I don't always agree with the referee because certain decisions are taken on impulse without any chance of a reply. Some players actually deceive referees into awarding soft fowls.

Listening was easy.
The referee'so job is very difficult because he doesn't have the benefit of replays for instant decision making and that could lead to errors being committed.

The listening is easy.
The referee's job is very difficult because the players and fans are ever pressing him and he can't make mistakes. Sometimes the players try fool him too.
A good referee must be athletic and impose respect.
Sometimes I don't agree with the referee, especially when he make a mistakes against my team.

Listening is easy.
I think that referee is very difficult job in football, because they has got many stress during the match.
I think that the good referee is required a strong fitness and good insight in match.
I always trying to understand a referee but sometimes i also used to boo to referee.

Think about context!

You are listening to a football match and you are not sure about a word. Is it allowed or aloud?

'No, it's offside! Wait! The goal has been ________! It's 1-0 to City.'
