Stuart Pearce should speak up and be more critical of poor referring according to our latest web poll.
An overwhelming two thirds of you said that Pearce should be more critcal of referees' performances following the controversy at last weekend's defeat at Chelsea where Drogba's antics and deliberate handball, along with Rob Stiles' harsh dismissal of Sylvain Distin marred the game.
I'm sure that Psycho will try to continue to bite his tongue for the timebeing - he's made a rod for his own back now, but it's going to be difficult for him to maintain this stance in the face of rapidly falling refereeing standards and their failure to penalise blatant cheating.
Nobody is trying to justify arguing with the referee on the pitch, but it begs the question just how does a player or manager express an opinion about the performance of a referee or other match official without incurring the wrath of the FA. It seems that referees are beyond reproach and not properly accountable - that just cannot be right!
