The last Blues game Mr Tierney was in the middle for was the opening day defeat to Watford. Mr Tierney booked six players – Paul Robinson, Dan Burn, Tom Adeyemi and Lee Novak of Blues along with Almen Abdi and Christian Battochio of Watford.

    I know his mate a fellow ref from Wigan and he asked me how he had ‘performed’ at Blues v Watford I said he was too pedantic too many yellow cards too late in the game and he didn’t punish Watford fior continuous diving, and play acting. We will see tomorrow if on TV he refs fairly?

  • Jazzzy786 says:

    Ref seems a bit card happy at over 2.5 per game. He was pathetic in Watford game. Let’s hope we don’t have a game ruined by a rubbish referee.

    I’m gonna go 2-1 win for Blues in yellows and goals, A win for Blues to make it difficult for Mcdermott.
    A Leeds fan said to me today Leeds are not geared up to deal with big Zig and will struggle if he gets a game…let’s hope so KRO

    • StaffsBlue says:

      Apart from Warnock, Leeds have a very young back four…. and the experience of Burke and Zigic could well undo them. If Burke is on his game, he should give Warnock the runaround.
