Bournemouth BEAT Man United by 2 goals to 1.
Bournemouth fans you are not dreaming, yes you did beat Chelsea last week and you have beaten Manchester United this week deservedly so. It is a fairy tale after nearly going out of the league and bankrupt, they fully deserve to be in the Premier League. What a fantastic young manager Eddie Howe is.
On to referee Anthony Taylor’s performance whilst it was not a difficult game for him to referee but you can only referee what’s in front of you I thought he managed the game and player’s well, his recognition of foul and non foul was of a high standard with excellent positioning and movement and he was very well supported by his two assistant’s. A good day at the office.

Wasn’t sure if the Bournemouth keeper was cautioned for delaying the restart.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:23:05
A few more seconds…..
MH at 2015-12-12 20:21:56
Silly foul by MU4.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:21:23
That looked a foul throw against MU.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:20:55
Bournemouth have 2 minutes to hang on, it’s end to end.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:18:17
Substitution for MU, 4 ON, 33 OFF.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:17:47
A minimum of 5 minutes added time.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:17:15
I have been very impressed with Anthony’s overall fitness and positioning, got himself into good viewing angles missing nothing of note.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:15:28
Yellow card for B8 deservedly so.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:14:35
Substitution for B, 8 OFF, 32 ON.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:14:04
B8 for dissent.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:10:59
Accidental clash of heads, both players have got to go for the ball.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:08:53
Will Bournemouth rue those 2 missed golden opportunities.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:07:35
Pulsating game now with only 10 minutes to go, end to end football.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:05:37
Correct foul given to MU.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:05:03
We should know by Monday whether it will be Mark Clattenburg or Martin Atkinson representing England in the Euro finals in France. Please let us know who you think should be representing us, as usual tweet us @youaretheref
MH at 2015-12-12 20:01:31
Substitution for MU, 27 OFF, 22 ON.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:01:00
Good free kick holding offence by Bournemouth on MU9.
MH at 2015-12-12 20:00:22
Again B27 missed a golden chance.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:59:21
That could prove to be costly.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:58:39
How has B27 missed that ????
MH at 2015-12-12 19:57:18
Good free kick to B15, good non yellow card just a careless challenge. Good recognition by Anthony.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:56:10
Remember to tune into the Ref Show on Monday with Alan Biggs, Carlton Palmer and myself to discuss all the weekend’s talking points.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:52:45
Substitution for Bournemouth, B17 OFF, B27 ON.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:52:04
Looks like B17 hamstring has gone,
MH at 2015-12-12 19:49:10
It’s pleasing to see Anthony not being over fussy on physical contact and giving the free kicks that need to be given to maintain his control.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:46:06
Good co-operation between assistant and referee on awarding a free kick to Bournemouth.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:43:51
I believe the intensity of the game will go up now and the referee must go up with it.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:43:09
MH at 2015-12-12 19:42:50
B2 can take a lot of credit for his excellent run leading to the corner.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:42:01
Good strike by B17.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:41:31
MH at 2015-12-12 19:41:09
Good run by B2, comfortable save by the MU keeper.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:38:27
Quiet start to the second half for Anthony.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:35:38
Delay while B19 receives treatment.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:32:17
Bournemouth to get the second half underway.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:24:00
A very entertaining first half and not to difficult for the referee, no big key decisions to talk about but that could change in the second half and the officials must come out fully focused. As I have already said in the first half assistant Stuart Burt must take great credit for his non flag in the build up of the Manchester United equalizer, with assistants on the select group coming under a lot of criticism for wrong off side calls.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:17:33
MH at 2015-12-12 19:15:31
A minimum of 2 minutes added time.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:12:56
I would of liked to see the yellow card come out straight away to diffuse any hint of potential retaliation.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:11:35
MU44. Good yellow card for reckless challenge.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:10:11
Good non foul on MU9 goes down far to easy looking for a free kick.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:09:31
Just seen the reply to Man Utd’s goal it is an excellent non flag by Stuart Burt.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:08:31
Another good free kick B4 nibbling at the ankles of MU44
MH at 2015-12-12 19:07:13
Correct foul given on MU7.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:04:11
Anthony shows good sprinting technique to keep up with the Bournemouth attack.
MH at 2015-12-12 19:01:45
Substitution for MU. 35 OFF, 44 ON.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:59:36
It’s end to end football with both sets of players behaving themselves at present, which makes it easy for the referee and that comes with correct recognition of foul and non foul.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:57:51
Another corner, the referees need eyes in the back of their heads as there is so much holding going on.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:56:20
Man Utd’s equalizer looked a good non off side flag in the build up from Stuart Burt.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:55:00
Initial great save by the Bournemouth keeper but MU27 follows up, well deserved equalizer.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:54:05
MH at 2015-12-12 18:52:31
B19 misses a golden chance to put them 2 up.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:50:39
Anthony seems to be happy at present just to be moving up and down in the middle of the pitch.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:48:27
An error by B19 presents MU 9 with an easy chance but spurns it wide.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:46:41
Good free kick to MU for a push.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:45:58
Good off side by Gary Beswick.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:44:01
Good game management from the referee by telling United players to keep their hands down at the taking of the free kick.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:43:05
Clear foul by MU17 on B17.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:42:22
10 minutes gone, it’s a bit blustery down at Dean Court, can be difficult for the referee on aerial challenges with the ball is moving in the wind. It’s important that he get’s his positioning right by getting into the dropping zone so he can judge.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:38:31
Please let us know your comments on the Bournemouth goal from the corner which came from the free kick, was it a free kick?

What a save from the Bournemouth keeper after a shot by MU27.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:35:38
Free kick to MU after a foul by B15 who can count himself lucky not to receive a caution.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:33:31
Starting off where they finished at Stamford Bridge last week.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:32:57
What a start for Bournemouth goal by B19
MH at 2015-12-12 18:32:19
MH at 2015-12-12 18:32:00
First corner of the evening to Bournemouth.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:31:31
Early free kick to Bournemouth, not sure about that one.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:30:17
Manchester United to get us underway.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:27:49
2 minutes to kick off.
MH at 2015-12-12 18:26:19
Teams are in the tunnel.

Good evening to you all for this evenings Ref Cam fixture between Bournemouth and Manchester United. Bournemouth will be looking to capitalize on their magnificent victory at Chelsea last week with a somewhat fortuitous goal which was offside. Having said that you would not begrudge Bournemouth their slice of luck as they have been on the wrong end of some poor decisions this season. However, Manchester United will be looking to get back to winning ways after their shock exit from the Champions League in mid-week. Last weeks draw with West Ham brought a lot of dissatisfaction from the home fans, something that I have never heard.
Today’s referee is Anthony Taylor who has continued to impress this season, also taking charge of a couple of Champions League fixtures looking for promotion into the elite category of the UEFA referees list.I am surprised at this appointment as Anthony only lives a couple of miles from Old Trafford.
Anthony has overseen 13 Premier League games to date showing a total of 49 yellow cards at an average of 3.7 per game and 1 red card. He will be assisted by Gary Beswick technical area side, Stuart Burt far side and 4th official John Moss.
