Dan Gosling complaining about Jon Moss is laughable, petty and pathetic.
I actually laughed when I heard what Moss was supposed to have said. This sort of thing happens all the time with referees!
When I played I remember Roger Milford and little Paul Durkin being the best. You could have a laugh with them and you would want them to ref your games.
Roger used to say to me: “Don’t complain to me just because you’re having a sh*t game Merse!” when I had a go at him.
And you couldn’t argue with him – because he was right! He made me laugh. You need to be able to laugh at yourself sometimes.
Trust me, you only ever have a go at the ref for one reason. If you’re having a stinker. You never say a word to him if you’re having a good game.
That should tell you everything about what’s happened with Gosling and Moss.
Bournemouth have lost the game 2-1 at Sheffield United and they’re frustrated because they’re in a relegation fight.
But come on. It’s not the referee’s fault. Gosling must be sitting there now thinking: “What have I done?”
It’s a big deal calling a referee a disgrace. That’s a big word to use. I’m surprised the FA haven’t charged him because you can’t say anything about refs any more.
I can’t make a case for what Gosling said. It just looks petty. It makes him look like a millionaire footballer stuck in his own little bubble.
It’s like he’s saying: “You can’t make fun of me, I play in the Premier League!” It’s a bit cringeworthy isn’t it?
Jon Moss came under fire from Bournemouth
Gosling says Moss told him “you’re still in the relegation zone” and “you’re having one” – I actually laughed out loud when I read that. If that’s what he said, it’s quite funny.
I can’t believe Gosling has complained about this. I mean, wow. There’s no way that ref is saying those things for no reason.
He’s obviously responding to something, probably…
