Following the recent spat between Arsenal and Chelsea, I have just seen an interview with an ex FA Compliance officer and his comments regarding referees being "economical" with the truth and how the FA can withold evidence about a players or managers innocence.

I hope Arsene Wenger takes the FA to the docks and shows what a shambles they are.

Personally, i do think that we have the best league in the world along with the best referees, obviously they will make mistakes but one thing i hate about them is that even if they are wrong they will not admit they are wrong and they will get the full backing of the FA. If they are gonna discipline players for their mistakes, why not discipline referees.

You should see the muppets we have that ref in Scotland.
At least in england they come on tv and explain their decision.
At times I'm sure their just making it up as they go along.

Are you Vladimir Romanov in disguise then?

Remember an English Premiership referee is a professional who gets paid very well for the job whereas a Scottish Premier league referee only gets couple of hundred quid a game. We also have the "whistleblower" site here which allows referees to explain decisions and admit mistakes.

its a hard job i would not like to ref or lino :(

i think it takes a very strong person to be able to do it.

i was annoyed the other night with a certain ref lol, to be honest i thought the ref on the chelsea game was a little slow to blow up for chelsea but arsenal, manchester utd... we all had the refs decissions when we was on top and thats the way it goes.

the top team always gets the refs decissions arsenal have had there fair share of decissions i have seen a few dodgy ones go our way for sure!

but what i dont like is if they make a mistake in the game... i.e the penalty decission that maybe would of put arsenal in front thats fine it happens and we have to move on

but the wrong red card to adebayer i know he was out of order after but he is like 23 and still young imagin police arrested you for the wrong reasons i know its a bit different but still you can understand his anger even though he should of shown maturity.

that should be taken into account and droped ffs its clear on video evidence he done nothing

and until last night i had not seen the eboue incident and wayne bridge should get banned for acting of the worst order yes he caught him but rolling around like that lol its comical, and the FA banning him for 3 games HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA thats a joke init ? lololololol

anyway as i said we should not blame refs so much its easy to do it but put yourself in there shoes i dunno if anyone of us could do it.
