Not many NC decisions in this game by the ref. And so he did get a very high score in total. In this game the second half was even better than the first half.  Leaving him with a high score of just under 90%.

The ref was a bit reluctant to get his yellow cards out at first and this cost him some points. For the rest mostly spot on with most of the decisions.

A new pattern is rising in the ref reviews the last games. The fact that Manchester City is more and more on the wrong end of the wrong decisions is something that could raise some eyebrows. I will be trying to keep an eye on this and analyse it further in the next days or weeks. It could be a coincidence of course but well when it is a pattern I don’t believe that much in coincidence.

But I must admit that if the ref would have been out to get Manchester City he could have done it by blowing a ridiculous penalty but he didn’t go that way.  But after all Atkinson is not really the ref to do Manchester United any favours, ain’t it SAF?
