Mike Dean At The Controls For QPR Clash

 Mike Dean At The Controls For QPR Clash

The Premier League have announced that Mike Dean will be at the controls for City's 55th and final game of a pulsating season...

Manchester City v Queens Park Rangers
Referee: M Dean
Assistants: S Burt, A Garratt
Fourth Official: N Swarbrick
Match Delegate: S Barker
PGMO: J Worrall


Sir Alex Ferguson has selected Howard Webb for the rags last stand at Sunderland.

Sunderland v Manchester United
Referee: H Webb
Assistants: P Kirkup, M Mullarkey
Fourth Official: M Halsey
Match Delegate: M Blackbourne
PGMO: D Laws

This season has been memorable where referees are concerned for all the wrong reasons and this article in itself is indicative of how much rests upon the appointed card flourisher, such is the unfortunate notoriety in 2012 that comes with making unfathomable decisions.

You won't find many Citizens of Planet Blue with bad words for Mr. Dean. Certainly not in this campaign. He's widely regarded in the game as one of the best men in the middle. He has reffed City on 4 occasions this season. All at home and all resounding wins:

City 4 - 0 Swansea
City 3 - 0 Stoke
City 3 - 0 Fulham
City 2 - 1 Chelsea

Dean's record this season is 42 games, 143 yellow and 4 red cards.

Meanwhile...

You won't find many Stretfords in the Home Counties with bad words for Mr. Webb, either...

So far this season he's looked after United 5 times, his Chelsea penalty double being noteable.

Utd 8 - 2 Arsenal
QPR 0 - 2 Utd
Newcastle 3 - 0 Utd
Chelsea 3 - 3 Utd
Blackburn 0 - 2 Utd

Webb's record this season is 46 games, 154 yellow and 5 red cards.

- For the record fellow conspiracy theorists, Webb has officiated 5 City games this season. The Blues have won 4 and drawn 1.

Actually Sajit, Mike Dean is one of the few refs that hasn't screwed us this season, and is to my mind one of the least error prone and most even handed officials there is. More worried about Coward Webb refereeing the rags TBH!

Think that's because slur alex puts the fear of god into all refs! How else do you think they keep scraping along?

they are all better than that waste of space attwell. i remember us playing wolves at home and wolves were kicking lumps out of us all game yet the final foul count stood something like wolves 5 city 21 (an abnormally large number for any game, let alone for a side that controls possession as much as we do)

Stuart Atwell. I presume the "Tw" is silent?

I left our 3-1 win over Wolves actually ANGRY because of Atwell. This wasn't simply a contentious refereeing performance, this was blatant one-sidedness playing out before our very eyes.

I was going mental at that game. The weirdest thing we saw on the TV later was that when he went off after each half Attwell looked really angry and fired up!
