    Did any City player shake hands with that cheating prick yesterday? I'm pretty sure Eerson just had words and walked off to give his shirt away.

    Shake hands?

    I suspect like 99% of the crowd shaking him by the throat would have been preferable but would result in a ban so as my dear old mum used to say, if you can't be nice do nothing.

    I was surprised when they got the first yellow. I honestly though it would go to us.

    Mind you, we had 75% possession, yet received 75% of the yellow cards (including the bulls*it card for timewasting. Eddie was booked for holding on to the ball for way less time than their keeper was getting away with from minute 1 of the game). That just highlights the blatant disparity of the referees 'interpretation' of the laws of the game.

    I think this typifies too many performances I see from referees. They know that if there's the slightest questioning from a player as to WTF are you doing ref then he's in his back pocket for a yellow. Any independent assessor witnessing the latest Masonic performance couldn't in all honesty have given it more than three out of ten - one for turning up, two for a whistle and the third one for having the wherewithal for the toss up!

    The problem is, they DO know the LOTG, and how interpret them.. They wouldn't have got as far as they have without that knowledge.
    However, when they get to the elite level, football politics become involved. To remain in the top tier of the game, THEY HAVE TO OBEY ORDERS. The Nuremburg Defence would most definitely be used if the corruption we all suspect is endemic in the game was exposed, and they were in the Dock at the Football Crimes Commission (to continue the analogy). They are just the pawns, nothing more. The corruption goes right to the top, and I, for one, am sick of it.

    On Saturday, at 5;30 pm, I will not be at the game. I will be at a function to commemorate the 10th anniversary of a very good friend's death. Normally, all present would expect me to arrive after the match, having changed in the car. The events of the past few matches have served to remind me of what is actually important in life.

    Fair play. A lot of people are starting to feel this way now.

    Football is fixed, and I'm pretty sure there would some very serious consequences for anyone from within who dared to lift the lid. I really don't know what the solution is.

    For Burnley : Referee: Jonathan Moss. Assistants: Marc Perry, Eddie Smart. Fourth official: Martin Atkinson. VAR: Graham Scott. Assistant VAR: Andy Halliday.

    Scott at VAR, remember the Tottenham game.

    What a motley crew! Jonny won't have got his breath back from the last game, Atkinson couldn't find a way to screw us in the CFC game so he gets another chance, and Scott wants to see if he can get a pair of chalked off goals for his collection. The two linos are effectively redundant and are only their to add to the FArce's notion of tradition! The game's attraction is diminishing at a rate of knots.
