Yeah that was awful. Jim Joyce's comments after he rewatched it were pretty sad. He legit felt terrible. Just one of those things.
Armando Galaraga's Perfect game ruined due to Umpire Jim Joyce. Still the worst call I've ever seen in sports.
i dont care what anyone thinksEverton vs Villareal in the Champions League qualifier back in 2005.
The decision cost us £20million.
We needed to win the game 2-1 to go to extra time.
The game was 1-1 with 10 minutes left to play and Duncan Ferguson scores a perfectly good goal which would have taken us to extra time. The referee disallows the goal and due to us sending everybody forward to attack, Villareal score a 2nd in the last minute.
The goal is at the 2 minute mark of that video above.
He retired from being a ref earlier on, came out of retirement for this game and then resigned after the game.
Conspiracy theory time: England had 5 teams in the Champions League and UEFA didn't want that so they assigned a retired ref to screw us over.
