I think allegations of bias are a little harsh, but he certainly seemed to have a certain amount of favour in his decisions for the home team. Portugal were more likely to "win" a foul than those in an England shirt, and that was throughout the game.lynchie said:I think that's probably a bit harsh... of what I saw of the match he seemed like a perfectly good referee. Maybe once England fans stop looking for scapegoats they will be able to see their own team's inadequecies... You lot are worse than the Italians!
I don't think he had a predetermined bais towards Portugal, although maybe his decisions would suggest otherwise. I think he was swayed by the same forces that seem to prevent ManU conceding penalties at Old TraffordWell Worth It said:
