Yep. Kicking the ball out deep in your own half for any reason is just daft because even if you do get the ball back from the throw, you're all penned in. Why not kick it long down field and off for a throw in the other half if you really want to? Or, and here's a novel thought, play to the referee's whistle. Ref Watch on Sky after the weekend is usually just Dermot Gallagher explaining why every single decision was correct after all. He had a face like thunder after he'd said that the body-check on Sarr in the lead up to the goal was not a foul and then Stephen Warnock said it was the oldest trick in the book to prevent Sarr making a forward run. Anyway, to avoid steering this thread off topic – the utterly predictable refereeing display yesterday sapped all enjoyment from the game. So often the game at Premier League level is just a relentless run of stoppages.
