Cant seem to get a start for Ipswich in league. Did come on and get an assist today though which might help his cause.

What cause ? He's coming to the end of his career

88 minutes to propel Ipswich to the top with a game in hand. Amazing sportsman. Could be a decent player at that level for a few seasons yet.

So he’ll need to leave if they gain promotion?

Dont think Ipswich plan on hanging around in League One for long.

Well Kevaluton bee thinks that’s an aposite question. The great thing is that nobody knows.

I might if I knew what it meant (heads off to google)

Nice celebration for his goal yesterday.

Lambert told him not to wear his new boots, so when he scored Judgey took one off and threw it away.

He is still as shadow of what he was but I am just delighted he has managed to resurrect his career.

Not surprising really, i bet they wish they were still playing boring football in the top half of the championship rather than where they currently find themselves. They forced mick mccarthy out and it all went tits up

When people were going on about judge going to ipswich, i said that he equal or better his wages and was told no chance.

Ipswich are another poorly run club

Their season started off well, but before the enforced break was going downhill.

Surprised it hasn’t happened more often, if I’m honest. Imagine being questioned, shouted at and spoken to like sh*t after decisions during a game. I know referees are there to calm things aswell as make the decisions but their only human. What was said to that ref by judge to make him react like that 🤷🏼‍♂️ anyway judge looked like he decided to take a step back 😂 and got booked

Not good by referee Darren Drysdale - as an experienced ref he should have just stepped back but obviously saw the red mist..Think we will be hearing more about this...... :rolleyes:
Watching players pull the referee away makes him lose all credibility in my opinion. ( Used to ref myself but you never let your feelings spill over on the pitch).

Agree strongly speaking as a long-retired ref. When faced with
foolishness by players, I started every b***ocking with "Please....".
Difficult to say "@&8:&/" after that.

Let’s not blow it out of proportion like the media will inevitably do. I’m sure we’ve all seen red at work once but I’d hope we’ve all been given a second chance. Hopefully a fine and a 3 match suspension like the players get, I don’t want to see him losing his job for this.

I'd like to see more of this. Players would stop time wasting and diving if they were scared of the ref. Also would stop the likes of Cooper screaming at them.
The only thing the players should be scared of about the ref is his cards. There’s enough pressure on them without having to be 6ft 2 and capable of dominating players/managers physically.

I agree though- the ref has clearly made an error squaring up to Judge like that but it’s no more than that in my opinion. Maybe a 2 or 3 game ‘ban’ and move on.

Would also add who knows what he’s got going on in his life at the mo. People calling him for to be ‘struck off’ without any context are mad.

great to see Judgey on the BBC Sport front page, anyway (y)

the ref will have to have some sort of discipline, just cos he shouldn't be getting aggressive like that, but it's nothing really (momentary, reined himself in) and hopefully there'll be some push back on player behaviour too... they had a man sent off moments later, a second yellow clearly for something he said... and i think their reaction to that is quite clear, in that they wildly protest before quickly giving it up cos they know they're in the wrong, really...

it had probably been building - there's clear frustration in the Ipswich players (esp Judge) when their handball appeals are rejected...


for the incident itself, it's not a dive by Judge, so it must be for something he says afterwards too...

Berkshire, Lboro was my uni!
I wonder if the ref would square up like that to someone like Tarkowski or Virgil VanDijk (?sp) rather than a 5 foot 4 player.

But on the whole I agree that refs must get so fed up with the constant nagging abuse and would love the respect that some other sports umpires get.

Not the first time referee Darren Drysdale has been "involved" with a player.

"Drysdale attracted media attention in 2007 after Bradford City's Dean Windass received a five match ban for swearing at him in the car park after a home game against Brentford on 2 January. " :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Won't defend the ref but same time they get abuse for 90mins. I think should be a lot more rrespect in the game I know if I was a ref. I'd be throwing out yellow cards for dissent all the time lol

Back to Judge though, that leg break such a pinnacle moment in his career, for all the good he gave us over the few years shame to see him as he is at Ipswich.

So Judge goes down. Doesn't look like contact to me (more that he slipped) so no penalty.

But is his initial reaction that he was fouled and should have had a penalty? Is that why he's angry and presumably said something to the ref?

When I first saw the incident, I thought Alan McCormack had become a referee, as that’s exactly how he would have handled the situation!😊😊😊

Clearly he was not the aggressor in that car park.
There's no link between the Judge incident and the Bradford one.

We know Judge is a feisty character who probably was not best pleased at the booking he was about to receive and I'm sure let that be known, obviously in such a way that Mr Drysdale reacted less like a referee and more like a bloke down the pub after a few sherbets. Obviously the ref will be suitably censured but no real biggy in the grand scheme of things.
It is sad to see Judgey struggling in a mid table Division 1 team remembering the player he was prior to the leg break. Does bring it home just how precarious the career of a professional football player can be. Hope he does enjoy an Indian summer to his career.

I did not suggest there was...I was just stating a fact that Darren Drysdale has been involved with a player before. :sorted:

Darren Drysdale is one of the longest serving referees on the EFL list.

He was appointed to the (Football League) National List of referees in 2004.

By the strict letter of the law about touching referees this -
"Any physical contact with a referee or a linesman will mean either a yellow or a red depending on its severity, as will abusing them verbally or reacting aggressively to decisions.

And one player will be booked if two or more surround an official or confront them face to face."

In that context at least one Northampton player breaks up the scuffle by putting his hand on the ref’s chest, and pushing him away.
Plus at least 2 other players from each team surrounding him, and Judge looks like he was giving him some verbal to trigger the situation.

I reckon about 6 red cards would have sufficed to sort it out!

There’s just no consistency with referees to abide by the rules of the game!🟥🟥🟥🟥🟥🟥 📙✏️Oops, need a new notebook. This one is filled up.

They ought to introduce a social distancing rule of 2 metres around referees.😂

I can't understand why anyone would ever be a referee.

I refereed because after years of playing I wanted to put something back into the game...yes sometimes I had to put up with verbals but on the whole games went fairly well as I used to enjoy friendly banter with players and praise them for good passes or goals. Of course there were the odd games where you think "what am I doing here" but as long as you kept a lid on things you managed. Interaction is an essential in my book although I appreciate that times were somewhat different then.

It would come if this happened, the referees cause their own problems here. If they don't want to be sworn at start booking people for it. It won't take many red cards before it stops happening.

It was Judge who went off towards the ref in the first instance, he’s hardly blameless in all of this

He is/was a sergeant major in the RAF so I imagine he's a hard b*stard and won't take any sh*t. Like all sergeants he's always in the face of people.
