Just been reading that the referee for the England v Holland semi final has been banned before for taking bribes and is being allowed to referee a massive game. This is beyond belief.

Does this not highlight how FIFA and UEFA protect their own and gives credence to the claims and allegations of some Premier League referees by English supporters?

How can this be allowed to happen? If this man has been found guilty of accepting bribes, he should be no where near a football pitch even at youth level.

It is equal to what Sepp Blatter and Michel Platini did. It does not matter how much was involved, it is a crime.

Apparently it was 20 years ago, so everythings ok. Nothing to see hear just like everything that's wrong with sport these days.

And just to add the cherry on the cake he has previous with Bellingham after Bellingham accused him of fixing Bayern v Dortmund in 2021 (Bellingham was fined and there was no evidence of fixing, unlike in 2005 when Zwayer was given a 6 month ban) .

I agree, he shouldn't;t be allowed to referee at any level anymore.

Getting caught once should be enough. Lifetime ban.

Football is getting worse by the hour, it seems.

A crime? Does anyone know the full story or are you meddling kids just jumping to conclusions?

Anyway, it might work in our favour given the history between the Germans and the Dutch and it may get TAA off the hook if we lose.

Reckon he'll still do a better job than any English official.

Football has always been corrupt. Some of the refereeing in European games during the 60s and 70s was disgusting. It just wasn’t televised.

AlFred, it does not matter how long ago it was since this person took a bribe on a football match he took it and he is allowed to referee games how can he be trusted how can teams trust him sorry mate but there is something to see here .

Is the implicit suggestion that the match is fixed and England can’t win? Just want to be clear here.

What people are missing is that Zwayer went to expose the match fixing. He took some money from the referee but Zwayer reported him and that's why he was only banned for six months.
You could say that the ref for tonight's game was the whistleblower for match fixing.

@Something Red if we need to bring back a ref. who was banned 20 years ago for match fixing to replace the "more than competent" Anthony Taylor then we are really i n the mud, officiating-wise.

I think both English refs have done really well.

I did a lot of daft stuff 20 years ago but I have changed since then.
I do a lot less now.

{Ed025's Note - im still doing it Rigsby.. :)
