Collina without a doubt. He takes no sh!t from no-one and didn't hesitate in the WC final to book 2 players in the first 10 mins that takes some balls most referees would overlook it and just award a free kick but he didn't. He is the best even if he looks remarkably like John Rowbotham. :howler: :D

Collina by light years. I also rate Dallas rather highly, unlike most.

I also voted for Collina. He is the top ref, and I hope that FIFA will bend the rules a bit, so he can officiate in WC 2006.

Beefy I'm not obsessed but if you have seen Rowbotham you would know what I mean. Deniz, Collina has a snowball's chance in hell of FIFA bending the rules, even if he is the best. Mutu who doesn't rate Dallas highly?

I voted for Collina too. In my book, he is simply the best referee not only in Europe, but also in the whole wide world ;).
