Lets hope we are not calling him Master Bates by the end of the game!

This guy is a bit of a bottler who is influenced by the crowd. He is the one who incorrecly sent off Alan Thompson at Southampton is a crucial game for Leeds. The card was later recinded but we lost the game. His booking of Watt against Forest was a cop out to avoid sending a Forest player off for a blantant stamp. Not a ref you want away from home.

I remember that erni, Gunter should have walked and we would have probably gone on to win the game.
