Red Card

Post by QPR_John » Sat Feb 17, 2018 6:59 pm

Can anybody throw light on the red card not seen it discussed anywhere. I'm in the SAR stand and was right above it so not a good angle so it looked no more than a yellow to me and I assumed it was a second but then I realised it was a straight red. I can only think it was off the ground not in control

I agree with you John. It was very harsh and a yellow at most.

The ref had a strange game I felt and at times enraged both sets of supporters. On the subject of supporters, a good turn out for Bolton but they seemed rather reticent.

Phil Parkinson requesting an order of sour grapes to go with the chip on his shoulder... obviously didn't see Smith getting molested in the penatly area at every corner...

Bolton boss Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Manchester:

"Mark Little's (feet) left the ground and he's given the ref a decision to make. Away from home, when you've got the weak officials we had today, it was always going to end up in a red.

"I can see why he's given that one, but I thought the all-round performance of all four officials was very poor.

"Loftus Road is a tight ground, the crowd are on top of you and Ian Holloway's jumping up and down appealing for everything and having a go at the ref at half-time.

"You need strong officials and we didn't have them today. I think if that had been a QPR player it would have been a yellow card."

Here are the strangely edited highlights.

Last angle shows why the tackle was a straight red.

Indeed, The Notlob manager Phil Parkinson should have no complaints when he sees that.

Strange lack of player celebrations to our second goal as well.

It looks much worse in slow motion than it did live. I thought it was just a bit clumsy at first but the slo-mo replay clearly shows he had his feet off the ground and studs showing.

Yes, having seen the highlights it looks a definite red card alright.

TV shows he had both feet off the ground. It could have been a nasty one, though thankfully not. It was both reckless and dangerous. Hence the straight red.

Quite laughable for him to criticise Holloway when he and his assistant were in the officials faces at every opportunity. The fact that neither he nor any of their players really contested the red card said it all.

...form the Upper Loft I thought it was harsh, but now watching the highlights I think he missed Max's legs but it was pretty bad
and dangerous and deserved it....even the guy did not complain and left the pitch....

It was a pretty agricultural challenge to say the least, and Luongo (who from what I saw showed one or two nice bits of twinkly-toed footwork today) could have come a cropper. To be fair, the player himself didn't seem to want to argue, so I don't know why his manager did.

Having set it up, Smith actually looks pissed off when the second (first) goal goes in - adding to Sky's upside down editorial weirdness. It ieminded me of when Clive Allen hit the post from about a yard in that 7-0 drubbing of Burnley back in the day, someone else followed up to score, and all he could do was kick the post in frustration.

Is it strikers' natural selfishness or am I missing something?

Parkinson called the referee a 'homer' and said all the decisions went our way. Exactly why is that not an open and shut case of bringing the game into disrepute by smearing the integrity of the officials? Bitter twat! Accordingly, I look forward to seeing the authorities throwing the book at him and hope his agricultural side slide down the Championship plughole to boot.
