He was pretty useless but managed to spot the sending off but bottled a penalty for the away site!

Ratings and comments from the Palace match:

Spoil sport. 1 and he did not deserve that. Defo bent and . and as for the dumbarse liner. – Platos

3 from me, liner was sheeite and he overturned that decision, however that said some of his free kicks were baffling including ours for our goal. Good sending off though – SeasideEssexXile

1. Don’t know what he was playing at. Too many times their players jumped and pushed our forwards/midfielders yards away when jumping for a header and nothing’s given….yet the opposite happens and they get a freekick on the edge of the area.

As for Reggie’s booking, I saw nothing amiss. Assistants were a poor do too, giving throw-ins completely the wrong way multiple times.

When he gave Palace that corner in the opening exchanges, I knew we had a right one on our hands.

1 – some really poor decisions, wasn’t helped by the baldy on the line. Our goal didn’t look like a free kick, i’m sure the handball by jacko late on was in the box. Can’t comment on the sending off did he punch welsh? – j_campbell

1 from me ,again another ref who missed their rough house tactics,especially from their number 6 who kept leading in with the elbow and wrapping his arms round Vernon .

Jackos handball was in the area I think he bottled it ,and that phooking liner on the West what a *********, when will we get some homers,we only ever see them at away grounds.

1 from me.

Sex was you watching the ref?

We should have had a pen late on…their right back knocked the ball off for (what should have been) a corner with his elbow………….they got a goal kick? WTF???

The ref was rubbish….first THREE decisions he made were ALL wrong in front of the West. Then later on when he said it was a throw in…..looked at his linesman and gave a limp wristed wave at him…what the Hell was that?

Two decisions were correct…their sending off and Reggies booking.

Yet another 1 to add to the collection. He and his assistants also made numerous mistakes giving a goal kick that was a clear corner and at least three throw-ins given to the wrong team. The sending off was funny though. – BisphamTangerine

1 for me too. From the first minute I could tell he was to be awful. – toronto_pool

3. I thought he was o rite, one of his linesmen though was awful. – bfcluke

0/5 Him and his linos were ****** woeful; they didn’t even appear to know the rules of the game at times! – AbelBFC

That gives Mr G Laws an average men in black rating of 1.3, pretty poor for the man from the North East
