|Yes a tad quiet on here but when was it any different ?|
Much has been said and written about the sending off at Gigg on Tuesday for the two diving offences. Whilst happy to accept the referee's decisions on this occasion I wonder if he would have made them without the well publicised example set by Michael Oliver at Stamford Bridge on Monday ?
So often players call a referee's bluff by committing offences after having been given an initial yellow card which everyone knows should result in a second but never does.
On a different and more trivial note am I the only one who cannot stop himself silently counting out the 10 yards when the referee is moving back the defensive wall for a free kick ? Very annoying !!
Let's hope Holty doesn't close this board at the end of the season but who could blame him ?
