Book Description

6 Nov 2012
From child abuse to foul and offensive language, the referee is expected to deal with it all. Standing in the middle of the park on your first game is daunting, especially when all eyes are looking at you, just waiting for you to make your first mistake. Inspired by Graham Poll, this diary provides an insight to problems and issues I had on the field of play and where I turned to enhance my knowledge. Hearing how others dealt with certain situations helped me enormously. I just hope my experiences can help you with your tricky situations. It is aimed at the younger and newer referees who do not have the experience to handle those tricky situations.

1.0 out of 5 stars Grrrrrr 26 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I asked my son to get this book for me as a Christmas present. As somebody who has refereed for 5 years myself I felt this book could only be a useful tool. However what should have been a guide for me and for others turned into a nightmare almost from the off. At first I found the many errors amusing but shortly afterwards they became downright annoying. I appear to have the 3rd edition of this book and really must wonder did anybody, from author to publisher, actually ever read it before publication. It is littered with spelling mistakes, grammatical errors and incorrect punctuation. There are capital letters and full stops in the middle of sentences all the way through.

In conclusion I bought this book hoping to gain a little knowledge and perhaps support the author into the bargain. All I got in exchange was a lazily written book that only serves to irritate the reader. Avoid.
