Others managers seem to be able to refuse to have certain refs in charge of their games. We seem to get the same ones again and again.
Interestingly, last season we had:
Webb - 6 times (W2,L4)
Atkinson - 5 times (W2,D1,L2)
Dowd - 5 times (W3,D1,L1)
Probert - 4 times (W3,L1)
Halsey - 4 times (W1,D1,L2)
Walton & Marriner - 3 times (both W1,D1,L1)
Friend - 3 times (W2,D1)
and others twice or less. Guessing it's because we're on TV a lot and hence have the more well-known refs. The season before paints a very similar picture. I'd like to see how other teams' breakdown compares....
