Subject: RE: BS: Turkey v England in Istanbul
the thing that impressed me more than anything was the refereeing. Was n't it first class, I remember when English refereeing was the best in the world and the majority of refs used common sense just like Luigi Collina seems to. Now we have the 4th official whose job it is to stop more than 1 person at a time in a stupid little box on the touchline & lift a daft board up showing changes & extra time. Oh yes and we also have an adjudicator in the stands . what a debacle but that sums up the FA for me.
Football has moved on but not refereeing . Well done luigi (just in caes you are reading this)
