64 YELLOW TOT NC Dawson runs up to the ref because he feels he should have stopped play when Adebayor stayed on the ground. But when Tottenham had the ball they chose to not kick it out themselves and try to set up an attack. But running like that in the direction of the ref should be punished with a yellow card. Certainly as his own team could have stopped the game. 3

75 OFFSIDE ARS NC Two Arseban players run to the ball. Walcott is not offside, Giroud maybe. Assistant should then wait to see who gets to the ball. But he raises his flag from the moment the ball is played. Bad from the assistant and not according to the instructions. 2

  1. nick allen says:

    yet another biased review , ALL the NC in this match would have been against arsenal im sorry but yet again this proves this is NOT a referee review site it is an arsenal fans site to moan about refs decisions and this makes me very very angry !!! mark clattenburg had a superb match and should have been marked accordingly !

    • walter says:

      Nick,
      so tell us what the decisions should be then.
      I also think you don’t really understand it as you say “ALL the NC in this match would have been against arsenal” and as far as I can see I see that 3 NC decisions were against Tottenham. Why do you ignore those facts?

      And a ref scoring around 90% correct decisions IS HAVING A GREAT MATCH!

      I have seen that you come here and always say the same thing. Saying that we don’t know anything about it. But I never noticed you explaining where and what is wrong and preferably using the rule book.

      Or are you Mike Riley with a nickname?

  2. nick allen says:

    walter,
    i would prefer to see the reports written using the rule book too , i say the same things because the same things happen on each report , it is opinions that are written each time not fact as per the rule book . the nc’s on mins 9,60,64,75,87,92 are all seen from an arsenal fans view the sort of terrace opinion you would hear every week, rather than an unbiased objective view you would hope to see from a match observer .
    no i am not mike riley and in fact i am not a supporter of a premiership team , for my sins i support plymouth argyle and retired from refereeing 3 years ago so would consider i have a much more impartial view than that of a fan of one of the teams !

  3. Florian says:

    Nick,

    The amount of bias in this game was really insignificant. The only potentially big decision was the offside @ 64′, but even then it’s arguable, as nobody can possibly know want might have come out of that phase. You seem to watch this site pretty regularly, I’m sure you noticed there are matches with far more contentious events.

  4. Walter Broeckx says:

    Nick,
    So for you it is not a yellow card when you run out of field with the ball and run some 3-4 meters further almost in touching distance with the stands and then you kick the ball high in the stands?
    I don’t mind it when they kick the ball out of the stadium standing on the line or just over the line, but in this case he was standing already out of the green zone around the pitch. I know our ref reviewer was disappointed with Clattenburg as it is unfamiliar for him to let such a thing go.

    The 9 minute as I have gone to review the review: a high foot. Going to the ball at the same time as a defender and when the defender goes with his head as the ball was on head height and the attacker going in with his foot and almost making contact is where I do my games a foul. Certainly when the player who made the foul gets an advantage of this. Note that Clattenburg could have made the negative sign (you know this I think) and then he would have said: there is no foul in my opinion. But now he uses the advantage sign. Thus indicating that there was actually a foul.

    So Nick according to the laws and the instructions Clattenburg clearly made a foul at the 9 min decision.
