Monk Slams Referee Beeby Over Red Card

Monk Slams Referee Beeby Over Red Card

Swansea captain Garry Monk has slammed Northamptonshire official Richard Beeby for buckling under crowd pressure that led to his dismissal on Saturday against Charlton.

For the first time in his career the level headed defender saw red after picking up two yellow cards in under three minutes to round off a disastrous start to the new leauge campaign.His first yellow was for a challenge on Luke Varney which the former Southampton man has accepted but his second yellow is hard one to swallow.

Monk does believe the reaction of the vastly experienced Matt Holland played a big part in his dismissal.

Monk Told The WM:

'It`s something I call crowd syndrome from the ref.He has gone with the reaction of the crowd and their player. watched it on the video and we both did the same thing. Neither of us went in with two feet and we both made contact with the ball.I came out with the ball and, because I had won it, got up immediately. But the ref then came straight out with another yellow card. I probably should have stayed down like their player. It would have been interesting to see what decision he made if I had stayed down as well."

'In the 15 years I have played football, I have never gone in two-footed.But you are going to get that one in 20 when maybe the ref is in a bad position and pulls out a card.I accept full responsibility for it though. I have got two yellow cards and made it difficult for the boys. But, as a defender, if I ever pulled out of a 50-50, I would be very disappointed in myself to be honest.'


Swansea City will face Brentford in the first round of the Carling Cup tomorrow evening kick off at 7.45 pm.

He can't too much with the lunge he did for the second yellow, straight after his first? he should know better.
