Jon Moss tried to be Mike Dean version 2 today by making himself the centre of proceedings at Leicester. It was a match filled with drama to say the least and being and as an Arsenal fan I was relieved to see Leicester rescue a draw from the jaws of defeat at the death.
John Moss did get the two major decisions right for West Ham regarding the sending off and penalty, even though he will get hate from many quarters. Vardy was totally playing for that, flinging his legs into the defender and theatrically throwing himself to the floor with the dive; I thought it was only foreigners that dived, and the penalty for the grab by Morgan were right in my opinion.
Like Someone wrote on twitter John Moss is consistently inconsistent and I don’t know why Huth didn’t get a penalty for the exact same offence Morgan was adjudged to have committed at the other end of the pitch. Then at the death Andy Carroll conceded a penalty which Ulloa converted well considering all that pressure that was riding on the spot kick.
I can only admire Leicester for battling with 10 players for most of the second half and managing to deal with Andy carroll a player some quarters of the media have described as unplayable and are clamouring for him to go to the Euros. If you stop crosses like I said last week you nullify Carroll to the minimum a memo Arsenal didn’t get at West Ham
Talking of Arsenal , they did what they do best today and managed to drop points at home again because of a Cech error. Those clamouring for him last week making it seem like the team drew because of Ospina in the team and that Cech would have prevented a draw, I wonder what they are saying now. The reality is something is fundamentally wrong with that team, a discussion for another post.
It’s over to you Spurs tomorrow here’s hoping for three points for Stoke!
