It’s true it’s damn true, one of the worst refs in the business, which is some going to even be considered for that title in this country, is taking charge of the biggest game of the season so far.
Johnathan ‘John’ Beaton, who was only in a major controversy last week and who has been dishing out many dodgy decision already this season, will be the whistler for the game on the 19th.

And it the examples could go on all night.
Unfortunately I have places to be and it’s not behind a laptop ranting about this incompetent idiot with a whistle but nevertheless, we’re due another dodgy decision and it’d be nice if it was in a big game at Hampden.
I’m sure the outrage wouldn’t be too over the top of course!
