Referees Announced For Weekend Fixtures – See Who’ll Be Officiating Your Team

By on September 16, 2013

We’re only four games into the new Premier League season and already we’ve seen a whole host of refereeing decisions called into question by managers, media and fans alike.

Just this weekend we saw Ian Holloway fuming at the decision to send Crystal Palace midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi off for an apparent foul on Ashley Young. The Manchester United winger was also at the center of yet another diving controversy after being booked for a blatant attempt to con the referee into awarding a penalty.

We also saw Sunderland boss Paolo Di Canio sent to the stands for remonstrating with referee Martin Atkinson after he ruled out Jose Altidore’s equaliser against Arsenal after blowing up for an earlier foul by Bacary Sagna. He compounded the home sides frustration by only showing the Gunners defender a yellow card.

These are just a selection of incidents that we fans argue about in the pubs after matches and supporters are now more interested than every to see who will be officiating games involving their team.

So here is a run-through of who’ll be overseeing proceedings for next weeks Premier League fixtures. I’m sure Manchester City fans will have something to say about who’s in charge of the Manchester Derby on Sunday!

Are you happy with the referee chosen to officiate your team? Share your views below.

    Suprise, Suprise, Webb gets the United match. United never needed Fergie and won’t miss him, all their success was based on the the FA ensuring that United will always get favorable officials. Its cheating and we all know it, but the media don’t cover it and the FA are a law unto themselves. Its been going on for years now, so don’t expect it to change anytime soon. United will keep on winning, that is if you consider winning by cheating winning and without shame. City will be robbed next weekend, just wait and watch Webb push the direction of the game to the favour of United..

    If you cann’t beat them join them…no other referee is better than Howard Webb for the last 4 years..this can be seen from the big games he officiates…… and if you say he supports man united that means he supported spain in 2010 and Inter millan in the champions league final

    Howard Webb shouldn’t be allow to officiate any game involving Manchester United b’cos fans across the globe see him as a Manchester United fan; not only Manchester United fan but also officiate in favour of Manchester United. I think I’m done

    Why are The FA’s so been Cheating by letting Howard Webb officiating Man united’s Match both star games or not? It’s getting boring bcoz Every Media and Football fans all over d World had know him of his Bad officiating esp Man united’s tough match. Solution should be taken so fast to avoid Ref’s Racist
