The secret life of today’s referee…

A considerable amount of research, involving all manner of clever internet searches, a hastily-hired private investigator and a slice of luck* has unearthed the ‘day job’ of today’s referee, Anthony Taylor – and I don’t think it will come as a massive surprise, given how he is clearly working on a fusion of his day job and the art of football refereeing, judging by his performance at the City Ground this afternoon.

* by these research methods, I of course meant a fairly quick Google image search for a picture (which was hastily used, with no adornment at all in the match report!), and some very amateurish Photoshopping.  The effect is quite sinister, being a clown it should be, but not that sinister!
