yes and what about their all time best player Howard Webb. He was world class for them.
I agree he does like the attention, but Howard Webb watching the game for BT could do the same job for the FA and avoid it all
If Howard Webb can tell the BT viewers if it was a red card within seconds, why can't an actual referee do that at the time baffling.

I agree with that Katie but compared to some Refs we've had, he was positively Howard Webb 😩
