TBF there's a big possibility (probably fucking massive)that Oliver is just wank.
Agree. There's a big possibility that most of them are wank, but some much less wank than others and the odd v good one.

It's a tough gig. Try standing in the middle of a massive great field being scrutinised by 50,000 emotional people and umpteen cameras, trying to keep tabs on a ball and 20 people running at the speed of light in different parts of the pitch. Not trying to defend referees and lino's as they tarnish and affect many many matches for all teams with their poor decisions, but I reckon it's harder than most think.

It’s not just harder than we think - a lot of elements of it are just physically impossible. Take the offside rule. A linesman has to be looking to two different directions at the same time.

How many times have we watched and rewatched the same clip from multiple angles, squinting and straining at the screen, until...yes....slowed down and zoomed in...yes...he was clipped there....AND THE BIASED CUNT REFEREE DIDN’T GIVE IT!!!!

Having said all that, the feller on Wednesday night was the first time I’ve ever wondered where a ref was holidaying in the summer. Wouldn’t be surprised if it was in the Gulf.

On the other hand ref's have got a lot of power. I believe they meet both team's managers and captains in their changing room before the game. If I was a referee I would take the opportunity to tell them all that I and only I am in charge of decisions during the game. Anybody questioning me will be yellow carded. Don't be trying to influence me and putting doubts in my mind about my decisions. You question me and I'll book you. The same for my assistants. Also, no manhandling in the box prior to set pieces. If there's grappling in the box, I won't stop the free kick from being taken to have a word with the culprits. I'll be stopping it to yellow card them. If it's six of one and half a dozen of the other, simple, yellow card for each of them. Pulling shirts is a straight yellow. You may mistime a tackle by accident but you don't accidentally grab a handful of somebody's shirt.

Here endeth the rant.
