We Are West Ham Podcast / 134: What the reffing hell was that?! - ft. Mark Halsey

Listen on

Episode notes

West Ham were narrowly beaten 1-0 by Chelsea on Saturday as their hopes of qualifying for the Champions League took a severe knock.
 The Hammers lack of January transfer activity appears to be catching up with them.
 But most of that was forgotten after the game because ten minutes from time referee Chris Kavanagh made the most inexplicable decision ever when he decided to send Fabian Balbuena off for kicking the football during a game of... wait for it... football.
 It was a disgrace and a scandal and another knife in the heart of our great game and decisions like it, along with the appalling application of VAR, are ruining our sport.
 Former Premier League ref Mark Halsey makes his We Are West Ham debut to give his take on the decision and he does not pull any punches.
 Will Pugh, Jame Jones and Tom Edwards are reunited after three weeks where at least one of the lads was absent.
 The guys review the Chelsea game in finite detail. The Name That Game quiz returns.
 And the boys make their Betway charity bets for the Burnley game before Simon Townley from the Turfcast podcast dials in for the opposition view.

West Ham Women season ticket holder Michelle joins to wrap up the show and toast another point for the girls in their push toward WSL survival.
