Referee of the Week: Paul Tierney #NORARS  Tierney received a 3.9/5 Match Performance Rating in this Fixture.

Matchday 14 Key Decision Approval Rating: 66%

8 of the 12 Key Decisions that were made in Matchday 14 were deemed correct in the eyes of the fans. 

Insight of the Week:

We Picked It! David Coote is renowned for blowing the whistle. URef predicted over 25 Fouls to be Issued in the Wolves V Sheffield Fixture - A whopping 30 Fouls were called by Coote and 6 Yellow Cards distributed.   

Bad Romance: Lee Mason & Bournemouth  Unsurprisingly, Bournemouth were defeated 3-2 away to Tottenham. Unsurprising because the man in the middle was Lee Mason… Bournemouth’s Premier League record under Mason is now: 12 Matches, 1 Win, 7 Losses, 4 Draws - 8% Win Rate. The Cherries will be praying for Paul Tierney (75% Win Rate with Tierney), next week. Spooky Stat of the Week: Jon Moss The King.. By some Margin Jon Moss is sitting pretty above all other PL Referees in terms of Key Decision Accuracy. Moss is operating at a KDA of 87%, which is 16% higher than the next best Referee, Paul Tierney (71%).
