Probably wearing cherry tinted spectacles....to be honest, thought he was a decent referee for the Championship....tried to let game flow when he could...showed the card when he had to and seemed to work well with linesmen...we will have a lot worse than him before season is out...think Tindall is in for a rude awakening if he thinks that was bad...
If we were confident that Maddison could slot into the dressing room without being disruptful and his wages were sensible I don't see a problem in signing him.
He might not be good enough for this level but who knows he might flourish at a bigger club with better players around him.
The other side of that is many clubs must have done their homework and the fact that no one is signing him is a worry.
Maybe he's just asking for stupid money and there's nothing more to it than that 🤷♂️
