Robbo's View: Oh, Ref Off!

Robbo's View: Oh, Ref Off!

REFEREE Darren Deadman is at the centre of a remarkable argument this evening after his controversial one sided display at the Molineux during Burnley's 2-0 defeat to Wolves.

Darren's last name is rather ironic this evening, as I am sure he would be living up to his surname if the Clarets faithful could get their hands on him after a downright despicable display in the Midlands.

The game kicked off at 3pm and six yellow cards and a red card for Burnley later at 4:40pm the full time whistle was blown on one of the worst performances from a referee I have seen. Really! Thank god for internet via a USB stick now eh? I just have to let my outrage out now, so having my laptop in the car has saved my dad's car windows from the receiving end of my anger atleast.

As Owen Coyle correctly explained in his Post-Match press conference, there wasn't a bad tackle in the game, so for Burnley to walk away with so many cards is unbelievable. Clarke Carlisle will miss the Clarets' clash with Chelsea on Wednesdy now thanks to this mindless referee, who also missed the centre back getting a knock in the face which has also left the former Watford man with a suspected broken nose.

A penalty should also have been awarded to Coyle's men in the second half when Steven Thompson's shin was clearly stood on in the area by a Wolverhampton defender, a challenge which was waved away before, guess what, a Burnley player was booked for nothing just seconds later.

And this will shock you even more, Wolves recieved ONE booking, well done referee, nice to see you treat teams equally. Burnley really didn't do anything any differently than Wolves disciplinary wise, and yet they're punished.

Let's get a list going for Burnley's yellow cards shall we?

Stephen Jordan (27),
Brian Jensen (32),
Clarke Carlisle (47,79),
Robbie Blake (56),
Chris McCann (60),
Kevin McDonald (90)

Wolves were the better side don't get me wrong I'm not making excuses at all, they thoroughly deserved the three points on the day, after Michael Kightley strook either side of half-time.

Yeah no doutbing that mate, think that Wolves played us off the park and made us look very very poor yesterday, although the referee didn't help fight our cause.

Really am worried that this sort of thing will do us harm having been warned about too many disciplinary actions last season! Particularly annoying when most of these bookings were harsh. It was also rather unfair that Wolves were considered gentle giants with no bookings
