Palace tripped at Leicester, LVG demands HPL.

HPL result shown in brackets, with official real-life score first.

Games with an HPL scoreline change in red.

Saturday, October 24

Arsenal 2-1 Everton (2-1) Referee: Lee Mason

Aston Villa 1-2 Swansea City (1-2) Referee: Neil Swarbrick
The soon to be sacked Tim Sherwood reckoned Fernandez should have been sent off for butting Micah Richards. That seemed over the top but whatever the Argentine said was clearly unforgivable as far as Richards was concerned – judging by the dust up that ensued in the tunnel after the final whistle and resulted in an FA charge for the Villa skipper.

Leicester City 1-0 Crystal Palace (1-1) Referee: Mike Dean
Zaha gets booked for making a meal of a nailed-on certain foul. It should have been an equalising penalty for Palace.

Norwich 0-1 West Brom (0-1) Referee: Kevin Friend

West Ham 2-1 Chelsea (2-1) Referee: Jonathan Moss
Fantastic decision by the linesman, who never get mentioned by name on the box unless they do something very bad, to disallow Fabregas’ strike for offside. The post-match analysis, including the slide-rule, proves that the Spaniard’s knee is to blame. As for Matic’s two yellows = red, how stupid can a player be when he has been booked already? The sending to the stands of manager Jose Mourinho and coach confirms the growing indiscipline within the Chelsea dressing room.

Stoke City 0-2 Watford (0-2) Referee: Martin Atkinson

Sunday, October 25

Bournemouth 1-5 Tottenham (1-5) Referee: Roger East

Liverpool 1-1 Southampton (1-1) Referee: Andre Marriner

Manchester United 0-0 Manchester City (0-0) Referee: Mark Clattenburg
So Louis van Gaal needs no convincing. ‘This is why we want technology to help the referee’ is the best way to paraphrase the Dutchman as he complained Manchester United had been robbed of derby day victory at home to neighbours and title favourites City. He was, of course, refereeing to the moment when Herrera goes tumbling under challenge from Sterling but is booked rather than awarded the penalty everyone in Red demanded.

HP: At first watch. Yes. Second watch. Maybe. Third watch: No. The Spaniard clearly moves his leg towards his opponent’s, for no other reason that to make contact and go down. The subtle difference between this and, say, Bojan the week before for Stoke at Swansea, is that the Potters man merely delays a movement, and gets clattered as a result, as opposed to Herrera’s unnatural, unnecessary action that makes contact unavoidable no matter what the defender does, including nothing at all. That’s the HPL call, backed by MoTD 2’s ranting and raving Danny Murphy, who obviously in real life would not be able to be a TV ref where Manchester United is concerned. But for now, we will go with hiss, ours and the majority view. The Sun’s Real Table disagrees!.

Sunderland 3-0 Newcastle (3-0) Referee: Robert Madley
Coloccini’s charge and deliberate barge on Stephen Fletcher is a penalty for HPL. But as for the red card this is surely a classic example where the ability to review such match crunching decisions would do nothing but good for a contest. It was a harsh straight red says everyone but the Mackems and Sky’s Graeme Souness. It was not a clear goalscoring opportunity because the Newcastle keeper was in the near vicinity and likely to get to the ball before the bearded Fletch. It is, however, double jeopardy, and more often than not can ruin a potentially cracking game. To compound a miserable day, the Magpies maybe could have had a penalty 30 seconds earlier when Cattermole forearm takes down ??. Danny Murphy says no penalty for Newcastle, and reckons the Coloccini moment is probably not a penalty and definitely not red. Jenas thinks both are harsh.
