One Response to Match Review: Howard Webb – Reading Vs Tottenham Hotspur (1 – 3) [16/09/2012]

  1. Gerry Lennon says:

    Howard Webb is consistent in one respect, he has one bad half, and one good half. This was clearly not one of his better days at spotting fouls? To miss 1 out of 3 commited by Reading, and 4 out 5 by Spurs, on what appears a pretty easy game with only 24 fouls commited – speaking only as a non-visual observer – does not look good? Not to mention the penalty decision going against Reading. Then the %age of fouls commited by Spurs being higher, yet a lower %age being correct, but noticably the gap narrows on the incorrect columns? I guess the biasometer needle fell on the Spurs side, and thus negating the ‘normal’ away bias?
    I must say it was easier to read the old method, so please correct me if I am wrong in these conclusions?
