Attwell gets first Burnley game in over a year
Stuart Attwell will referee tonight’s home game against Liverpool, his first Burnley game since October last year when he refereed the 1-1 home draw against West Ham.
It’s almost wrong to refer now to his calamity games early in his career. There was a long run of them which cost him his place as a Select Group Referee, but he returned last season and certainly doesn’t court controversy in the way he did.
He’s generally been OK with us and is currently 8th in RATE THE REF with a rating of 68.20 out of 100; that rating dropped slightly following the West Ham game.
The assistant referees are Richard West and Derek Eaton. The fourth official is Mike Dean who refereed our recent game at Leicester and was also fourth official at Crystal Palace four days ago.
He’s refereed a total of 11 games this season in which there have been 36 yellow cards and just the one red card. Of those yellows, 20 have gone to home team players and 16 to away team players. The only player he has sent off was Manchester United goalkeeper Sergio Romero in their League Cup tie against Derby which Derby won 8-7 on penalties following a 2-2 draw.
Three of his last four games, including Liverpool’ s home game against Cardiff, have been cardless. That was the case for his last game, Manchester City’s 3-1 win against Bournemouth last Saturday.
