Blackpool's Men in Black

Blackpool's Men in Black

Trevor Kettle was the man in black at Blackpool's 2-1 defeat away at Sheffield Wednesday, but after 10 minutes he limped off with an injury, so fourth official G Atkins took his place and will be the ref to be marked.

Vital Quotes and Ratings:

'Poor decisions for both sides. Southern's booking wasn't needed it was a really hard tackle but fair a fair one. He went on to make more mistakes and created a new rule which allows opposition players to climb on top of Scott Vernon or hold him down when challenging for a header. There was a penalty shout which i didn't get a great view on due to a pillar in the way but when 6 players go up to him and complain you know he's done something wrong.'

'I'm feeling generous today, so I'll give the clown a more than generous 1. How he could book Southern for a great tackle then 3 mins later not even speak to the player that ploughed straight through Wes, is absolutely astoundingly incompetent, or just plain bent!'

'I hope they show the Southern booking to morrow.

It's a disgrace. Both players got contact with the ball at the same time.You could hear the ball thud. The wedndsday played fell about like he had got shot the ref gave a free kick,the croud got on his back so to justtify the free kick he booked him. He had no intention of booking in the first place.

The standard of refereeing in this country has fallen to a low.

The FA will do FA because otherwise they would have to work for there over inflated wages.'

'The Wednesday fan who jumped out of the stand to take over does not deserve a rating - as bad as we have had for a long time. The Southern booking, the missed penalty, free-kicks awarded at random to Wednesday, playing only 3 minutes of injury time when a minimum of 4 was put up, etc.

A total buffoon.

Still no excuse for the poor performance by the majority of today's team.'


This means that G Atkins gets the lowest ever rating for a MIB, with a rating of 1.
