  1. Walter Broeckx says:

    Sending Shelvey off was a correct thing. But as Evans came in, in the same way he also should have been sent off.

    24 wrong decisions in one game is too much. The ref was poor in this game.

    Bias score much in favour of Manchester United

  2. Dogface says:

    Hi Walter – the fouls are not recorded for the penalty calls.

  3. Dogface says:

    Also an advantage call is recorde twice… I will look at the data behind this and correct it – user error.

  4. Dogface says:

    I’ve corrected the Advantage rows at 58 minutes – what was required was to call the foul as ‘Correct’ but the ‘Advantage’ as Not Correct as this should have been a ‘Direct Free Kick’.

    I can see what the reviewer meant as he documented it well in the comments – this is just down to experience.

    FYI (all reading) – this is the reason why we have seperate foul and punishment lines – i.e. a foul could be correct but the call to give either an advantage or a free kick might not be.

    Walter – can you add the missing foul rows to the review and re-publish?

    🙂

  5. Dogface says:

    There’s also two drop ball rows for the same offence – I’ll investigate that too.

    Reviewers – don’t be afraid to use the ‘Nothing’ call to avoid repeats in the data!

  6. Dogface says:

    OK – I’ve also fixed the Redcard when both players clattered into each other with reckless abandon.

    Reviewer:

    The fouls and Red card for the liverpool player were Correct calls
    You needed to ADD lines for the Not Given Foul and Red Card for the Manchester United player.

    You then needed to declare the resulting Free Kick as ‘Not Correct’ and state it should have been a drop ball.

    Referee’s are so holitic in their decision making – I know it’s not easy as you have to train your minds to react quickly on the field and this is part of it – but in the reviews you need to try and break it all down into seperate incidents.

    Thanks,

    PS – Walter… just add the foul rows now! 😉

  7. Florian says:

    Given Mr. Halsey’s track record one could have expected him to be less than accurate in this match, and that’s exactly what happened. It is also amazing that RVP is now the one that does the dangerous tackles onto the opponents – funny how the memory fades so quickly. I wish him a speedy encounter with Mr. Chiellini.

  8. Strus says:

    Why some correct decisions have weight more than 1 on this review?

  9. Walter Broeckx says:

    Will try to do the data update later today

  10. LRV says:

    Wow! I really admire you guys for your stellar efforts. I wish I could help in some way, but unfortunately, I know nothing about refereeing. Thank you guys.

  11. Geoff Alvis says:

    Howard Webb is biased for Manure Utd & always against Liverpool. The dickhead is a Scouse hater & we all know it.

    How can 2 players be sent off for the same challenge? Shelvey & Evans off for both teams? Who gets the free kick then? A bit stupid really!

    Geoff ‘Jonjo’ Alvis
