yeah I've reffed quite a few games when the refs not shown up, had plenty of teams say they'd sooner I did it than some of the other refs.

I'm not trying to defend some of his mistakes - but we are all prone to mistakes, on occasion.
I'll tell you why I think that the self-styled 'Thing From Tring' is an absolute feck shithouse, Zulu, and that's because he's waited to see his last paycheque clear and then, and only then, decided to speak out against the F.A.

We all know that there are myriad problems within the F.A., so why didn't old three-card-trick Poll speak up before now if he finds them to be of such concern?

The fat-arsed feck holds no credibility with me, not one iota! It's not even as though he was good at his own job.
In short, we have someone that's shown himself up to be shit at his job, totally inept, but on a global scale, slagging off his paymasters for being shit at theirs, just as soon as the last of the money has gone in. What an absolute c*nt.

I think you've just answered a question I didn't ask, Bruce. :D

People's opinions on referees are bound to vary. I just happen to think that Poll's competence was much higher than many give credit.
