must retire NOW. I'm sorry, but for someone who was once considered to be the best referee in the world - (an opinion that I also held) - he had an absolute shocker tonight - bordering on the incompetent. He was dreadful. He obviously doesn't like big strikers. Everything Duncan Ferguson and Marcus Bent did got penalised. Everything. Right from the kick-off. And why was that goal disallowed. His performance tonight has massive ramifications for Everton Football Club. It will cost them millions. You can argue that Everton lost it in the first leg. An argument that I don't necessarily disagree with. But the whole point of playing two big strikers in the second leg was to cause the Villareal defence, especially their very unsteady goalkeeper, problems. Not once were the Everton strikeforce given the opportunity to put that plan in to practice. Indeed, even in commentary Collina was referred to as a "homey". I'm devasted. Everton didn't deserve that tonight. And, yes, I have a more than passing interest as I am married to a passionate and devoted Everton fan - but I do try to be objective - come on I'm a Palace fan . Just seen David Moyes interviewed - he was seething. Is the standard of refereeing - both in Europe and England - getting better or not? I think England has some of the best referees in the game. Collina WAS the best in the world. But now it's time for him to hang up his whistle.
