We have Select Group 2 Officials for our next games which is nice to see,
Stephen Martin at Exeter and Andrew Madley against Swindon.
Why the hyphen?
All referees are awful. Doesn't seem to matter how rated they are.
I can tell u now, neither are as bad as that arsehole we had on saturday.
Just out of curiosity - I am wondering how many of the posters on here have actually refereed a football match ?
I did it for a number of years starting at U9's (boys and girls) and up to my final match being at Youth level, I purely did this as a volunteer due to the lack of available Referees and completely free of charge (and I can tell you some horrific stories).
Anyone who has refereed a football match, at whatever level, will appreciate that it is extremely difficult to get every decision absolutely right.
I am extremely offended by the comments that all referees are "Awful" or "Arseholes", we are just like all other human beings - we will make the odd mistake now and then, and I have admitted to a few !!
Of course the alternative is a game ruled by VAR !! Cue Mr Plant !!
Come on Richie utilise your ref knowledge and advise us on how gaz should go about winning the next two games and perhaps predict scores.
Well said @Ceefax_Striker, comments and opinions are one thing and indeed almost the entire point of spectating at all but insults can never be condoned. In fact I would say that it merely underlines the lack of intelligence, understanding and humility of the one passing the insult. I have only run the line a few times for the kids and that was hard enough.
Interestingly, Stephen Martin refereed our trip to Exeter in 2015/16. When he somehow failed to show Marcus Bean a straight red card.
Stephen Martin had a stinker on Saturday and gave Preston a penalty that never was in a million years, might be a punishment he is being sent to ref us, on the other hand Madley has a Yorkshire derby on Saturday so don't think he is being punished.
