    When a ref in Belgium is 40 he is starting the last years in his careerr in the highes league and is considered to be very experienced. Most refs stop their active career around 45 years.

    Most refs start their careers in the highest league around 25-30 years so I think a big difference there.

    Rather than spend time on ref stats, you would be better employed on solving your domestic probs. You have more there than most managers in the EPL, IMO.
    And I’d watch that plumber, if I were you.

    Thanks nicky – you seem to be the expert on the subject, so why not write an article about it?

    dear mr. dogface
    i am a fan of the series, and am delighted with the stats and charts and the conclusions, just wondering whether you it was a conscious decision to represent tottenham with the colour of the inside of a rusted rotting slurry pipe? because if it was it only detracts from the excellent work you do keeping a beady eye on these pillagers.
    Also do we know if there are any refs in the epl that hail from our end of the north south divide? thatcher’s policies might have had longer reaching consequences than hitherto suspected.

    nicky.. I couldn’t help but notice that you stated:

    “Rather than spend time on ref stats, you would be better employed on solving your domestic probs. You have more there than most managers in the EPL, IMO.”

    Yet in the next article you write [of Avram Grant]

    “I feel sorry for the decent guy, Grant. A football manager must be among the most stressful jobs about. They have little control after the ref starts a game.”

    May I venture to say that your ‘O’ is worth sweet ‘FA’… Please let us know which team you support so we can scrape up some mud on your manager to fling back?

    Many thanks.

    On a side note – why do so many fans from other clubs come here? Is it a cry for help? Surely it’s not for an education is it!?

    @Uganda
    That’s not “rusted rotting slurry pipe”, it’s baby shit. Perfect colour.
