    No, just commenting on the fact that we believe he will try and chalk it off for any reason.

    Complaining that he might have ruled something out that he actually gave is tin foil hat behaviour.

    Fair enough but I watched him on Sunday, he was desperate, almost pleading with his linesman to stop running away and flag for offside. Also I have seen too many good goals chalked off for something only they have seen to be confident they are acting honestly.

    Just assume for a moment that he was thinking that he was sure that it was a header from Barkley, but he wanted to double check that the linesman had seen the same thing. In what way would his behaviour have been any different?

    If a ref does a poor job, fair enough to call him out on it. When he actually gives it, complaining is ludicrous.
     
  5. I was so alarmed by that, I actually cut short celebrating the goal in order to shout at the ****.

    Unbefuckinglieveable that was. Never seen that before.

    Exactly as you described it, like he was begging the lino to find something wrong & wouldn't take 'no' for an answer.

    Even in a game where he gives us a pen & doesn't send anyone off, he still manages to be a ****.

    Then please have a word with Henkemen as I am sure he thinks it is just me and he certainly thinks I wear a tinfoil hat.
     
  7. From your description, I think it was worse than what you saw.

    I saw it immediately we scored, he was drawing an imaginary line in the air, at the lino & when he didn't get the answer he craved, he was like 'are you SURE?' . Didn't look happy. Never seen anything like that.

    Probably phoned Riley at half time & said 'sorry mate, done all I can, it was 3-0 before I knew it'.

    I watched it as well, in fact I didn't really cheer the goal because Sergio was miles "offside", I hadn't noticed that Barkley headed it to him, so looked straight away at the lino, and noticed Dean was talking to the lino too, as you say almost pleading with him for a reason not to give it.
