FULL TIME SUMMARY

AM at 2016-01-24 16:30:43

Anthony Taylor has managed this overall in an effective and low key manner. He has shown very good movement around the field of play, he has judged fouls / non fouls very well including the foul by Howard on Ayew 16th minute key match decision correctly judged. There was a number of half hearted Everton penalty appeals in the 2nd half. none which warranted anything more than to be correctly turned down by AT. He has retained a good composure and body language throughout as I have identified in my blog. We discussed at half time the handball not given decision against Williams close to the half way line. This saw Williams arm/ hand in an unnatural position (outstretched) and whilst the ball was hit at close range for me this was handball. I don’t think AT saw this as it occurred on his left side and for me Lee Betts and or Andre Marriner should have supported AT here. Whilst it could be argued that Swansea still had half the field of play to attack and then score the goal. If the free kick had been awarded then it would have been a different matter? could we have used video review here? when would it have been used? at what stage? one for discussion I am sure. Please let us know your thoughts and free to interact with me at any time during the game by joining in on Twitter @youaretheref or e-mail at info@you-are-the-ref.com   Both Assistants have been low key but effective such was AT`s overall match control. Offside their key area has been correctly judged.

 


90+4

AM at 2016-01-24 16:24:17

Coleman puts the ball over the bar from close range and AT brings proceedings to a close. 1-2

 

 

Full Time


90+4

AM at 2016-01-24 16:23:28

E. ck must be the final kick of the game


90+2

AM at 2016-01-24 16:21:58

E fk – S clear the ball and E. regain possession as the ball goes out of play for a S. gk – AT again moves well with the break away


90+1

AM at 2016-01-24 16:20:08

S. GK from a Lukaku header – Fabianski did not touch the ball  – gk correct


Additional time minimum 4 minutes

AM at 2016-01-24 16:19:06


89

AM at 2016-01-24 16:18:45

Swansea sub – 22 off 26 on


87

AM at 2016-01-24 16:17:44

GB no E. offside correct tight but good call – AT THEN MOVES QUICKLY INTO THE S. PENALTY AREA TO JUDGE – VERY GOOD MOVEMENT HERE

Swansea sub – 10 off and 17 on


85

AM at 2016-01-24 16:15:50

No handball against S. and AT has achieved a good view on that last header from Lukaku saved by Fabianski. As he moves across the edge of penalty area to judge – did you notice his movement and view / angle?


83

AM at 2016-01-24 16:13:23

In that last half hearted E. penalty shout it looked like the E. player was backing into the S. player therefore no penalty correct.


81

AM at 2016-01-24 16:11:31

Half hearted appeals in vain for a E. penalty there as it appeared that the S. player was backing into the E. player!


80

AM at 2016-01-24 16:10:15

GB signals that the whole of the ball has gone out of play as that last E. cross came in flight of the ball had gone out of play


78

AM at 2016-01-24 16:08:06

No E. fk as Barry appeals in vain for a fk – AT unmoved by his appeals and moves on to his next judgement


77

AM at 2016-01-24 16:06:44

S. free kick – did you notice AT take his time in the award he was just checking if he could have played an advantage which did not turn out that way.


75

AM at 2016-01-24 16:05:34

AT showing good movement around the field of play – E. throw in

S. SUB 15 OFF 2 ON


69 - 71

AM at 2016-01-24 16:03:51

No penalty kick given to E. as Rangel challenges Barry – slight push on the player in the challenge but for me correct not enough there in that challenge for a penalty kick.

Then the ball is struck at Taylor`s arm which is not in unnatural position therefore no penalty correct


69

AM at 2016-01-24 15:58:54

Again in that last E. move. AT shows good judgement and movement as E. break down the left side – good sprint when needed


Hackett`s Blog

AM at 2016-01-24 15:56:17

Add to that the superb ‘Hackett’s Blog’ where the former top referee and General Manager of the PGMOL continues to offer opinion on how English refereeing standards could be improved, and it is clear why YATR followers know this is the place for all referees to improve their knowledge, understanding and performance.

Yellow Card

Sigurdsson 23 reckless challenge –

Everton Sub – 8 off 23 on


64

AM at 2016-01-24 15:54:23

LB just seen casually walking out along the touchline as play moves away. As an Assistant it is important to portray a sharp and positive in field body language in these situations.


62

AM at 2016-01-24 15:52:30

Taylor takes his time on a throw in and the Everton fans begin whistling hoping for another yellow. One for AT to be mindful and an area for him to work at by communication to the S. Captain – Williams

57

AM at 2016-01-24 15:46:38

E. advantage after a tangle of players – play breaks away and this works for AT


Yellow Card

AM at 2016-01-24 15:45:15

Fabianski was shown the yellow for delaying the restart of play – consuming time! – AT showed the yellow card from a distance as it was clear who it was aimed at and why!


51

AM at 2016-01-24 15:41:40

FK to S. good judgement of foul. This is quickly followed by a Yellow Cardto Fabianski gk of S. No leniency seen here as AT shows that this tactic will not be tolerated today..

GB QUITE CORRECT AS HE RAISES HIS FLAG FOR OFFSIDE AGAINST BAINES


47

AM at 2016-01-24 15:37:52

In that last S. attack good to see AT down the left channel creating a good viewing angle and follows this up with a good advantage to E.


Worth a read..

AM at 2016-01-24 15:36:03

UEFA have finally decided to adopt goal line technology in time for the European Championships this summer.

Its implementation in both Euro 2016 and the Champions League is being applauded by You Are The Ref experts.

However, Keith Hackett, who helped pioneer the introduction of such a system in the Premier League, is puzzled that UEFA chiefs are persisting with extra officials behind each goal…..

Just the one yellow card in the first half

AM at 2016-01-24 15:35:03

AT shows his overall match control of this game just Rangel of S. has been shown the yellow card.


Everton to kick off

AM at 2016-01-24 15:33:26

We are underway..


Half time summary

AM at 2016-01-24 15:31:06

Anthony Taylor has to date shown a good movement around the field of play, he has judged fouls / non fouls very well including the foul by Howard on Ayew 16th minute key match decision correctly judged. He has retained a good composure and body language throughout as I have identified in my blog.

The handball not given decision against Williams close to the half way line. Saw Williams arm/ hand in an unnatural position (outstretched) and whilst the ball was hit at close range for me this was handball. I don’t think AT saw this as it occurred on his left side and for me Lee Betts and or Andre Marriner should have supported AT here. Whilst it could be argued that Swansea still had half the field of play to attack and then score the goal. If the free kick had been awarded then it would have been a different matter? could we have used video review here? when would it have been used? at what stage? one for discussion I am sure.

Both Assistants have been low key but effective such is AT`s overall match control.

44

AM at 2016-01-24 15:15:34

Yellow Card

Good movement from Lee Betts

As play moves forward then LB shows a good movement along the touchline


36

AM at 2016-01-24 15:09:20

For the last goal Sky have decided that it was an Ayew goal but we will come back to the handball appeals which Everton claim and was committed by Williams in the build up to the goal. What are your thoughts?

GOAL!

1-2 Ayew shot on goal deflects off Stones for an own goal

Everton will feel disappointed that they did not get a free kick following the handball by WiIliams in the build up to the goal

 


33

AM at 2016-01-24 15:05:08

AT just got caught up with play there and no handball awarded to Everton against Williams


Thoughts so far?

31

AM at 2016-01-24 15:03:03

. FK to S. and from the free kick a ck is the outcome to S. – GOOD DETECTION BY AT


Lee Betts correct on that last gk decision

AM at 2016-01-24 15:02:00

Although LB looked to be slightly out of line as the ball was played in to Lukaku – you have to be in line with the 2nd rearmost defender to be able to correctly judge offside


Goal kick to Swansea

AM at 2016-01-24 15:00:22

Replays show correct despite Lukaku appeals


Free kick to EVERTON

AM at 2016-01-24 14:59:29

signalled by GB right in front of him good support


Everton Sub

AM at 2016-01-24 14:58:33

Andre Marriner confirms Everton want to do a sub and 11 comes off to be replaced by 22


26

AM at 2016-01-24 14:57:07

GOAL! – Gareth Barry scores to make it

1-1

 


25

AM at 2016-01-24 14:56:21

Good early reading of play from AT , he is reading the game well in the early stages, ck to Everton


24

AM at 2016-01-24 14:55:24

AT showed a good movement and acceleration down the left channel in that last Swansea break away.


21

AM at 2016-01-24 14:54:00

Lee Betts on the far touchline TA side is showing good movement as he retains his position in line with the 2nd rearmost defender


18

AM at 2016-01-24 14:52:06

FK to Everton and the spray is out for the first time as AT manages the fk award. Good restart position seen from AT as he views the defensive wall for any potential hand ball and viewing into the penalty area mindful of ball movement.


16

AM at 2016-01-24 14:48:23

GOAL!

0-1 – Sigurdsson scores the resultant penalty kick to make it 0-1

 


15

AM at 2016-01-24 14:47:09

 

Howard fouls Ayew and AT is spot on to award a penalty kick to Swansea


14

AM at 2016-01-24 14:45:57

Swansea throw in – again AT looks positive in his award as there was challenge to this decision and as a referee it is always good to be positive and decisive with your decision making process – hand / arm signal


12

AM at 2016-01-24 14:44:11

Britton careless on Barkley AT well placed to judge quickly in to calm matters – good preventative refereeing seen here.


11

AM at 2016-01-24 14:42:46

Good tackle by Rangel. AT well placed to judged a fair challenge – good reading of foul / non foul here


9

AM at 2016-01-24 14:41:32

Besic is down on the ground looking injured and play is rightly stopped as he then leaves the field of play to be replaced by No. 15 Cleverley


Todays Assistants

AM at 2016-01-24 14:39:27

Lee Betts (LB) is on the far touchline – technical Area side and Gary Beswick (GB) is on the near touchline


5

AM at 2016-01-24 14:36:25

Good advantage played from AT  to Swansea with a good and clear signal, good early reading of play


3

AM at 2016-01-24 14:35:29

Besic hits the post in a quick breakaway


2

AM at 2016-01-24 14:35:01

AT well switched on there as the Everton goal kick was touched by another Everton player within his teams defending penalty area. So a retaken gk is correct well done AT you are well switched on!


1

AM at 2016-01-24 14:32:55

Focus concentration and to be switched on right from the kick off are a key attribute for a referee and his team. Let us hope that all officials are ready and prepared today for all eventualities!


Swansea kick off

AM at 2016-01-24 14:30:27


Ready for kick off then our best wishes go to...

AM at 2016-01-24 14:30:14

Our very best wishes go to Anthony and his team today from everyone at YATR…we hope the ball runs kindly for you…


Anthony Taylor

AM at 2016-01-24 14:25:41

Last weekend Anthony Taylor stepped in at late notice to replace a colleague for the Championship game between Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United.

A lapse of concentration resulted in Anthony making a major error, which he may well regret for the rest of his career. The proof of Taylor’s bouncebackability was his early return to a game, taking charge of the FA Cup clash between Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur.

To his great credit he did what was expected and that, of course, is to park his error and get on with a new challenge.
