"Don't you forget about me..."

Graham Poll really has been groomed for great things by Fifa, hasn't he?

After being given the privilege of refereeing Togo versus South Korea, the "Thing From Tring" has been handed the one must-must-must-see of the coming week: Saudi Arabia against the Ukraine.

No doubt the bookies are preparing themselves for a welter of bets on just how many times he will inevitably award a penalty, flourish a red card, wave his arms in the air like he just don't care, or whatever else it may take to guarantee his rightful place at the centre of attention.

Perhaps, just perhaps, though, the refereeing powers-that-be don't have quite such a lofty opinion of Graham Poll as, well, Graham Poll does.

He's surely the only referee in the country to have a chant dedicated to him.

Despite being completely childish and not all that witty, I can never resist joining in with 'Oh Graham Poll, is a f*cking a*sehole.'
