Carlos hopes that the referees will be more like the one at Villa

Recommended Posts

Carlos Carvalhal wants Championship referees to learn lessons from the performance from the man in the middle at Sheffield Wednesday’s clash with Aston Villa on Saturday.

 

Match official Geoff Eltringham was virtually anonymous during the 2-1 win for the Owls over Steve Bruce’s side and the showing drew praise from Carvalhal.

 

“We had a strong referee against Villa,” said Carvalhal. “He didn’t feel the atmosphere and made good decisions.

 

“If we had had referees like him in the previous five games, we would probably have minimum of five more points which would make a massive difference. We lost points in games.

 

“We would have more points if we had had referees who didn’t make mistakes.”

Is CC sailing a bit close to the wind with his comments on referees?

Not really because he's correct. Decisions against Birmingham, QPR, Bolton etc have cost us the points he's talking about.

I don't think the FA is going to claim that the officiating is infallible, but I don't know that you can get much more specific without raising some eyebrows.

 

To be fair, he also has the benefit of being correct: Some shocking non-calls in those games.

I agree that he is correct, it is just the FA or the league tend not to like criticism of officials. I just wondered if he is perhaps pushing his luck as he mentions it in nearly every interview.

The referees do a thankless job and in a lot of cases they end up 'making it about them' however, when they do a stellar job they deserve a lot of praise. When a referee comes across as completely anonymous that surely is the highest form of flattery. It must be the only job where that is the case!

Ref at villa didn’t do anything about Terry’s tackle that could have broken Fox’s leg but apart from that had a good game

I believe it’s acceptable to question whether a ref has made a correct decision, but it’s not acceptable to question a ref’s integrity.

Refs have little integrity and virtually no continuity . Give one team something for a perceived foul , two seconds later completely ignore the exact same thing by the other team . Look at the prem matches , top six team v top six team refs are fair and rarely get it blatantly wrong  . Rest of league v rest of league fair but not to the standard the same referee will employ at top six teams  . Top six v rest of league , refs will come down on top six teams side as much as they can because if a powerful team complains you'll be reffing under twelve matches if your lucky . If you support any team outside of the top six in prem they are incompetent and biased on a weekly basis in a majority of matches and if anyone calls them on their obvious failings the f.a. fines the teams manager the ref has scr3wed . Look at some of the decisions against us , at best incompetent at worst totally biased . Loads of teams will have the same feelings . While some will be sour grapes the amount of truly baffling decisions means that the refereeing  standards are set out to be poor and they fail to achieve such dire standards .
