At times the Guardian really do put together some fantastic football articles. There's one on their website today about the referee Abraham Klein. I won't copy and paste the whole thing here as it's very long but it's well wroth a read.

Very good article. Loved this bit.

 

In a piece in the Times during Italia 90, the veteran football writer David Miller said Klein was "probably the best referee for the past 20 years". Alan Robinson, the overseas and services secretary of the English Referees' Association from 1968 to 2004, described him as "the master of the whistle". In the interests of balance, we must point out that not everybody concurred. Klein did not appear in Graham Poll's list of the 50 greatest referees of all time, a list that includes – and you'll like this – Graham Poll.

Graham Poll's list of the 50 greatest referees of all time

 

The very fact that he even made such a list, let alone put himself in it, shows just how much he craves to be the centre of attention for doing something that, when done properly, should go virtually unnoticed.
