After a promising start the rot set in. Extremely poor decision making, not being able to read the game, often hopelessly out of position and often far, far too slow......but enough about Ipswich. Tony Bates gave a masterclass in quiet, understated authority, showing an excellent rapport with the players and not falling for a theatrical dive but quite rightly awarding a caution.
How very refreshing to see a referee who goes about his business efficiently, without ego and maintaining control without turning the match into a card fest.
The diminutive AR Mr Buonassissi appeared to spend much of the game doing a sort of clog dance; I assume trying to get the mud off his boots though it made him look ridiculous. Mind you, he is not afraid to show his enjoyment of officiating which is no bad thing.
Well m'learned friend...I rather fear Ipswich find their natural place in the hierarchy which is mid table mediocrity.
