Apparently FIFA are going to conduct trials at using two referees during matches to see if it improves the game. Apparently they tried it once before in Italy but the results were not great.
Whats everyones thoughts on this?
I suppose it is worth trying out, its going to be less obtrusive than stopping / starting to consult video replays, and might reduce some of the poor decisions we have seen so far. I can see it causing confusion though with one wanting to give a free kick and the other not, eg.
However the ref already has 2 linesmen (or "assistant referees"), perhaps these should be consulted more often rather than adding a 4th official on the pitch..?
