Well, maybe it's not that drastic, but some of his decisions really left me scratching my head.
First of all, let me say that I'm really not one for blaming the refs for a loss (barring the 2009 CL Semi-Final). And even though Foy made some staggering calls—and non-calls—Chelsea still could and probably should have come back to win this game.
The penalty awarded to QPR in the 10th minute may or may not have been legitimate, but if that was considered a penalty by Foy, why weren't the several questionable offenses committed on us in the second half classified as the same by Foy?
Drogba's red card was sadly deserved, but Bosingwa's red card was completely unwarranted.
After that, Foy effortlessly dished out seven more yellow cards to Chelsea players. It got so exorbitant that every time a QPR player went down, I was just waiting for Foy to blow his little whistle, pull out his book, and hold up a card.
Now, I'm of course not alleging any FA conspiracies or anything like that, but Foy certainly did well to show himself as an Ovrebo Jr. of sorts.
And it's also worth noting that Foy was also the ref in charge of Chelsea's Carling Cup game last month against Fulham, where there was another questionable red card given to a Chelsea player and a penalty kick given to the opposition. Just something to think about...
