Re: RATE THE REF - Kevin Friend v West Ham

I thought that was the best I’ve seen him. I liked the fact he played advantage and brought it back when nothing came of it.

That’s as openly critical of his players as I’ve ever heard from Dyche, and though it’s refreshing to hear in some respects, he also needs to look at himself.
