Oi linesman, what are you, blind? Phil Sharp, of display graphics company Stylographics, should be more than used to such abuse being hurled at him, and probably a whole lot worse. Why?
At the weekend Sharp runs up and down a white line waving a flag about for no apparent reason in his incarnation as a Premiership assistant referee.
And now he has been selected to go to the World Cup Finals in Japan and Korea, the only British assistant referee to do so.
Phil, if you’re running the line at a Germany game, you know what to do.
