And even when it was non-contact, he still managed to give Swansea a free kick!
There was an incident in the 2nd half, right in front of the tunnel, Bidwell anticipated a shoulder charge with Ledson. However, Ledson saw what he was going to do and so put the brakes on. Bidwell threw himself to the floor anyway and the ref duly obliged and gave the free kick!
There was another infront of the IPS with Laird got a slight push in the chest as I think Earl took the ball of him.
Laird threw himself backwards on the floor holding his face. The referee waited and then gave them a free kick.
Another was when a Swansea player fell over, not fouled, caught the ball as he led on the floor but instead of giving hand ball gave them a free kick.
He must have come from the Trevor Kettle school of refereeing.
Thankfully we still won.
What is the point in having new guidance in the Premier League to let games flow whilst we still have to put up with this egotistical numpties.
