Shocked at Halsey's ratio of 1.5 yellow cards per game and only three reds in 40 games. I still think he's rubbish and makes some awful decisions.

Back where you belong ? I have no axe to grind with Leeds but the past is past. There are no 'where you belongs around here' . Good luck to all teams in the playoffs.

I think Halsey is rubbish and cant understand why hes such a high profile referee. Hes an acknowledged homer so lets hope for some good luck (bette rthan against Huddersfield anyway)

Having watched the ref in the Chelsea v Barca game anybody looks good compared to him...what a wally. I started off wanting Braca to win for a different final but was gutted when they score with their only shot.
