Confused? Me?

You will really have to excuse me. There's a senior moment coming, after all I'm in my mid fifties. Although I do admit to 23, on a good day. Yes, I've had a hard life. I am after all a 44 year Evertonian.

Now, I've just about got over the Derby match. Yes, it will hurt for quite a while. What I have been waiting for is some sort of sanction against THAT ref.

I'm a great believer in natural justice. If a perceived wrong is committed. The powers that be will deal with it.

The ref apparently last week was on a long planned jolly. So what do we have this week? The man himself reffing a premier match, Fulham v Reading.

So what does that tell us? Namely that David Moyes in particular got it wrong. Kuyt did only deserve a yellow card and that Carragher was attacked by Lescott in the penalty area.

So using the inaction of the FA, THe Premier League or the Refs bosses. David Moyes should be brought to book for attacking the integrity of that ref.

Watch this space, 'FA charge Moyes'. It is a more likely scenaro than 'FA charge ref'.

If that does happen I suggest that we Evertonians should all chip in a tenner a piece for his inevitable fine.

But, what do I know, I'm just a confused middle aged git. I don't mind being beaten, but not when the opposition have 12 players on the pitch.

Sorry to bring this guy's name up again when we're on a roll of positivity at the minute, but I happened to catch 'Goals on Sunday' (possibly Sky's least irritating program) this morning. It showed Clattenburg reffing the Fulham v Reading game. Near the end he sent off the young Fulham defender with a straight red for a mistimed tackle on a Reading player. Even the Reading player was shocked with the decision which was way over the top.

Sky showed the Kuyt tackle again which guest Ray Parlour described as a 'kung fu' tackle. Now my point is, with such gross inconsistency on this tackle alone (never mind the other 'errors' on Derby Day) how can the FA not publicly take this man up on this?

It is still galling to note, especially when you look at the league table and see that, with even a draw that day, we'd be above them. (Not the be-all and end-all I know, but helps me sleep better at night !). Whilst a public rebuke (and suspension) would not redress the balance, it would at least restore some credibility to the powers that be.
