Physical integrity not at the centre of the refereeing thoughts in another game.

Another game and another frustrating afternoon marred by confusing refereeing. It was a very good and even contest between Cambridge City and Cambridge United that ended up with the underdog winning 2-1 aet.  So why do I ended up being frustrated by the refereeing? I accept that I spent way too much time moaning aboutContinue reading “Physical integrity not at the centre of the refereeing thoughts in another game.”

Lack of high intensity levelContinue reading “Norway v Wales analysis”

A big upset to start the 2015 season. It was a curious with a well drilled Sunderland team and a sub par Liverpool side that struggled to break them down. Having missed the pre-game due to having my dinner and IT problem, I actually didn’t clock for the whole game that the Reds were playingContinue reading “Liverpool 1 Sunderland 2 The armchair view”
