London (AFP) – Chelsea have accepted a Football Association charge and been fined £20,000 ($27,000) after players and coaches surrounded the referee at half-time during last week’s 1-1 Premier League draw with Huddersfield.

The Blues were angered when Lee Mason awarded the hosts a corner but then blew for half-time before it was taken by Willian.

Everton boss Roberto Martinez was critical of referee Lee Mason after the Toffees' 1-0 home loss to Stoke and hinted he felt the official should be dropped.

Martinez hit out at Mason's decisions to only yellow-card Jonathan Walters for pulling back Leighton Baines in the first half and then award a penalty to the visitors moments later, having adjudged James McCarthy to have fouled Bojan Krkic.

Howard deserves criticism for his performance against Chelsea

Asking for improvement from a goalkeeper who has conceded six goals isn't brain surgery. For the last couple of seasons, Tim Howard has been rightly heralded as one of the best goalkeepers in the league. His performances in the World Cup, particularly against Belgium, elevated him to icon status in the USA.

Starting with the early kick off at the KC Stadium, Vincent Kompany was sent off after just 10 minutes for bringing down Nikica Jelavic, therefore denying a goal scoring opportunity.

I am not surprise to hear that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has been charged by the Football Association for allegedly questioning the integrity of referee Lee Mason.

In his post-match comments following the Boxing Day defeat at Manchester City, the Liverpool boss appeared to question whether it was correct to have an official from Greater Manchester in charge of the game.

I expect Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will be getting a call from the FA in regards to his comments after yesterday's 2-1 defeat at Manchester City.

Rodgers, who is not known not hammering officials after a game launched a scathing attack in his post-game press conference calling the officials' performance "horrendous" and questioning the appointment of a referee (Lee Mason) from Greater Manchester.

Manchester United surged closer to a 20th English league title on Sunday, opening an eight-point lead by beating Queens Park Rangers 2-0 while floundering neighbor Manchester City lost 1-0 at Arsenal.

Having spent most of the season in City's shadow in the Premier League, United has eclipsed its big-spending rival to take control of the Premier League title race.

Most entertainment industries, and football is no longer a competitive sport but rather a corrupted spectacle, select their best actors for the major theatrical extravaganzas.

Ah! But the Premier League is different.

On a day with huge global television coverage due to both the holidays and the absence of many other leagues, the EPL gave us Lee Mason to ruin one game (Mason lives just fifteen minutes from Old Trafford and is yet to referee a Man Utd defeat) and PC Martin Atkinson who, in his old day job, could have arrested Mario Balotelli three times in the first half for actual bodily harm but chose instead to try to keep his beloved Chelsea's 4th place hopes alive instead of applying the rules of the game.

There's apparently a bit of disagreement about whether or not Liverpool performed that poorly yesterday some maintain that they weren't necessarily that bad, and had they not had the potential go-ahead goal waved off by Lee Mason, they'd have pushed on to get the win. I'm still of the opinion that they were an embarrassing calamity for most of the match and gave a poor account of themselves, tired or unlucky or whatever else.

All things considered, this past week or two has been rather forgettable for Liverpool FC, save for one or two items of note.

After a frustrating 0-0 home draw against Stoke City, helped in part by a disturbingly inept refereeing performance from Lee Mason and a whole host of unpunished rugby challenges from the away side, the Reds' seniors largely jet-setted off to all corners of the globe to proudly embrace the shirt of their nation and cement their status as some of each country's best players in the land.

Another typical match against Stoke. Another typical match from Lee Mason. And another all-too-typical match from Liverpool.

It gets boring to say Stoke are Stoke are Stoke, but Stoke were so very Stoke and Mason let them get away with it. Liverpool played into their hands in the first half, and couldn't convert its chances in a marginally-improved second half.

Caldwell, a centre back looked like a genius placing the ball into an empty goal to record Wigan's first win at Anfield.

Marko Marin loses control of the ball and lunges in on Stephane Mbia, however despite the high crunching tackle referee Lee Mason only brandishes a yellow card, probably because it was a little over 3 minutes into the game, but I wonder had it been Marin on the receiving end of an Mbia challenge would the official be so lenient.
