Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Craig Bellamy's reputation earned him a three-match ban for violent conduct and not the incident itself. The veteran forward missed Tuesday's goalless draw with Aston Villa after club and player "reluctantly" opted not to contest the FA charge for striking Swansea midfielder Jonathan de Guzman with his arm during Saturday's south Wales derby. Bellamy will also miss the FA Cup clash with holders Wigan and the crucial Premier League meeting with Hull. The incident was missed by referee Andre Marriner and his team of officials at the time, but it was reviewed by a three-man panel of former elite referees who unanimously agreed it constituted violent conduct. Meanwhile, Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure escaped punishment after kicking Norwich striker Ricky van Wolfswinkel at Carrow Road. Solskjaer believes former Wales' forward Bellamy's reputation has seen him unfairly punished. "Everyone can see there is a big difference in the decisions (on Bellamy and Toure ...
Chelsea Gossip: . Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho labelled West Brom a "Mickey Mouse club" after a controversial penalty awarded by Andre Marriner saved the Blues from defeat in a 2-2 draw earlier this season. Baggies boss Pepe Mel believes his players will use the jibe as motivation when the two teams play on Tuesday. . Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku, 20, who is on loan at Everton, says he wants to be playing in the Champions League next season but whether that is with the Stamford Bridge club depends on manager Jose Mourinho.
NOT ENUFF 2 REPAIR D DAMAGE CAUSED BY D REFS CONTROVERCIAL DECISION... Premier League - Tottenham's Rose has red card rescinded The red card handed to Tottenham defender Danny Rose for a foul on Edin Dzeko has been overturned, the Football Association has announced. PA Sport – 6 hours ago Eurosport - Danny Rose takes out Edin Dzeko in Tottenham's defeat by Manchester City Rose was given a straight red for a tackle on Dzeko inside the home penalty box during Tottenham's 5-1 defeat to Manchester City at White Hart Lane on Wednesday. Replays showed Rose clearly made contact with the ball, but a penalty was awarded by referee Andre Marriner after his assistant Scott Ledger flagged for a foul. After studying replays of the incident, which happened when City were 1-0 up, the FA has decided to rescind the red card. That means Rose will be available to play in Spurs' away game at Hull on Saturday. An FA statement read: "Danny Rose's one-match suspension has been withdrawn with immediate effect after the Tottenh ...

Chris Porter: Celebrates opening the scoring for Sheffield United Ten-man Sheffield United earned a replay with Premier League side Fulham after a 1-1 FA Cup fourth-round draw at Bramall Lane. Sunday's game survived a pre-match pitch inspection after heavy bouts of rainfall had left the field in a precarious condition, with Andre Marriner giving it the go-ahead an hour before kick-off. Fulham enjoyed the better of the early possession, but it was the hosts who took a surprise lead on the half-hour mark. A surging run from deep by Harry Maguire cut open the Cottagers' defence and he delivered a low ball across goal where Chris Porter was waiting to stab it past David Stockdale. Almost immediately, there was a penalty appeal at the opposite end as George Long looked to have clipped Hugo Rodallega, but Marriner waved away the protests. The hosts had Michael Doyle shown a straight red for an altercation with Chris David and Fulham were able to capitalise on their one-man advantage as Rodallega levelled with a ...

Things: Man United vs sunsederland MANCHESTER -- Three thoughts from Man United's stunning penalty shootout defeat that put Sunderland in the Capital One Cup final ... Theatre of nightmares Just when Manchester United think things are getting better, they get worse. It has been the story of a season. Another dreadful night for them -- a 2-1 win on the night, a 2-1 defeat on penalties after a 3-3 aggregate score -- could prove to be the microcosm of a miserable campaign. Now there will be no silverware in David Moyes' debut year at Old Trafford and no all- Manchester final. Instead it is Sunderland, spirited Sunderland, who may have a major honour. After starting the season with one point from seven games, it would be quite an achievement, while after inheriting the defending champions, Moyes' plight gets worse by the game. He seems ever more beleaguered. - Report: Man Utd 2-1 S'land (1-2 on pens; 3-3 agg) - Payne: Calamitous defeat leaves Utd in peril United were two minutes away from Wembley when Phil Ba ...
REFEREES FOR NEXT WEEK GAMES ANNOUNCED! We’ve just enjoyed another enthralling weekend of Premier League action and once again the spot light was on the decisions of the referees. Luis Suarez hit the headlines again on Saturday evening after ref Jonathan Moss awarded a controversial penalty to Liverpool at Anfield when goalkeeper Brad Guzan was adjudged to have fouled the striker in the box. Aston Villa were incensed the decision had gone against them as the Reds came from 2-0 down to salvage a draw thanks to the dubious penalty. There was also drama at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea won a fiery contest against Manchester United 3-1 that saw Nemanja Vidic sent off for a late tackle on Eden Hazard, while Rafael was extremely fortunate to stay on the field after Phil Dowd only gave him a yellow for a two-footed lunge on Gary Cahill. These are just a few decisions that have been discussed up and down the country this weekend, and with refereeing decisions looked at more closely than ever before, it’s no wond ...

David Moyes says he has received an apology from Jose Mourinho after claims the Chelsea manager had inside information Manchester United “are not happy”. Moyes revealed he was contacted by the Chelsea manager and their press office to clarify the remarks and is satisfied Mourinho was misinterpreted when he said he was privy to the mood at Old Trafford. Asked about the report, Moyes said: “I have seen it and I have had an apology from the Chelsea media department and from Jose. I think it was poor journalism actually.” Moyes must try to inflict Mourinho’s first Premier League defeat at Stamford Bridge without Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, the latter being expected back in full training on Monday. Moyes, meanwhile, has been fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association after admitting a misconduct charge arising from comments about referee Andre Marriner and his assistants following the recent 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Sunderland. admin - nEshun

A Webb Of Conspiracy and Match-Fixing There's clearly a web of officials - referees and linesman teams - cooperating with and directly paid by clubs across Europe including England to fix the outcome of specific football matches and entire tournaments to ensure the outcome of hundreds of millions of pounds and Euros in sponsorship and prize money in the big tournaments. It is a fact that many of the supposed 'best' officials in England – those lauded by the governing bodies like the Professional Game Match Officials (PGMO) whose bidding they clearly carry out to the letter whether rightly or wrongly - are actually the worst in practice when it comes to awarding decisions based on fair-play and I would cite FIFA darling Howard Webb as prime example. He has been so absolutely horrendous and bias this season that jokes abound that he has actually transferred from Manchester United whose Sir Alex Ferguson-managed team he supported with dubious decisions for a decade to The Special Favours One at Chelsea, wh ...
Chelsea are not a team of divers, according to manager Jose Mourinho, whose side had a player booked for the offence for the second week running on Sunday. Midfielder Ramires was cautioned by referee Andre Marriner for simulation in the FA Cup third round 2-0 victory over Derby County. Fellow Brazilian Oscar received the same punishment from referee Martin Atkinson in the Premier League match against Southampton on New Year's Day. Both decisions came after Mourinho accused Liverpool's Luis Suarez of diving in the Londoners' 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge on Dec. 26. "I maintain (there are no divers at Chelsea)," he told reporters. "Isolated episodes. The referees attacking it. The manager supporting the referees. I think we are doing well. Let's see if the others do the same as us. "I was happy with the card because the referee, in this case (Martin) Atkinson, did well. "This time I didn't speak yet with Ramires, but if the referee was there and he decide well, perfect.

D GLORY OF ENGLISH FOOTBALL Manchester City and Chelsea are now competing for primacy in the favouritism stakes. Its almost as if since Fergie the original refereeing bully has left The Premier League playground, there is a competition to see who now has the most clout with the referees and officials. There have been some truly tremendously bad decisions given to Chelsea and Man City above all other clubs this season including: 1. The last minute penalty decision which robbed Steve Clarke's WBA of a famous win at Stamford Bridge nd ultimately his job given by Andre Marriner to preserve The Special Favours One's unbeaten home record. 2. Liverpool's wrongly disallowed goal opening goal at The Etihad 3. A host of decisions given to Chelsea in their game vs Liverpool at Stamford Bridge The title of worst - possibly ever in Premier League history - is definitely held by Tiote's 25 yard Thunderball into the top corner of Joe Hart's net that was ruled out for a non- existent infringement yet there are terrible d ...

David Moyes charged by FA for misconduct over his remarks about Andre Marriner, after Sunderland defeat on Tuesday
Great night last night at the Stockport Referees meeting. Andre Marriner was an excellent Speaker and gave some very honest replies to some probing questions
if it is taking David Moyes 6 months to know dat big decisions hav been goin against man u dis season, it shows he is not on top of his job.A coach needs to speak out wat he sees or feels,and get ready to pay FA fine.Coaches like Di Matteo and Steve Clarke were both sacked by WBA on poor results largely caused by d refs-d latest one being d dubious pk andre marriner awarded to che against WBA.Refs do those tins and go scot free,while d coach is either fined by FA or got sacked by the club.I just wonder wat is d moral justification for allowing andre marriner,Howard Webb,Kevin Friend etc to tek d charge of big matches,especially on d evidence of wat Lee Mason and webb did in d matchse against Man City and chelsea respectively
Why do Sunderland beat the good teams but not the rubbish ones? Despite Manchester United’s recent woes, Sunderland entered last night’s contest as rank outsiders to David Moyes side, yet the reigning Premier League Champions continued the recent trend of looking like nothing more than an average, middle table outfit. The beleaguered David Moyes did his best in the aftermath of defeat to protect his players with attempted smokescreen straight from the Alex Ferguson manual by laying blame with the officials. Nice try David but unfortunately that excuse was about as effective as Tom Cleverley. The simple fact of the matter is that Manchester United were unable to really test Sunderland’s resolve last night and were restricted to long- range efforts which were either gobbled up by an ever grateful Vito Mannone or sailed wide of the Italian’s goal. Indeed Manchester United’s best chance of the evening, other than Nemanja Vidic’s towering header of course, came via a deflected Ryan Giggs drive from ...

David Moyes was disappointed with the performance of referee Andre Marriner in the Capital One Cup defeat to Sunderland.
John Obi Mikel was an unlikely goalscorer to set Chelsea on their way to a 2-0 FA Cup third-round win at Derby which featured another diving incident. The Rams had won 10 and lost just two of their prior 15 games under former England boss Steve McClaren and proved difficult for Jose Mourinho's men to break down at the iPro Stadium. But Mikel headed in his fourth Chelsea goal on his 300th appearance after 66 minutes and Oscar added a second soon afterwards. Chelsea's 16th successive third-round triumph - their last loss at this stage was in 1998 against Manchester United - set up a fourth-round tie at home to Stoke, but was tinged with controversy as Ramires was booked for diving by Andre Marriner. Referee Marriner controversially awarded Chelsea a penalty in the home draw with West Brom in November, after Ramires went to ground under minimal contact from Steven Reid. That decision saved Mourinho's unbeaten league home record at Chelsea, but there was no direct impact on the result on this occasion. Howeve ...

Mythbuster: Referees should be held accountable for their mistakes Managers have begun demanding personal apologies for wrong decisions but they are an unavoidable part of a sport which puts an unfair scrutiny on its most thankless job "I'm curious to know if Steve Bruce got a phone call ... if Chris Hughton got a phone call ... if [Michael] Laudrup got a phone call. Nobody called me to apologise about the fact that it was not a free kick against West Brom just before their second goal, or the penalty at Everton that would have been 1-1 for us. I don't know if Paul Lambert got a phone call. I don't know." When referees' chief Mike Riley phoned Steve Clarke to apologise for a stoppage-time penalty that bailed out Chelsea, Jose Mourinho was perturbed. Was a precedent being set? Are officials now going to personally apologise for every wrong decision? We should all hope not. The incident, an alleged dive from Ramires that Andre Marriner interpreted as a foul by Steven Reid, has prompted a new round of indign ...

Mike Riley has apologised to West Brom for Andre Marriner's blunder against Chelsea
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho labelled West Brom defender Jonas Olsson a "Mickey Mouse player" during a post-match fracas in the Stamford Bridge tunnel on Saturday. Tensions were high after Chelsea player Ramires flopped to the ground like Dumbo without a feather to earn the home side an injury time penalty which Eden Hazard converted for a draw. Mourinho - doing his best Pinocchio impression - defended referee Andre Marriner's decision to award the spot kick. The pair clashed after the match which was when Mourinho offered the critique and they sqaured up like Baloo and Shere Khan but were pulled apart by staff and teammates before punches were thrown. They later shook hands when Olsson boarded the West Brom team bus to leave Stamford Bridge. Olsson has represented Sweden 24 times as a player. Jose Mourinho played for Rio Ave, Belenenses, Sesimbra and Comercio e Industria in a career that never included top-flight action. He has not represented his country at any level.
Winter is coming. This past weekend saw a sharp turn in weather conditions with November now upon us and as temperatures started to descend into single figures across the UK the heat in the Premiership was turned up more than a notch. Saturday proved to be a tasty starter to Sundays Main course with plenty of goals and talking points. The game between Chelsea and the Albion turned out to be quite the classic with some comical goal keeping by Cech, Saturday’s “gateman”, putting the away side in the driving seat as we moved into stoppage time at Stamford Bridge. Mourinho’s 65 game unbeaten home run was on the verge of evaporating before his very own eyes before Andre Marriner preserved the aforementioned record with a quite astonishing penalty decision. Yet what was even more surprising was the Chelsea manager’s statement that it was without doubt a penalty. Either he was seeking to mug off all those listening on or he is seeking to keep Mr. Marriner in his pocket. For the second season running .. ...

'I thought he was going to book Ramires!' Baggies defender Reid reveals disbelief at last minute penalty awarded to Chelsea Steven Reid thought referee Andre Marriner was going to book Chelsea midfielder Ramires for diving instead of pointing to the penalty spot in stoppage time as West Brom were denied a memorable victory at Stamford Bridge. The additional four minutes which had been indicated were already up when Ramires tumbled in the penalty area under what looked a fair shoulder challenge by Reid. Referee Mariner thought otherwise and handed Chelsea a lifeline, which Eden Hazard - back in the side after being dropped for the midweek Champions League game against Schalke - gratefully accepted as he rolled the ball into the bottom corner. Reid, making his first Barclays Premier League start of the season because of injury to Billy Jones, felt West Brom had deserved better. 'When the whistle has gone, I thought he (referee) was going to book him (Ramires) for diving. Ramires has gone to ground really ea ...

DailyMail - Graham Poll column: Andre Marriner should not have awarded Ramires penalty in Chelsea v West Bromwich...
An injury-time penalty from Eden Hazard preserved Jose Mourinho's unbeaten Premier League record at Stamford Bridge on the manager's 100th home game. It had looked as though West Brom had come from behind to take the points on an afternoon of frustration, but Hazard's ice-cool spot kick won us a point after Ramires had been brought down inside the area. An underwhelming display had seen us lead thanks to Samuel Eto'o's goal just before half-time, but on the hour the visitors levelled through a Shane Long header and then broke to steal what looked like a winner seven minutes later, which would have consigned Chelsea to consecutive league defeats after last weekend's loss at Newcastle. The Blues continued to pressure, however, and when Ramires burst into the area with four minutes of stoppage time all but up, referee Andre Marriner pointed to the spot and Hazard stroked the ball home to grab a point. Team News Mourinho made two changes from the side that started against Schalke in midweek, as Frank Lampard ...

REFEREE CHANGE Andre Marriner replaces Lee Probert as referee for Chelsea v West Brom on Saturday
Mou: Ref Right To Award Penalty: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho insisted referee Andre Marriner had been right to award his side the injury-time penalty that rescued his unbeaten record at Stamford Bridge. [ESPN] -
CHELSEA DENY WESTBROM A FAMOUS WIN WITH A CONTENTOUS DECISION. Escapes like this merely fuel the sense that José Mourinho is simply invincible when it comes to Premier League matches in this arena. Chelsea were apparently beaten here, their game-plan long since desperate and panic-strewn, when Ramires bustled into the area one last time and tumbled under vague contact from Steven Reid. The clock read 93 minutes and 41 seconds when Andre Marriner, after a pause for effect, pointed belatedly to the spot. While visiting players struggled to contain their sense of outrage, Eden Hazard slid in the resultant penalty to extend the hosts' unbeaten run here to 66 league matches under the Portuguese. Tempers boiled over again in the immediate aftermath, Jonas Olsson and Chris Brunt incensed and taking their frustrations out on the officials, and after the final whistle seconds later. The visitors knew they should have added success at Stamford Bridge to their victory at Old Trafford earlier this season, but it was ...
I really think only Kevin Friend is worse than Martin Atkinson among the refs in England. Andre Marriner & Michael Oliver only good ones.
Steve Bruce: Hull boss to be charged over penalty comment Hull boss Steve Bruce will face a Football Association charge for his complaints over Tottenham's decisive penalty in Sunday's 1-0 league defeat. Referee Michael Oliver awarded an 80th-minute spot-kick for a handball by Ahmed Elmohamady, which was converted by Spurs's Roberto Soldado. "It's a joke decision," Bruce said after the game at White Hart Lane. "I shouldn't say this and I might get fined, but would we have got it? I'm not so sure." Bruce chose not to contest a charge of improper conduct when, as manager of Sunderland, he described Andre Marriner's decision to send defender Michael Turner off as "a joke" in January 2010. Hull, promoted from the Championship at the end of last season, are 11th in the Premier League but have picked up only one point from their last three games. ---JIMOSKI---

Andre Marriner has been appointed referee for Southampton v Fulham on 26/10/13
Alan Pardew did not have a 'massive problem' with Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa's red card after the Newcastle United defender was sent off in the 2-2 draw with Liverpool. Yanga-Mbiwa was dismissed five minutes before half-time in Saturday's Premier League clash at St James' Park when he pulled back Luis Suarez in the penalty area and Steven Gerrard drew Liverpool level for the first time from the spot. Magpies boss Pardew felt it was a 'tough call' for referee Andre Marriner, but can understand why Yanga-Mbiwa was dismissed. "I thought it was a tough call today," said Pardew. "I don't think Mapou really pulled him down in a manner that was a definite sending-off. "He got a little piece of him, he was the last man and I suppose by the letter of the law, he had to go. I haven't got a massive problem with it." Newcastle had earlier taken the lead through Yohan Cabaye's long-range shot before substitute Paul Dummett's first goal for the club restored the hosts' advantage. Daniel Sturridge headed Liverpool's second equal ...

"Dylan Hartley had already been warned by Wayne Barnes for speaking out of turn, before the dismissal late in the first half". Well done Wayne Barnes!!! Take some tips Martin Atkinson, Mark Clattenburg, Mike Dean, Andre Marriner, Michael Oliver, Lee Probert, Anthony Taylor & Howard Webb!
One thing that really did bug me this afternoon was having to hear Niall Quinn commenting, an ex-Arsenal player and the former Sunderland Chairman! Over on SS1 for the 'other game' they had Alan Smith commentating. Are Sky Sports run by Arsenal fans I ask you?

Chelsea lose their 4th consecutivegame at the Etihad Stadium as City defeat the Londoners 2-0. The result means that the blues are now 7 points behind second place and in danger of losing outon Champions League Qualification as well. If Tottenham win tomorrow thenthey will go above Chelsea to occupy third place in the league. Not only that, Arsenal are by no means far from the blues. The Gunners are currently 5th in the league and even after their crisis form, lie only 2 points behind 3rdplace Chelsea. The pressure on Chelsea ManagerRafael Benitez is increasing by every passing game. Chelsea were completely dominated by the champions today. In the first half, the defense made crucial blocks to keep City out but that did not happen in the second period. Chelsea should have gone ahead thanks to a controversial penalty awarded by Andre Marriner. However, Joe Hart stepped up and brilliantly denied Frank Lampard’s spot kick. City continued piling pressure and eventually two spectacular goals from Toure and T ...
Man City players started as a first the first half of match. A very great action by Mam City, Yaya Toure took a shot, Cech defended his shot. Nastasić was very close to score a goal, who took a shot from the header, but Petr Cech made an amazing save. It could be a goal to Man City, when David Luiz lost the ball by Man City player and passed to running, Aguero, Aguero broke Cech away and took a shot, but the ball croosed next to goal post. An another great action by Man City, Zabaleta took a shot, but Cahill blocked the head his shot. Rodwell could be Man City hero, who had two chance to score goal, firstly took an amazing shot, Petr Cech managed to defend and then this same player took a shot from the header, Petr Cech saved Chelsea before losing goals another time. Andre Marriner finished this first half. It's goalless draw. Man City plays very well and Chelsea defends to don't lose a goal. I hope Chelsea will definitely attack more harshly, will score more goals and take 3 points at this second half. ...

COMMENTATOR Jon Champion has been rebuked by ESPN after branding Liverpool FC striker Luis Suarez a cheat live on air during the FA Cup tie against Mansfield Town. Champion slammed the Uruguayan for the handball which referee Andre Marriner failed to spot prior to the Reds’ second goal. He described it as “the work of a cheat”, which sparked an angry response from Reds fans. In a statement ESPN said: “We take our responsibility to deliver the highest standards of coverage to our viewers. “ESPN’s editorial policy is for commentators to be unbiased and honest, to call things as they see them. “Inevitably this can involve treading a fine line on occasion, especially in the heat of the moment. “Comments during the Mansfield v Liverpool match caused offence where none was intended and we have spoken to our commentator about this incident."

Earlier this season I wrote about Gareth Bale's diving, my distaste for it and warned him that if he continued to do it, he would gain a reputation as a cheat and find himself on the wrong side of referees. Sadly, that's just what's happened. Bale has been booked four times for simulation this season, often unjustly. That's what happens to boys who cry wolf. No player in the Premier League has received as many bookings this season for simulation as Bale, confirmation if any is needed that he has garnered a reputation as the league's No. 1 diver. No one likes to think someone else is getting away with something at their expense, so it's natural that referees - a breed often driven by a petty need to prove that they are not starstruck by the game’s biggest names - would be quick to punish Bale if they suspected that he was trying to trick them. This week Bale met with the Premier League referee Andre Marriner to talk about the situation. Bale’s argument is that he often goes to ground in order to protec ...
Every club has a referee whose head would be placed on a stake if certain fans had their say. Back in 1971, the name of Ray Tinkler was written into Leeds United infamy. Everton fans have never forgiven Clattenburg himself for his performance in a 2007 Merseyside derby while Clive Thomas is still loathed for mistakenly disallowing a FA Cup semi-final 'winner' in 1977. Liverpool supporters had Mike Riley on their dartboard for years and can now add Andre Marriner to a lengthy roll of dishonour for disallowing a Luis Suarez 'goal' on Sunday. By 6pm that afternoon, Clattenburg had joined the names of Anders Frisk and Tom Henning Ovrebo on Chelsea's hit-list. ...John Brewin
Dear English FA I’m lodging a complain against the following sport spoiling robbers_Mark Clattenburg Anthony Taylor (Gooners-Hoops) (Blues-Man U) and Andre Marriner (Mersey madness), they have reduced the beautiful game to a mockery, please deal with them accordingly. Your referees are rubbish.

If United got penalty for Luiz' handball, haters will say it's a bonus. when Ivanovic was shown red, they also say it's a bonus. Either the referee are Howard Webb, Mike Dean, Martin Atkinson, Andre Marriner, Michael Oliver, Lee Probert, Mark Clattenburg, Phil Dowd, Kevin Friend, Mark Hasley, Anthony Taylor, Mike Jones, or another Referee, every decision that give United advantage(s) is/are wrong.

Today was another dark page in the history of EPL. Another slaughter from the referees against LFC! After Phil Dowd, Andre Marriner, Howard Webb it was the turn of Mark Halsey! It was obvious without any doubt that today Mark Halsey came at Anfield with specific instructions LFC to lose. He really did a great job! He showed Jonjo Shelvey an unfair red card; he didn’t award a clear penalty for LFC after Evans’ extended leg didn’t allow Luis Suarez to move on; he awarded a ghost penalty against Glen Johnson and a lot more. Only Martin Atkinson’s arbitration against Sunderland was fair against LFC this season. What we saw up to now in these first five games from Phil Dowd, Andre Marriner, Howard Webb, and Mark Halsey is that the referees are coming to whistle LFC’s game with a primary objective to not let LFC to win. The FA and the referees show no absolute respect to the history of this club in English football but also to the efforts of the manager and the players. Enough is enough! It is time fo ...
