    World Cup Japan v Colombia

    Watching this game on BBC3, and it's nice to hear the commentators frequently praise the referee. They have passed many compliments on his performance and what he is doing, and it's a nice surprise. They even said he will be hoping for Portugal to go out so he can get the final! A bit early for...

    Sold Nike Training Top

    Hi everyone. I've got a brand new Nike Training top, this seasons. The only reason I am selling it is because it's a size large and it's too big for me! It has never been worn, but it's tags have been taken off. It has no badge on it - it is the training top only. Yours for £10 incl. P&P, which...

    Well, what a story to tell! Went to watch Altrincham FC v North Ferriby today - Conference North, 1st v 3rd. I saw Anthony Taylor before the game (he supports Althrincham), and I've met and spoke to him before at a talk he did a few weeks back so I went and sat next to him. We were chatting...

    Throw in

    Today I had a very good appointment - City v Birmingham ladies, for which I was on the line. First half I was involved a lot, all in my half, and I did really really well, all my flags were correct, and there were no complaints whatsoever. Then, in the second half, my head was still in the...

    Hi guys Just wondering, how do you caution? I can't make a decision on how to do it! Do you write on the card, write in the notebook, write in the notebook, put it away and then pull out a yellow from your pocket? Thanks

    Refsworld released their new product today; card skins. They stick onto your cards, and have spaces for you to write players numbers, caution codes, time etc. They are re-useable, and actually look quite good. What are your first impressions? Obviously no one has them yet, but will anyone be...

    Is there any way that Refsworld banner can be moved Ross? It blocks anything else in its place! EDIT: this doesn't apply anymore, I don't know why it was there but it's gone now!! EDIT2: it's back now, but it doesn't block anything now. Is it just me or do I feel like I'm doing a running...

    Vidic red card

    Your thoughts on the vidic red card? I personally felt that it was harsh, and a yellow would have been sufficient for the tackle.

    2 incidents on the front page of 2 papers yesterday - one town paper one regional, both different stories regarding referees being abused. 1- regional paper. A 16 year old ref was grabbed by the throat and spat at twice as he went back to changing rooms. This was because he did not give a free...

    Villa v Tottenham

    Anyone see the linesman get hit after Spurs' first goal? Somebody through a flare onto the pitch and hit the linesman on the back/neck. Truly horrific and disgusting how a football fan can attack an official in that way. I hope the person who threw it faces consequences for it.

    Chelsea v Cardiff

    Anyone see Chelsea's first goal? Goalkeepers bounces ball on ground after collecting it, Eto sticks leg out, takes it off him, passes back to Hazard who eventually passes back to Eto, then back to Hazard who scores. Should've been an IDFK, bit of a howler? He did turn his back though, and...

    If your face fits

    I was refereeing a match a few weeks ago, and one of the CARs was speaking to me. He used to be a conference level referee, and was talking to me about that. During the match, he was talking to my dad who was with me. Later on, my dad was telling me what the CAR was saying to him. The ref said...
