“Probably the worst referee in the world,”
say the people from Carlsberg
as the nation watched in disbelief
a performance of sweaty ineptitude.
Hard to disagree when the referee
brandishes cards like confetti,
awards one penalty, misses two
and gives three yellows to Simunic.
Worse than the brilliantined (not brilliant! )
ref from Mexico in England’s first game?
Certainly on a par, hard to
defend the indefensible.
The’Thing from Tring’ will be coming
home this weekend, hopefully
the only Englishman returning
from Germany to these shores.
And of course we all know
where Poll will end up:
down amongst the deadbeats
in Leagues One and Two.
Imagine the reaction of the County Ground faithful
when Poll struts out on to the pitch,
cards at the ready, pencil poised;
ready to dish out his own version of justice!
