The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Soccer -

That would be the one Sanchez Watt of Hemel Hemp­stead picked up in a Na­tional League South game hav­ing ini­tially got a yel­low for kick­ing the ball away. But then it got com­pli­cated.

“The ref asked for my name, so I said, ‘Watt’. He says, ‘come back, what’s your name?’ I said, ‘Watt!’. He said, ‘I’m gonna ask one more time, what’s your name?’. I said, ‘WATT!’. He goes, ‘that’s it!’ and took out the red card. I said, ‘what!?’.” When the mat­ter was cleared up? “The ref stood there look­ing lost and stupid, put the red back and gave me a yel­low.” Watt a palaver.
