imagine this:

Spain attacking
the crowd shouts VAMOS!!!!
the linesman turns back: Huh???
he misses to flag a spanish offside!

;)


actually no complaint about offsides
or rather, ther have been 3 or 4 wrong calls, but neither on significant actions

:D

I think the standard of refereeing has been generally very good.

Apparently England's Howard Webb is the current bookies favourite to referee the final, so er... England could still be in the final after all...

Howard Webb confirmed as the ref for the final according to Sky Sports News. This isn't really very exciting news is it. Hmm.

Let's hope for no cockups from him ruining the final. :D

and let's also hope the players play their part by not dragging it into a dive and niggle fest
