  1. Lanz says:

    Nice analyses. It seems to me a new site and hopefully one to visit regularly. Kudos.

  2. Kentetsu says:

    Minute 71, foul of Shawcross on Giroud is marked C with comment “shove, not given”, therefore it should be marked NC.

  3. Strus says:

    58 PENALTY Gibbs Pennant NC Shoved, not given should have weight 3

    Stoke should have weighted 3 incorrect decisions in period 2

  4. Dogface says:

    Walter – I hope you are taking all these comments on board and investigating?

    Make sure you update the dataset and send it to me if anything changes!!

  5. Tim says:

    Laudable idea for a project, however, isn’t having Walter (who writes for Untold Arsenal and for his Dutch Gooner Fanzine) re-refereeing matches post-facto sort of like having Sheikh Mansour as auditor of FFP?

    I think the very first rule of this site should be that a fan of a club should not be allowed to judge that club’s matches. Just the same way that we wouldn’t want Howard Webb refereeing an Arsenal v. Reading match if it were found out that he had been writing at Untold Reading for the last three years.

    • Dogface says:

      Hi Tim,

      We have put requests out on all the major fan sites for referee’s and also through some other external referee based contacts – neither are affiliated with Arsenal. We are having a good response and, yes, no referee who supports a certain team will review a match for them.

      Walter does not amend the data, he is a point of contact – it is, as you can see, open source and can be questioned on a call-by-call basis by anyone. We encourage this.

      The data is then passed to me to compile and generate these articles – sometimes Walter adds a comment, sometimes not. We are looking to automate that side of things too.

      The referee’s identity is protected as the environment can be a bit of an ‘old boys club’ – this is for the freedom and protection of the referee in that he can be honest in his judgement without fear of repercussions from his/her authority… we have heard some shocking stories about the internal politics of these bodies.

      Hope this helps.

  6. Dogface says:

    Updated for new data… Oh dear Mr. Mason – oh dear.
