High time this fella was penalized for his behaviour on the sideline, today it extended beyond the sideline. He should be in the stand the next day.
Mod Note: Davy Fitzgerald is obviously a controversial figure and people will have strong opinions about him. Just a reminder that personal abuse of managers is not allowed and will probably end up in the poster being banned.
He should and so should the ref. Missed 3 blatant fouls in the lead up to the goal
Agree with you, he's an awful ref. Has made some bad calls against Tipp also mind you and I have yet to see Michael Ryan coming onto the field shouting at him and shouldering Wexford players.
He's riding Wexford. Bubbles should be back up in the stand. Only intent was to shoulder a prone man to the head.
He didn't shoulder him in the head though! Ref certain.y isn't riding Wexford no matter which way it can be looked at.
He can do as much whinging as he likes now. The game is up for Davy & Wexford.
Blatant red in the lead up to the second goal. The helmet was interfered with. Davy was well within his rights to be agitated, though he may have overstepped the mark by coming onto the field.
He had no intent on the ball. His only focus was on polaxing the Wexford player with a shoulder straight to the front of a player lifting the ball. A very dangerous tackle that deserved a red
That goal shouldn't have been allowed, but the other 4 were fine.
Fitzgerald doesn't have a goal scoring strategy and goals were what were needed today.
Dangerous yeah, red no. But it's off topic anyway, this is about Davy being unable to control himself in a high pressure situation.
30 seconds of handbags... be flogged to death now for a week, something for the auld mollies to waffle about.
In fairness to davy he was aproached twice by tipp payers. It was up to the officials to sort not the players.
The 2nd goal came from a very bad call from the ref and any manager would have been incensed.
the media cause a lot of the hype around davy, camera always seem to seek him out. Imo dan shanahan isnt much better on the sideline and even brian cody has had his day.
davy sholdnt have gone out but the abuse levelled at him on social media is way over the top.
no mention of his interview after the match which was great and then on the pitch surrounded by fans taking time for pics.
Nothing to do with davy or either team today.
I just think he gets a very bad press at times. Always the negative with davy.
