Hammers get ‘lenient’ ref at Watford

marrinerAndre Marriner will referee Sunday’s Premier League clash between Watford and West Ham at Vicarage Road.

The west midlands official is one of the most lenient in the Premier League this season having handed out only 24 yellow cards in 11 games this season – one of the lowest tallies in the top flight among its 18 officials this campaign.

He was once seen as among the Premier League’s more error-prone officials – memorably sending off Kieran Gibbs instead of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Arsenal in 2014.

  1. He is still a very poor ref! Wait and see lol 😉

  2. They are all poor Laz! That’s just our opinion of course but then we are always right lol.

    Worst thing they ever did was start turning reffing into a paid job, so these jerks could pack up work & spend their time body building & deciding how to apply the rules to suit them. I remember that Poll (I think it was him)going on about how he didn’t blow the whistle in his last game until the ball had gone down the Anfield Kop end. Pathetic. Mike Dean punching the air when he has played advantage leading to a goal. Super pathetic. Then they all cash in with their books etc .
