loss of concentration, awareness and not willing to take controlI think key here is why didnt the referee just wait a second later before he blew the whistle, then he can actually give the goal after a chat.
I'd love to be the fly on the wall in the referees change room at full time.Referee error for me also
The flag being raised is a signal from AR to referee that someone is in an offside position and should be penalised
Nine times out of ten, you take the flag
This was number ten
Referee simply needs to be aware of who played it, and be strong enough to allow play to continue
ar error, yes, but, the AR is not forcing the referee to stop the game
i would have restarted with a drop ball, to restart with the clearly incorrect offside just makes it worse. Could have held hands up, went, sorry guys, instead of sticking to the incorrect call.
Unusual betting patterns are not 'unusual'... but very rare in national top-flight leaguesMaybe he’d messed up his accca, you never know abroad??
