Looked up to see who is ref for tomorrow.

Kevin Clancy, not my favourite, is the ref but listed in the match next to ours on the fixture list , Dunfy vs Raith is our old pal Craig Thomson. Obviously alive and kicking and operating at our level.

Don't know how they pick them but I don't want him anywhere near any of our games. Gives me a chill down the spine. Hopefully we have dodged a bullet.

The Jambo linesman, Graeme Leslie, is on duty at Falkirk vs Morton. What's the chances of a Morton goal chalked off for offside or/and a Falkirk goal allowed even though it's offside?

Might sound paranoid but the treatment we've had from officials this season has really got to me.

Kevin Clancy had a superb game recently at Hearts (v Dundee) - let the game flow and he's becoming less pedantic. Definitely improving as a ref. Had a blether with James McPake that day as well - still loves Hibs and interesting chat about Butcher !

Do elaborate about Butcher?

Have to say I would have Craig Thomson referee all of our games in this league compared to the absolute rubbish we have been subjected to this season and last!!

Nothing we don't already know mate (sadly) - ruined the club and dressing room.

It was interesting seeing JMcP and Hartley - it's clear (to me) that there's a big mutual respect and I can see James maybe moving into management soon depending on resumption from injury.

I ended up going to the Pars v Raith game (with the local team I coach) and Thomson was equally as pish / inconsistent as always. Some ridiculous decisions and was booed off by the home fans

Clancy denies us what sounds like a stonewall penalty, Falkirk get late, late equaliser, Raith get the refereeing breaks.

Do I detect a pattern here? We are playing 12 men every week.
