Seems the ref wants Sunshine to equalise, 7 mins of injury time so far and the game is still on....


ukwala,

Just saw the penalty save by Bonsu. The ref blew the call on that one. It should have been re-taken after Sunshine Stars scored from the rebound. Rangers escaped there. The referee whistled the player for encroachment and gave an indirect kick to Rangers. However, the replay shows that players from both teams encroached and thus the correct call should have been a re-take. Well, Rangers got the reprieve there.

EII, I've not seen it yet but if that be the case, it's possible the ref was trying to make amends for his mistake.

One of the great improvement in the league that is that the league table is looking more like league tables do. By that I mean the gap between the better teams and the poor teams is wide. There was as time when the gap was so thin because every team basically won at its home. This year, it is different. The better teams can go on longer unbeaten stretches and away wins are not as rare. This, IMHO, is an improvement. There are still complaints about bad officiating but those complaints appear to be lessening. I wonder if I am the only one who has noticed these things.

EII, correct observation and no, you are not the only one who has noticed the improvements. I wonder why though as I can't think of any specific initiative of the LMC. It could be due to the 2-group format but I am struggling to find the relationship!!
