We have 13 goals in 12 games and don't let in many. 2. 1. Home win or 1 all. Not much in it as usual.

Just like to point out that Morecambe scored 3 away at Portsmouth, 4 away at Yeovil, 3 away at Carlisle and 2 away at Newport!

RefWatch; Ref for Morecambe game (played them 8 times, W3 D3 L2) is Trevor 'Whistling' Kettle, 48, an RAF Air Traffic Controller from Rutland. 13th season as a FL ref. Consensus is that he is picky, easily bullied & rules by the whistle, like our great friend Gavin 'Wonderful' Ward. In a 2007 interview he declared how much he wanted to be a Prem ref. Didn't happen, did it, Trev. Also said he was introduced to reffing by his mum, so before he whistles he gets down on all fours, slowly licks the whistle up and down before slowly inserting the tip into his mouth and gently blowing, whilst rubbing his nipples. No wonder he blows so much. Reffed Wombles three times; 4-1 home defeat to Southend in Dec '11 (29 fouls, pen for them, 8 Y & red for Jolley), 0-0 draw with Oxford last November (just 2 Y), and 0-0 draw at home to Wycombe in April (4 Y & red for Wyc). Reffed Shrimps 3 times, 2 at the Globe (0-1-2; 10 Y & 2 pens). Loves the scum. Reffed them 3 times & they won 2. Monster. Home win % is 50%. In 8 games this season he has given 36 Y & 4 R - massively high.

Is it sad that I now open every Wimbledon match day thread just to read refwatch? It's the highlights of my week. :-D
Sadly, after there was some sort of balls-up with his login, we wombles no longer get to see ref watch first on our guestbook.

Come back Worried.

Got a feeling one side (in fact probably both) will have something bad to say about Kettle's performance come Saturday evening.

From what I have heard, stone wall penalty for us not given, dodgy penalty for them given, dodgy freekick for their second, ref was downright abysmal. I wonder if the highlights will back that up.

Definitely a pen for them. We should have had one in the first half though when two of their defenders were wrestling Bayo away from the ball. How the ref gave them a foul I'm not sure...
Think you should rephrase that mate. 2 of their defenders flattened Bayo. Yeah you read that right, 2 of their defenders flattened Akinfenwa. The strongest player on FIFA. Somehow a foul was given against him.

To be honest I don't actually agree that the ref was abysmal. He made a couple bad decisions, but the reason for that was because of the way Morecambe tried to play him in the first half. He was right to book nearly half of their team, plus the way their goalkeeper and their number 7 continued to appeal his decisions, I'm surprised no one got sent off.

This is nearly happening every match, and really Morecambe weren't especially unsporting compared to other teams!
