'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The penalty was right but the referee was wrong!

A boring game with not many chances and maybe a draw was the right result but Wolves looked poor and i mean poor it just seemed as we hadn`t woken up. You can`t win them all!

The referee was terrible today as was the linesman with the dodgy beard! Both of them seemed to be completely biased towards wolves. An example is the corner wolves got in the 54/55th minute and it was quite clear to everyone else that it was a goal kick, apart from the man who was closest to the incident and who is trained to do this as his job.

The past couple of weeks there have been a number of comments made about referees, most notably those from Sir Alex who complained referees were not fit enough. Also we had the beach ball incident (even though it was great to see Liverpool lose) which should never have been allowed a referee who was well trained should no a simple rule such as if the ball hits an alien object on the field of play then play should resume with a drop ball. It`s not hard yet our incompetent referees have little knowledge about our game of football, they are now deciding the results of football matches. If it`s not letting play go on until united score at old Trafford its sending Wenger to stand to be abused by the Man Utd fans, its a joke! (I don`t even like Wenger it`s just proves my point).

Referees seem to always be a long distance a way from the ball, they make some terrible decisions yet the way they are trained is never changed, they maybe demoted to the championship for a game or two but then there allowed back to destroy a premier league game. Something needs to change referees can not be allowed to go on performing at the poorest levels.

The penalty today was the right decision, the only right decision in the game. Too many were wrong; if referees can`t even get throw in decisions right then there is no hope for the match changing incidents.

That`s my rant over with but surely a blind man could do a better job than some of these referees!

great rant that! Most difficult job though, think I'd blame our lack of shooting rather than poor refs, then again, a draw away isn't a disaster.

Mon should make necessary changes when we need them except the predictable Heskey change which we all knew was going to happen .

Heskey coming on made an impact! He got the assist! Personally, i would have gone for Reo or delph for sidwell on about 70. or especially after we scored.

Ref was poor Carew was being hauled all over the place and never got a single decision from the ref, as for that linesman, he was pathetic

Still not sure about Sidwell. Great work rate, but gets caught in possession too often. Not a great passer,totally silly and uneccessary challenge for penalty. We were in control at that stage without playing very well. IMO Sidders is much more effective in a midfield 3. For Everton game I would bring Reo in for an out of form Carew.

I don't think I have ever seen such poor decision making at a Villa match. The wolves sang at the start that they only get cr*p refs ! What a joke the linesman became when he had to tell tale on Warnock when he pointed out he may need to see an optician. Sad day after such a bright and feisty day last week. Ah well a nice trip up to Sunderland maybe that will blow away the cobwebs !!!!!

I was quite annoyed with the way Sky harped on about the 'Doyle penalty' when the way Carew was hauled down was just as blatant. On referees in general, we do seem to have a pretty poor lot at the moment, not just yesterday, that joker for the Chelsea game was even worse.
