THE SPORTS BREAK FAST. *As if referees don't get enough abuse - now one of their own has had a dig. Former referees' boss Keith Hackett claims officiating standards in the Premier League over Christmas were "bordering on appalling". Hackett, 70, has named five current top-flight referees who should be removed at the end of the season; Andre Marriner, Mike Jones, Lee Mason, Chris Foy and Lee Probert. In addition, he believes successor Mike Riley should step down from his job. We want to know how you think referees are performing this season compared to last? Should referees be made to address the media and explain their decisions on the pitch after games?

Andre Marriner demoted to League One for his officiating of the Everton/Man City tie for this weekend, rightly so. One rule for one, another for the other for both sides ie. penalty claim for us, which they had a softer one, then I admit Barry should've been sent off for the elbow, but Barkley did definitely not dive, this time. Described as being benevolent towards Man City as well, terrible match.
Premier League December 4, 2014 03:45 Emirates Stadium, London Referee: A. Marriner LIVE COMMENTARY I am Alex Moretto and I would like to thank you all for joining me here today. Good bye! FULL TIME: ARSENAL 1-0 SOUTHAMPTON. Alexis Sanchez secures all three points for the Gunners, who take advantage of their numerical advantage, with Toby Alderweireld off injured for the final 10 minutes. The visitors performed admirably in defence, frustrating Arsenal for much of the match, but Fraser Forster was finally beaten as they leave North London empty handed. 90' + 3' Another lovely run from Sanchez, and this time he does win the decision, earning his side a free kick on the edge of the area with the three minutes all but up. They delay taking it and finally Andre Marriner sounds his whistle for full time! 90' + 2' Sanchez wins a corner, though he sure looked to have won a penalty. Marriner does not award the decision in Arsenal's favor, but they should be able to run the game out from here. 90' + 1' ANOTHE ...

Andre Marriner will be the referee for the Norwich City v Liverpool Premier League game on Sunday
Let's hear it for Banter's unsung heroes, the referees whose decisions fuel many a bant and rant all season. The poster boy this term is Phil Dowd, the only ref to pass the 100-card mark. He's managed 99 yellows and two reds in just 22 matches - not far short of five cards per game. He's been given the Chelsea game this weekend - here's hoping you put in a performance that reaches the heights you have managed all year, Mr D. Top of the red card charts is Andre Marriner with seven, but the biggest red-mist merchant on show this weekend is Mike Dean with five. Nice to see that he's officiating at a game with nothing at stake, the relegation six-pointer between Fulham and Norwich at the Cottage. Expect a score draw in goals and red cards in that one. The rough-house tactics likely to be deployed by Sunderland to derail in-form Everton should receive soft treatment. The ref at the Stadium of Light [sic] is Leenient Probert, who has dished out just 21 yellows and two reds in 16 games. His cards-to-games ratio ...
"It was a nightmare day," he begins, his expression bashful. "People have asked if I am a midfielder or a winger, but I showed maybe I can play in goal." The gag is delivered with expert timing and a deadpan expression as he considers his account of that 6-0 humiliation at Chelsea, and his role in the focal point when he stretched to tip away Eden Hazard's shot with a hand, only for the hullabaloo to turn farcical as the referee Andre Marriner sent off Kieran Gibbs in a case of mistaken identity. If humour is a fine antidote to pressure, then Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain must be a handy person to have around the Arsenal dressing room at a time when the heat is whacked up. The 20-year-old demonstrates a fine knack for breaking the tension when conversation turns, slightly awkwardly, to his recollections of a recent afternoon of turmoil. Arsenal desperate to break trophy dam, says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain The 20-year-old winger recognises that 'winning the first one is the hard part' as he takes on Wigan in the . ...

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger feels Marriner should not be vilified for an “honest mistake”, but believes referees do need additional help from technology to make the correct calls in testing circumstances. He said: “[From] where I was, I did not see the difference between Chamberlain and Gibbs as well, so I believe that maybe the referee needs more assistance to make the right decision. “He [Marriner] does not have to do that [apologise personally], I trust his honesty. He made a mistake -- it can happen. “We did not lose on top of that, the game became much more difficult for us of course, down 3-0 with 10 men, but I completely accept the fact Andre Marriner is an honest referee and a good referee. “He did not do that on purpose, it was accidental.” Wenger added: “When they have a doubt, and I have said many times, the referees should have video assistance on his demand. “For a long long time I plead for video, only on that purpose, when the referee feels he needs assistance, he should ...

Arsenal - Swansea City Preview: Gunners need response after Chelsea disaster Mon 24 Mar 2014, 11:28 By Harry West Arsenal will be out to banish the memories of their Stamford Bridge nightmare when they host Swansea City in the Premier League on Tuesday. Instead of being cause for celebration, Arsene Wenger's 1,000th game in charge of the London club ended with a demoralising defeat as his side crumbled to a 6-0 thumping at the hands of Chelsea on Saturday. They were three goals and a man down inside the opening 17 minutes as referee Andre Marriner mistakenly sent off Kieran Gibbs instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain after the England midfielder handled Eden Hazard's shot. The nature of the defeat against the league leaders left many to suggest that Wenger's side are now out of the title race but they will be desperate to prove their doubters wrong when they welcome a beleaguered Swansea side to the Emirates Stadium. The thumping leaves Arsenal seven points adrift of Chelsea but Tuesday's game in hand gives ...

The existential crisis of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Kieran In the 15th minute of Chelsea's 6-0 win over Arsenal, referee Andre Marriner provided one of the most bizarre moments of this season or any when he sent off Kieran Gibbs for a handball committed by teammate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The following is a transcript of the existential fallout from that decision. Ox: Hey, Kieran...have you thought about what happened? Gibbs: Yeah, kind of. Why? Ox: I haven't been able to sleep since. I just keep thinking, like, seriously, how could that happen? Gibbs: I don't know, man. But it happened. Gotta just move on. Ox: I mean, I started thinking...what if he didn't make a mistake? Gibbs: What do you mean? Ox: I don't know, it's stupid. Gibbs: No. Say it. How could he have not made a mistake? You did it, I didn't. Ox: Like, what if our souls momentarily switched bodies and yours actually made my body do it. I mean, I'm not a defender. Why would I do that? What if that's what happened and he somehow knew, so he ...
Andre Marriner is the referee on sat...Newcastle vs Southampton where he'll face his worst night mare
GOODNEWS: Arsenal Title Dreams Receive A Boost: Arsenal title dreams received a boost on Monday night when their left back, Kieran Gibbs, had his red card against Chelsea overturned after an appeal to the FA. * Arsenal players gathered round a referee during a recent match The Gunners were also boosted by news that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also be cleared to play against Swansea tonight. Gibbs was mistakenly dismissed by referee Andre Marriner when Oxlade-Chamberlain handled Eden Hazard's shot during the 6-0 drubbing at Stamford Bridge. The shot looked to be going wide in any case and the Gunners have been successful in appealing the red card which had been transferred onto midfielder Oxlade-Chamberlain. A statement from the FA read: "An Independent Regulatory Commission today heard two claims from Arsenal, one of mistaken identity and the other of wrongful dismissal, both in relation to Saturday's game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. "The commission ruled that the dismissal of Kieran Gibbs was a ...
Andre Marriner has been appointed referee for Southampton v Newcastle on Saturday 29 March
Gibbs red card overturned, no ban for Oxlade-Chamberlain Kieran Gibbs’ bizarre dismissal has been overturned by the FA and while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was transferred the red card, his ban has been rescinded. The Ox had handled the ball in the penalty area on Saturday in their embarrassing 6-0 loss to Chelsea, but referee Andre Marriner mistakenly dismissed left back Kieran Gibbs. With Arsenal’s next Premier League tie against Swansea coming round quickly, a decision needed to be made and luckily for the Gunners they will have both players available on Tuesday night.

It's not hard to tell the difference between Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can you beat referee Andre Marriner's score of 0?
Premier League: FIVE THINGS WE LEARNT THIS WEEK 1) It's all going down the pan at Arsenal It was one of the games of the season, and could have been a defining moment for Arsene Wenger. But it all went wrong for Arsenal. On Wenger's 1000th game, more was anticipated. Now Wenger has never beaten Mourinho's Chelsea but that's not anything to go by. Arsenal were poor on all accounts. Now I suppose Arsenal fans would say that it was because of the sending off, which was a real blunder by Andre Marriner, but by then it was going to be 3-0. Chelsea just knew what they were doing a bit better than Arsenal, excuses won't get the Gunners the trophy they've wanted for so long. Unfortunately, they seem to have gone off the boil a jot. 2) Manchester United have left it too late Another team who haven't exactly worked wonders this season is Manchester United, who now seem to have picked up just slightly. Whether David Moyes has worked his magic though is still up for debate. If you can overlook their shoddy display ag ...

Andre Marriner: Referee to learn if he will be stood down for error Referee Andre Marriner will discover on Monday if he has been stood down for this weekend's Premier League games for sending off the wrong Arsenal player as they lost 6-0 at Chelsea. Marriner gave a penalty during Saturday's match after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain handled in the area - but dismissed Kieran Gibbs. Oxlade-Chamberlain seemed to tell the referee that he was the culprit but the original decision stood. Marriner has apologised for the error. Referees' body the Professional Game Match Officials Limited said in a statement: "Incidents of mistaken identity are very rare and are often the result of a number of different technical factors. Play media Final Score pundits on Gibbs' red card "While this was a difficult decision, Andre is disappointed that he failed to identify the correct player. "He expressed his disappointment to Arsenal when he was made aware of the issue." Marriner awarded Chelsea a controversial last-minute penalty th ...

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain TWICE told referee Andre Marriner he had sent off the wrong man in Arsenal's defeat to Chelsea
Backpass Part 1 It was, Andre Marriner concluded, disappointing. Is that not the understatement of the season? Imagine if Arsene Wenger had said it. Lost 6-0 at Chelsea and then revealed his disappointment. Arsenal’s performance at Stamford Bridge on Saturday was no worse than Marriner’s, after all. To a referee, issuing a mistaken identity red card is the equivalent of a 6-0 defeat. Many have argued that by the time the ref sent off Kieran Gibbs it really didn’t matter which Arsenal man left the field. Wenger’s team were three down after 17 minutes. The game was lost. Even if he had dismissed Wojciech Szczesny it would not have made any difference. Now contemplate a different scenario. The score is not 2-0, but 0-0, when Marriner errs. The result is not 6-0 to Chelsea but 2-1 to Arsenal: and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scores the winner. The title race changes on this misjudgment. Nonetheless, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was philosophical and he advocated the introduction of video technology, but . ...

I saw a black guy having a right go at Andre Marriner yesterday evening for sending off Kieran Gibbs rather than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. "You racist *** " He screamed, "What is it mate? Can't tell us apart just because we're black?" "You've got it all wrong," he calmly replied. "Really?" He shouted back, "Tell me why then?" "Because I'm Mark Clattenburg."
Arsenal set to appeal Gibbs red card Arsenal are set to appeal Kieran Gibbs red card, and the red card decision itself. With referee Andre Marriner making a complete bollix of the situation, and sending off Gibbs instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, it’s likely the left-back will be available for the game on Tuesday. However, Arsenal are also to appeal on the basis that Oxlade-Chamberlain’s handball did not prevent a goalscoring opportunity and therefore the red card itself should be rescinded. We have yet to discover from the officials on what basis they made their decision. Marriner seemed content for Arsenal to take a goal kick, but then changed his mind to award both a penalty and a red card. With no monitor on the sideline for the fourth official, the options are that he either got guidance from somebody who did have video in front of them, or he was swayed by protestations from Chelsea players and management. Neither option covers the referee in glory and a full explanation of his decision should ...
Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal - Why is it all about Arsene and Arsenal?? -The Goals- In England we love to focus and concentrate on the negatives of a situation rather than praise any positives. We are a nation that loves an underdog, someone who delivers against expectation rather than praise someone for their demonstration of superiority. That's exactly what happened yesterday after events unfolded at Stamford Bridge and it's winding me up something chronic! Headlines had already been written with just seventeen minutes of the game gone after Andre Marriner first awarded a penalty he or his assistant looked to have missed, and then for sending off the wrong player and not the guilty party who committed the original offence. From that moment on, unless Arsene and Mourinho came to physical blows on the touchline, nothing would force a change to the headlines that were to appear by tea time. So what if it was Wenger's 1000th game, who cares, this was still a Premier League to be won and three points to fight for. Th ...
Hapless Gunners shot down by Chelsea LONDON - Records tumbled at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon as Chelsea annihilated Arsenal 6-0, the Blues emphatically putting their Premier League title challenge back on track whilst effectively ending that of the Gunners. It was the west London club's biggest victory over their rivals and manager Jose Mourinho's biggest Premier League triumph. Samuel Eto'o opened the scoring as early as the fifth minute, and when Andre Schuerrle doubled Chelsea's advantage a couple of minutes later Arsenal already looked a beaten side. When Eden Hazard scored from the penalty spot in the 17th minute following a bizarre incident in which referee Andre Marriner sent off Gunners defender Kieran Gibbs for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's hand-ball the contest was over. "Is there a fire drill?" chanted jubilant Blues fans as many Gunners supporters made for the exits. Those who remained might have expected their team to play for pride, for the shirt, for their manager Arsene Wenger, who w ...
Andre Marriner ridiculed for sending off Kieran Gibbs. FA have responded by suspending Mark Clattenburg and apologising to Lewis Hamilton.
Wenger won't be forgetting his 1000th game in charge! dont think Andre Marriner will either!
Arsène Wenger's 1,000th game will always be remembered for The Mysterious Case of the Wrong Red Card, but Arsenal should probably be grateful the sideshow was so intrusively farcical, and the refereeing so birdbrained, it might spare them even greater scrutiny. Ignore, for one moment, Andre Marriner's contribution to a wild and eccentric afternoon. The real story was of Arsenal capitulating, once again, in one of the fixtures that identify champions. Add this to the 6-3 ordeal at Manchester City and the 5-1 at Liverpool and there is a clear pattern to explain why Wenger will not be collecting the Premier League trophy to go alongside that gold cannon he has just received for his long-service. The aggregate score is 17-4 and Wenger's mood could probably be summed up by his decision, for the first time in his 17 and a half years in charge, not to face the post-match press conference. Advertisement His team had played with no comprehension of what it takes to hold Chelsea and they suffered badly for it. The ...
Andre Marriner also described himself to me as a "huge fan" and demanded I play him either Fast Car or Baby Can I Hold You Tonight.

Andre Marriner's been at it again. Sending off the wrong man when the real culprit admitted it?!? Complete joke that he's still in a job.
Big tym error in Premiership for the year: Andre Marriner wrongly sent Gibbs off instead of Alex Chamberlain who handballed insyd 18yard box. Neverthless, wenger or Arsene was spelled (0)... Did u count them? Ibukwanu onye iberibe o! Lolzzz

'Andre Marriner, please name the guilty individual'
Here is the incident that led Andre Marriner to send off the wrong man at Stamford Bridge. 😂😂😂
“'Andre Marriner, please name the guilty individual'
Andre Marriner only sent off Gibbs because he had Chamberlain in his fantasy team.
To be honest I'm not extremely upset that we lost because we were expected to lose. What I'm extremely upset about is the fact that we lost 6-0. But the truth be told, for once it wasn't actually our fault. It is the fault of that poor referee Andre Marriner. It was 2-0 up until the red card and that was the determining factor for us losing by that many goals. For one, he sent of the wrong player and two, it wasn't even a red card offence. The ball was not on target so it should have been a yellow card anyway. I'm afraid to say that our title challenge is pretty much over. But at the end of the day.WIN, LOSE OR TIE, I AM A GUNNER TILL I DIE! Thoughts?
Referee Andre Marriner can now expect to be demoted from Premier League officiating duties and, while Gibbs card will be rescinded, Oxlade-Chamberlain will presumably be punished. Even then, though, the shot was heading wide and technically only warranted a booking.
Chelsea 4 Arsenal 0. Racist ref? Was Kieran Gibbs sent off instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain by Andre Marriner and his all-white team because the officials couldn't tell apart? I see a storm brewing.
Going on the Andre Marriner rules of recognising players. Shola has just won us the game. Or Tiote, or Sissoko.
To the left is Kieran Gibbs. He plays No. 28 for Arsenal. To the right is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He plays No. 15 for Arsenal. Can you tell them apart? Professional referee Andre Marriner (no relation) and his linesmen can't. World Cup refs: start doing recognition practice now.
Andre Marriner has said that he was happy with his decision to send of arsenal left back Louis Hamilton, and said it was not a case of mistaken identity
Sportsmail's resident official Graham Poll gives his views on the controversy at Stamford Bridge, which saw referee Andre Marriner send off Kieran Gibbs when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the real culprit. However, should there have even been a dismissal?
Apparently Andre Marriner has denied getting Gibbs and Oxlade-Chamberlain confused as he is still convinced he sent Theo Walcott off.
Select Miche Styles are 50% off - MONDAY ONLY!
Ref Andre Marriner is not anti ChelSKI right ? He didn't even see the handball which should have been a yellow, bcos the ball was off target. He decided to give a red to the wrong person. This same ref was behind Ramires dubious pen against West Brom. Fair play to you guys though.
I think Andre marriner is really racist. He thinks all black people look the same. How do you send off the wrong player
6-0. Thanks to Andre Marriner :3 ,Chelsea's performance and to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's Goalkeeping training sessions.
"After Drogba scored for Chelsea, I sent off Kieren Gibbs, while Theo Walcott was telling me he handled the ball." -Andre Marriner
I do hope referee Andre Marriner leaves out the phrase 'They all look the same to me' in his post-match report... :-/
Wonders in modern games called soccer " By Greg Stobart I’ve seen some strange things at football matches but never anything like that. The whole press box was huddled around the TV screens trying to work out what actually happened during that penalty and red card incident. It seemed like Andre Marriner missed the whole incident and listened to his assistant on the far side, who inexplicably identified Kieran Gibbs and not Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the man who handled. Oxlade-Chamberlain told the referee 'it was me' but the protests fell on deaf ears. The most bizarre moment you will see all season.
Regardless of how bad we were ( and we were shambolic ) I do wonder if Andre marriner is on the chelski wage bill... He wasn't even considering giving a pen till that " lovable rogue " John terry and his mates protested just how much was in the envelope he had recieved... Embarrassing performance from both the arsenal and the officials.
Andre Marriner has got to be the most stupidest human alive. Why send Kieran Gibbs off for no reason, Arsenal may have lost but not as bad as that. He is quite a good defender and he did nothing wrong.
Only thing more embarrassing then being a Gunners fan tonight, is being Andre Marriner and sending of the wrong mixed race player after a handball.
Andre marriner was a stupid Refree. Thank you my Fellow Gunners for watching 90+3m in Faith with blinking eyes.
Andre Marriner, the same ref who blundered when w brom visited chelc has also blundered 4 2day's match when he sent out a wrng arsenal player. Does this show that he is a chelc fan? Comment with YES or NO!
Three Things: Chelsea vs. Arsenal LONDON -- Three conclusions from Chelsea's emphatic but also controversial 6-0 win over Premier League rivals Arsenal at Stamford Bridge. 1. Chelsea's big-match mentality While many teams head into games of this magnitude with hope rather than expectation in their hearts, Chelsea exude the latter when confronted with a direct rival. The presence of a manager in Jose Mourinho whose winning mentality has carried him so far in the game and a captain in John Terry whose dogged determination appears to drag those in blue to fresh heights when the stakes are raised. From the moment Samuel Eto'o curled Chelsea into the lead in this game, the result was not in doubt and that may be why the London team wearing blue shirts and not their rivals sporting a red jersey have been collecting trophies during a period when Arsene Wenger's Gunners have been content to settle for second best. Evidence of Chelsea's killer mentality was displayed as they continued to go for the throat of their ...
Gibbs has been sent off wrongly by thz guy Andre marriner,otherwise vakhawene.
Andre Marriner: "Gibbs, you're off!" Chamberlain: "But ref, it was me!" Andre Marriner: "Shut up Walcott or I'll send you off as well."
For Tomas Rosciky's tackle on Azpilicueta, I think Andre Marriner could have easily booked Dennis bergkamp!!

Referee Andre Marriner gave a Red card to the wrong player in arsenal match against Arsenal
Kieran Gibbs (black) sent off for Arsenal in a case of mistaken identity for Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlin (also black) by referee Andre Marriner (white). Possible racial ignorance involved?!!
Referee Andre Marriner is sucH a lazy man..mistaken identity
FULL-TIME: Chelsea 6-0 Arsenal. What can you say about that? Chelsea were scintillating, Arsenal thoroughly humiliated by a rampant Blues outfit, who showed no signs of letting up after scoring twice in the opening seven minutes. Kieran Gibbs' dismissal, coming after Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had handled and Andre Marriner selecting the wrong player, added to the Gunners' woe on Arsene Wenger's 1000th match in charge as goals from Samuel Eto'o, Andre Schurrle, Eden Hazard's penalty, two from Oscar and a first goal for Mohamed Salah put Arsenal to the sword.
Breaking news ! Kieran Gibbs has been found guilty of the oscar pistorius trail lool 😂😂 c'mon Andre marriner get your self together
Andre Marriner *** how the *** do you send off the wrong man especially when the correct culprit admits to the offence, an absolute muppet !!!
Casual rascism from Andre Marriner today? Hows he going to explain that to the F.A?
doesn't alter anything to do with todays game but Andre Marriner and his assistants should be sacked poor poor decision no excuses but in a way it helps us out it means both will be available on Tuesday
It wasn‘t supposed to be this way for Wenger, evry thing that could hav gone wrong did go wrong, the ref (Andre Marriner) will hav his fair share of the headlines for his hilarious, bizarre, terrible decision to send Gibbs off instead of chamberlain .
Andre Marriner has just apologised to Ian Wright for sending him off ;-)
I hold my hands up and accept how atrocious Arsenal were today (again). And also, fair play to Chelsea. However, the bigger picture has to be that Andre Marriner should be sacked immediately after that. Sending off the wrong player is more embarrassing than any defeat and he should be stripped of his privilege to referee a game at that level. Rant over.
"Mate, I'm so sorry that I mixed the two guys up, it won't happen again, promise" says Andre Marriner to Arsenal manager, José Mourinho. ~ Uncle Koothrappali
