RCT at 2016-12-11 14:55:14

You at the Ref.Com is core in education and all our analysis is all about improving and understanding refereeing / assistant refereeing standards.

Mike has in this game managed in a low key and effective manner. How has he done this? by his positioning and movement to get in the right place to view and judge key match situations, he has let the game flow without being fussy and has upped his management of this game by applying law correctly for reckless challenges (6 yellow card offences) he has also got the basic things right like proactive management on throw in placement and leading his Assistants on throw in and ck / gk situations. We discussed at the start of this game "Don't watch the game watch Mike Dean" and this is simply why in my blog I have mentioned that we seen have a referee at the top of his game

Difficult  one to view but that looked a ck to Chelsea as the ball was played out by Dawson with Fabregas challenging as well for the ball

Great advantage to Chelsea as Mike moves with play showing the advantage signal


85

Again from that last Chelsea shot Mike moves across the edge of the WBA looking to get the best view and angle

Again we have mentioned Mike`s good movement around the field of play and we have again seen that as play moves down the left channel


69

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:27:17

Mike has a quick check with David Luiz  and he signals the Chelsea physio on, appears a head injury, good empathy seen here by Mike


66

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:24:39

Mike in a good position to judge no penalty to Chelsea which is correct a smile and a shake of the head is Mike`s communication to all - good refereeing seen here - Mike is looking relaxed and calm as Chelsea press hard for a goal

61

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:19:38

That fk to Chelsea should have resulted in a ck to Chelsea as Foster tips the ball around the post, difficult for Mike to see, could Harry Lennard have assisted here? I think he would have had best view


60

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:17:40

Dawson is careless on Costa and he needs to be very careful for the rest of this game


59

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:16:25

Harry Lennard signals a throw in to WBA as the ball just goes out and over the touchline


57

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:15:20

Stoppage for injury to Evans is well supervised by Mike


55

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:13:07

Yellow Card

Yacob  - following a good advantage to Chelsea at the next stoppage Mike shows Yacob the yellow card


53

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:11:47

A number of free kicks have been awarded at the start of this half, as Mike asserts his match control and he is missing very little, you only need to miss a foul or two at the moment to loose your match control, with 4 yellow cards to date


50

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:09:25

Lennard offside flag against Chelsea correct - tight but never the less correct


49

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:08:27

Yellow CardDawson correct off the ball foul on Costa, I mentioned the head movement and awareness by Mike this was a good example

 


Foul throw in by Moses

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:07:06

Good spot by Mike, throw in goes to WBA


48

Yellow CardKante yellow card reckless correct

 


47

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:05:07

Good movement again from Mike, his head movement to view all around is another piece of evidence of his concentration levels


2nd half is underway

RCT at 2016-12-11 14:01:45


Half Time Summary

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:56:22

Mike has to date managed this game in a low key and effective manner. How has he done this? by his positioning and movement to get in the right place to view and judge key match situations, he has let the game flow without being fussy and has upped his management of this game by applying law correctly for reckless challenges (yellow card offences) he has also got the basic things right like proactive management on throw in placement and leading his Assistants on throw in and ck / gk situations. Keep and eye on these commendable facets of Mike management of this game. We can only watch and learn from an educational point of view.

Both Assistants have been low key but effective, all offside decisions their key area correct.

4th Official Lee Mason just one area to think about, could and should he have assisted Mike in his detection of handball by Moses just before half time, close to the touchline when in a great position to view? this would also have resulted in a yellow card for Moses.

1 minute added time

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:46:41


4th Official Lee Mason

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:46:17

Could Lee have assisted in that last missed handball on Mike`s blindside but would of Lee had a view to assist?


42

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:44:33

Moses handles the ball following a through ball from Nyom, difficult to detect from the other side of Moses arm (away from Mike`s view) but if seen by Mike then a yellow card would have followed


39

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:41:54

Jacob foul on Pedro is careless as Mike distinguishes well between careless and reckless challenges


37

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:39:40

From that last ck to Chelsea Mike is looking like a hawk from his position to spot any grappling, the players will know to be careful because Mike won`t hesitate as he leads the campaign to cut out the grappling in the penalty areas.


35

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:37:14

Again in that last Chelsea attack Mike has adopted a good viewing angle and proximity to view the key match decisions in the penalty area.


Harry Lennard - throw in signal

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:35:12

Good and clear signal technique for that last throw in to Chelsea - Keep an eye on the height and directional technique from Harry and bring this into your next game.


30

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:32:48

Nyom careless on Pedro brings another free kick to Chelsea, spray out in Mike`s management of this free kick positive and correct ensuring that the defensive wall is back 9.15 m


28

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:31:06

Yellow CardMcAuley on Hazzard again spot on as McAuley commits a reckless challenge

 


27

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:29:10

Home fans don't like WBA`s time consumption tactics one for Mike to keep an eye on but WBA for me just keeping within the time limits.

What do you think?

Twitter@youaretheref


25

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:27:07

In that last WBA attack did you notice how Mike made very good ground as Rondon attacks the Chelsea penalty to get a good view and angle to judge


23

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:25:29

Throw in to WBA good signal from Mike who follows this up by retaining his position as WBA try to creep forward at the throw in. Basic you may think? but it keeps in your management of the game.


21

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:22:35

Advantage to Chelsea again correct signal followed by a good spot on a deflection and throw in to WBA


18

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:20:32

Yellow CardBrunt 11 reckless on Costa great position from Mike no hesitation, first reckless challenge correctly receives a yellow card. Mike has stepped up well here in his management of this game.


RCT at 2016-12-11 13:18:16

Great position to judge from Mike from Courtios clearance Mike is right there to view. Keep an eye on this area from an educational point of view


RCT at 2016-12-11 13:16:50

Correct offside from Harry Lennard against Rondon

 

 


RCT at 2016-12-11 13:15:18

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:10:54

Good reading by Mike of non foul as WBA play the ball into the Chelsea penalty area. Good positioning close to play adds value here


7

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:09:28

Good non offside flag from Simon Long as he views into the sun, always adds to focus and concentration when running the line


5

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:07:40

Good spot for a ck to WBA followed up by an advantage to Chelsea as Mike looks to keep the game moving early on


4

RCT at 2016-12-11 13:05:18

Harry Lennard correct to raise the flag for offside against WBA

Antonio Conte counted Chelsea as “underdogs” when he arrived at Stamford Bridge over the summer but now has to contemplate life as a title contender. “It’s difficult to accept this,” he offered before Sunday’s visit of an in form West Bromwich Albion“ I suppose it’s normal when you are playing well and winning a lot of games, but we have to make sure we don’t lose our hunger.” The visitors, awkward opponents and pepped by their own recent burst of positive results, will test their hosts’ momentum but, after eight wins in a row, Chelsea can be unstoppable at times.
