    Brazil v Colombia

    The ref ruined the game for me by not showing any yellow cards for the countless first half fouls. So the players could get away with almost anything which made the second half a stop start niggly affair. Then he shows the first yellow for a bloke blocking a goal kick after James had been...

I mean, aside from the dubious idea of an elderly man entering the bedrooms of sleeping children and emptying his sacks, what else does he do?

    Referees Are Cowards

    Problems Mount Up For Rafa

    Where's the firepower now? Selling an unwanted Robbie Keane may have been embarrassing, but it was at least understandable. Not replacing him though? That could be a disaster. Liverpool are out of the FA Cup, but what about the league? As Fernando Torres limped away after 101 minutes of a...

    Speed twice and face a ban.
