Men In Black Update

Men In Black Update
When we got promoted to the Championship, I expected there to be an improvement in the quality of refereeing. I was wrong.

In general, the standard has been poor. At best, it has been inconsistent. Indeed, the only referee I can say that I think has done well every time he has refereed us is Andy D'Urso.

The average marks given to the referees to officiate us this season indicate just how inconsistent referees are.

Forum member SeasideEssexXile has kindly produced a table of the average marks for this season thus far, which can be viewed and discussed here.

Want to have your say on referees? Then why not join Vital Blackpool today, and post on our popular and friendly messageboard!
