Substitution for MC, MC42 ON, MC10 OFF.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:23:05

One thing you have to say about Andre his recognition of foul none foul, careless and reckless challenges have been excellent thus gaining the trust of the players. I have not witnessed any dissent from any of the players towards Andres decision making tonight.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:20:12

Excellent save by the Arsenal keeper.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:19:39

Arsenal feel they should have had a foul but nothing given.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:18:15

Coming into the last 15 minutes the second half has been like a pre season friendly. The referee will be very pleased that the players are making it easy for him.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:14:03

Substitution for MC. MC2 OFF, MC35 ON.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:11:44

Good to see Andre having a word with A20 after he played an advantage to MC after a foul by A20.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:10:33

Another good advantage played by Andre.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:08:42

Free kick correctly given to MC.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:08:23

Arsenal’s Ozil facial expressions says it all about Arsenal’s performance.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:03:35

Good to see Andre letting the players know who is in control as Arsenal try to take a quick free kick as the ball was still moving.

MH at 2018-03-01 22:00:27

MC keeper comes out of his box and takes his own player out.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:57:42

Free kick correctly given to MC21 after a foul by A8.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:57:10

Just seems that City have come out in the second half a little bit complacent.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:56:22

To add to Arsenal’s woes A14 has his penalty saved by the City keeper.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:55:35

Penalty to Arsenal after a careless challenge by MC30 on A7, correct decision. Andre in an excellent position to give the penalty no complaints from any Man City players. 

MH at 2018-03-01 21:52:35

Loss of awareness Andre getting in the way of the ball.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:47:43

Manchester City to get the second half underway.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:39:13

It’s pleasing to see after the first 45 minutes everybody talking about the wonderful football being played by Manchester City and not talking about the match officials or VAR!!!!! It’s not been a difficult first half but you can only referee what’s in front of you. He has let physical challenges go, he has give the game a chance to breath and not been fussy. He has let the game flow and we have seen a wonderful goal from Bernardo Silva as a prime example. He stamped his authority on the game with 2 cautions one for each team and his control is not in doubt at present. Let’s hope this continues.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:33:03

Very rare you hear the Arsenal fans booing their team off but it’s happening tonight.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:32:20

Corner to Arsenal after a block by the MC defender.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:21:01

As there is no MC9 on the pitch.?

MH at 2018-03-01 21:20:25

Sorry correction MC19 scored MC’s 3rd goal not MC9.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:19:34

GOAL!MC9 makes it 3-0.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:19:02

Yellow CardA31 correctly cautioned for a reckless challenge.


MH at 2018-03-01 21:18:10

It’s pleasing to see Andres awareness of what is going on around him as recently we have seen referees constantly getting hit by the ball by being to far forward and in the players space.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:13:38

GOAL!MC21. Brilliant football all round by Manchester City making it look so easy.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:11:45

Offside correctly given by Ian Hussin AR2.

Challenge by A29 on MC10. Andre has a word with A29 correct.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:10:07

Andre just cantering around the pitch at present but using all his experience and anticipating and reading play well. Getting him into the positions that give him that ultimate viewing angle.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:08:33

Another good save by the MC keeper.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:08:15

Correct free kick given to MC21.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:07:55

Good save by the City keeper.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:07:13

As I said before the intensity goes up and Andre is totally switched on to that with the caution of MC30 stamping his authority on the game showing the players he will not accept those challenges.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:05:23

Yellow CardMC30 correctly cautioned for stopping a promising attack on A23.


MH at 2018-03-01 21:04:15

Up to MC scoring their first goal it’s been rather a tame affair, when a goal is scored the intensity always goes up, if and when it does it’s important that Andre goes up with it and stays fully focused and switched on.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:01:34

Well done Andre, played an excellent advantage for MC19 which lead to MC’s opening goal.

MH at 2018-03-01 21:00:36

GOAL!Excellent strike by MC20.


MH at 2018-03-01 20:59:54

Good advantage played by Andre after Mc23 was fouled.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:57:26

Good challenge by A23 on MC3.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:56:32

When the play is over towards the assistant I would like to see Andre squeeze play and get closer letting the players know he is there Incase of a potential incident.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:54:59

First corner of the game to MC.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:52:34

A23 goes down in the box nothing given correct.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:51:00

Very noticeable that Andre is keeping a very central path of control.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:48:59

Lots of empty seats at The Emirates tonight, is that the weather or the Arsenal fans showing their displeasure at their performances.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:47:25

First free kick of the game to Man City.

MH at 2018-03-01 20:45:12

Arsenal to get the first half underway.

The teams are in the tunnel.
