Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
In my previous post I forgot to say that I was disappointed by the referee who made no attempt to stop Liverpool's attempts right from the kick-off to waste time. They did everything they could to slow the game down and the ref did absolutely nothing about it. Ok most teams do it towards the end of a game but from the start it is a little boring. It worked as it ruffled the City Players which upset their style of play.
I don't blame Liverpool the Ref was to blame. All good players will play to the referee. There was no time added at half time to allow for this and also for some hold-ups for injuries.
I don't think he was biassed just inexperienced.
Perhaps the rugby League method of logging time wasting and stoppages would help.
