If that was a penalty no way can it be a red. Irrelevant of what you think he knows he is doing hes mighty close to the ball here so can't see anything other than yellow as an attempt/challenge for the ball.
Firstly the laws cannot cover every scenario, so we revert to spirit of game and what football expects.
Pick one. Probably best to pick one not already on a caution
Eventually some has to give themselves up to take the restart. Easy pickings. I'd be very very clear with skipper what the...
Also agree. But feel necessitated to remind of safeguarding best practise.
Away and home manager/coach should be involved. Basically, don't take the children to the changing room/place of safety alone.
Finally, it might be an idea to have a plan for such an eventuality. This may...
Depends on the level.
At step 2 I've ranged from 70.5 (deserved) and a 73.5. average is around 72.4.
Step 6 I got a 74.5 on a game I did. All luck of the draw and what opportunities you get and also knowing when not to get involved too.
Ah! Well as a level 4 Referee, an hour is probably sufficient, I tended to go for 1hr 15.
But the commitment and time elements are more around level 4 assistant refereeing. Clubs are generally more engaging and hospitable.
There is probably a bit of hanging around, chatting and what have you...

14.4 Match Officials should be present at the appointment at least 90 minutes prior to the scheduled time of kick-off.
The appointed Referee may be required to visit the ground earlier if requested to do so by...
The league might have a policy but no way is that in the SCOR and getting signed off.
I just don't see a world where this would be healthy for the game.
And to be honest, I just wouldnt go anywhere near a league that allowed this. I'm not keeping my phone open for someone to ring and question...
I'm in agreement to a point..I think for us within this forum and the levels we operate at, you are bang on the money.
I think at this level, especially around Haaland not looking etc I think there is less consideration needed. Haaland doesn't need to look. He just plays that's ball because he...
Ok well you are quoting me out of context then...read the post I was responding to who said it was a missed advantage and so a caution for SPA. The promising attack at that point had not started so it couldn't be an SPA offence.
I agree the ref should wait, but that's adding a new context to...
