Poll Quits International Football

ENGLISH referee Graham Poll has decided to retire from international tournaments after his high-profile blunder in the Australia-Croatia Group F game at the World Cup finals. He showed three yellow cards to Josip Simunic of Croatia before sending him off in the 2-2 draw on June 22. A clearly emotional Poll said on Sky Sports News that he deeply regretted his mistake, which he described as "inexcusable".

I don't think he should have retired; he had a good track record until this game. I kinda feel bad.

I'm so proud of our guys. They played so amazingly well; they rose to the occastion and fought hard in every game. THEY PLAYED SO WELL.

But I just have to say it... )

But yes. I am proud to be an Aussie! GO US!

I have had about 5 hours sleep. OMG SO TIRED. AND GRUMPY cause WE LOST AND IT WASN'T OUR FAULT. *cries*

Poll reveals poor reffing, Referee Poll goes to pot...

You bet he did. Just count the number of serious possibly-game-costing mistakes he made. I kinda feel sorry for him - he wasn't biased or anything. Just missed some serious stuff, and managed to forget a yellow card he'd given less than 30 minutes earlier.

WE GOT THROUGH OMG YAY!

2-2! YEAH! WHAT A GAME!

But yes. I agree with all of you - OMG REF? WHERE DID YOU LEAVE YOUR BRAINS? AND YOUR EYES? TWO handballs = TWO penalties. And TWO YELLOW CARDS = a RED CARD = OFF THE FIELD. STOOPID.

Yo, that Croatian who handballed twice is going to *so* get a beating from his teammates.

Technically, a handball stopping the ball from scoring should be a red card. Just so y'all know. Lucky it wasn't going in.

HOW AM I NOW SUPPOSED TO STUDY? HMMM?

IT IS OFFICIALLY NOT FAIR. *grumps loudly*

The Croatia vs Australia game is on Friday 5am. My exam is Friday 2:30pm. *sulks*

Got up to watch the Brazil vs Aus game this morning at 2am. Game finished at 4am. Got up at 7am to do washing, then go back to bed till 11:30 for work at 1pm. Got call from work at 8:15am.

*cries*

I'm offically doing 9:45am to 7pm. Then I'm going home TO BED.

We're doing really well - beat Japan 3-0, but Brazil beat us 2-0. We played fantastically - they only scored in the last half, and both were really fluke shots. We just have to win or draw with Croatia to progress to the next round. Yay!
