One Reply to “Cardiff City v Manchester City Match Officials”

  • A woeful performance from Mason and his team. A clear red card missed for Bennett’s shocking assault on Sane and another awful decision from Simon Beck to declare Sane offside and deny Bernardo Silva’s goal. A) He was not offside B) As such he could stand or run where he liked in front of the keeper. Remember this is the same guy who in 2015 missed Kyle Walker, then at Spurs, standing a yard offside on his side of the pitch when he received the ball in the build up to a Spurs equalising goal.

    I really would like to see the assessor reports on these incidents.
