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.

Craig Pawson was right to book Fernandinho for a dive

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 16:12:37 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: It was a very good call by Craig Pawson to book Fernandinho — it was a clear dive. Pawson did well to take a lead, unlike Martin Atkinson on Friday night at West Ham.

FA's choice to not punish Lukaku is a kick in teeth 

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 23:11:58 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Consistency. It’s all that players, managers and fans ask officials for at all levels of the game. The FA, custodians of the game, now stand accused of failing to provide that.

Romelu Lukaku should be banned for kick says Graham Poll

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 10:16:21 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku must face a three-match ban once the FA view replays of the incident between the Belgian and Brighton’s Gaetan Bong.

Referee should have acted after Andy Carroll's early elbow

Mon, 20 Nov 2017 00:43:08 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: When you referee West Ham, Andy Carroll’s name jumps out of the team sheet as it’s handed to you an hour before kick-off. So you should act on an early leading arm.

England vs Germany use Video Assistant Referee technology

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 22:40:57 +0000

GRAHAM POLL: For the first time on an England game at Wembley will feature video technology. Here are the key questions ahead of the tech making its debut as Germany come to town.

Everton and Ashley Williams will surely face UEFA action

Fri, 20 Oct 2017 01:25:57 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: Williams was cautioned for the push on Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes and that was probably correct. But surely referee Bas Nijhuis will reference what followed in his match report?

POLL: Referee Martin Atkinson will be tested to the limit

Fri, 13 Oct 2017 23:24:26 +0100

GRAHAM POLL - THE OFFICIAL LINE: Martin Atkinson has been tasked with controlling one of the fiercest rivalries in the Premier League. He doesn't just have 22 players to worry about.

Joe Gomez yellow for high boot was deserved

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 23:17:28 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: The St James’ Park crowd tried to pressurise Craig Pawson into sending off Joe Gomez for a high boot on Christian Atsu. Pawson took his time before issuing a yellow card.

Graham Poll on diving Dele Alli: 'He can't stop cheating'

Sun, 01 Oct 2017 22:55:31 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: Dele Alli has a major flaw in his game — he can't stop cheating. The FA need to look at their disciplinary regulations. Currently, they will only ban a player if a dive is successful.

Jose Mourinho was a little unlucky to be sent to stands

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:20:52 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: Jose Mourinho appeared a little unlucky to be sent from the technical area for slight encroachment on to the field in an over-exuberant act.

Chelsea's David Luiz deserved red for Kolasinac challenge

Sun, 17 Sep 2017 16:06:50 +0100

GRAHAM POLL:Referee Michael Oliver had a superb game at Stamford Bridge getting the biggest decision, to dismiss David Luiz after 87 minutes for serious foul play, absolutely right.

Ritchie's on Mawson was similar to that of Mane on Ederson

Mon, 11 Sep 2017 00:28:37 +0100

Here, Sportsmail's experts Graham Poll and Chris Sutton explain why Matt Ritchie's high foot on Swansea's Alfie Mawson was different to that of Liverpool's Sadio Mane on goalkeeper Ederson.

Sadio Mane's red card was correct says Graham Poll

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 22:30:33 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: Alan Shearer, Ian Wright, Gary Lineker, Gary Neville and, yes, Chris Sutton, are pundits who said they would have gone for the ball like Sadio Mane. They would have been sent off.

Raheem Sterling only has himself to blame for his red card

Mon, 28 Aug 2017 00:20:28 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: Referees brief Premier League captains and a member of each management team before every game about the need for players to remain on the playing surface when celebrating.

Arsene Wenger found yet another reason to blame officials

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 19:36:19 +0100

GRAHAM POLL: Arsene Wenger as usual found reason to blame the match officials for The Gunners defeat at Stoke but he picked the wrong incident to focus on. Alexandre Lacazette was offside.
