As many will know, my opinions on refs over past seasons were a kind of composite from three or four of us.
That group is no more.
Having to rely on my own opinions is certainly tougher.
To me, the ref was a clear notch below par – hence a base of 5/10.
BUT – against that backcloth – 2 more marks were lost for critical, very poor decisions.
If that was a penalty – we may as well give up. A shocker and probably awarded because of loud appeals by Orient.
At the end, I was convinced that their player (19?) gave a forearm smash just below the Adam’s apple to our man. No red card.
O Malley is a rounded player. My MOTM. I was unable to give out any 6s or lower. Good stuff.
Cox has learned important lessons.
