Ipswich Town manager Paul Jewell singled out a female official for criticism last night, following his team’s 2-1 defeat at Birmingham City.
Online Casino experts note how Jewell was convinced that his team should have had a penalty, with his frustrations becoming even more prominent when Nikola Zigic popped up with a 91st minute winner for the home side.
Speaking afterwards, Jewell said: “To every man, but not a woman it was a penalty.”
Although the referee didn’t have a good view, the lineswoman, or whatever she’s called, had a great view.”
“It’s a stonewall penalty and it’s a sending-off but he [referee Robert Lewis] didn’t give it. You better ask him why he didn’t give it, or her why she [lineswoman Amy Fearn] didn’t give it.”
There is of course plenty of pressure on Jewell at the moment. Ipswich have lost 10 of their last 13 games to sit 20th in the Championship, just three points above the relegation zone.
Inevitably, this has led to speculation regarding Jewell’s future at the club, with many fans starting to turn on their manager.
As for Birmingham manager Chris Hughton, he was very satisfied with the three points as his team push closer and close to a play-off spot.
He was also delighted with yet another late goal. So far this season, even those studying Casino Games Online will be keen to note that his team have scored 17 times in the last 15 minutes of games, with many coming in injury time.
Speaking about this after the game, he said: “The late, late show, yes, yet again. If you are scoring late in the game it certainly shows something: that you have got enough character and resilience in the team, who also want to protect this very good home record.”
“Is there a recipe for it? No, but we will start kicking off 75 minutes late from now on!”
Next up for Birmingham is a trip to Millwall, while Ipswich have a home game against Ian Holloway’s Blackpool.
