    Encroachment. Mandatory caution?

    Yeah, If he gives you a Standard Expected or above I'd leave it, otherwise I'd first point it out to the RDO. I had an observer write in his report that I had allowed a substitution to take place while the ball was live, and incorrectly restarted play by throwing the ball to the GK. What...

    Encroachment. Mandatory caution?

    It definitely doesn't cover encroachment on a penalty.

    I got mine this morning. Am now a level 5 and that's it for me.

    Ref Six - Watch

    I do get teamsheets, yes. I don't need to use the watch for this, I've just into the habit. I only note the number at the time but I always check the names are correct after the match (they are frequently not correct). The reason I don't take the name is that it's very multicultural here...

    Ref Six - Watch

    I've been using refsix for over a year and love it, but for the first time I lost my match log this weekend. There's a new version (5.0) and instead of transferring at the end of the match it 'syncs' and can do several matches at once. You can't sync without exiting the match. I exited the...

    Chelsea v Arsenal

    I've always assumed you shouldn't tell the keeper anything because it sounds like you're coaching him. It looks like I'm in the minority. Is it ok to tell the keeper in advance what your decision would be?

    Goalkeeper handball DOGSO (inside penalty area)?

    I do that if there was a massive call for the free kick / pen which I didn't give because I was waiting to see if they scored. Then I claim the assist.

    Yeah that thread has aged me about 10 years.

    Open Age First Adult Game as AR and boot Issues

    I don't think it's 'very common'. It's never happened to me. I referee on 3/4G at least once a month. My son plays on 3/4G in astros at least twice a month. I've never seen a boot check take place even at academies.

    Open Age First Adult Game as AR and boot Issues

    Well I have never been asked to change my boots and I've been wearing them on 3/4G surfaces since they arrived 10-15 years ago.

    Open Age First Adult Game as AR and boot Issues

    Something must have got lost in translation. By 'astros' I mean football boots which are specifically designed to be used on artificial surfaces. I'm reasonably confident they can be worn on artificial surfaces, firstly because that's what they are designed for and secondly because I have been...

    Checking if there's jewellery under tape?

    That sort of error by officials at the highest level really irks me.

    what your decision on this?

    In real time I would say no foul, play on. On watching the slow mo it's a defensive free kick.

    Club Marks: How do I compare?

    This is probably quite good advice for an individual referee. But for a referee secretary it does provide a useful picture over the course of a season. Other than the referee's level, all they've got to go on is club marks and exception reports from clubs.

    Open Age First Adult Game as AR and boot Issues

    They are for artificial ground but I wear astros all the time at the moment, the pitches are so hard.
