I go back to my original post, just get out of the fucking way. By the way great research.
You are exactly right. The ref should be on the opposite side of the pitch to his assistant generally. However, there is nothing to stop them being 5 yards further back and not then be in the way. It is really poor to get caught up in play or be in the way. These guys are supposed to be the top of their profession and this should not happen more than once in a game. Mind you, I have noticed this happening in other games not involving City. Old school refs were always taught to stay 15 to 20m yards behind play in order to get a more open view of whats happening but these days Mike Riley has deemed 8 yards away to be the primary viewing position and hence more chance of being in the way.
PS. St Pauli's diagram is the basic pattern you are told to run but you do not have to strictly run those patterns which our current crop seem to be doing.
The current crop seem to be doing whatever it takes to get in the way, not out of the way.
Let's see fat boy Moss run the diagonal!
He will — from just outside our box to the penalty spot. ;-)
Run fat boy run should be a chant tonight.
Since I'm in South Stand Level 2 tonight I shall have my eyes on Mr Moss and his diagonals ;)
That’s a euphemism I’m not familiar with!
Didn't run much & seems more porky than fat now. Unless it was the lights & bright red/orange is sliming.
