THE EPL IS GETTING HOTTER... Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho may face a ban from the Football Association after he criticised the fitness of referee Phil Dowd following the Blues' 5-3 defeat by Tottenham on Thursday. Mourinho also says that attacking midfielder Eden Hazard, 23, needs to be protected by referees or the Belgium international will leave the Premier League.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho slams referees again after Eden Hazard penalty is denied Jose Mourinho launched another attack on referees on Thursday night after Chelsea were beaten 5-3 at White Hart Lane. The Chelsea manager, who claimed Anthony Taylor should be ‘ashamed’ after failing to awarded a penalty in the 1-1 draw at Southampton, told Phil Dowd he was ‘too slow’. Chelsea’s poor Christmas run means they are now level on points with defending champions Manchester City after they beat Sunderland 3-2. This incredible defeat is only the second time in Mourinho’s history as top class manager that one of his teams has conceded five times in a game. Mourinho’s side took the lead at Tottenham through Diego Costa and the Chelsea chief claims his side should have been given a penalty when Jan Vertonghen appeared to handle. He said: ‘I can go in another direction and say what we all know, which is, with the result 1-0, one clear action could make it 2-0. ‘Normally, at 2-0, the result would be c ...
Jose Mourinho is a master manipulator whose criticism of referee Anthony Taylor was a calculated move to swing Premier League title race in Chelsea's favour With a manager as combustible and as clever as Jose Mourinho, you always know that he is going to blow at some stage of the season. By highlighting Anthony Taylor’s performance at Southampton, where the referee gave Cesc Fabregas a yellow card for diving, Mourinho created some hysteria. That was a carefully orchestrated move by Mourinho, delivering the same message in each of his post-match press conferences with equal conviction. At face value it looked like he was trying to attack pundits, experts and analysts. By turning his fire on them, and away from the referee, he avoided an FA charge. But his real target was referees. The title race could be decided by a referee’s decision and Mourinho wants to influence them. At White Hart Lane on New Year's Day, Phil Dowd is on notice and will be well aware that Chelsea have not been awarded a penalty aw ...
The look on Phil Dowd's face. He's like 'what the fis going on here'

Talk about a game of two halves, another half arsed cant be bothered performance in the 1st half (good to see Dougal can still motivate the troops), not helped by some very bizarre refereeing from our old friend Phil Dowd, the man who failed to send of Miralles at Godison, Suarez showed great opportunism when he floated a quick free kick over Kruel`s head after being brought down, amazingly Dowd dissallowed the goal, why was this ? Was the free kick taken from the wrong place ?, no, was the ball moving, possibly but if it was it was slight. No the reason he dissallowed the goal was he was busy chatting to one of the Newcastle players. If he thought there had been some infringement why not check with the linesman, who WAS paying attention. It was a game changer as Newcastle promptly went up the pitch and scored, Gerrard couldnt prevent the cross (what was Johnson doing and where was he ???) and Skrtel placed the ball firmly past Mignolet. Brendon really knows how to quieten the crowd, sadly though its ...
apparently he called Phil Dowd a fat dwarfy mong
Charlie Nicholas on SkySports News " he referee ( Phil Dowd ) has had a shocker". well that is putting it mildly, but he is on TV I suppose. But Dowd is the fattest and worse referee in the League. even worse than Chris Foy !
how was that a red?? Ridiculous decision by the unfit to referee Phil Dowd!!
The straight red given to Paul Dummett was a rubbish decision by Phil Dowd.
Shola Ameobi was sent off against Liverpool today for calling Phil Dowd a 'fat dwarfey mong'..

RED CARD - West Ham 0-0 Tottenham - Younes Kaboul We've seen this before from referee Phil Dowd. Younes Kaboul brings down Stewart Downing as he closes in on the penalty area, Dowd takes a good minute to mull it over, gather his thoughts - and then show Kaboul the red card. It's a free-kick for West Ham right on the edge.
LONDON, May 01, 2014 (AFP) - Chelsea assistant manager Rui Faria was hit with a six-match stadium ban and fined £30,000 ($50,640, 36,564 euros) on Thursday following his furious rant at the officials during Sunderland's shock win at Stamford Bridge. The Football Association found Faria guilty of two charges of improper conduct after Jose Mourinho's long-time assistant had to be restrained during a fiery touchline exchange with referee Mike Dean and fourth official Phil Dowd in the closing stages of Chelsea's surprise 2-1 home defeat against Sunderland last month. The incident was sparked by Dean's decision to award a controversial penalty to Sunderland when Blues defender Cesar Azpilicueta slid in to challenge Jozy Altidore, causing the Black Cats striker to tumble even though there was little intentional contact. Fabio Borini converted the spot-kick to seal a Sunderland victory which dealt a major blow to Chelsea's hopes of winning the Premier League and ended Mourinho's 77-game unbeaten run in league m ...

Gus Poyet is a great footballing guy, talks a good game. But credit to Phil Dowd, great call!!
Gus Poyet hailed the best refereeing decision he has ever seen after seeing Sunderland drag themselves out of the Premier League relegation zone. The 46-year-old Uruguayan was full of praise for match official Phil Dowd, who sent off Cardiff City defender Juan Cala for pulling back Connor Wickham and awarded a penalty late in the first half after initially allowing play to continue. Poyet said the decision was a direct result of the debate sparked by West Ham United midfielder Matt Jarvis’s attempts to stay on his feet under the challenge of Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna earlier this month that ultimately went unrewarded. “It’s the best decision I have ever seen from a referee in my life, it’s as simple as that,” said Poyet, the Sunderland head coach. “If we really want to stop players going down easily, this is the way. So all the credit to Phil today, because he did what we all wanted, but it was for some reason not possible. Ben Arthur , do you think poyet should be charged for this comment ...

How is the Pillsbury Dough Boy, otherwise known as Phil Dowd, a Premiership referee!? He requires a Segway to keep up with the action...
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 ...

Premier League: Dowd on derby duty The referee for Saturday's Tyne-wear tussle has been confirmed as Phil Dowd - a fourth outing this season in charge of the Magpies, after West Ham at home (drew 0-0), Everton away (lost 2-3) and West Bromwich Albion home (won 2-1). This is scheduled to be the second derby appointment of Dowd's career, the first coming back in October 2010 at SJP when he red-carded Titus Bramble as we won 5-1.
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 ...

Two tough opponents, Phil Dowd recently and Howard Webb coming up. Two points in two matches is ok against such opponents?

Both Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson were left bloodied and bruised following reckless, dangerous challenges by the mirralles, yet he somehow escaped fitting punishment from referee Phil Dowd and was also defended by his manager who bizarrely seemed more concerned with complaining about a non-existent Steven Gerrard elbow. It seems that in the world of Martinez, jumping with your arm raised but not making any contact with the opponent is a more serious offence than smashing an arm into someone's face and leaving them with blood pouring from an eye. It would also appear that Dowd also lives in that world. While Liverpool only have themselves -- and specifically Joe Allen -- to blame for not putting the game away, the part Dowd played simply cannot be ignored either. While Everton's second half display meant they were well worth a point and they may even feel they should have won based on chances created, had Dowd done his job properly then the Blues would have been a man down and trailing 2-1.
