Has He Been To Stoke Already ?? Pretty Sure We've Seen Him! Or A Few Like Him.

We've had our share of interesting decisions at Stoke lately. But last night at Charlton Steve Artis proved again that ref's and their assistants are only human and that in the heat of the match its possible for them to get things horribly wrong.

Handball there definitely wasn't by the Charlton defender Triore....but the consequent, wrongly awarded free kick led to Fulham's equaliser. Its only a game, but the future financial consequences of such decisions can often be considerable.

It may be my imagination but often it seems to be the case that, physically, the closer the official is to an incident the less he/she actually sees.
