    Netherlands vs France

    And that's your opinion 👍

    Netherlands vs France

    it’s the problem with subjective decisions I would argue that the keeper isn’t even ready for the follow up shot, the ball is past him before he’s even had time to make a conscious decision to make a save, he does that weird action of dropping to his knee when keepers know they have been...

    Netherlands vs France

    Isn’t obstructing the line of the vision of the goalkeeper, applying the laws of the game, this shouldn’t be offside The attacker doesn't make any action The keeper is never in a position to make the save regardless of the Dutch attacker’s position, it’s past him before he sees it (the Dutch...

    Terrible decision, the keeper has no chance of making the save

    Hopefully none of our members got involved in this... horrible scenes all round and just reinforcing that tournaments should be given a wide berth https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c1ee0700j4go

    GER v SCO - Euro 24

    At least a caution? 😲 What would be your criteria to upgrade that to a red? A chainsaw to the leg? 🤣

    GER v SCO - Euro 24

    FOOTBALL IS BACK!!! 🎉 I actually thought the first VAR review was a penalty, there was a second contact in the box by Tierney, that was enough to give a penalty for me! Absolutely disgraceful challenge by Porteous there!

    Ref's World

    If you hadn't guessed, I spend a lot of time on YouTube 🤣 There was an account shared last week of a ref who was wearing a body cam for games, which was a really good insight to refereeing at grassroots. (Until the CFA asked him to stop recording). This account takes it a step further, leaning...

    "Undermined his authority"

    Here's one to split the forum... are you Team Ref or Team Coach in this video? I must admit, I winced while watching the referee, one possible explanation for his behavior is that he not English (assumed), and this style of refereeing is more effective or respected on the continent. I do...

    First Caution

    Going to play a bit of devils advocate here; I can't say I spend much time or attention looking at where the keeper is kicking from, especially at under 12s. To be honest, I would only pick up on it if a coach or CAR brought it to my attention (or players were consistently screaming about it)...

    Real Grassroot Footage

    Asking the experienced heads (not excluding inexperienced heads), in another one of his videos a player is adamant that there is a foul throw because the ball is spinning upon release, so adamant that he argues himself into a position where I would be booking for dissent. I can't find anything...

    Glad you picked up on the whistle as well. He must moonlight as a train dispatcher

    Real Grassroot Footage

    It is a really good insight into the experience of grassroots refereeing Some might disagree with me here, not sure on the level of the referee, but this would be a good video of "how not to referee" for the refereeing course (not saying I am any better and I still have a lot to learn, but at...

    Recommended Smart Watches

    Had similar with Ref Six, the app closes it self far too regularly for my liking leading to having to select the app from the list to reopen it. Also find it overly sensitive on occasions, like when recording a goal and it thinks you want to stop the time.

    Remuneration

    Agreed! It is indeed a bonkers situation, but it reflects the reality of many aspects of life. I used to commute to London for work because it offered the best opportunities for career advancement. My daily commute was two hours each way, and the high travel costs left me struggling financially...

    Friendlies

    I've seen a lot of tournaments asking for referees on Facebook ref groups, based on what I have seen, I would imagine if you offered your services to a club running a tournament they'd snap your hand off. I recall posts on here and also on Facebook about exercising caution around summer...

    Remuneration

    This discussion feels like a rollercoaster! 🎢 I completely agree that referees can't be considered volunteers. There's a valid argument to be made that they deserve higher pay. We all wish we were paid more for our work, but we live in a capitalist society where profit reigns supreme. Debating...

    Which side do you make CARs stand on?

    With the refereeing course fresh in my mind, we were told it's always left backs. Reason being, over time, you get used to the position of your AR and keeping them in your eyeline and where to look for offside calls. If your question is more related to whether CARs should be with their own...

    Junior/Youth It's a friendly ref!

    Probably one of the most infruriating lines heard across the amateur game. I think the best advice I have read on here has always been; they have asked for a proper referee, don't be angry when the game is refereed properly. Despite the opinion of many clubs, a friendly does not give carte...

    My 5 qualifying games

    Thank you for your really kind post James 🤜 I will go a step further than this, I was basically told on the course that because of my age and because I wasn't associated with a club, I was on my own with finding qualifying games because the teenagers on my course (90% of participants) will be...
