For those of you who don't remember, he's the nice man who made our away trip to Leyton Orient last season a painful experience to watch.

He was so sh**e it was untrue. A real homer - the worst I've ever seen.

For Birmingham as well?

A game that's likely to be quite physical littered with minor incidents, the last thing you need on paper is a ref who'll blow things out of all proportion.


Thinking about it, if a manager gets sent to the stands this season there isn't any room for them?

or in Madley's case, a ref who'll refuse to give any decisions to Brentford at all. Fantastic, especially if uber-thug Paul Robinson is playing.

This guy is a real ****er. No red needed and definitely a penalty for us not given

Unfortunately, I think it was a definite red card and penalty. Poor judgement by Craig - and so early in the match. The ref was poor in other decisions regularly throughout the match though.

Absolute *****. Linesmen new road side also, didn't know what he was doing, so he just decided to guess. Wrong guess everytime.

Bidwell gives the winger a little tug back - yellow card. Winger jumps in and takes Bidwell out, nothing. Throw after throw after throw was taken 10 yards ahead of the play. He really was crap. Got the pen right but still not sure about a red card - Clayton didn't have the ball and there's no guarantee that he would have got to much before Button.

No red needed?

The penalty and sending off were the only things he got right.
Have to agree, was a very sloppy mistake from Craig with a poor back pass and CD does what he does, gets in front of the defender and goes down. Earned plenty of Pens for us doing that in the last few years only we missed them.

Other than that he was a disgrace.

Would have thought he'd learnt a lesson after Orient away last season - to not be a homer. However took things to the other extreme today. Was an awayer, if there is such a word.

deffo a red....Clayton did have the ball and even managed to stretch and head it back softly to Button......if Craig hadnt pulled him back he would have connected fully with the header......who knows where it might have gone though!

painful to watch, should not be refereeing at this level. I kind of wish the penalty hadn't been a penalty though so I could moan more.

Absolute joke of a ref

BBC London said he was atrocious and shouldn't even be refereeing in the football league!!

All of the officials today were absolutely appalling. The club should be making some sort of official complaint because the ref must be a Birmingham fan. Disgrace that professional sportsmen are reliant on a useless **** like him.

If he is, he's moved - last year he was big Orient fan.

Absolutely diabolical refereeing display and I don't even think that is a biased point of view. Stonewall penalty denied, no need for the red card although I do think it was a penalty. I thought now we were in the championship we may get a better standard of officiating. Today's ref felt like league one again.

Worst display of refereeing I've seen since Orient away last season. Pitiful and inconsistent. This man should not be reffing League football.
Can't say much for the New Road linesman either.

Would like to give the ref the benefit until the FLS tonight but penalty seemed soft and the early red a harsh double whammy against us.
Especially early 2nd half when he denied us a valid and similar claim.
Straight after the pen I am sure a Birmingham swinging arm was seen by the ref. The result, free kick to us, and a talking to. Inconsistent.

Dansonesque performance . Keep hearing this Bobby Madley is a rising star of the refereeing world. Can't see anything but incompetence myself

both the ref and the braemer lino were utterly inept. thought the standard of the officials would go up in a higher division but clearly not.

A truly dreadful performance, summed up for me by a strange incident in first half stoppage time, when he gave Brum a free kick about 10 yards outside the box. He proceeded to pace out the ten yards, but after ten paces found himself about a yard short of where the wall was standing. Rather than lose face, he instructed the wall to move forward! Don't think I've ever seen a ref do that before. Total incompetent.
