Referees should receive some kind of punishment for totally inept performances such as last night. Prior to the red he was dreadful, but that decision just took it to the extreme. This season has been an all-time low in terms of standards of refereeing at this level, and they’re not held accountable for their decisions. EFL are very quick to punish clubs for mistakes but shield their officials from any blame.
Technically the WBA player should also face action, given the rules. Increase the ban slightly for his sheer stupidity that his play-acting could’ve weakened us against the only side who can prevent them getting promoted.
I still think that Phil will have a go at signing Zoet (probably on loan with a view to buying at the end of his contract) next season. He has been bombed out at PSV and obviously being his go to No 1 for four years will be on his radar.
Still only 28 ish
