    It's easier to say this in the cold light of day than in the heat of the moment, but officials do their best in what is fast becoming an almost impossible task. The pace of the game, the speed of movement, the long range passes, players diving and trying to con the referee, etc. all make it so so difficult to get every decision right.
    Anyone who has refereed - even at schoolboy level - knows how tough it is.
    Nowadays we have cameras everywhere, slow motion replays and now VAR, plus a panel of know alls in a studio, but the poor ref has only one split second chance to get it right.

    I reckon refs make far fewer errors than any player does in 90 minutes yet they get slammed for a single mistake when players can get away with 5-6 bad passes, missed shots or whatever.
    You just have to bite you lip, except they are human and make mistakes but that it's done to the best of their ability.

    Who really would want to be an official in this day and age with so many 'experts' judging you after viewing a slow motion action replay ten times?!

    Jimmy Armfield only got booked once in about 600 games. He played the game as a gentleman. We need to follow his example.

    As VFIA says we lost the game because we collapsed like a pack of cards in the second half. It's no use blaming the officials.

    I was behind the goal right at at the front, their keeper turned round and said to us “that was your ball the liner got that one wrong.

    I just hope Gunning stays fit for the World Cup because the way some speak about him on here he could be the difference between winning it and going home in the group stage.

    You certainly did, which is why I wanted MON to go to Sjoke. Erikkson ripped us to shreds that night, and we deserved with those tactics. Anyway , off topic.
