VIDEO: Moss has Irons ‘previous’….AT SPURS!

Ok last word on the Leicester match and it takes us back to February 2015 when the Hammers were held to a 2- draw by Spurs after taking a two goal lead at White Hart Lane.

The Hammers had of course taken the lead and six minutes into extra time the referee awarded a penalty for Spurs which with time gone should have been the last kick of the match.

You may recall that Adrian saved the penalty and by the letter of the law – or rather tick of the clock – the follow-up shot should have been ruled out.

To quote from the BBC report at the time: “The striker (Kane) went down in the box under the slightest pressure from Song and after seeing his penalty saved by Adrian kept his composure to slot home the rebound for the Premier League’s sixth-placed side.”

Take a look at our video and you may recognise a very familiar figure – yep the referee on that day was a certain Jonathon Moss.

  1. Oh it was him who didn’t understand the laws on the matter was it. And to think I was rather sympathetic to him before reading that. Do note that this time he made sure the game did kick off before he blew, so maybe belatedly he has at least re read the rulebook.

  2. Could the Leicester player Ulloa have been sent off and not been on the pitch to take the last minute Penalty for Leicester? When Jonathon Moss awarded the earlier penalty to West Ham after Winston Reid was brought down, there are photographs showing 5 Leicester players surrounding the Referee, haranguing and confronting him. Ulloa has his arm on Moss’s chest and is physically manhandling him – a sending off offence?

  3. Lets see if they get done for failing to control their players as we have had.
