Howard Webb Played A Blinder

Howard Webb Played A Blinder

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea: According to our forum poll yesterday's match official, Howard Webb played a blinder.

The question was...

How did match referee, Howard Webb perform?

The current result shows Mr Webb scoring very highly with the majority of you giving him 4/5.

Here are a few of your comments.

MCFC_Goatboy - 2 out of 5 for me...shouldn't of been a corner for their goal...possible hand ball for our 1st...2 big decisions may have got wrong. Apart from that was ok...correct decision on penalty...bookings were all appropriate...

SIR TROYSTER - I would give him 4 as I'm in a really good mood.

bluemooner_mcfc - 3. I gave him because it should have been a goal kick not a corner and he should have sent off 2 Chelsea players.

BlueWolfie - He was aware of the weather conditions and so let many things (forgive the pun) slide. Maybe one could argue that one of the yellows, deserved a red, and for that reason he gets a 4 instead of a 5.

cityman51 - Got the decision for there goal wrong, should have been a straight red for there fullback after the Tevez tackle, and gave most of the 50/50s to Chelsea, (but hey whets new), and booked Barry and let Anelka off for the same tackle and he did it 3 times so wasn't consistent in his decisions...but tried to let the game flow.

bluesnozza - 4 from me. Got most decisions right including the penalty and let the game flow nicely for the most part.

OziMan - 4 from me for his patience and tight control he displayed when the Chelsea boys started to lose control of themselves being outwitted and outplayed by a superior team.

Interesting - I personally didn't think he refereed well at all. This isn't a moan about the result - you deserved it. And I don't think it would've been fair to give the handball decision. That said, I think he made a lot of calls that needn't have been made and I would probably have said the opposite of BlueWolfie - I don't think he took the weather conditions into consideration because he affected the flow of the game, constantly giving free kicks that really didn't need to be given. (This is a comment purely on the referee, not the result, which was fair - referee or otherwise)

If you look carefully in that photo of him at the top of the article you can just about spot the City shirt under his top :-)

Now, now Merlin, i know its a while since a ref turned in an almost fair performance whilst a top 4 club was playing, but you don't need to go all Wenger on us.

The Chelsea fans saying our goals were "Webb assisted" ought to look at Chelsea's goal, what it resulted from. A corner that wasn't nearly a corner, far more contestable than any of his other key "mistakes"!

We may have won the match but I think that Webb made plenty of mistakes/questionable calls which provided talking points and which boths teams could have argued with.
