Jon Moss owns a record shop in Headingley called Vinyl Whistle but it will be the final whistle of the 2019/20 season that he blows at the end of tomorrow’s home game against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Tomorrow will see Moss referee us for a fifth time this season. He was in charge of our 2-1 defeat at Leicester and then followed that up with the home game against Manchester City and the away game at Old Trafford against Manchester United.

His performance at Old Trafford was praised but that was very definitely not the case when he last refereed us in the home draw against Spurs. After getting a severe talking to from the Spurs backroom staff as the players left for half time, he came out and turned in probably the worst 45 minutes of refereeing I’ve seen all season in the second half, highlighted by his nonsensical nine yellow cards and him amazingly missing the clear penalty when Chris Wood was barged by Davinson Sánchez.

That Spurs match was just before the season shut down and since he’s almost been on tour with Manchester United. He’s refereed six games since the resumption and three of them have been Manchester United games at Tottenham, Norwich and most recently Aston Villa although his most recent game was the Arsenal v Manchester City FA Cup semi-final in which there were no cards.

In 31 games this season he has handed out 99 yellow and three red cards. Of those yellows, fifty have gone to home team players and 49 to away team players. His most recent red card in the Premier League was back in September when he dismissed Arsenal’s Ainsley Maitland-Niles in their 3-2 home win against Aston Villa. Last month, he sent off Timm Klose of Norwich as they went out of the FA Cup against Manchester United.

One of the assistant referees tomorrow is Eddie Smart. He was with Moss in Manchester last season, firstly at the Etihad with that farce of a second City goal that should have been ruled out for the ball going out of play and David Silva being offside and Smart then allowed United’s late offside equaliser at Old Trafford against us.

Fourth official is Jeremy Simpson while Darren Bond will be at Stockley Park in charge of VAR. Both are Select Group 2 officials; Simpson hasn’t refereed a Burnley game, Bond was referee for our League Cup tie against Leeds in 2017 and turned in a shocking performance.
