Men In Back - Mr Andy D`Urso

Men In Back - Mr Andy D`Urso

Monday night`s match was referred by Andy D`Urso you may have seen him on match of the day as he normally plies his trade in the Premiership. D`Urso was most likely was assigned this fixture as the game was live on Sky. The F.A. wouldn`t want to see some like Mr I Williamson or Mr T Kettle in charge showing the general footballing public that the standard of referring in the second tier of English football is at times of a very poor standing, offside from a throw-in??

Andy D`Urso had a rating of 3.7 before the game, putting him in second place behind K Hill, lets see how the Vital members rating him for the Scunthorpe match.

2.5 - Got the sending off spot on IMO. Lad was out to hurt Crainey. Missed 2 x definite penalties though, and at the end ,the 2 tackles from behind both on Wes, both by their same player warranted a booking far earlier than he gave it. Also that Pattison for them Reminded me of Billy Sharpe last season, spiteful little bloke. Needed speaking to by the ref but got away with it all night. - SeasideEssexXile

3.5 - The sending off was a pivotal point in the game and he got it right. As for the Scunny goal - questionable to say the least. sandgroanun

3.5 - The red card was justified, the Scuny goal was given by his assistant. - BisphamTangerine

3 - I dont think Rabs arm movement did him any favours - it appeared he was scooping it out of the net and of course the nets themselves were nearly coming out of the front. That guy who was sent off wound me up the way he sauntered off- lanerossi

3 - From me ,would have been 4 but he took notice of that shiiiite liner ,I'll give you platos's score now -5- pickering_hat_trick

3.5 - I'll give him a middle of the range 3/5; he's had far better games when refereeing us, but then again, we've had far worse referees than him this season, and as such, it'd be unfair to mark him lower, putting him in the company of such cretins! - AbleBFC

2.5 - Average marks for me. Right with the sending off but wrong with the goal (linesman's fault) and could have done more for the persistent shirt-tugging on Wes and other niggling fouls that went unpunished. - Jerry

4 - Hardly did anything wrong, and I didn't notice him at all, which is unusual!! Got the red card spot on imo. Just a little gripe; he was a bit wishy washy with his advantages!! - Toronto_Pool

4 - Agree with Jack bfcuke

3.5 - He's better than most, but last nights wasn't his greatest. - GlasgowTangerine

3.5 -spot on with the sending off but no way was the WHOLE ball over the line - Slippy99

3.5 - Actually thought not too bad - despite me losing my voice screaming at him last night. A lot better than some of the muppets we've had - Worsleyseasider

3.5 - Got the decisions about right. Thought the sending off was a little harsh but could see why he red carded him. The goal was given by the liner and it was guesswork at best. - bollieboy

As mentioned before Andy D`Urso had a rating of 3.7, his score from the Scunthorpe match was 3.35 bring his score down to 3.37 which in tern brings him down to 5th in the table.

For Saturday`s derby match another Premiership referee has been put in charge Mr M Clattenburg who is placed in position number 6 in the MIB table.

Not suprised Uriah Rennie isn't on the list, I'm guessing you've not had the pleasure of having him referee a Tangerine game yet? Or has he been relegated from your list for being atrocious.
