Re: RATE THE REF - Mike Dean v Manchester United

The game is only getting too complicated because the line between a foul and a dive are so drunkenly blurred as to be the same thing.
It makes it much harder for the ref to know what's a foul and what isn't and so the tackles with proper contact are invariably punished with a yellow card.

Re: A strong attacking minded central midfielder

I think our players just need to kick it a bit harder, to be honest. So many passes are pea rollers and end up being intercepted, or reaching a man who is now crowded, or ends up being played behind the receiver as he is quicker than the ball.
