England get man in World Cup Final

July 6, 2010

FIFA have retained the services of Manchester United employee, Howard Webb, and he now looks very likely to be in charge of the World Cup Final this coming Sunday evening.

Having not been selected to officiate any of the Quarters or Semis, the bentest referee from the English Premiership now has his card stamped to ref the biggest game of them all.

Bacon face from Manc United will no doubt  be sending his man the warmest of congratulations if he does indeed get the final.

Having got the Champions League Final gig in Madrid earlier this year, it would cap a fantastic season for the brown paper envelopes, former copper from Rotherham.

The last time a man from this Island got the green light to referee the World Cup Final was Wolverhampton born Jack Taylor at the 1974 Finals in Germany.

The 1974 Final was between Germany and Holland,  with two penalties awarded inside the first half an hour of play.

Think it’s a tough ask to see those two nations reach the pinnacle of World Football this week.

Holland have a very tough tie against an organised and underrated Uruguayan side this evening… Suarez being banned is not the worst thing in the world for the South Americans, he plays far too selfishly on this stage, if Abreu gets the nod tonight to play up with Forlan and Caveni, I expect the Dutch defence to be under plenty of pressure.

De Jong will be a big miss for the Dutch and Van de Weil being replaced by the woeful Boulahrouz at right-back is another bonus for the Uruguayans.

Very difficult game to call, the betting odds make the dutch odds-on to win, not so sure it will be that straight forward.

It may take extra time and penalties for the Oranje to prevail.

Again, best of luck to Robin and the Dutch.

    Couldn`t agree more about webb`s utd bias, however based on his and his assistants performances at this WC, he fully deserves to referee the final. Its funny how this cunt has not put a foot wrong during this tournament, yet when he officiates manure, he never puts a foot right. Its time our F.A started doing more intense background checks on the people refereeing EPL matches.

  7. VERY VERY VALID POINTS, Johnny

    He has actually been the highest rated ref this world cup, and to be fair to him has got all the major decisions right.

    Which does beg the question you pose re: his total fucks ups when utd are involved.

    it seems we will get him but for 115k p week? does this mean Fukkregas will 100 % leave? I really hope for it cause we could use the money to buy either ozil, schweinsteiger or gourcuff to replace him!!!
