    First Assessment of new marking season

    I try to look at things objectively, and ultimately, he's right whether it's in the LOTG or not. If assessments were all about law and law only not only would it be very dull and contain little or no development, but we would also be expect to score 100% as a minimum every time. I'm grateful...

    First Assessment of new marking season

    Tidy up throw in signal, player receiving treatment turn to face the remainder of the field quicker (I did do that, but not immediately), during first caution although I told player to stand up twice he did bend over a third time while I was writing and talking, which I must've missed.

    First Assessment of new marking season

    Had my first 6-5 assessment (sorry, observation) today. Saturday cup semi, NAR's, went to extra time and pens :cry: Observer picked out some useful minor development points, although only minor. All seemed to go very well from my point of view, he seemed happy, just waiting the report now...

    Blank Card Skins

    Sorry to resurrect a thread from the dead, but I had a massive brainwave with these. Bought some of that clear sticky back plastic film used to cover books and things, £1 a roll from Tesco. Cut it into squares the right size for my plastic red and yellow cards and hey presto - works a treat...

    Man Utd vs Bournemouth

    He's had a tough one there for sure. Didn't help himself, but we've all been there.

    Wegner - Arsenal V Burnley

    They need to set an example with him. His behaviour before the physicality and refusal alone were bad enough.

    Break the game into 6 15 minute sections. If you make a mistake that's bothering you, mentally bury it at the end of that 15 minute period and move on. Think about how you want to control the next 15 minute period when it starts. Other than that smile, enjoy it and attempt to exude confidence.

    Where's my FIFA badge?

    So today I broke new ground, took a step up in the world and refereed a game over the boarder in Wales. Wrexham U19 v Morecambe U19. So I guess now I'm an international ref with my name on the FIFA list and waiting my invite to the 2018 World Cup? :D:D:D

    Is this off limits?

    I'm based in the North West and only ever heard that word on the pitch once, resulting in a red card, so I'd hardly say it is based in the North West. There is no place for it in life, never mind on the pitch.

    Is this off limits?

    I received this email earlier (which prompted my visit here to see the full story after a period of inactivity), and your quote is 100% correct. I have to say I didn't receive the whole tone particularly well at all, and half though about a reply before the red mist lifted and logic took over...

    Arab Oil v Russian Gas

    I got that, and have to say I thought it quite clever. I am puzzled why somebody would want to change it though...?

    Why do you want to change the thread title?

    Junior/Youth Two very different halves

    If I genuinely think I've got something wrong that has potentially influenced the outcome of the game, I try to use it as motivation to work harder, for the next 20 minutes at least. An extra yard in the sprint, covering more ground, generally sharpen up. Helps in a number of ways - you...
