    Breakaway European League.

    That's exactly it though. The model Florentino wanted was the NBA where participation and income is guaranteed so even if you have a bad year on the pitch the entity survives as one of the big boys and you automatically play the big names all the time. Add in all the commercials and razzmatazz...

    April 23rd.

    Happy St George's Day everyone. 🙂 Bring me my bow of burning gold: Bring me my arrows of desire: Bring me my spear: O clouds unfold! Bring me my chariot of fire. I will not cease from mental fight, Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand Till we have built Jerusalem In England's green and pleasant...

    for the love or money

    Before I embarked on my football refereeing journey I actually believed that referees at grass roots level were only paid travel expenses - just like rugby referees still are so I can certainly say with total honesty that I didn't enter into it for the meagre match fees that I'm paid. I...

    Breakaway European League.

    Yes it's a good watch. Watching it served as a reminder for me of the impact on non top-flight organisations that this proposed ESL would have had.

    Assessing the assessors

    Start by referring to it as "observing" rather than assessing. 😉 Can't really give any useful tips at this time since your training course will provide all the basics anyway but one thing I will say (to be read in conjunction with my first paragraph) is to always remember that you're there to...

    You are the ref!

    Not sure about that. The OP didn't say the guy did it deliberately did he? He could have been throwing it to a team-mate or coach and just done it "carelessly" so as for it to end up hitting the ball. Nothing reckless about that ...

    Breakaway European League.

    On the upside @Big Cat if the Premier League do boot the shameless 6 out, at least Toon might have a fair-to-middling chance of finishing in the top half of the table one day. 😄🤪

    Best performance yet!

    Getting too far down into the weeds of it there. The above is no different to saying every time a player shouts "our ball Ref!" when appealing for a throw-in, corner, FK, GK etc is distracting the referee. You can only realistically distract someone on the field by sight or sound - not...

    Good luck with calling it though ... :D :confused:

    Breakaway European League.

    I'd like to think the players in the Premier League might have something (negative) to say about it all, but as mentioned earlier, most of them don't hail from here and frankly why should they give a monkey's about the future of English football? They're only here for the money ...

    U14s swearing

    USB for sure, but not dissent ... ;)

    Breakaway European League.

    Agreed. The whole thing over the next few weeks will show us exactly where football has arrived at - as if we didn't already know to be fair. I don't like the idea of this European Superstars League any more than anyone else, but, as I read on a different forum last night .. More food for...

    Breakaway European League.

    I think that it'll ultimately come down to whether or not there is the will (within the global fan base) to effectively veto it by boycott. Like you say, it's all about the greed. Once the money dries up or there is a fear of it drying up, clubs will have to start reacting to it. I certainly...

    It's one of those "YHTBT" instances mate. If the handball incident is just careless yet avoidable on the part of the player, then it's just the DFK. If in your view it's cynical, whether or not it stops a PA, then you could argue for a caution as well. :)

    Breakaway European League.

    Yep. All about money and television. To be honest, the "game" has been heading into a tunnel like this for a while. The modern game bears no resemblance to how it was when I was a youngster. Most kids would go to watch their local or chosen team with a family member, the team being nearly all...

    Mandatory caution for spelling there @one. ;) Shocking ... :p

    I'm up for that. 👍

    U14s swearing

    As alluded to in another thread, "swearing" as and of itself cannot be sanctioned. It's the manner and context in which the language is delivered that is key. If it's not (in your opinion) Offensive, Insulting or Abusive then let it go. ;)

    Breakaway European League.

    Word on the street is that Man Utd, Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City, Arsenal and Tottenham have all signed up to it. Real controversy. What are the members thoughts?

    Referee levels

    Remember also Liam that even with you going straight to Level 7, it'll still be up to you what age group you want to start off at. Everybody is different, and at 16 years old, you've time on your side. Maybe start off with a few U14/15 games to get yourself really going. You'll be operating...
