[Albion] abominable refereeing

Perhaps not quite abominable today but...

What's happened to the rule about subs leaving the pitch at the nearest touchline?
Why do no refs in existence seem willing to punish time wasting at the first instance?

Am I being a miser on what should be a celebratory evening having bested a bunch of time wasting amateurs?

He was bad, not quite as bad as last week, but still bad. So weak

Weak naive referee, surprised to see Coote getting a PL game this week as well.

A shit “look at me“ ref who misses far more than he spots

Also, wtf was that drinks break/time out midway through the first half all about? So blatant, any half decent ref would have cottoned on to what they were doing.

Actually, not even a half-decent ref, just a person with an IQ of greater than 30.

Honestly think Pawson is one of the few more even handed and competent refs in the league. He didn't have a great game today but he could have done far worse.
What are you smoking? Can I have some?

Blimey - how absolute dig ship the rest of them must be!!
He’s always been utterly useless

4 minutes. @e77 ran a stopwatch from 90 mins and he played 3 mins 55 seconds extra.
Interesting! Especially as a Bmuff player was down with cramp for at least 30 seconds. I think the ref definitely thought it was pay-back time for all Bmuff’s time-wasting. And he basically gave up when the East Stand were mucking around by keeping the ball!

He’s consistently frustrated though. Take the push on Veltman second half in front of the dugouts that they nearly score from, and yet he’d given a whole host of fouls for far less contact. Same with one on Welbeck near the corner flag first half.

It’s bizarre because it’s not like he’s missed them, it’s how he judges them, slightest touch one minute is a foul, an all out assault next minute isn’t.

I noted the players were a lot more frustrated with the ref this week than last too because of that lack of consistency.
