What can I say, referees are human and make mistakes. But it’s difficult to accept a case of mistaken identity especially when players, coaches as well as linesman are all telling the referee he is about to send off the wrong player.
He acknowledges the advice of the linesman yet still sends off the wrong player. Not only do you feel aggrieved but it makes you think that something more sinister is happening. Even if the card is rescinded which I’m sure it will be, the immense damage has already been done.
Back to the match, I think under the circumstances our players represented the club with pride and dedication. Our log position may not show this but we are ultra proud of the commitment our players show each time they represent the club.
