Slightly Baffled


I have watched the extended highlights of the Liverpool match against Tottenham and if im honest it is up there as some of the worst refereeing i have seen. Gerrard got away with 3 fouls which were all bookable offences, suarez somehow after seeing him kick out, a blatant foul, his clash with dembele (who should have been booked as well) somehow he stayed on pitch. the penalty is so debatable its unreal i dont want to say too much as i have said enough.......but in honesty Spurs didnt get a decison.

@Lemming249 yeah, some calls are just utterly pathetic. And deserve punishment, if a flight ticket wasn't so much money I'd go over there and punish them myself.

@lucas21 Watch the highlights mate it's ridiculous, we were robbed. Even Steve Clarke said the goal shud of stood and that the officials got it absolutely wrong. If they can't get such a simple decision like that right then there shud be some sort of repercussions on them.

@Lemming249 didn't see, but I like the punishment idea.

If you want bad refereeing check out the West Brom v Swans game from Saturday, some absolute horrendous decisions! 1st of all how was that ever a f**king penalty, no one even touches the guy and he falls over like a f**king floppy c0ck! (Justice is done wen Vorm saves it) And don't even get me started on the disallowed goal for the absolutely ridiculous offside decision, how tha f**k can a player be offside if the ball comes back off not 1 but 2 opposition players first!! Should be some sort of punishment for officials who make such clear cut wrong decisions.

AVB said it was a penalty after seeing the replay and I agree. It's nowhere near the worst referring this weekend, check out Norwich vs Saints

I too have watched the game (90 minutes) on the television. As I was at the game yesterday and had no benefit of replays/commentary etc, I thought I'd forgive @machine44 for some breathlessly ill conceived comments. However now I've taken the time to watch it again, I have to say this is the worst discussion in the history of Rate Your Player. Fair enough, everybody's entitled to an opinion but Machiney must have been smoking the world's most potent methamphetamine before he wrote the above drivel. Forgive my harsh words but I don't even see a tenuous link to reality in the above. What on earth is this chap going on about? wow, wow and wow.

Do you work for The Sun? That's where this poor attempt at analysis belongs.

Both wer free kicks yes bale shouldnt have held his face but he was obstructed was always a free kick no matter where he held. Penalty for me could have went either i dont think he made much to any contact wit suarez, but what i saying is i dont think the man should have been on the pitch for it to happen. I know people will think it is biased from my side i dont really care but my view is now refs got alot of abuse for not awarding suarez decisons now they are fearful of giving decisons against him.

@machine44 both Vertongen's goals were well taken I agree, but both came from free kicks that shouldn't have been awarded. Penalty isn't debatable, it's a clear obstruction by Assou-Ekotto. Never got 'personal' to you either so where that came from I'm not too sure

@callum_paton dont talk to me like that #####, i am simply stating the obvious, spurs goals were fine 2 good goals, i am simply stating yet again how bad the refereeing decisons are costing football matches, dont get personal with me son

@machine44 please just shut the #### up pal, your digging a hole for yourself. End of the day, clear pen, Spurs scored from 2 free kicks that were not fouls, Gerrard "could" have been sent off but he wasn't so deal with it
