  1. Being looked at by Arsenal and a couple of other top EPL clubs, he'll be way out of our price range, even with money from Alfredo.
  2. Unfortunately its the rules these days. Players have to leave the pitch at the closest point when being replaced. Its to stop the time wasting that used to happen walking off. He is a completely useless ref, without having a go at him for something that he didn't get wrong. Surely its the stewards and police that should be amongst the junkies stopping them.
  3. Not just him, one of the backroom staff too. I just saw a player running to his team mate and having to protect himself from the unwarranted attention of a taig in uniform.
  4. There are much worse places, Coatbridge springs readily to mind.
  5. Almost like getting another Portugese team and just up the road from me so would be a winner.
  6. The Maguire incident was checked and the VAR officials said no red card. It doesn't get announced if its a negative check but not a goal. VAR was supposed to be for 'clear and obvious' errors. The offside nonsense is way beyond that. They are taking minimal calls. If they stick to the 'clear and obvious' principle then I'd have less of an issue.
  7. Almost scored a second, looking the better, if smaller team. Mebude and Kennedy playing very well. Solid at the back too.
  8. 1-0 Rangers, Mebude scored. Its on the BBC hurdy gurdy channel with Ross Tokely summarising.
  9. No need to 'trawl' for anything and I'm certainly not 'offended' (whatever thats supposed to be). If Clancy is just a 'poor' ref, you'd expect the balance of poor decisions to even out but they dont. Its not 'being offended' to expect parity and fair treatment by an official. Oh and I was absolutely delighted with the win despite the officiating. Funnily enough it is perfectly possible to express both delight at the outcome AND question the partiality of the officials. They aren't mutually exclusive. Your ilk are the very reason referees like Clancy are still officiating at the highest level. I want officials to be even handed (its how I was taught to officiate), isn't it better to question from the standpoint of winners than be dismissed as sore losers?
  10. I actually believe he is being serious, know him from when I lived up there and had a season ticket. I'd just like him to justify his position in light of events surrounding the game. Its all very well disagreeing but he has no evidential basis for his stance.
  11. Theres none so blind as cannot see. Can you justify Clancys decision making, the Sun dragging up an incident from last season and the BBCs reporting of Christie being cited as anything other than bias? I can honestly say I've never seen a performance as poor/biased even in a Sunday league game. Now is the time to press the point as we can't be accused of being sore losers. Its two games in a row against that shower that officials have favoured them. Its just this time we were far better than them. Even my friends down here have taken notice and they have no affiliation to either side (I'm working on it though).
  12. Its usually the club secretary (definitely in England, used to do it for the Sunday team I was secretary of and know a non league secretary that does it now), taking account of the managers views of course. I think the higher you go the mire of a formailty it is. I think it needs a root and branch reform in Scotland and foreign refs for games like yesterday, you need the best there is and Scottish referees are beyond poor.
  13. Not sure but its similar to England I think. Here, as well as assessors at games, both clubs give the referee a mark out of 10. If they score below a certain mark it has to be explained. They get a point for turning up on time, one for wearing the right kit and one for kicking off in time, if I remember rightly. Most of them will be getting 8s and 9s. These get added to any assessors reports and referees, at lower levels, get promoted on the basis of performance. I dont think you are likely to see anything published, refereeing in Scotland is very much a closed shop. England used to be much the same but has improved a little in the last few years.
  14. They, generally, have assessors at the game to assess the referees performance. Usually an ex referee though and unlikely to be highly critical of performances like the one yesterday. Some years ago I was on a course with a guy who was an SFA assessor and he spent a lot of time defending the referees when I questioned some of the decisions I'd seen. Its all very much an in-house process. I'd like to see assessors from other countries take a look and see how they assess the decision making that seems to be weighted against Rangers more often than not.
  15. I've only just seen it, been a bit busy with various things recently. Will sort it this morning. Have a Merry Christmas.
