    Yeah maybe I should have said most of the modern players.

    Tony Book and Bobby Charlton - and no doubt hundreds more - were smokers.

    Imagine KDB to Pep on being summoned off the bench: “Be on in a minute, boss. Just finishing me Woodbine”.

    That incident showed just how stupid some refs are. He paced it out and was clearly 2 yards short. So Joe paced it out.....booked for dissent. Now then, its six yards to the edge of the goal area and another six to the spot, and another six to the edge of the penalty area. How difficult can it be to estimate the spot just by eye?

    Very good point about the south American players hacking down any kid who looks as tho he might make it to Europe. .I watched a number of old vids on u tube a while back and the stick Gabriel Jesus takes is brutal..some of the challenges made me wince...a lot worse than the stuff dished out on him at Bournemouth a couple of seasons ago....and the pitches,as you say,were crap.

    Referees have to assert their authority. That was clearly dissent, even though Joe was right and the referee was a pillock.
