Fatty Dowd Takes The Biscuit Barrel!
Well I've seen some pretty crap refereeing over the years but it seems to be getting worse! How the hell Fellani stayed on the pitch against Newcastle at the weekend is beyond me; and why Nolan wasn't awarded a penalty in that game, after being kicked up in the air from behind in the box, will remain forever a mystery. Those were the crimes of the Ancient Mariner!
But never one to be outdone, Fatty Dowd came to the party tonight and didn't just take the biscuit, he consumed the whole bloody biscuit barrel. How exactly did Taylor stay on the pitch after taking Kakuta out at the hip and sending him cartwheeling through the air? Dangerous play? The bloody Taliban are pussy cats in comparison with that tackle! But Dowd simply pulled out the custard cream instead of the Jammie Dodger. Still, after scoring a powerdriver of a freekick, Taylor then gave Dowd another chance to show red with a cynical trip. Surely two custard creams would amount to a Jammie Dodger? But no, Dowd gave the free kick and left Taylor on the pitch.
Mind you, unlike the Ancient Mariner, Dowd wasn't biased in favour of one side. God and Big Phil Dowd alone know how he gave that penalty to Alex! Absurd!
Something has to be done about rank refereeing like this. Of course referees make mistake - it is a hard job - but Mariner and Dowd took incompetence to a new level this week. An enforced rest would be in order for both.
