Strictly speaking, Gregory was fouling Downing as much as the other way around. He was shoving Downing away to get goal side. Then there's very little evidence of a tug (his shirt doesn't move) and he went on to voluntarily lose his own legs from under him. Their manager did say they would try to win ugly - 100% delivery on that then!

These decisions happen across the leagues week-in week-out. We just need better enforcement and frankly better referees, but can't see either of those things happening...


There's so much happening, it's too difficult for referees. The only way is video evidence.


Possibly D50. But then there is the principal of marginal gains that refs should strive for. The players nearby were quite clear there was no foul in this case. Hopefully this ref will make fewer mistakes like this one in future.

The movement of players and ball is so much faster today than ever before, the monetary rewards for success is so much greater than ever before and players are much more "professional" in their attempts to get these rewards than ever before.
Dons50 is absolutely right in saying that so much is happening, and at a much faster pace, that it is becoming too difficult for the officials (not just the referee) and accepting mistakes, and the consequences, by them in the hope that they wont make the same mistake again in neither acceptable nor necessary when technology is readily available within seconds.

So true. Many years ago l did a referees course as part of my Duke of Edinburgh award scheme at school, qualified as a grade 3 referee and got to referee a few games mainly at junior level, so I appreciate exactly how hard the job is. Not sure about costs etc and to what level video technology should be used but it looks inevitable we are going to see it in the not too distant future.
