The referee can make mistakes....a good read.
on 23 June 2012
Wan't sure I would read enjoy this but I did. It provides real insight into the work of a referee. I like most football fans probably blame the referee when decisions go against my team. Maybe not so much again. The discussion on some of the most contraversial decisions in recent times are discussed and reasons put forward why they might have been wrong ....or right......! Maradona's hand of God....was the referee the only one in the World who did not see it? Was the Goal over the line in the 1966 Wolrd Cup Final? I will not give anyhting away but the disussion on it makes for interesting reading. His comments on the bahvaiour of the press makes for interesting reading and I am sure most decent minded readers will agree with him. I suppose the real message of this book is that referees are human and do make mistakes.....The book is intelligent, interesting, well written and an ejoyable read. Highly recommended to all football fans and the football media experts......who clearly do not know what they are talking about!
