    France v West Germany 1982

    Watched this yesterday and I noticed that on the penalty kick during the game there was no encroachment from any one. It looked weird, and when did it become illegal to stcop wearing jewelry?Watching old football there are lots of chains being worn in the 80s

    Are you putting that through ref?

    Been reffing for 4 seasons and have been asked about this on several occasions always on youth games never at OA. I have always thought it is just teams trying to pull a fast one. I have now changed my mind. Last week blues v reds U18s 3 cautions 1 C2 sin bin and 2 c1 aa to 2 players who squared...

    uncontested drop ball

    Is it me or a players having more issues with this than any other law change. I had to stop for pink player due to a head injury, and pinks had possesion. Re-start with an uncontested drop ball. Tell the nearest red players it is uncontested and they start to retreat. Pinks attack the goal while...

    Is the yellow rescinded?

    Found this on the Guardian it is a paragraph from the roma atalanta match report. Well, actually what happened first is that the Slovenian got booked for diving: the referee Gianpaolo Calvarese believing that he had taken a dive on his way into the area. That decision was corrected after a VAR...

    Look the part

    I did an under 9 game today as a favour and I made sure I was properly kitted out but at the same time there was an under 13s game going on and the FA appointed ref was in a track suit. He also allowed players to wear hoodies as well which is exceptionally bad. Whether I am doing OA football or...

    No bottle from the FA

    Just heard on the radio that the game where the ref was chased and kicked in the Turkish league in London none of the players are getting punished. Boo to that local FA only banning the chairman and no players is letting us all down. Poor decision

    Stupid Things Players Say

    yellow pulls pinks shirt. I whistle. I didn't foul him ref. Yes you did you pulled his shirt foul all day long. Pulling a shirt isn't a foul ref. Large sigh from me.

    ref vs CAR

    On Saturday I bumped into a coach who my son used to playfor I have known him years and reffed his team on numerous occasions. I was just about to go off to my game and him the same. He told me a story which left my chin on the floor. My friend coaches U15s so never has any parents to run the...

    Junior/Youth Things you don't expect to hear

    I reffed 2 U18s teams on Sunday, one of them I had been on the line for in the summer and the other team I had reffed a few times when they were U16s last year. An exciting game spoilt a bit by the wind. Before the game I was speaking to a club official who remembered I had been on the line...
