Full time summary

CCT at 2017-12-12 23:02:27

As we discussed at half time then Andre has gone on to produce a refereeing performance that displayed the following attributes.

Andre was – Composed, Collected and Calm.

I have mentioned in my blog of all the basic refereeing attributes that Andre has displayed tonight. Namely his judgement of foul / non foul.

He has slowed things down with the award of free kicks when needed and he has not taken any risks in this area, particularly with the difficult playing conditions that continued throughout this game, heavy rain.

Andre`s fitness, positioning  and reading of his game, has certainly been a key factor of his management of this game.

Just the Zanka reckless challenge (52nd minute) was the only challenge worthy of a yellow card tonight as Andre choose to speak to the player instead.

But, as I have previously said no one will probably even remember who the referee was tonight and that is always key to an outstanding refereeing performance.

Quietly efficient with very good penal offence recognition.

Offside has been a key area for both Assistant Referees tonight.

Chelsea offside 9 occasions and Huddersfield 1 occasion.

Both Simon Beck and Scott Ledger have shown excellent support to Andre tonight in this their key area.

Excellent support from Simon Beck who signals handball against the Chelsea player.


85

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:44:12

Moses signalled offside by Simon Beck as the ball goes out of play for a goal kick. Andre decides to award the Huddersfield goal kick. For me Simon Beck is correct to flag for offside and Andre has acknowledged this fact.


84

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:41:45

Closing stages of the game focus and concentration key for all match officials they don’t want to let this one slip away from their positive grasp.

Pedro offside is correct from Simon Beck who is in the right position to make this judgement.

Good acceleration from Andre as Chelsea show a burst in play and Pedro plays the ball just wide of the Huddersfield goal.


65

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:23:27

No foul awarded to Chelsea again is correct, As Andre makes this quite clear to the players close to this area of play.

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:18:46

No foul on Mounie is equally important as when you award a fk. This has been  a key area of Andre`s attributes tonight.


60

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:17:24

In that last Chelsea attack did you notice Andre strive to get in the best viewing position to judge any potential key match decisions.

Willian is offside and correctly signalled by Simon Beck.


52

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:12:04

Zenka fouls Hazard and Andre speaks to Zenka and is not shown a yellow card as Andre attempts to manage this foul but if reckless then surely this has to be a yellow card?

GOAL!

48

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:06:22

Andre has made good ground to go wide left as play dictated.


46

CCT at 2017-12-12 22:05:40

Pedro offside signalled by Simon Beck is correct and he used the edge of the penalty area to assist him in being in the correct position in line with the 2nd rearmost defender to make this judgement. Use pitch markings if they can aide your position, judgement and ultimate reading of offside.


2nd half is away with Andre`s blast of the whistle

Half Time Summary

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:55:16

Andre – Cool, Composed, Collected and Calm.

I have mentioned in my blog of all the basic refereeing attributes that Andre has displayed tonight.

He has slowed things down with the award of free kicks and has not taken any risks in this area, particularly with the difficult playing conditions, heavy rain.

Signals have been an impressive area as has been Andre`s reading of ball in out of play coupled with his positive and confident body language.

Player respect has also been seen towards Andre and his decision making accuracy.

Simon Long and Scott Ledger have got all offside decisions correct and supported Andre well.

39

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:40:57

Good flag signal from Ledger indicates a fk to Chelsea. Good to see Assistant Referees support their referee in these areas when this adds to the team work ethic.

 

 


Heavy rainfall is making playing conditions difficult for the players

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:39:20

Mounie is correctly signalled offside by Simon Beck far side touchline as we view.


15

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:18:07

Hazard is correctly signalled offside by Scott Ledger although correct, he is slightly out of position with the 2nd rear most defender. As an Assistant Referee it is key to be in line with the 2nd rear most defender to make these offside judgements.


Andre Marriner

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:14:47

One of Andre`s key attributes is his reading of the game and his movement and anticipation of play and players.

Keep a view on this area tonight.

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:13:12

1st free kick awarded to Chelsea.


Andre Marriner – Referee

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:11:48

Good early reading of play from our referee tonight as he is allowing the players to get on with their game with little intervention needed or required.


Early focus and concentration from Scott Ledger

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:09:49

How important it is for a Match Official to be switched on and fully focussed from the kick off as Scott Ledger has had 2 key offside decisions to make already. Both correct.


5

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:07:29

Pedro receives a through ball and runs on to put the ball in the Huddersfield goal only to correctly see Ledger raise his flag for offside.


4

CCT at 2017-12-12 21:06:04

Good non offside flag from Ledger as Hazard was on side when the ball was played to him.
