Red card for Styles

As it's Psycho's policy not to comment on referees, we, or rather you have done it for him.

Rob Styles: 46%

Howard Webb: 17%

Mike Riley 15%

Graham Poll 15%

Steve Bennett: 5%

Phil Dowd 2%


Congratulations then Mr Styles, after last week's performance, you've been shown our red card !

I don't blame Stuart Pearce for being tight lipped on criticism of referees, the way the FA react to any sort of misdemeanour, as Sam Allardyce is now finding out, he is best served by keeping his mouth shut. I think it is time the FA be made accountable for the guidelines issued to referees. Whilst I agree with their policy to clean up the game they seem to have made their policies too rigid either that or referees are to frightened to use common sense in their decisions. Personally I think we have a poor lot of referees and we need the likes of the calibre of Collina who used plenty of common sense despite being hide bound by FIFA and UEFA guidelines which consequently made him the best in the world
