Chelsea v Tottenham


MH at 2018-04-01 18:05:08

Excellent victory for Tottenham it looks like they have cemented their place in the Champions League. This was a very entertaining game with the players discipline very good and Andre and his team can feel very pleased with the way him and his team have performed today. I thought his recognition of foul non foul was good, I thought his recognition of careless and reckless was also good. Yes you can argue there was a challenge by TH11 on C4 where he was late but you could say that C4’sfollow through was the reason why TH11 was a little bit late. I would have liked to have seen Andre speak to both of the players as there was a reaction from C4. Also TH5 can count himself very lucky that he wasn’t cautioned for a reckless challenge on C10. This was a minor blip on Andres performance as his control was never in doubt as he went about his business quietly and confidently thus insuring that upmost respect from the players in his desision making. He was well supported by his colleagues and in a London derby of this stature importantly no one is talking about the match officials. Well done to all a good day at the office. Enjoy the rest of the Easter holidays.

C10 goes down clutching his leg wanting a free kick. Just looking at the replay TH5 very lucky not to be cautioned for a reckless challenge. Chelsea rightly should have had a free kick. First mistake that Andre has made this afternoon.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:41:48

Will be very disappointing for the football club not being in the Champions League.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:41:09

It looks like Chelsea will be heading for the Europa League.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:40:34

Leading up to that incident in the penalty area was an excellent challenge by TH11 on C10 where Chelsea thought they should have had a free kick well done Andre.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:37:07

C9 goes down, No penalty well done Andre.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:36:36

Chelsea want a free kick after a challenge by TH15 but Andre gives a throw correct.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:34:24

Into the last 15 minutes.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:31:47

In terms of the level of involvement the referee is executing his game plan in much the way he did in the first half.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:30:09

Substitution for TH. TH10 ON, TH7 OFF.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:28:16

Yellow CardTH23 correctly cautioned for stopping a promising attack. Good to see Andre stamping his authority on the game.


MH at 2018-04-01 17:26:52

As I said earlier when a goal is scored the tempo of the game always goes up and we saw that straight away with a late challenge by TH11 on C4 and as it wasn’t picked up by the referee C4 retaliated. That’s when I said earlier you cannot switch off as a referee.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:24:46

Poor defending by Chelsea for Tottenham’s 3rd goal.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:23:31


MH at 2018-04-01 17:21:29

A coming together there by C4 and TH11. I can sense the tempo of this game going up as it always does when a goal is scored.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:20:09

GOAL!Excellent goal by Tottenham’s DELE ALLI.


MH at 2018-04-01 17:19:26

Pet hate of mine positioning at corners. Andre is to far away from play he needs to be more central in and around the D for that ball dropping in the danger zone. So that you can see everything.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:17:52

What a great save by the Chelsea keeper after a shot by TH7.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:17:17

Another good advantage for TH.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:16:59

Andre will have to be very vigilant at corners as there is a lot of jostling going on between players.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:14:11

End to end game now I am sure we will see more goals.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:11:50

Another corner to TH.

Free kick awarded to TH after a foul by C4 on TH19.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:04:09

Andre will be telling his team at half time we must keep our focus because if we don’t something will happen that could be missed.

MH at 2018-04-01 17:02:26

TH to get the second half underway.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:51:33

An excellent first half of football Andre and his assistants can feel very pleased at the way they have handled this half having missed nothing and picking up everything that mattered. Wasn’t fussy let physical challenges go and the players respecting Andres decision making. To be fair to the players their discipline has been very good.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:48:12

MH at 2018-04-01 16:40:57

Excellent challenge by C2.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:37:17

Also having a calming influence on the players so they don’t over step the mark.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:36:44

Andres awareness of what is going on around him is excellent. He is always keeping an eye on proceedings that’s going on, on and off the ball.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:35:32

AR Simon Long indicates offside but Andre waves play on as TH have the advantage.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:33:50

Offside correctly given.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:31:36

MH at 2018-04-01 16:31:18

1-0 game on.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:24:27

Corner to TH.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:23:32

At present Andre is correctly judging his level of involvement.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:13:20

AR Simon Long indicates an off side.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:12:45

As always Andre keeping a central path of control. He’s not the quickest but he uses all his experience and reads and anticipates play very well thus getting him into the ultimate viewing angle.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:10:52

Good chance for TH20 should have done better.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:10:17

A very lively start to this London derby, Andre will have to set his tolerance levels regarding physical challenges.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:08:31

C15 down, accidental collision by C15 and TH19. Andre read that incident correctly.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:04:16

That was a good opportunity to give C22 a free kick as there was no real advantage in that situation.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:01:50

These games can be very fiesty affairs Andre needs to be fully focused and switch on from the very first minute.

MH at 2018-04-01 16:00:03

Chelsea to get the first half underway.

MH at 2018-04-01 15:55:49

Teams are in the tunnel.

MH at 2018-04-01 15:51:23

It was pleasing to see Andrew Madley  given his chance in the Premier League yesterday something that I have been advercating for the last 3 years and we need to be getting our young talent through to the top level quicker. Well done Andrew on your performance yesterday.

MH at 2018-04-01 15:47:43

Today’s referee is the very experienced Andre Marriner and in my opinion is the correct appointment as he is a very safe pair of hands. Andre has refereed 21 games so far this season showing 54 yellows at an average of 2.5 per game showing a measure of Andres experience and management skills. He has also shown 2 red cards.

He will be supported by Scott Ledger (technical side), Simon Long and 4th official Graham Scott.


MH at 2018-04-01 15:37:13
