Halsey disagrees with Tiote decision

Former Premier League referee Mark Halsey believes Mike Jones and his officials made a mistake when they ruled out Cheick Tiote’s stunning first half strike in Sunday’s Premier League clash against Manchester City.

• Ryder: Tiote's 'goal' distracts from an improved performance
• Mooney: Tiote's disallowed goal could prove costly for City

Tiote believed he had drawn his side level after a crisp strike beat City keeper Joe Hart, but the officials decided Yoan Gouffran was in an offside position and ruled the goal out.

The decision caused angry scenes on the touchline as Newcastle manager Alan Pardew vented his frustrations, with Halsey speaking out against one of his former colleagues by criticising his final judgement on the incident.

“It was a tough call but the goal that was disallowed does not meet the criteria to disallow the goal,” Halsey told talkSPORT radio. “Technically, the goal should have stood. That is the law.

“Interfering with an opponent is defined as: preventing an opponent from playing or being able to play the ball. For example, by clearly obstructing the goalkeeper’s line of vision or movement

“The assistant referee didn’t flag straight away. In his opinion, that was a perfectly good goal, but the referee went over, had a chat and came to the decision that Gouffran was interfering with play.

“The fourth official cannot get involved in an incident like that and going by the criteria set down for interfering with play this season, that goal should have stood.”

Halsey went on to claim ‘technology has to start coming in’ to help officials made the correct calls on incidents like the disallowed Tiote goal, with Newcastle boss Pardew refusing to accept the version of events provided by referee Jones.

“I have gone and seen the referee. I was right behind the shot, as the fourth official was, and it was a clean strike,” stated Pardew.

“It was a great moment for this football club to get a goal like that, so if you are going to chalk it off, you need to make sure that you are getting the point right.

“My point was did he think Gouffran was interfering with Joe Hart, and he said, ‘He was in the six-yard box’, and I get that. The guy was recovering from an offside position, he didn’t want anything to do with the play, but he is not interfering with Joe Hart’s vision. In fact, it goes on the inside of him.

“The Man City players are impairing Joe’s vision, not Gouffran. It’s a real technical matter that he’s talking about here, and to chalk a goal off of that quality, that takes some doing, I think, and it did set the tone for the rest of the game.”
