    Having officals on line

    Hi all, As a L7 ref, it's rare that I get officials on my line. This morning I did have one. Clearly experienced one and a youngster. The experienced one went bench side. I booked a player in the 1st half for a double footed tackle, could have argued a RC, but I decided a YC, no one moaned...

    Minute silence

    Thankfully, never happened to me, but just food for thought. A player for whatever reason refuses to do a minute silence and is shouting and trying to talk to other players. What action, if any would you take. YC for USB, RC for using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or...

    Southampton v newcastle

    As a saints fan I have been been known to be a trade unfair on watching MoTD! But this I think the officials got it wrong. The ball is played forward to lambert. This angle is not great but MoTD showed both lambert and Rodriguez were ONSIDE. Lambert runs AHEAD and both players now in the box...

I heard the manger say "how long we playing ref" I look at my watch and we had about a min to go till 40min in 1st half. They approach me at half time - we have a joke about it and agree I messed...

    Newcastle disalowed goal

    I initially thought - WOW what a goal. Then he disallowed the goal for off side I was like WHAT! Then saw the reply - totally agree. The NUFC player was clearly in the way on the ball and was offside. If he had not moved out the way, it was DEF hitting him stopping it going in. Def...
