Referee for Saturday

Recommended Posts

(IMO) We mainly get so many poor decisions as the law of average applies when you're not making chances with positive play.  If you apply pressure in this league you will get decisions.

I really don't buy refs (like Hooper) being bias towards us, but if they are swayed by such things at least in Shakespeare & Smith we have a bit more presence to test officials consciences.

I don't think anyone from the prawn sandwich brigade has much respect for Farke, or any of his staff.  So no favours (If they exist?!).

Oh, no!

I've stuck so many pins into my effigy of that plonker over the years that he should have been totally hexed by now and condemned to officiating non-league football.

I will always insist that his performance in the game against Newcastle that day did so much damage to Alex Neil's quest for survival at such an early stage in the season that the 'wee one' never quite recovered.

His denial of that brilliant overhead kick from Jerome sent even Ian Wright into a fit of rage on MotD and left most of the Canary faithful numb, to the extent that years later we still harbour a grudge.

Ignoring his decision making for a second, he's too slow and unfit to keep up with play, I've seen countless examples of him having to guess 50 50 decisions with us and in highlights  of other games because he was too far away from the incident.  Another one of countless blatant examples and not just in football of jobs for the boys

Yep, I dont believe he has any particular issue with us, he's just fcking useless all over.

Previously I've seen many reports of clubs requesting that certain referees no longer officiate their matches, for various reasons. I don't recall if any of these requests have been successful but assume at least in part some have. 

I've never seen Norwich request this, not specifically for Mr Hooper, just as a general observation. 

Nice Little Ol' Norwich again?

I would have thought asking not to have a certain referee is essentially calling the individuals integrity into doubt, I would be surprised if the FA will stand for that.

These referees are the best in the country, if we don’t like them I am not sure we can choose our own or limit the choice to the ones we like…..

Totally agree, but I've seen various reports in the press of clubs reportedly having asked this. Also some fan driven petitions to ask the same, but that's obviously less official.

I think Martin Olsson got in trouble for pushing or man handling him, I think a season or 2 before jeromegate ...

Palace, surely. They gave us a masterclass in how to win in the Prem - training ground routines, professional fouls, big strong players.

But if Jerome's goal had stood the momentum would have swung our way and our recent history might have been very different.
