I think it’s good and nice for us to be the first game, with Carol as owner as well.

Will judge the referee of performance not gender, let’s be honest there’s been some terrible ones the past year or two!

Absolutely spot-on. It will be very interesting to see how she does handle the game and equally interesting to note the players' (of both sides') response!  If she knows the laws (and spirit) of the game as surely she must to be appointed in the first place, the only judgment necessary is about her competence not gender!  It will no doubt generate much media coverage of theis game/

Really great. We need to widen the talent pool of referees and accessing 50% of the population does that. Positive target - Vale awarded first penalty given by a woman referee. To avoid - X of Port Vale first player sent off by a female referee.

I hope she has a terrible game in that i hope she gives us 3 dodgy penalties that we don't deserve!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Seriously though, all the best to her.  Got to be better than some of the <ovf censored> we see down at this level.

Hopefully there will be nothing to report which means she has had a steady, anonymous game .

If there is anything to report no need for hysteria as many have rightly pointed out we have had some atrocious male refs. 

Sian Massey has done well with barely any hype, if they do their job whether male female or whatever then fine decision.

There’s going to be a lot of attention on the game so I hope she’s anonymous, which at the end of the game is sometimes key to a good ref when you realise you haven’t really noticed them. I hope she lets the game flow if possible and isn’t too hasty to stop the game and make it a whistle-fest or is too eager with the cards. Basically just don’t do all the things that make Kettle a shocking referee.

Not sure why there’s any question of her competency.
She’s reffed at the women’s World Cup and the FA Cup Final. She’ll be miles better than the usual tripe.
Correct. Most the blokes we have are fat and old. Cant keep up with play, haven't a clue and want to make it all about them.

A recent ref looked like he was expecting twins, might of been the Bolton game.

Great stuff, didn't realise this hadn't happened before. The game should get alot of extra media coverage now, let's hope we put a performance in. Refereeing is a tough gig, usually one of the sides will be slating her performance, fair play to anyone who chooses to take up the whistle as a career.

I totally agree with all that you've said!
