Referee showed poor practice for Fabian Delph red

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 07:16:42 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Manchester City's Fabian Delph was sent off by referee Anthony Taylor despite the referee initially taking out his yellow card following Delph's reckless tackle on Max Power.

GRAHAM POLL: This was a 'sorry' day for VAR

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 23:10:57 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Supporters of Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR) will point to the fact that Juan Mata was offside and so his 'goal' was correctly ruled out using technology.

Dean wrong to send off Bakayoko but penalty call was right

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 07:19:54 +0000

GRAHAM POLL - VERDICT: Bakayoko had not made another foul challenge following his caution and overstretched after a poor touch on 30 minutes. He did catch the young Brazilian on the toe.

Eddie Smart got Tottenham's penalty decisions spot-on

Mon, 05 Feb 2018 01:16:38 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Well done Eddie Smart. The assistant got involved in both penalty decisions and he was right to do so. It topped a good afternoon for the officials. Jon Moss was very good.

Willian penalty blunder proves VAR is nowhere near ready

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 11:07:07 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: It is already clear that the video referee system needs plenty of development before it is ready for the Premier League. It certainly cannot be used next season.

Chelsea deserved a penalty for Klose's foul on Willian

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 08:02:29 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: When Norwich defender Timm Klose brought down Willian in the box in extra time video referee Mike Jones should have said, ‘No, there’s contact, it’s a trip. It’s a penalty.’

Abdoulaye Doucoure isn't a cheat - the referee is to blame

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 22:30:11 +0000

It is not similar to the Maradona ‘Hand of God’ offence in the 1986 World Cup against England. It’s more akin to the one Thierry Henry, committed in France’s play-off match against Ireland.

VAR overused in Chelsea's Carabao Cup tie with Arsenal 

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 15:51:44 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: The man in charge, Martin Atkinson, referred to the video referee four times but only on the last two occasions did I think it was relevant for him to do so.

GRAHAM POLL: How will VAR work?

Mon, 08 Jan 2018 11:45:25 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: The Video Assistant Referee (VAR) system will be used in the FA Cup for the first time in Monday night's third-round tie between Brighton and Crystal Palace.

Bobby Madley showed again he is not in his best form

Sat, 06 Jan 2018 11:04:44 +0000

After a difficult run of games for Bobby Madley, this Merseyside derby came at the wrong time for him. Madley should have booked Mason Holgate in the first half for shoving Roberto Firmino.

GRAHAM POLL: Jack Wilshere deserved red for stupid dive

Thu, 04 Jan 2018 09:57:16 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Jack Wilshere should have been sent off for an outrageous dive but luckily for him, referee Anthony Taylor’s view was blocked by a number of players.

GRAHAM POLL: Arsenal penalty wrong... tiredness no excuse

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 13:14:15 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: It should never have been a penalty. The tell-tale sign is the West Bromwich defender Kieran Gibbs, who doesn't appeal when the ball strikes the hand of Callum Chambers.

Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha goes down too easily

Sun, 31 Dec 2017 20:53:07 +0000

GRAHAM POLL AT SELHURST PARK: He we are, back talking about Wilfried Zaha again. It shouldn’t have been a penalty. He goes down too easily, too often.

GRAHAM POLL: Bobby Madley cost West Ham all three points

Wed, 27 Dec 2017 09:45:53 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Bobby Madley won’t like watching replays of the final goal after over-ruling his assistant referee to allow Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson a late equaliser.

GRAHAM POLL: Alli should have seen red at Manchester City

Tue, 26 Dec 2017 20:35:03 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Tottenham, purveyors of a beautiful brand of football, also have a real edge and it's their English players who provide this steel.

Manuel Lanzini did dive but he doesn't deserve a charge

Mon, 18 Dec 2017 00:30:48 +0000

It’s a bit of a dive, but not an outrageous dive deserving of an FA charge. I’m sorry if that doesn’t make sense, but that’s how hard it is to referee players such as Manuel Lanzini.

Michael Oliver got most calls right in Manchester derby

Mon, 11 Dec 2017 00:57:43 +0000

Confident enough to caution Kyle Walker in the fourth minute for a poor challenge on Ander Herrera and good enough to turn down close penalty calls. Oliver’s best quality is his calmness.

Craig Pawson right to give Everton a penalty at Liverpool

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 18:38:42 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: We can refer to it as a 'soft' penalty and Liverpool players and management can say they feel hard done to but Pawson was right.

Michael Oliver deserves to be the Manchester derby referee

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 22:30:16 +0000

GRAHAM POLL - THE OFFICIAL LINE: Michael Oliver is our No 1 referee so it’s no surprise he’s been appointed for the Manchester derby. I have seen his last two games and he excelled in both.

Mignolet should have been sent off for tackle on Diouf

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 23:24:21 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Simon Mignolet should have been sent off for his first-half assault on Mame Biram Diouf in Liverpool’s 3-0 win at Stoke. The tackle alone warranted a red card.
