Once upon a time English referees were looked upon as being the best in the world, but what i witnessed last night, i watched the SUFC - Burton game live via stream, and right from the kickoff the ref showed bias toward Burton, no this is not bad eggs becoz SUFC didnt get to the final, My assertions are based on what the commentators said during the game, the first 3 tackles EGan laid he was penalised for and on each occassion the commentators said the referee had got it wrong.now what does this do for Egans frame of mind, he knew his tackles were fair ,you could see him wondering what he did wrong,he even asked the question to the ref.how many free kicks did SUFC get in dangerous positions compared to Burton, also that free leading to Burtons 2nd goal , i always thought the first foul should be given .Anyway rant over , but if thats the standard of English referees then i feel sorry for the game over ther.As it was it was a game played with great passion by both sides,even though i didnt agree with Burtons time wasting tactics and acting.And the SUFC supporters were fantastic.
