Moyes gets away with it – report

Soccer Football – Premier League – Chelsea v West Ham United – Stamford Bridge, London, Britain – September 3, 2022 West Ham United manager David Moyes talks to referee Andrew Madley after the match Action Images via Reuters/Matthew Childs 

David Moyes  – having lambasted the decision to disallow Maxwel Cornet’s goal against Chelsea – will not be charged as a result of his remarks.

The furious Hammers boss described the decision as absolute scandalous and there being no reason for the goal to be chalked off in the last seconds of the game.

Such was the overall ferocity of his remarks, and that he confronted the ref at the end of the game, he might have well expected to have been punished as a result.

He may well have been helped by so many others coming out and  saying that it was an utterly disgusting decision with  Chelsea goalkeeper Mendy going down ahead of Jarrod Bowen doing all he could to avoid him.

The Times reported that no action would be taken as it had been decided the the comments he had made did not reach the threshold required for disciplinary action.

  1. Phew…….I guess that they wouldn’t want to bring any more attention to the obvious. Threshold LOL

  2. PGMOL the the referees Assoc in charge if VAR have now admitted this pm disallowing our goal at Chelsea and one at Newcastle were errors! Won’t give us a point and time to get rid of VAR. Too many mistakes and too long deciding during games so it ruins atmosphere. Rather live with teferees mistakes so at least games keep moving.

  3. Perhaps because they knew that they already looked ridiculously incompetent without doing any more to affirm it. Nothing wrong with VAR technology if only they had capable people to administer it?

  4. Says it all. There’s absolutely no way that Moyes’ comments were not beyond the line (strong and direct criticism of the officials), trouble is they were also fully justified which they’ve now admitted. Doesn’t bring our point back though.
