Graham Poll books the same player three times
When David Beckham et al failed to show England in a positive light at the 2006 World Cup, that responsibility fell to, er, Graham Poll.
With some top notch decision making, England's 'best' referee would prove to the world the English weren't entirely clueless when it came to the beautiful game.

Poll looked like an idiot and the 'World Cup circus' that was 2006 had found its clown.
