That is fucking shite from the FA, but sorry to say it doesn't surprise me in the slightest....

On a related matter, what 15 year old wants to be a referee.....
One of my lads' U16 team-mates is a ref for younger age groups, and one of the others is keen to take the course. They love football, it's a few quid in their pocket and they feel it enhances their understanding of the game.

Poor kid, whether up to it or not that's no way to treat a ref. Guess the FA have set conduct rules on referees marks, the consequences of being marked lowly being automatic hearing... Should be supporting him not putting him off.

-----------------------------------

Tell you what, we had a ref about that age (or probably a bit older) for an U14 game this season at Calne.

Judged the book by the cover - expected a weak and easily influenced ref - not that he'd get stick for it, but its hard at that age.

Best ref we've had for...well..that I can remember. Not only did he get every decision right (or nearly Smiley ), the way he talked to players explaining why he gave what he did was superb. Can't praise him highly enough.

Didn't Man Utd have 5 in one season a couple of years back?

For bigger clubs its an easy money maker really.

Expansion of Barcelona's airport is not possible because "planes are not allowed to fly over Lionel Messi's house", according to Vueling president Javier Sanchez-Prieto.

I really don't know what to say.  All I have is to put this here.  That is pretty much it for the future of our game, it's all over.

That is such a bollocks story the Advertiser would be proud of it.... The restriction has fuck all to do with Messi and relates to an environmental control over that part of the town within which Messi happens to live, its just an airline seeing an opportunity for a bit of free press in Marca, a paper that is notoriously Madrid centric and anti Barcelona.

Suddenly many of the FA's decisions make sense...

Note - I am not commenting specifically on the rights and wrongs of what he said but  purely on his apparent total lack of appreciation of context....

 So Johnson's response to the apparent Russian hit in Sarum, is to say in Parliament, that we'll withdraw dignitaries from visiting Russia at the WC.... that'll learn em.

Notts County reportedly offering 30 year old former former Sporting, Sevilla and Anderlecht winger Diego Capel a 15,000 per week deal. He's currently a free agent.

seems like the opposite happened.

Alan Hardy says we tried to sign a Spanish forward but his wage demands were too excessive so talks abandoned.

These press reports therefore would seem to be exaggerated and out of date. As you say the story is not worth the paper it's written on.

Please tell me where you read that this latest story has come directly from our chairman. On his Twitter account he says never let the facts get in the way of a good story. Good enough?

Indeed.
Hope Sky Sports get rid so I never have to listen to that awful droning Scouse accent of his.
