Summary
It was a long journey for Howard Webb to get to the World Cup final in 2010, the pinnacle for any referee. His first game as a match official came when he was just 18 as he took charge of an under-11s fixture in South Yorkshire. Watching on was his father, himself a referee for 35 years, and his verdict on Webb's first game was blunt. He was soon progressing through the ranks, and by 2003 at the age of 32 he had risen to take charge of Premier League games. His natural calm authority made a quick impression on players and administrators alike, and soon he was being offered the top matches and the toughest fixtures. Now, in this memoir, he reveals what it is like to be at the heart of the action in the modern-day game where every decision can be unpicked by television cameras with the benefit of different angles and slow-motion replays
