Second Burnley game this season for referee Dean
Mike Dean is back at Turf Moor tomorrow for the visit of Manchester United and it’s his second Burnley game this season having previously taken charge of our home win against Newcastle United.
He had a decent enough game on that occasion which saw his RATE THE REF rating go up slightly. He remains in second place with a rating of 79.70 out of 100 with only Neil Swarbrick, who has refereed us just once, above him.
The 49-year-old Dean from Heswall on the Wirral, is the longest serving referee on the select group. He was one of 21 referees named when the select group was first created in 2001, alongside such as Paul Durkin, Dermot Gallagher and Graham Poll, and is the only one of that group still involved in refereeing today.
Of course, Wenger things honest referees are those that give incorrect decisions in his home team’s favour and no matter what Dean does tomorrow, no matter how many decisions might go against us, I believe, as do most people I would assume, he will carry out his duties with honesty.
That game was one of 18 he has refereed this season of which 15 have been in the Premier League and the other three in the cup competitions. In those games he’s issued 63 yellow cards and two red cards.
Of those yellow cards, 30 have gone to home team players and 33 to away team players. The first of the red cards was that of Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling, a second yellow for his celebration of his team’s winner at Bournemouth.
The other red card came in his last game, the dismissal of Leeds United’s Sami Saiz for spitting at an opponent in their FA Cup defeat at Newport. There were also three yellow cards in the game.
Mike Dean remains capable of still being one of the best referees we have. Let’s hope that’s what we see tomorrow.
The assistant referees are Simon Long (Cornwall) and Ian Hussin (Merseyside). The fourth official is Mike Jones (Chester) whose last Burnley game was December’s 1-0 home win against Stoke.
