    VAR and Full time referees in Scotland

    Interest article about whether VAR or full time referees would benefit Scottish football more. But I think the best comment is Foreign Refs in Scotland? So, they are recommending no point in developing Scottish referees as we will simply import...

    Sin Bins - Dissent v delay of game

    With the introduction of sin bins at Step 7 and below for dissent next season, an interesting thought has crossed my mind. Currently, it is the same sanction for dissent as delaying the game = caution. Under the rules changes, dissent = sin bin; delaying the game = caution. Situation 1 - first...

    Injuries and Penalty Kicks

    Just a thought from the WC. If a player has left the FOP though injury and it not replaced, where does he stand for taking a penalty kick? Tripper went off for England and the end of the WCSF, and got me thinking would he have to take a kick as one of the 11. We know a dismissed player reduces...

    Simulation - WBA defender

    In the WBA v Spurs match, Rose was cautioned for an AA but the WBA player (Nyom) went down like he was punched by David Haye. Anybody think he should have be punished for simulation? Almost as good as Rivaldo and Turkey in the WC.....

    Professional Referees in Scotland?

    On the BBC article, they are calling for full-time referees in Scotland. Given they can't afford Goal line technology, can they afford this? While the clubs will compare their Premiership to the EPL (which they are no where near that standard), should they expect their referees to be of EPL...
