Referee Watch – Chris Foy

Barring any late changes, Chris Foy of Merseyside will be in the middle for Blues’ game against Blackpool at St Andrews on Wednesday. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Foy has officiated in thirty-four games this season, showing seventy-nine yellow cards and eight reds. He has been in the middle mainly for Premiership games but has taken charge of six Championship games this season, showing seven yellow cards and one red. The red card was shown to Richard Keogh of Coventry City in their 2-0 defeat at the Ricoh to Doncaster Rovers – a decision which didn’t seem to provoke outrage in either the Coventry Evening Telegraph or the South Yorkshire Times.

Last Blues Game Refereed

Chris Foy was in the middle for the 1-0 victory over Leeds at St Andrews back in October, in which he showed yellow cards to Jean Beausejour and Chris Burke. Mr Foy isn’t mentioned either in my match reflections or Colin Tattum’s match report, which I take to be a positive.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last Championship game that Chris Foy was in the middle for was the aforementioned Coventry v Doncaster Rovers game.

Mr Foy has courted some controversy this season; notably sending off Vincent Kompany in the Manchester City v Manchester United FA Cup tie as well as incurring the wrath of Harry Redknapp in the wake of Spurs 2-1 defeat at Stoke City.
