- Referee: Stuart Attwell

Good morning stat-fans and welcome to RefWatch… guess what – we now have an official release of data for referee appointments… (possibly due to the fact that we were all getting the data anyway, and cutting the official data flow just forced us fellow Ref-watchers to seek each other out, network and share our information) – although it’s not brilliant [the new release] as it’s done randomly as part of a news feed on the official EPL site in a ‘hard-to-leech’ format with efforts made to make it tedious to copy/record.
As inaccurate as it was at times, I’m going to miss the old RefWorld website and part of me feels a teeny bit responsible for its demise.
*one minutes silence*
Let’s have a look at the Referee:
- Full name: Stuart Steven Attwell

Sniff my thumb.
It’s Stuart Attwell again… you remember him from those two games we had last season:
West Bromwich Albion 2-2 Arsenal (2011-03-19)
Arsenal 4-1 Bolton Wanderers (2010-09-11)
Not bad I suppose; 4 points and a red card for Bolton – but not much more to say that that. I’d check out the RefReview to see how he did. In terms of ‘form’ in the realm of the ‘creative desicion making’ department; young master Attwell has a record as long as your arm – you can read all about it with a simple google… even Graham Poll was shocked!
Anyhoo – for what it’s worth – let’s check out his stats!
Stuart Attwell has had 2 games for Arsenal consisting of 1 win, 1 draw and 0 losses.
Arsenal are currently in 5th in Stuart Attwell’s personal Points Per Game League (for teams with a minimum of 2 matches played), for matches in the English Premier, with an average of 2.00 PPG.

Stuart Attwell has had 0 games for Swansea City consisting of 0 wins, 0 draws and 0 losses… so there is no graph or anything – sorry.
Let’s move on now to check out how Stuart Attwell performs against selected teams in the EPL:
So yeah – there you go and it doesn’t tell us much – we did ok last season in terms of the swing and points but we only have 2 games data.
I am aware that this post is thin and I was semi-tempted to bail out this week – so please, treat this as just a record of the officials and a place to comment on decisions during the match – be it controversial or otherwise. I spent a lot of Friday creating an all new graph for you readers pertaining to booking times and player positions – it was pretty sweet – but due to the lack of data for today’s match it’s going to have to wait for another day.
The Predictortron gives Arsenal a 1.500000 goal advantage… but that’s just our standard home win average – so I would ignore that. I reckon we are going to smash at least 3 more past them then they can score against us – enjoy the show!
Something for the weekend…
