I'm not sure about you, but I'm a big fan of the introduction of 'ref cam's in football and footage of the Class of 92 and friends' clash with Salford City, the Non League club that they own, only adds to my enjoyment of it.

National League North side Salford met Giggs, both Nevilles, Scholes Butt and co. in a friendly to mark the renaming of Moor Lane to 'The Peninsula Stadium', with an entertaining 4-4 draw ensuing.

It wasn't without controversy, though, as the legends side, who had the likes of Dwight Yorke, Jamie Carragher, Steve McManaman and Shay Given turning out for them, conceded a very soft penalty when Ammies striker Jack Redshaw went down under the challenge.

And through the ref cam, we have the pleasure of seeing and hearing the players fume at the referee for his decision. Of course, there's plenty of expletives but it really is gripping stuff...

The word 'friendly' doesn't mean anything to these chaps - they were absolute furious! "He stood on the ball" was the frequent cry from the visiting team's players. Former Morecambe striker Redshaw, in his second spell with the club, coolly slotted away the spot-kick.

Danny Webber, who played for Salford not too long ago, bagged a hat-trick for the visitors. Another highlight in the game was Jamie Carragher's atrocious piece of defending.

With his side 2-0 up and cruising, he completely gifted the opposite a goal with the sort of calamitous play he is used to analysing on Monday Night Football.

Carra was called out for his comical antics in his own box, but tried to make sense of what he was trying to do in the game - offering the following explanation:

We're not having it, Jamie mate.
