By Ref Reviewer 02

For the game between Wolverhampton and Chelsea we had ref Peter Walton. The crowd didn’t like his performance but how did our ref reviewer rated his performance?

A supplemental note from myself is that when you come at the bottom of the ref review you will see that I have tried to bring some change to the additional ratings of the ref. I will not bore you with the details behind this change but believe me it is only to allow us to stick our nose even deeper in whatever mud we can find about the refs.

“The Premier League is full of Shit”, sing the Wolves fans.

This was an astonishingly bad performance from Peter Walton, the first half was spoilt by his dereliction of duty, he was so biased to Chelsea it was an embarrassment to the laws of the game. in the second half he seemed determined to make up for the amount of bad calls against Wolves in the first half, and swung the other way, but not to the extent that he favoured Chelsea.

The decision not to red Card Lampard was wrong; he has justified full frontal, stud showing tackles that miss the ball and crash into the opponents shins to all who play the game. He not only let himself down he let every Ref in the country down with his cowardice. How Cashley Tweedy was not cautioned in the first half was equally baffling, there were two easy yellows but being an England International saves you many a yellow card. Tweedy was much restrained in the second half, someone had a word in his ear I guess.

The decision to caution Henry was wrong, the decision to caution Doyle could be justified, but not in the context of what Chelsea players were getting away with. Doyle did throw the ball at Tweedy, but in a manner that was to pass it to him, there was no aggression. The decision not to caution Jarvis I thought was apologetic, for all he done wrong to Wolves prior to the Jarvis foul.

It may not look like it but I have been generous to Walton, there were two other cautions that I have gone with him on, the Foul by Steedman on 4 and Tweedy on 28 were also cautionable, but I gave Walton the benefit of interpretation.

All in all a bad day for Walton, a bad day for Refs, a bad for the EPL and a bad day for the paying public, who broke into a chorus of “THE PREMIER LEAGUE IS FULL OF SHIT” on more than one occasion.

Aditional remarks about the new format at the end. I was hoping it would be mud we had to stick our nose in but apparently it is shit. Oh well, sticking in is what we will do.

With this model we should be able to make a difference between what we could consider not that important wrong decisions (all wrong decisions are important in fact!) and the more important one in a second. If you see e.g. NC FA WOL 1= Not Correct in Favour of Wolves counting for 1 in the weight scale. NC FA WOL 2= Not Correct in Favour of Wolves counting for 2 in the weight scale (yellow cards) NC FA WOL 3= Not Correct in Favour of Wolves counting for 3 in the weight scale (red/penalty/goal). Obviously if you see CHE somewhere this means Chelsea.

In this case we can see that the normal mistakes are nicely divided at the end of the game with 50% going against each team. This is the normal fouls somewhere in the middle of the field. But when we look at the important decisions we see that Chelsea was getting a lot from the ref. 66.67% of those important (yellow/red/penalties/goals) went in favour of Chelsea and thus 33.33% only went in favour of Wolves.

And if we take all the wrong calls together this means that Chelsea had a benefit against Wolves.

And all this can be seen divided over both halves also. So you can see that the ref was in love with Chelsea in the first half when it came to wrong calls but changed it around a bit in the second half.

So a change at the end of the reviews. Hope you like it. If not let us know. Now Dogface, where do I have to put my nose in? In that? No you can’t be serious? Oh, you are… okay…wish me luck….. 😉

  • WalterBroeckx

    As this ref reviews is a bit my own baby I feel very proud about the way we have walked since then.

    I just want to thank everybody who has been helpful in any way to make them better. By adding your comments you have given my new ideas and new insights.

    Nothing in this world is perfect but the way things have and still are developing I think we are getting very near to what we should have to say that we have an instrument in our hands that can be considered as almost perfect.

    Nobody can raise a child on his own and turn it in to an adult. So thanks again for everyone that has helped me so far and who are still helping me now and in the future to raise this little baby that looked like this http://blog.emiratesstadium.info/archives/7118 and that has now grown in to something like you see above.

  • Tasos

    Yet another interesting review. Keep it going.

    Peter Walton is a seriously incompetent Referee. I believe his lack of authority on the pitch allows the players license to get away with far too much. His failure to control this game almost cost a player another serious injury. Frank Lampard’s reckless tackle should have resulted in a straight red card and Adam Hammill can consider himself fortunate to escape such a challenge without injury.

    If we are to believe the EPL have a panel of referee assessors in the stands at every match, then I have to question their competence in allowing Mr Walton remains an EPL referee.

  • RedGooner

    Interesting Walter to see that while the PGMOL was making sure Arsenal didnt win one game they were also making sure Chelsea didnt win the other.
    I think we should do weekly Ref reviews on who we are battiling with for 4th place for the remainder of the season.

  • RedGooner

    Sorry should have been
    Interesting Walter to see that while the PGMOL was making sure Arsenal didnt win one game they were also making sure Chelsea didnt loose the other.

  • Mandy dodd

    Maybe lampard has told them he will not go to the Europeans this summer if he gets any red cards, he would not be the first to do that!

  • Johnny Deigh

    Utterly amazing that Ashley Cole didn’t get booked as well as Lampard escaping with only a yellow.

    Once Chelsea scored the ref seemed to ease off Wolves, at least until Wolves equalised.

  • Ugandan Goon

    Thanks for the review, ref reviewer 2.
    Scary thought: walton is pretty shit, but here is the rub, he is not the worst of them, out of 18 noly about four are capable of reffing a match properly!(if they got special permissions from on high to do so)

  • Reviewer 02

    @Johnny Deigh

    That is exactly as i saw it, Walton was utterly biased until Chelsea scored, then he started giving Wolves decisions. It was quite blatant, but the Wolves crowd saw through it.

  • Gooner Gal

    This is one of the ref reviews I have been waiting for as the Lampard tackle looked bad when I saw it, but worse on the replay. It was sickeningly reminiscent of Ramsey’s leg break and the only thing that saved the Wolves player to me was the rain and poor pitch. It looked like a straight red card and Wolves have every right to be angry especially since Lampard was able score the winning goal which made the situation worse.

    I also noted that John Terry and Cashley were jeered as passionately as they would of been at the Emirates. Both players were sloppy and given the benefit of the doubt too many times by the ref which riled up the Wolves players. The referee looked totally out of depth and not in control of the game which showed throughout the match and in the way the cards were eventually handed out.

    I only watched the match because it was Frimpong’s debut and the only good thing about the game was that he did well even though he was thrown in at the deep end. Mick Mccarthy made too many changes which led to a nervous and unsettled team in the opening minutes of the game. The Wolves fans cheered Frimpong off the pitch and seem very excited to have him on loan. Frimpong should of been on the winning side as I think they could of beaten a 10 man Chelsea, if the rules of the game had been applied properly.

    Wolves were at home, but like Arsenal didn’t recieve any advantages. In the end it was an all far too familiar example of a poor referee determining the outcome of the game.

  • Johnny Deigh

    Walton lost control of the match by letting bad tackles go unpunished. There’s no excuse for it. Then he had to start handing out cards but then he was biased for giving them to the Wolves players. Like when Cashley kicked Doyle in the stomach and the ref gives Doyle a card for getting up and throwing the ball into Cashley. Doyle deserved his card, but Cashley deserved a card even more.

  • Mandy Dodd

    The Premier League is full of shit – well done the Wolves fans, maybe we should take up that chant when we get these refs. It would be broadcast around the world

  • rusty

    Walter, please bring back the summary stats tables from the previous iteration of the ref review format! (not as a replacement for the new ones necessarily, but as a supplement) I just feel like it’s hard to get a ‘headline’ number now to allow skimming…
