There are some people out there (some have even contributed to this page), who believe I moan too much about officials.
But what’s a level-headed, keen student of football with a highly-developed sense of fair play supposed to do when he sees such blatant incompetence so regularly.
Posh midfielder Jermaine Anderson was sent off last Saturday for tossing a water bottle into the ABAX Stadium crowd by accident.
Anderson was guilty of clumsiness, no more no less, so for any official to view the incident as violent conduct as the hapless fourth official on duty did is mind-boggling.
And for the FA to fail to rescind the red card is even more astonishing. What a bunch of twits as someone once almost said.
