No this isn't a 'let's blame it all on the referee' thread.

Considering I'm seeing comments like 'never seen a referee influence a game so much as today' on Twitter im not too sure that's all that fair.

Alright a few of his calls went again us and there were definitely 2 or 3 wrong calls, but I really didn't think he was THAT bad. For the abuse he got at the end especially.

It was a heed player that he gave a red...

I wouldn't say he had a good game but to say he effected the result is a bit over the top.

Huge game Monday need to win all 4 now!

I agree with this..Town gave lots is silly niggly fouls away, that the Crowd got upset by but they were fouls. He didn't have that many big calls to make and I thought he got most stuff right.

He set the tone when he booked Dis, for nothing more than touching the player. He then let one of theirs off scot free after a bad challenge.

The Town bookings seemed harsh to say the least, & their players, as they did last season knew how to get a free kick.

Sometimes we're to honest for our own good.

He had a terrible game, but didn't affect the result. Both of their goals were a result of poor defending where we didn't clear our lines and we spurned more than enough chances up front.

Gateshead played the referee very well. Gary Mills sides are drilled with gamesmanship and always have been and the ref didn't have any understanding of the game.
Players come together and one goes down = a foul. They did this time and time again.

I cannot however contest Disley's yellow. It was a caution at any level and he was rightly booked. Pearson on the other hand? Awful decision which brought him a yellow for saying Rankine led with his elbow. Rankine pushed Pearson high in the chest and they both get booked!

Maybe no decision directly resulted in a goal. ( I did think Arnold may have been fouled in the lead up to their 2nd) but the ref broke up play more efficiently than many opponents have against us this season

I thought the ref was terrible, he was not consistent and we should have had a penalty for the foul and then the handball straight after that. He ruined the game although he didn't score their goals for them!

Inconsistent i would say but we let frustration get the better of us alot today and gave the ref the option too many times, silly little fouls but still fouls.
Also little things like trying to pinch 20 yds on a throw in, moving ball on quick free kicks etc, players know they wont get away with that but they did it, got pulled up rightly and then moan just building your own frustration levels.
