    Portugal v Switzerland (Not the VAR)

    Watched the highlights this morning and noticed this straight away. On Portugals first goal (Ronaldos free kick), there are two red shirts stood in the wall. Under the LOTG change as of 1st June, they shouldn't have been there. It clearly states that with a wall of 3 or more players defenders...

    What would you do?

    Hypothetical situation, what would you do?? For one reason or another both teams have decided a pre-arranged protest. The game kicks of, the ball moves 5 yards and all 22 players sit down and do nothing for 20 minutes. Just to be clear the ball is in play. What do you do?

    Persistent Infringement

    Was chatting with a colleague on Sunday and he made a good point all be it a little tongue in cheek. If a player is constantly offside then what would stop you from cautioning him for persistent infringement? According to Law 12, under cautionable offences: A player is cautioned if guilty of...

    England v Spain - Womens Euros

    Decided to sit and watch this last night and their were a few strange decisions to say the least. England scored a second goal after 5/6 minutes that was deemed offside, it was one of those where you saw it real time and thought it was wrong. An then there was this, the penalty that was the...

    Who was playing him on then ref?

    One of my biggest pet hates as a referee is being asked the question, "Who was playing him on then ref?" when calling a player on side. More often than not i get this on the line and more often than not i can answer the question. I was after a bit of advice as to what the answer is if you don't...

    I have come across a site that has basically cloned the pro direct website and are selling boots from China. I have spoken with Pro Direct and they are trying to have it taken down. I purchased a pair of Copa Mundial from them and they are clearly fake and have been shipped from China and not UK...
