Alan Wiley - Burntwood
Referee Alan WileyNot only is Alan Wiley a referee, but is also a part-time policeman which should endear him to the Premiership League crowds. Making his Premiership debut in the 2000/01 season, Wiley kept a low profile and avoided any controversial decisions.

He worked his way up the through local leagues to the Football League in 1991, joined the Premiership League list as a linesman in 1994 before, one year later, becoming a fully-fledged top-flight ref.

Ref Wiley has been one of the better refs to look after Fulham in recent times unfortunately he has not been a lucky ref for Fulham as in his 16 officiations in Premiership games Fulham have won 5, drawn 4 and lost 7. To be fair 9 of his 15 games were away fixtures and we are not known for our courage on the road. Of the 9 away games Fulham have won one, drawn 3 and lost 5.

Interestingly the first Fulham player Ref Wiley yellow carded was Chris Coleman in 1998 in a Division 3 game when The Cottagers were beginnings their rocket assisted rise to the Premiership.

Referee Stats - 2005/2006

As last season Ref Wiley is blowing his whistle pretty much as often as his Premiership referee mates. However when he whistles he is slightly less likely to give a yellow card.Ref Wiley is also an average red card penalty giver. Overall a fairly competent sort of ref who avoids controversy.

Fulham thought they should have been awarded a penalty two minutes after the interval when Luis Boa Morte went down under a challenge from Xavier. But instead of pointing to the spot, referee Wiley booked the Portuguese international for diving, to the fury of the home fans. At the time it seemed a poor decision as Xavier had been leaning on Boa Morte with his left arm. With the aid of t.v. footage it was clear that a penalty should have been given but Wiley choose to let the decision stand rather than withdraw the caution.
