    well, I get told by players 'whats the point in being here lino?!' ... so might as well put my feet up!

    ahhh @JamesL - do that, for sure ... I mean, I wouldn't sit there and say 'oh yes, that definitely was a penalty' if im not sure ... I'd lend a phrase alike the ones you've mentioned

    Ahhh no ... I said if I am in 100% agreement with the ref, that he is correct ... basically do I agree with the ref's decision 100%, then i'll verbally back him ... anything else then hmm I'm cautious - a lot of ref's agree, remember they can always run away from the benches to the other side of...

    doh! that's why you say 'if you need anything' i.e. if they want a sub, or think a player needs attention - or clarification etc ... could be how long left? or checking a booking? lol

    only correction to @PinnerPaul there ... some ref's will tell you 'do not defend the indefensible' ... i.e. never publicly agree with the referee if he may be wrong, or deffo was wrong ...I only ever verbally stand up for the ref if I am in 100% agreement that he was correct

    Do nothing differently ... just do your job. The only 'other' expectations to do, is a. the substitute procedure - make sure it is always from half way line and clearly one off and one on, don't let a player on before one has come off - ask the ref if he wants time, or just what number off and...

    Standing water - abandonment

    same as a normal pitch for me but just extreme - if too much water then it CAN sit on top and be like a mini swimming pool ... but I haven't ever actually seen it, heard of it etc.

    Getting reported

    As @SurreySuperRef said ... the FA won't just throw you under the bus, CFA's (and especially Essex) do everything that they can to stand with the ref, in 99.9% of cases that are ruled against the ref, it is because they have given wrong information, or have been wrong in law e.g. heard a story...

    So tit for tat email James - where abouts in Essex are you based? do you belong to a society?

    Everybodys favourite martyr..

    It worries me that someone as young as he is, and with a potential great career ahead of him, that he is so happy to damage his prospects. Ryan is looking at a lengthy ban away from the game, and I'd pretty much guarantee his career as a referee is finished - as far as I see, the FA didn't want...

    Getting reported

    Hi Jack ... Essex FA? Very supportive ... email Mr Lisher and explain exactly what has happened. He will have to provide a report of why he has marked below 60 - how do you know this is the mark? the foul language and attitude he has mentioned would be a misconduct report and not included in...

    looks like my pitch from yesterday! lol seems fine to me, but obviously, as others have said, still 80 yards of pitch to see

    I appreciate that ... but those lions must be under sedation in order for you to be in there standing so close to them - and that is what I have an issue with, humanities reluctance to admire anything from afar in its natural habitat ... I also have massive issues with Sea World etc. Safari...
