Robert Huth, clean up your act

Replays have gotten very good at determining a player’s intent. When you see close-ups of German international and Chelsea defender Robert Huth you can spot what I am talking about.

Since he returned to Chelsea from injury last season I have seen too many extra pushes, foot swipes, and bullying with size.

No doubt, Huth is a big guy. He’s strong too and he has a powerful foot. Great assets for Chelsea. He’s got talent, and is fast for his size.

He brought more of it to the Confederations Cup in Germany last month though, on 2 occasions he could have seriously injured an opposing player.

He should use size to his advantage, but referees should pay more attention to the bullying. He plays with his elbows too much and is a brute when it comes to defending corners. Football has come a long way and it’s no time to turn back the clock.

So you mean that the referee should watch Huth more than the other players on the pitch?

Huth is

I advise you to watch closely, and judging by the lack of disagreement, except for you, I would suggest I'm spot on.

Just watch the way he uses his elbows.

I agree with the Football Commentator. Huth at times has been totally unprofessional.

An example of this was in the 2003/04 season when Newcastle played Chelsea. He stamped on Alan Shearer's delicate area and that incident was right in the ref's view yet the ref didn't take any action.
