Don't mind who the ref is at a game as long as they are impartial,read the game correctly and are not card happy.We all have seen bad ref's in our time,good ones too.It's time to implement a similar system to what they use now in tennis,have the goal line monitored,every season we see goals disallowed,the ref and his assistants getting it wrong whilst the fans can clearly see the ball has crossed over the line.It wouldn't cost much to bring in such a system,I am fairly sure we would all welcome this.
