As already mentioned I thought he was a good leader. Played some very good games for us with the odd goal thrown in for good measure. 500 games is a career he can look back on with satisfaction.

Is Richard Masters part of the government 'think tank'? What a ridiculous, non-thought out idea. I go to the match with my family.Always have and always will. Three generations of us.
Are these people put in a room and locked in until they come up with some innovation or new idea? Incredibly naive.

Re: Crowd Noise

How surreal do you want it to be? Playing in an empty stadium is bad enough but adding fake crowd noises won't make it any better. Perhaps announcing ongoing scores of other games if they are going against the opposition might be funny especially in a Fred Elliott style.
