Alan Shearer – right again!

We expected the appeal to be upheld – and obviously so did big shot Alan.

    An obvious mistake, that makes the pundits who said it was the correct decision look a bit silly now imho.

    Alan,
    I’m going further, in line with your ‘pardner’, Bellamy. It wasn’t even a pen… Ok maybe a soft one. These derbies are full blooded affairs man. Ref you’re fired.

    Because, like Ed said, can we now play 11 v 11? A full half?

    What if, we get relegated for these 3 points?

    Anyway, FA, please put this right. Instruct refs that NUFC can now receive pens as well – once in a while 😉

    No one mentions Fletcher sneakily pulling Colo back to get in front.

    We were denied a stone wall pen 20secs earlier fletcher then fouls Colo then makes a meal of the challenge.

    Wrong decision on so many levels

    How many reds have we had in recent years?

    I bet it’s way more than the amount of penaltys we got awarded in the same time.

    I’m not into these conspiracy theories, but the way decisions keep going against Newcastle, and now more pathetic charges, it makes you wonder if somebody within the FA has an axe to grind with either Ashley or Newcastle.

    They should have been looking to replay the match with a proper and experienced referee, instead they bring charges of failing to control our players who protested over the ref making a wrong decision.

    A comedy of errors glossed over by a company who have their fingers in more backhanders than Sepp Blatter.

    You really could not make it up!

    An Independent Regulatory Commission found that the match referee had made an obvious error in dismissing the Newcastle United defender for denying an obvious goalscoring opportunity during the game against Sunderland on Sunday 25 October 2015.

    he was never getting the ball, it was never a free kick, it was no worse than what Chancel did to defoe. the game was a joke

    I have been saying it for ages it must be two years since we had a penalty.
    I am sure because of the Wonga connection and Ashley SD zero hour contracts the FA have a hidden agenda.

    Tsunki:
    “The only time it gets to me is when he breaks rank with his neutrality and comments on sections of the fans / blog from his personal view, that’s overstepping his own remit I think”
    If you look at the top of the page it says “News and Commentary On Newcastle United By Ed Harrison” – it’s his blog man of course he is entitled to give his opinion!!!

    Sorry for bringing this up Martoon but yes it’s his blog and no he can’t say whatever he likes. He says so himself in his blog rules. Then there’s inappropriate commentary on less advantaged individual individual groups, and lastly criticising the fans for their convictions when they don’t fit in with his has to be a cardinal no-no.

    Martoon, sorry mate but…. no.

    Very shocked they over turned the red, never normally do for those challenges.

    I still think what Colo did was a foul but also agree that the red was debatable as Fletcher definitely wasn’t getting the ball.

    He launched himself into Fletcher, got to be much more subtle than that.

    Refs make mistakes. why keep complaining?

    Every team gets bad decisions, usually in favour of the top sides but no exclusively.

    I’d say retty much all prem refs make mistakes every week, to me it shows that there are one of two things wrong.

    1. The FA/prem league recruit the wrong people and don’t give them good enough training

    or

    2. That refs aren’t able to keep up with the speed of modern football and it stops them being able to make good decisions, which means they need some help from video technology for big decisions.

    It’s unbelievable – totally unbelievable. Refs make huge mistakes that can cost a club a fortune, yet what do they get? A fine? No. Maybe a Championship game – where they still get paid. How can you be a ref if you’re that scared you do whatever it takes to get the home fans onside? Let him ref the reverse match then, we’ll show him scared. A rookie ref taking such an emotional match is just plain stupid. Would they let him do the arsenal v spurs game? Or liverpool v united? They’re friendlies compared to the NE derby. If they ever came out of london, maybe they’d know it!

    They have to get experience of big games at some point. All refs make mistakes week in week out, it was a mistake, nothing more.

    Keep ahold pal,better times hopefully on the horizon.
    Regarding the red card saga…if there is any justice surely we must be due a chunk of good fortune sometime soon?
    Tonight I’m reduced to keeping an eye on the Stoke/Chelsea game…hoping for a real ding dong affair and some knackered Stoke players turning up at wor place at the weekend. Really desperately need a win to shift this derby hangover

    The FA aren’t corrupt in games, don’t be daft.

    I don’t think that was a foul, would have been very soft if given.

    Also

    If players get effected by crowds, people often say some players struggle under hostile crowds or are boosted by those supporting them.

    It’s only natural for refs to get subconsciously effected, especially when needing to make decisions in a split second.

    Also why are people annoyed we got charged with failing to control our players?

    Regardless of the decision the ref makes you need to accept it and move on. Shouting at him won’t help the situation at all.

    Officials do their best, many of them are poor, but maybe if players treat them with respect then it might be easier for players.

    I can’t find evidence against what you say, possibly less than most, I know they got away with a lot when Alex Ferguson was in charge for sure.

    It does need to be more consistent, but I think the in game refereeing is much fairer. The committee stuff at the FA is usually a bit more biased from what I’ve seen. Again without evidence to support this.

    I agree that hassling refs is wrong but it’d be comforting to see some even-handedness in the FA’s charging if clubs.

    And, someone said that refs have to handle big-stakes games at some stage but when they do and drop clangers, the FA should offer some comfort by partially replaying games from the point of the wrong decision.

    Doing so would give the ‘offending’ ref a learning experience and some comfort for the ‘disadvantaged’ club.

    Sage, i understand they have to get experience at some time, but not until they’ve had a few years normal matches. We’re already robbed of the best two as it is, because they’re from up here, yet it doesn’t stop that manchester ref – the one who denied tiote his screamer against city and failed to give us a pen against united and a red card. Jones i think it is. He’s a born and bred manc, but he’s trusted to take their games, yet anybody born anywhere within the north east area can’t take ours. Is that right? A born n bred manc can take both city and utd games, but somebody born in durham can’t take ours? So mancs can be trusted, but north easterners can’t be? It’s wrong.
