    It's a great way to point to the spot to be honest. His enthusiasm means you're never in doubt as to whether or not hes awarding a pen.

    I think he's hilarious. Give me an entertaining ref and I'll take it 10/10.

    That annoyed me, as he gave one against Smalling at St.James’ Park, but then I was seeing everyone get away with the same thing the following weeks.

    He has overtaken Atkinson as the ref I least want officiating a United game

    Do we know who's reffing the Liverpool match next week?

    Same here, not the greatest ref in the world but far from the worst either, loves a penalty too much (99 red cards is probably about right considering he's been reffing since about 2000) and he also has personality/ego for the big games, bit like Graham Poll a while back.

    Who does he actually support? He's from the Wirral so guessing one of Liverpool/Everton.

    Arsenal fans despise him btw, he's like Atkinson is when he refs your games, always giving penalties against them and they have a poor record when he refs their games.

    I was actually at that West Brom game when he gave that phantom handball against Chambers in 89th minute.

    He also literally celebrated Spurs scoring against us.

    That aside, he seems a self centred wanker who wants all the attention to be on him in big games.

    Him and John Moss are fighting for biggest cnut for me, the premier league might be the best league in the world but it must have the worst ref's in Europe. Really needs a massive clear out.

    To be fair I would hope every ref watches the games they managed

    According to the Sun (sorry, that was the only source I could find) it's Tranmere Rovers.

    All refs always say lower teams so it dosen't reduce their chances of taking charge of as many premier league games as possible.

    I assumed they avoided giving him any Liverpool or Everton games but seems he actually took charge of Merseyside derby not so long ago.

    I don’t know. Maybe we watch the premier league a lot more than the rest of European league that we think our refs are the worst. But that ref from the PSG game was far worse than any ref I seen in the premier league this season.

    That is true. That was bananas. I think the refs were absolutely horrible last season and the season before but they haven't been as bad this season.

    Mike Dean is so stereotypical its funny, he is just like that kid in school who didn't play football but wanted to join in so ran around pointing excessively like a lunatic.

    I love it when he makes sure he is the one making the decisions. Because it is like he is a step behind himself sometimes in that he sees the game, makes the decision then if he on second thought can verify for himself that he made the right decision he does something weird with his body language as to let everyone know he actually made the right call. Like the picture above. Like he is saying "Penalty, it is actually a penalty. I'm very sure. Look at how I'm standing, I wouldn't be standing like this looking stupid if I weren't sure, now would I?"
