Mr C Webster was the man in black for Blackpool`s 1-1 draw with Bristol City. How do our forum members think he did?

Ratings:

“2 – appeared oblivious to pushing of Pool players then blew up for every ‘push’ against a team of giants. Correct in the booking, wronmg to stop the game for the alleged injured player, and incorrect in his starting of the game after that incident. Not one I’d like to see again at Bloomers in a hurry”

“2 from me missed a lot of their Fizzical stuff. Gave a free kick when Lee Bungle dived in the box but did not book him. I thought the booking for Jacko was a tad harsh considering what had gone unpunished during the game.”

“I’m going for a 3. Some silly little things went on throughout the game from him which were annoying. He should have let the game go on when Trundle was bursting through and Jacko was tugging his shirt, good for us I suppose! Why on earth we had to kick the ball back to City when their left back went down is beyond me. Apart form those two main incidents, and niggly stuff, he did ok.”

“2.5 Average. Missed alot. The linesman (again) seemed to flag for offsides VERY late. He didnt book Trundle cos they have to be 100% certain they are cheating, sorry simulating! The reason is, if booked video evidence can be used to prove contact. If that is proved the booking is recinded AND the ref gets a mark against him. They can however just give a free kick!”

“2/5. Started the game well. As it went on, it became apparent that he didn’t have a clue. Some blatant fouls missed, a few in the early stages too, but moreso in the 2nd half it seemed. Couple of really strange decisions made and as has been said, not helped by the ineptitude of linesmen…sorry, ‘assistants’.”

Added to that ratings of 1 and 2 from Platos and Abel respectively, Mr Webster has a MIB rating of 2.1
