Men In Black - Andy D'Urso

Men In Black - Andy D'Urso

Andy D'Urso was referee of Blackpool's historic 1-0 away win at Leicester City, but how did he do?

The last time D'Urso refereed a 'Pool game was the playoff final against Yeovil where he managed a men in black rating of 3.5

This time he seems to have done a bit better after a solid showing at The Walkers Stadium.

What the forum members thought:

I'll start us off with a 3. Glad no bookings, thought he missed a fair few pushes etc but good decision for the goal. Disappointed with the amount of extra time allowed though.

3 for me. He did not have much help from the liners.
Platos

4/5, on the basis that 5 minutes was probably the correct amount of time to play at the end, due to the injury...
Toronto

4 from me at least he let play carry on when their player was injured ,how many times does it happen a player goes down when they are in trouble to get play stopped. Missed a bit of the physical stuff from De Vries. Should have booked Hume for impersonating Keigan.
PickeringHatrick

4/5 - As mentioned he did miss some of the fouls from De Vries against Jacko and Evatt. Overall very pleasing let's hope it continues!
JCampbell

4/5. I believe he was spot on with the extra time, and allowed the game to flow.

BFCLuke gave him a 5 as well, which meant his average score for the City game was 3.9

That now leaves his overall MIB rating at: 3.7 - one of the best referees we have come across since starting the feature last January.

funny how perceptions can differ. D'Urso is usually useless when he refs at the Walkers - and not just here either. In that sense he failed to disappoint yet again. How can you continue playing for over a minute when a defender is laying injured in the middle of the box, clearly injured. i dont blame your players as it is the referees job to stop the game but D'Urso continues to prove to be one of the most inept, mediocre and incompetent officials ever to grace the beautiful game. Add Stiles, Rennie, Dowd and Clattenberg to that list aswell. Thank God that was only the first game of the season - good luck for the rest of it. Good to see the boy Grayson back again.

Thought he was lenient towards Leicester with quite a bit of pushing clearly visible. That said Ngotty was the ebst player by a country mile, was the right time of the season to play you, I feel Allen will not have a long reign there though. Onwards + Upwards

I'd have given him a three myself; he had a decent game, but was let down by the lino nearest to us.
