Video: Ref Phil Dowd tells Philipp Degen: ‘Not on my watch’

And people think refs are pompous prats for some reason…

You thought you could dive on Phil Dowd’s watch? Nobody dives on Phil Dowd’s watch, fool. Book ’em, Dowdo – or something like that.

Dowd seemingly took great pleasure in booking Liverpool’s Philipp Degen for misspelling his first name during last night’s FA Cup defeat to Reading. We probably shouldn’t expect refs to get no enjoyment at all out of football but it is quite peculiar which bits seem to turn them on!
