Referee Watch – Paul Tierney

Barring any late changes, Paul Tierney will be in the middle for Blues’ game against Bristol City at St Andrews on Tuesday. Here is a look at his stats.

Season Performance

Mr Tierney has officiated in twelve games this season, showing thirty yellow cards and two reds. Of those games, three have come in the Championship and have yielded six yellow cards. Last season, Mr Tierney took charge of thirty-six games last year, and showed one hundred and four yellow cards and eleven reds; of those, nine were in the Championship and in those games Mr Tierney showed thirteen yellow cards and two reds.

Last Blues Game Refereed

The last Blues game Mr Tierney took charge of was the 2-2 draw between Blues and Derby at St Andrews on the third of March this year. In that game, Mr Tierney showed yellow cards to Curtis Davies, Marlon King and Nikola Zigic. It’s never great when you can remember a ref and I remember him well – booking Zigic despite the Serb getting fouled and Marlon King being clambered all over all game. The fact I slated him in my match reflections doesn’t surprise me; Colin Tattum similarly agreed that the ref didn’t give us anything.

Last Championship Game Refereed

The last game at Championship level refereed by Mr Tierney was the game between Middlesbrough and Hull on 23 October which finished 2-0 to Boro. In that game, Mr Tierney showed just one yellow card, to Emmanuel Ledesma of the home side. He isn’t mentioned bar one positive comment in the GazetteLive report whilst the Hull and East Riding News are a little more critical.

    Funny how the name “Paul Tierney” contains the words “Prat”, “Inept”, “Unreal” and “Urinate”.

    When he booked Zigic,I thought what an idiot Zigic was for diving in such a great position. The incident happened at the railway end and i sit in the Tilton. I later saw it again, on television and quite clearly saw that Zigic was kicked by the Derby defender,with the referee,with a clear view, no more than 10 yards away. It was the first time,in many years of playing and watching football,that i ever questioned a referee’s honesty !
