Men In Black - Mike Pike

Men In Black - Mike Pike

Mike Pike took charge of the 1-1 draw between Blackpool and Stoke City on Saturday and was lambasted by Tony Pulis after the match, but how did our forum members think he did?

Ratings:

'1. I think he was trying to make up to Pulis for the late kick off.'

'He missed a lot of decisions in both last thirds of the pitch but this was due to the pace of the game and the fact that Stoke hoofed the ball over the top far too often. 3.5'

'A reasonable enough game. Perhaps he was worried about pulling a muscle like the Stoke lads!!!!! 3 from me.'

'I thought he was a complete homer.
We got about 5 decisions all game.
He also did nothing about Barker being pushed about a mile by one of theirs in the far pen area.....it was right in front of him. 1'

'I'd give him 4.
I thought he was fine and had the home fans howling at him on many occasions because he would not succumb to their appeals.!

'3 for me I thought he was ok'


The above ratings mean he was awarded a score of 2.6 for the match but ultimately lowers his overall Men In Black rating to 2.8 from 3.
