Stoke Manager Looks For FA To Act Against Referees

Stoke manager Tony Pulis has become the latest in a long line of Premier League managers who have spoken out against the match officials that are taking control of the games in the top league in the English game, saying that he wants the Football Association to introduce a new referee relegation scheme.

Pulis spoke out about the quality of the referee’s within the Premier League after claiming that he was on the receiving end of yet another stream of poor and incorrect decisions.

The angry manager told the media that he wants the FA to introduce a new scheme that will see match referees that don’t meet the standard expected within the Premier League being relegated to the lower leagues in order to make the Premier League a fairer place to play.

Pulis told BBC Radio 5 “Every club should have one vote annually and mark referees after every game. Then they have a chance of being relegated to the Championship. It would be a great system.”

The backlash is thought to come from the fact that the club have been on the wrong side of two major decisions that would have changed the flow of their games against Sunderland and Everton.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson are thought to be willing to offer their support for the new system but there is nothing that can be put in place until the FA meet again and decide on the suggestion.

Pulis also highlighted that with the chance of referees being relegated to the lower leagues, there would be space for the top performing referees within the Championship to be able to be promoted to fill.

Pulis said “If the top three (referees) in the Championship got the opportunity to work at the top level, I think it would clear a few referee’s minds.”
