The officials today


Recommended Posts

I know referees come in for a lot of stick these days but credit where credits due he had a blinder today, other refs would have abandoned the game and made us play a replay which would have been a travesty.

Well done Mr Webb ?

I guess it goes to show how bias impacts an opinion. But Norwich fans I spoke to after the game thought the referee was appalling, especially for a foul leading to our third goal.

Personally I thought he was excellent, letting the game play on when possible.

The timer on Rams TV commentary showed the match still going on until past 121 minutes when the ref called a halt.

At 80 minutes when their 3rd goal went in and the floodlight quit the ref took the teams off.

I decided to get on with the rest of my life rather than wait as the best we could hope for was a cancellation.

Mr Lampard, however, had other ideas.

He made sure that tired legs and spirits were revived, the right subs chosen, and not only an equaliser but a winner ensued.

No doubt Norwich fans would have preferred the game to continue as they only had to hold out for a few minutes. Funny how fans can change their opinions so quickly.

Yes, full marks to the officials and well done to the engineers who patched up a faulty floodlight too!
