Did the referee make the right call in the game? There’s still a lot of people animated over the incident
Brian Gavin, never one of the best referee’s in the country, full of himself. Loved to be the centre of attention. Two of the best players in the game, both said yellow card was the right call. The ball was there to be pulled on. Time for Mr Gavin to dissappear, for good. A failed has been as a ref, still trying to grab all the attention. Take up tiddlywinks, ffs.
