Having been involved in grassroots football as player, manager, and now referee I can certainly agree with some of the stories.
Thought the book was a bit short for the money, and didn't like the lists that were included along the way.
Worth a read though.
The author has I believe done a great service to those unsung heroes (and not only referees) who turn out every week for little or no reward, although he has probably not done anything to heal the North South divide. By accident of birth I am one of those Southern Softies.
I understand the author is currently working on his next book, whilst it is on a different topic perhaps he might find space to explain the offside rule in it – I still have no idea what he is on about.
Anyone who as ever kicked a ball in anger or just for fun will be able to relate to the writers well documented accounts.

Not too bad a read but heard and read many stories like this.Published on 9 Feb. 2015 by Griffin Collycroft
Enjoyable insight into the problems facing referees. More humorous than serious and shows referrers in a new light. Good read.Published on 25 Jan. 2015 by N.PICKERSGILL
Must have been written by a stereotypical referee trying to be humorous but failed miserably. Maybe you have to have a referees sense of humour to enjoy this book.Published on 24 Jan. 2015 by Steven Harris
A humorous read and a couple of laugh out loud moments but tailed off towards the end. Would have liked it to have been more chronological in the writers career but seemed to dip... Read morePublished on 16 Jan. 2015 by R. Burridge
