Inspired by the pathetic Halsey I'd like to have personally pulled the trigger on

1. Durkin for being the only person on the pitch, the bench, as well as the 60,000 in the ground and the millions of Sky viewers to see anything wrong with Sherwoods goal at Old Trafford.

2. Whoever sent Wilcox off at Nottingham for dropping the ball onto the ground (presumably instead of wiping it, drying it and handing it gently to a Forest player).

3. The complete nobhead who issued Gazza with a caution for returning the yellow card that he had dropped and presumably applying a touch of humour to the Scottish game. (He should be bellyshot cos it causes intense pain and takes longer to die).

It was a shocking decision. Seem to think it was a clown who went by the name of Paul Danson.

Probably a Celtic fan who doesn't like the English, Theno. Either that or he's the most arrogant sod in Scotland.

I wonder what would have happened if Gazza had already been on a yellow card. Would this plonker of a ref have sent Gascoigne off for holding up a card ?

Five others I'd like to add to your list Gord....

1) Ali Ben Naseur, the Tunisian ref who missed the so-called "hand of God" goal in 1986. This bungling Tunisian amateur should never have been put in charge of such an important match.

In his autobiography a few years ago, Maradona said: "Now I feel I am able to say what I couldn't then. At the time I called it 'the hand of God'. B*llocks was it the hand of God, it was the hand of Diego! And it felt like pickpocketing the English."


2) Steve Bennett, the south London ref for the Rovers/Bolton match at Ewood last season - who despite not being far away, failed to notice that 'Spit the Dog' Diouf had clearly dived in the box for a penalty.

3) Urs Meier - the bungling Swiss ref with the dodgy goatee beard who disallowed Sol Campbell's goal against Portugal in Euro 2004.

4) I don't usually stick up for the French, but.... the myopic ref who refused to punish a shocking disgraceful foul in the 1982 World Cup semi-final between France and Germany. France's Patrick Battiston was played clean through, with only the Kraut keeper Harald Schumacher to beat.

Schumacher deliberately launched himself at Battiston, smashing into the Frenchman's face, leaving him unconscious with a broken jaw. While Battiston was stretchered off, to spend months in recovery, the stupid ref awarded a goal-kick!

5) The referee in the early 1980's who failed to notice a shot by Clive Allen which went into the back of the goal after striking the stanchion. The goal wasn't given.

Not only did he miss Maradonna cheating he also missed at least one penalty shout for England as Lineker was pushed into the nets. I have still not forgiven England for wearing the colour of shorts they did that day.

I must be in a minority here, but every time I see the Hand Of God goal, it's never apparent that he punches the ball into the net. Obviously he does, and slow-motion replays etc prove it, but with the naked eye at realtime speed I still struggle to spot it blatantly. I think the players reactions have to help a referee sometimes. Everybody around the ball immediately appealed for handball. Now that's not usual for a striker winning a header against a goalkeeper. The referee has to call what he sees, but watching the instinctive reaction of all those invovled must give him clues.

Chalk up Ashby at Ewood Park, 1994 vs Manchester United. Berg wins the ball from Sharp, and amazingly is given a penalty against him and sent off. Crazy.

A little known fact I think, but Urs Meier refereed at Ewood Park in 1995.

He officiated for the Rovers-Legia Warsaw game in the Champions League - the game when Shearer missed a last minute one-on-one that would have taken us to the quarter-finals.

Rennie....the guy has his own agent for gods sake.
Never forgave Ashby for 94 against Utd. However, the chap dropped dead last year unexpectedly. Seems silly to hold a grudge when you put things in to perspective but that along with Durkin at OT cost us points against our then biggest title challengers.
Life moves pretty fast.
Somtimes you gotta stop and take a look around.

I'd agree with that. I've only ever seen him have a few bad games. It'll come though - something will go badly against us and we'll hate him forever. In regards to the Mendes "goal", I don't think that was a refereeing error. He couldn't see it any better than the linesman and certainly couldn't give it without the signal from his assistaint.

This was bettered only by a Scottish ref called Les Mottram a few years ago when he was reffing Partick v Dundee United. A shot went into the goal, hit the stansion and bounced out. As the fans celebrated a defender caught the ball and threw it back to the keeper who booted it back to the centre. What did our Les do? He played on of course. Surely the best ever to miss a gaol and a clear penalty in 1 go.

i can't actually tell wether or not that zurab touched the ball...even at full speed and on repalys too. what makes it hard to understand for me was that the ball and player was running away from goal and all zurab had to do was shepherd the guy towards the byeline. however, in saying that if it was a free kick then it certainly was a yellow card at the very most...the ref without a doubt in my mind spoiled the game from that moment on. he was not the last defender and we had cover in the penalty area....so i think the ref has dropped a bollock on this one by spoiling the game.
