Moyes bogey ref gets Swansea game

Martin Atkinson has been announced as Saturday’s ref at Swansea which may not go down too well with David Moyes.

The official has taken charge of four games involving the Irons this season and have lost two and drawn two.

He was in charge of the defeats against  Manchester United and Brighton & Hove Albion in the opening couple of months of the season and the 1-1 home draws with Leicester City and Bournemouth.

Moyes has yet to win for the Hammers with Atkinson as the man in the middle and his record over the previous eight years does nothing to inspire confidence.

Following Everton’s 3-3 draw with Manchester United in September 2010, the official has been in charge of a further 13 games involving Moyes.”

Moyes was charged with improper conduct and fined £8,000 following his actions after the final whistle when having seen Everton come from behind to draw, Atkinson then blew the final whistle with Phil Jagielka set to shoot.

 Moyes said at the time: “There was more time to add on for the goals and he blew up with the ball 25 yards from their goal.

  1. Bogey ref, that could be any of them, we get more bad decisions than any other club and more fouls against us than any others, we also had Lanzini suspended for that penalty when other blatant divers like Sterling, Alli and Zaha are allowed free dives galore.

  2. He’s lauded for being the best in the prem ? He’s another northen ref ( like most are ) and always manages to give us nothing for but plenty against lol! He got a seven day reprimand for the Everton /manc game ? Basically he was canned for not applying the rules and showing bias (cheating to you and me ) but as in all cases is Madley etc are allowed to get away with it continuously ? In case nobody has noticed they are trying very hard to make var a failure ? Mariner of all people seems to be the man making the decisions ? Why does it have to be a active ref and not a independent body so they can’t fiddle it ? They shouldn’t be anywhere near it ! Its bent from top to bottom ! As 32 said we’ve been the most dug out club in the prem for the last 3-4 seasons ! Its a fact ! They cheat !!! 😎
