This review is from: Bastard in Black!: A local parks referee's tales of life on the edge (Kindle Edition)
Well written and in the best tradition of fanzines. The author clearly writes from bitter and/or positive experience. You can almost smell the mud!

5.0 out of 5 stars Trials and tribulations of a football referee, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bastard in Black!: A local parks referee's tales of life on the edge (Kindle Edition)
A hilarious insight into the trials and tribulations of a football referee. Those of you who vamp their frustrations on the man in black every weekend will surely, in future, have some sympathy towards his decisions (rightly or wrongly) after reading Bastard in Black. Some of the antics in the book make you realise that there is a fun side to the game (albeit sometimes at the referee's expense!). A well written and informative book - a must for all footie fans!!
