What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

'Undoubtedly Graham Poll has been this country's top referee over the past ten years' Sir Alex Ferguson‘England’s No 1 match official has lifted the lid on the disillusionment shared by many colleagues’ Daily Mail‘Poll's fascinating response to years of criticism as one of England's top officials is far more interesting than the standard fare trotted out by most players these days - it also evokes the rarest of things in a football fan: sympathy for the referee.' 442 Magazine

Being the memoirs of the famed referee who was hounded from the game after his gaffe in a big European match. I was convinced of Poll's apologia that the overreaction was unfair before I opened the book, so his self-defenses were not that interesting to me. What I found most interesting were his accounts of life on the road, and the too-few sections where he talks about his preparations for a match and how he went about positioning himself in various situations.

Autobiography of Tring's top-rated soccer referee, who unfortunately became best known for giving 3 yellow cards to a Croatian in the 2006 World Cup final. Explains how tough a job top referees have & how fit they need to be.
