9 Responses to Match Review: Kevin Friend – Reading Vs Stoke City (1 – 1) [18/08/2012]

  1. Walter Broeckx says:

    A not that good first half from the ref who seemed to improve himself in the second half.
    all in all a good final competency result from this ref.

    You can also see that in the bias numbers. In the second half almost no mistakes and nicely spread between the teams. But in the first half the bias was more against Reading. The final bias score is thus largely in favour of Stoke in this game.

  2. Andrew Crawshaw says:

    Walter, Dogface and reviewers,
    Wow, I wasn’t sure how you could have improved on last season. I now know – more of the same. Well done!
    Keep this up and you will shame the PMGOL into action to improve standards.
    One minor presentational point, I have just looked at the first four reviews on my (early) iPhone and find the grey text a little difficult to read, could you have a look at changing either the text colour or font to make it easier on my eyes.

  3. Strus says:

    Why the incident on 85th minute has weight 2 insted of 1?
    This site is going to be great.

  4. Walter Broeckx says:

    Thanks Strus, we will change that in the database as this was a mistake

    Yep,
    I’m planning to have a look in the next days to check if all the codes are 100% correct and then will update the file to you

  7. Johnny Deigh says:

    Wow! Stoke committed 32 fouls in this match. That’s a lot.

  8. Dogface says:

    Updated for the new data.
