Today’s referee is Kevin Friend – This review can also bring some perspective to our goalless draw this week as one of our competitors for the 4th spot went under at Bolton. But we are here to read about the ref.

This was new to The reviewing system, the first half was done by myself 02 and the second half by 03. I had the easy half; it was a poor half of football with nothing to report other than 3 goals. The second half things appear to have hotted up a bit, and Friend made more errors. This is consistent with a number of reviews we have done this year, good first half’s and poor second half’s for the Refs. I Know from experience that second half’s are often harder to manage than first half’s, tempers become frayed, players become frustrated as the game runs away from them, or they are more determined to defend their quarter regardless of outcome.
Anyway bottom line is, when the game got tetchy, Friend did as he always did, and responded poorly.

Like our reviewers said the first half still ok but the second half his score dropped.

If we look at the wrong calls it was clear to see that for the first time since a long time Liverpool was on the wrong end of things. Maybe Dalglish will have to go back to Mike Riley once again like he did at the start of the season?
