about 30 mins that this ref was itching to give them something like a penalty.

Rowe gave the ref a chance, why did he need to be as close as he was? The guy was moving away from the goal.

Not to mention wrapping his arms around Nuhiu as if they were playing rugby or a particularly robust game of kiss chase!

This cosy over-familiarity towards players makes accusations of bias like this too easy. I don’t think there was bias, but it would be easy for referees to keep things formal in the same way they do in rugby. FA should take a lead on that.

You're entitled to your opinion, but having seen Bannan play well in the past, that was no where near his best out there today. Therefore I respectfully disagree.

The whole game was awful.

Agree. I said during the game Rowe will cost us and he did. Soft foul, but he didn't have to make that foul in the first place.

He called both Smith and Fammy by their first names during the game.

Its what many refs do, they want to be part of the gang, rather than be impartial judges of incidents in the game.

Or they do it to create a better relationship with players and hence help make the game easier to manage and better to play in (and possibly watch)?

The pen decision was still a stinker.

He actually turned down about three of their penalty claims. 

There is no doubt it was a very soft penalty, but we only have ourselves to blame for such an inept performance.

But he’s a referee, he’s there to ref a football match not to build relationships with people

Referees at all levels try and get a rapport with the players. It’s the done thing, they are encouraged to do this.

Sorry, but that is exactly what the referees are out there to do, if you can build up a ‘kind’ of relationship with the players it makes your job easier.

So you build relationships up with people and each one is different so therefore can impact the decision you make, It’s not about making their job easier When their decisions can cost people jobs we watch football for the game not for us to be talking about refs and their decisions all the time

Grasping at straws I’m afraid...

We lost because we were shite, not because the ref called Bannan “Baz”!

If we had played well, I’d be inclined to blame the ref. But we were rubbish again. LJ needs to look closer to home.

......and then slowed, such that Rowe was into the back of him. Threw himself forward and conned the ref. in "winning" the penalty.

So the ref said "Good dive Atdhe, you can have a pen. for that"

To which Nuhui replied, " Thanks Tony, Cheers!"

It was awful and not just because of the result. I bet most of the neutrals watching the game would have said the same, why did you think differently or are you just being argumentative?

You misunderstand me and I am certainly not being argumentative. The penalty was bloody diabolical. A draw to me would have been a fair result. Bannan  however, was by far the best player on the pitch. Apart from that the game was everything I expected it to be.

Not to sure on this, Nuhiu was very clever and ran close to Rowe making sure there was a ‘coming together’ never a penalty, even if that was at the other end I wouldn’t be saying we should’ve got one. All 3 of the penalty claims from them were weak. We didn’t deserve to win, but they also weren’t battering our goal relentlessly. A draw should’ve and would’ve been fair

Bannan was definitely no where near his best today, especially in the first half when he continually gave the ball away (like everyone else).....it was a poor game and no one could have complained at 0-0

They say these things even themselves out over a season (although personally I’m of the opinion that you have lucky and unlucky seasons) and if so then us getting this pen makes up for the one the ref gave Derby a few weeks back against us which was almost identical

All we need now Is to be allowed to take a free kick whilst the centre back is doing star jumps in front of the keepers face and we’ll be level

Spot on. I was there enduring it. We invited pressure and even without the penalty, Wednesday would have created more opportunities in the remaining minutes. We were that bad.
