Sorry guys if you have seen this before, but it made me chuckle. I have just been reading through the BBC's Sports website and noticed a contribution from a fellow blue in response to the You are the ref blog. Look at comment number 5.
Now who says we are bitter blues? ToffeeDan whoever you are you are, thanks for making me smile today.

A - turn down the offer as it might compromise your neutrality for matches with this team
B- go but stay away from the players, remaining neutral and keeping your professional integrity
C- Yes please sir, can I have a shirt sir, Oh Stevie can I sit next to you and be your friend.
Like the Murphy’s- I’m not bitter!

Thanks for the kind words!
Bitter - not me sir, no, but can’t wait for the look on the faces of the RS when it all goes down the pan.
D: Do you declare the the Referee’s Association that one of these teams are your first love in order that you don’t referee their games again. Never mind Chris Foy (a well known Blue) is going to ref all their games next season!
Keep up the good work.

A, Do so continuing the same high standards you set for yourself throughout your long and illustrious career?
B, Screw over the least wanted of five English teams in the competition, blow for free kicks against a Scotsman simply for him being tall, be lenient towards the Spaniards, rule out a late goal because it wasn?t in your game plan, and despite starting a new season quickly retire with Sep Blatter shaking your hand then off you go to the sell your autobiography you bald headed sod.

Do you call time on a vital World Cup match as the favourites are taking a corner or let them take the corner in order that you might make a name for yourself by disallowing the goal as time runs out (oh and set a precedent for another British referee to mess up in a World Cup finals and call time on a match as a legitmate goal comes off the backside of an attacking player in a local Derby).
Do you also allow a legitimate goal to stand in an FA Cup Semi Final or do you disallow it because the scorer once played for Ipswich Town and you were once a winger for Norwich City?
