Men In Black
Fussy official, Ray Olivier (West Midlands)took charge of Blackpool`s 2-0 defeat at Saltergate against Chesterfield. How did our forum members rate him?
Well, not very well in all honesty! All of our members who rated the ref gave him 1 out of 5.
The referee from the West Midlands always attracts attention to himself when he officiates and didn`t disappoint on a cold and rainy New Years Day (hopefully the weather wasn`t a sign as to the type of year The Seasiders are to have).
One decision which infuriated Pool fans was when Olivier stopped play and awarded Blackpool a freekick when Wes Hoolahan was bursting through on goal when the game was at 0-0.
The referee gave 12 fouls against the 'pool and issued 2 yellow cards.
Ray Olivier - 1/5
