Ref Wiley to boss Chelsea v Fulham

last updated Friday 01st May 2009, 9:34 AM
Alan Wiley - Burntwood, Staffordshire.
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 becoming a fully-fledged top-flight ref.

Ref Wiley has been one of the better refs to look after Fulham in recent times unfortunately for him many of his games have been away fixtures. In his 23 officiations in Premiership games Fulham have won 7, drawn 5 and lost 11. 12 of his 23 games were away fixtures and, of course, we are not known for our courage on the road. Of the 12 away games Fulham have won one, drawn 2 and lost 9. That means of course that of the 11 home games we have won 6, drawn 3 and lost 2.

Ref Wiley has issued 63 yellows in the 23 games with 30 going to Fulham players. There have been just 3 red cards with only one going to a Fulham player, surprisingly a certain Mr Wome :-) Only one of our current squad has been carded by Mr Wiley and that lucky chap is Bobby Zamora.

Mr Wiley has bossed Fulham against Chelsea once back in April 2005 (match report).

Referee Stats - 2008/2009

Ref Wiley is blowing his whistle slightly more than his Premiership referee mates but when he whistles he is less likely to give a yellow card.

In fact so far this season he is less busier than in recent seasons.

Ref Wiley is also below average in terms of red cards and penalty decisions again this season. Someone must have spoken to him about penalties after the 06/07 season when he gave 13 penalties.

Ref Wiley is just a little less biased against away teams than his mates.

To be fair to him Fulham players have been carded less than home players in away fixtures.

02-03-2002 Premiership Fulham 0-2 Liverpool 5y 0r
Bookings: Boa Morte, Brevett, Legwinski (Fulham) Hyypia, Wright (Liverpool)
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.
