It was one of the worst London derby's in terms of anybody grabbing the game and taking it by the scruff of the neck.|
Loads of players had off days today. On both sides. It was tense, but really only because you thought either team could fuck it all up.
I thought the ref had a blinder today. I especially liked him playing advantage and letting the game go on quite a while to see whether the team actually had an advantage or not. Not just blowing the whistle or giving it a second, watching the team give it away, and then saying 'well I gave advantage'. Wasn't card happy, let it flow (as much as the game flowed anyway) and reffed it well. Credit where credit's due, seeing as they normally get most of the flack.
