The refereeing decisions made by Ref Martin Atkinson today in the Chelsea Vs Burnley game at Stamford Bridge were beyond appalling. Ashley Barnes should have been warned earlier for his Challenge on Ivanovic. Which means that he should have also been sent off subsequently for the career threatening, stud showing lunge on Nemanja Matic .The ref also missed to award a couple of clear penalty shouts. To miss all this shows so poorly on the deteriorating quality of refereeing in the Barclays Premier league. Is this what the FA calls elite referees.?..baffles me. This petition calls for the immediate removal of Ref Martin Atkinson from the elite panel of referees for the rest of the season and relegated to refereeing in the championship. If teams can be relegated cos of consistently being poor so should referees.
