As someone asked me to give a more complete picture of the refs so far this season I will be happy to provide this.
If we only take the league games we get the following refs and results. Because for some strange reason the refs do a better job in the cup games than in the league games as can be seen in my reviews and the scores of the refs so far.
So in this table you can see the same names coming back when it comes to positive results. Jones, Clattenburg and Foy are the refs we get the best results with if we only look at refs whom we had 3 times this season. With them we won all our games. And Clattenburg was the ref we had away at Man City and at home against Chelsea. So not the easiest games to win.
The one negative in refs with 3 games is Dowd. We couldn’t win one game when he was in control. Not even in the cup.
If we look at two games we see on the positive side Walton and on the negative side Dean.
To make it a bit complete I also made a table in which you can see how we did with the refs in all the games so far.
And again the same names come forward both in the positive sense and in the negative sense.
On the positive side we have Clattenburg with whom we have won all our games. I hope this doesn’t bring him into disrepute. Foy is also favourable for our results. Despite our defeat at Old Trafford.
On the negative side we have Dowd under whom we can’t seem to win a game. A negative record which even Dean doesn’t share. Because we could win at Leeds under Dean even though he did try to help Leeds a bit in that game.
One ref I didn’t mention as he only had one game is ref Oliver. But ref Oliver who did our last home game against WBA had a great game and was in no means responsible for our defeat. So I did not name him with the negative refs. Because losing a game is not enough to get in my bad ref book, you also need to show a bit of bias.
