ASTON VILLA V LIVERPOOL
Commentary By: MARK HALSEY
FINAL SCORE: 0 - 6
MH at 2016-02-14 16:59:27
Liverpool win by 6 goals to 0.
This was a very one sided affair and was not a difficult game to referee, Neil Swarbrick won’t be complaining about that as no one will be talking about the referee. Having said that he can only referee what is in front of him, recognition of careless and reckless challenges was excellent today. His first of 3 yellow cards all coming in the second half stamping his authority on the game. Supported very well by his assistants, a good day at the office well done.

L35 for a reckless challenge correctly given
MH at 2016-02-14 16:43:28
As I said that the assistant has just got involved and given a free kick to Liverpool correctly.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:42:51
This is a tough game for the assistants as they have not had nothing to do.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:41:55
AV9 so close just hit the crossbar.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:41:24
Good decision by the assistant goal kick to Liverpool.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:40:07
AV17, Neil is doing that by issuing a caution to AV17 after a reckless challenge.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:39:03
15 minutes to go and it’s a very one sided affair and it’s very important that Neil keep’s his concentration to a maximum.

Substitution for LV. L9 ON, L11 OFF.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:34:18

Substitution for AV, AV38 ON, AV7 OFF.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:30:13
Shambolic defending by AV.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:29:46
MH at 2016-02-14 16:28:53
AV15 Correctly issued. First bad challenge of the game and Neil stamps his authority on the game, letting the players know he will not tolerate those challenges.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:27:05
I believe that’s a yellow card for AV15 on L27 after a reckless challenge on L27
MH at 2016-02-14 16:25:53
L27 first touch of the game and he scores.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:25:28

AV11 receiving treatment.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:18:07
This is a very very quiet game compared to the previous game.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:12:28
After another foul given away by him all be it a small foul but they all build up and Neil has already spoken with him earlier.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:11:13
AV captain has to be a little bit careful with his persistent infringing the laws of the game.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:09:35
Villa come out with all guns blazing good save by the Liverpool keeper.
MH at 2016-02-14 16:07:45
Liverpool to get the second half underway.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:54:13
2 – 0 to Liverpool.
A very easy first half for the match officials but Neil won’t be complaining about that, but you never know the second half might be totally different lets hope so…
MH at 2016-02-14 15:52:29
MH at 2016-02-14 15:50:39
Neil is correct in not giving AV15 a free kick.
A minimum of 2 minutes added time.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:48:58
Great save by the AV keeper after a shot by L15.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:48:16
Not a lot happening very quiet for the officials.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:39:56
Once again good to see Neil talking to AV15, calming him down and correct once again not to caution. There are situations you can manage and some your can’t and that was one that you could manage, well done Neil.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:36:24
Neil manages the situation well by talking to AV4. Correct in not cautioning.

Foul by L17 on AV4.

Usually when a goal is score the temperature of the game goes up and as a referee you must go with it.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:22:34
16 minutes gone and the game is of low intensity and all of a sudden Liverpool score.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:21:31
Just goes to show how much Liverpool have missed Sturridge.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:20:55
MH at 2016-02-14 15:19:21
Free kick to AV well picked up by Neil.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:14:33
By picking up these small free kicks it gains the trust from players when making further decisions.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:12:43
It’s pleasing to see Neil getting 2 small free kicks correct in the first 6 minutes, shows he is fully focused.
MH at 2016-02-14 15:10:42
Good free kick to AV after a foul by L18.
