  1. Unfortunately the FA have learned If you try to put referees into any sort of regime of punishment for poor or bad refereeing then no one will become a ref, therefore they will get away with murder. It is about tine the FA had a school for refs with a very strict regime coupled with video replays like in cricket where the captain can ask for a replay if there is any doubt on his decision however I doubt the old farts in the FA will go for that their attitude is that they want to control everything & this will take that control away from them, it is up to the managers to put pressure on the FA to change the system

  2. The FA will do just that… sweet FA when it comes to referees.

  3. With var refs wouldn’t need to be asked to appear for poor decision making ! Therefore have nothing to fear , it would stop the cheating and level the playing field !
    Every club in the football league need to tell the FA they will no longer put up with the bias in the game , refuse to pay fines or anything else related to bias and punishment for speaking their mind. What they gonna do ban everyone in the game , maybe vote in and join a different regime and out the FA , after all they’re just a PLC at the end of the day. There’s no law stating
    That cannot happen ! Something needs to change and quickly as its getting out of control !

  4. As any body also brought into discussion that somebody might have had a bet on west ham winning Taken away ???? Or did he (the ref or one of his associates have it down for a draw on a bet) just throwing a curve ball into what was a obvious decision NOT taken!!!

  5. …and now Polł, Hackett and Gallagher have all said:

    A. Boot to face = red card

    B. The linesman got it right

    How many years of top class refereeing is that Bobby, while you’re doing the centre stage thing?
