No Premier League this weekend, so I had to watch some real footy last night.
Sadly, there’s no VAR in the Championship. (Although.)
Which means you can get away with this sort of thing. Amazingly.
And yes, to add insult to injury, Josh Koroma scored just six minutes later.
The ref had an absolute shocker in this game, which means that he won’t have to answer any questions about how poor he was, won’t be docked any pay*, and will be back on the list to referee another game in a few days time.
Consequences, ne? That’ll learn him.
* Championship referees earn a basic yearly retainer of between £38,500 and £42,000 based on their experience officiating, and then £600 per game
