2 : Matchweek 4 Summary

This week there were 16 wrong Important Decisions (second yellow cards, red cards, penalties and goals).  They were split almost exactly evenly between the four categories.  Worryingly there were 5 wrong decisions over goals which is the one category where there really shouldn’t be any excuse for errors and the main reason why we must all keep up the pressure for the urgent introduction of video refereeing.

Referees of the Week (with no wrong Important Decisions) – Anthony Taylor and Jon Moss, there is an argument that Mark Clattenberg should have Referee of the Week for three correct Important Decisions but, as he also made three wrong decisions he cannot be considered

Worst Referee of the week with four wrong Important Decisions – Michael Oliver but honourable mentions go as well to Lee Mason with three wrong decisions.  Mark Clattenberg also had three but he also had three correct decisions to counterbalance those he got wrong.

3 : Games where the referee arguably affected the result of the game

For the first time this season – None

4 : Lucky players who should have been sent off but weren’t

  • Straight red cards (should be missing the next three games) – Ivanovic (Chelsea), Januzaj (Sunderland) NB – he was given a second yellow card for this incident and sent off but in our opinion it should have been a straight red card with a three match ban, poor from Mr Dean, Djilobodji (Sunderland),
  • Yellow cards (should be missing the next match) – Fellaini (Man United), Pogba (Man United), Britos (Watford), Ayala (
  • Villain of the WeekIvanovic (Chelsea) for his triple stamp on Lallana the third after Lallana had protested to the referee after the first two.

9: Major Wrong Decisions Against Teams

This table is sorted so that the teams with the most wrong decisions are at the top and those with the least are at the bottom.

Sunderland and Burnley have still to have a wrong Important Decision against them, unfortunately Arsenal are still occupying our customary position at the top of the table but it is important to note that had the referees been working to their level of performance from last year we could have expected to have 15 wrong decisions against us in 5 games so for those who think you have noticed an improvement in refereeing for Arsenal matches your eyes haven’t been deceiving you!

10: Major Wrong Decisions in Favour of Teams

This is the converse of the table in section 9 and shows where the largesse of the PGMO has fallen.

Man United have now leapfrogged Leicester and Chelsea to the top of this table, largely due to the continued ability of their players to commit fouls and exhibit dissent without being punished, clearly the ‘moaning one’ is being thrown crumbs of comfort by the PGMO.

11: Possible Change in Points Week-by-Week Due To Wrong Major Decisions

With no changes being made this week, Middlesbrough remain the worst hit by poor refereeing, they should be five points better off than they are, Palace represent the other end of the spectrum and should be three points worse off than they are.  Every other team is within two points of their correct total

  • bushido

    thanks @the Referee team for another info/update about about last week referees performance. keep up the good work’ (much appreciated guys)

  • bushido

    sorry, match week#5 and #4

  • Rich

    Harder to check now they’ve removed ref details from prem website, but worth noting that both Madley and East had a week off after the Saints and Hull games respectively.

    Madley was back after a week and East may be back for the weekend but, though we’re not talking Mason punishment, it does fit with the pattern of refs being given time outs when they rule in our favour.

  • Usama Zaka

    Rich,

    Matchday 05 Madley was only working as 4th official in 1/2 games. He was then in charge of Leicester-Chelsea match midweek in league cup. Sort of a lighter schedule for the ref…. maybe

  • para

    Keep up the good work.

    Sooner than later these reports will spread and become a stopping point for visitors to Untold, not just Arsenal supporters as they see that there is no bias in the reports.
    This will trigger it to be talked about and then things will change, have already started to change. 🙂

  • Robido

    This is a great resource for those of us who wish to back up our discussions with evidence. It will no doubt get the wider recognition it is worthy of. Hopefully the referees will not wilt into their time honoured English view of the dark side AFC largely refuse to embrace. One thing very difficult to take into account but we can bear in mind is the knock on effect of a missed second red when the team has to go without their key player for a few games (although it may sometimes appear to be a blessing in disguise).

  • bjtgooner

    An excellent piece of work – it should build up into a very valuable reference. Already a number of referees are showing themselves as unfit for purpose.

    It is also interesting that the Manures have been, once again, benefiting from wrong major decisions!
