First time I have watched Mr Brooks ref. I know he has been rated quite highly. Tonight he strutted around. Made an awful lot of mistakes for fouls against both teams. Got goal kicks and corners wrong. For me he has a very long way to go before he is one of the better SG2ís let alone SG1.

John Brooks is one of the more personable young officials and not up himself at all. I have watched him referee a coupe of times and don't recall his movement about the pitch as strutting. I wonder how a referee struts? Perhaps he has changed his running style.

His promotion has been quite rapid and the warning of Attwell is always a salutary one. The fact is, the age profile of SG1 is getting quite old and like many European countries England is now trying to isolate the talent early and bring it on. Not dissimilar to Clattenburg and Oliver.
