  1. Florian says:

    Is it me, or there are 3 NC calls in the second period instead of 4?

    Otherwise, an unusually clean match from Mr. Foy, well above his standards. Not that the bias weren’t still there…

  2. Menace says:

    I was at the game and one incident on the LHS of the clock end box where the defender kicked the ball with his boot at head height with the Arsenal player trying to head the ball was in my view a penalty for dangerous play. It appeared to go unnoticed by everyone.
    There were several fouls on Carzola not given particularly the kicking of his heels and the physical bump/barge everytime he got the ball.

  3. Shakalula Gooner says:

    Thanks for the review.
    However, i notice that there is no summary wrap up at the end of the game anaysis and ref ratings. Why?
    The summary does a good job for us. It puts the ratings data into a qualitative perspective. If it will not be too much to ask, please include it.

  4. Walter Broeckx says:

    Shakalula Gooner,
    good remark. We try to let the numbers talk as much as possible. But as you say for some this might be not clear enough. We will have another look on this matter as it has been a bit of a talking point between the people involved

  5. Walter Broeckx says:

    Florian,

    I guess one code will be wrong coded. Will check it

    Thanks for noticing

    Just spotted it. The number code behind the scenes is correct. We gave a C instead of a NC in min 57. Will try to correct it

  6. Walter Broeckx says:

    Corrected!

  7. Dogface says:

    Walter – did you correct this in the article or the data set… should I regenerate these tables?

  8. Dogface says:

    with regards to:

    65 OTHER Diaby Larson NC Clear dive from the Sunderland player when sunderland lose the ball on their own penaly area 1

    What is this NC point for exactly if no penalty was given as the non-call was a Yellow in the next row?

    Is this he was correct to not give a penalty but not correct not to punish with a yellow – if so then the data should read C in Arsenal’s favour for this row..?

  9. Walter Broeckx says:

    It was just outside the penalty area from Sunderland. Larson dived to win a free kick as Sunderland lost the ball again. So there was no question of a penalty or so. The ref gave a foul against Diaby but as it was a clear dive it should have been a free kick for Arsenal (or let play continue)
    For a dive you should always give a yellow card. In fact it doesn’t matter if a players dives for a penalty or for a foul in the rest of the field: diving is cheating and cheaters are to be punished with a yellow card

  10. Dogface says:

    Then, to be logical, shouldn’t the players in the “From” and “To” columns be swapped over if the infringement was a dive against Diaby?

    Or could this raise a need for a FOUL type and an OTHER type (where Other is simulation and the like)

  11. Walter Broeckx says:

    As in first instance we judge the decisions of the ref we have to mention it as it was called by the ref and then give our judgement on the call from the ref.

  12. Dogface says:

    Updated for new data
