Fresh ref for Derby clash - Referee
Friday, 5th Oct 2018 08:36 by Clive Whittingham
Bit of a rarity this weekend as we have a referee making his first ever appearance in a QPR game, this despite being on the Football League list for ten years.
Referee >>> David Webb (Durham), despite being a ten year veteran of the Football League this is his first appointment with QPR.
Assistants >>> Lee Venamore (Kent) and Dean Treleaven (West Sussex)
Fourth Official >>> Gavin Ward (Surrey)
First QPR appointment.
Fairly odd career path so far for this official. He’s been on the list since 2008/09 refereeing mostly League One and League Two, with a smattering of Championship games each season. It’s only this season that he’s become a mainstay of our division with seven of his ten games so far coming in the second tier. He’s shown 25 yellows and one red so far, topped out by six yellows at Wycombe v Oxford in League One. He’s had three cardless games out of ten so far. This is his second Derby appointment following their 2-0 home win against Preston at the end of August.
Last season he showed 94 yellows and three reds in 43 games, with four of those matches in the Championship. He was rewarded for his performance with the League Two play-off final between Coventry and Exeter City at Wembley.

A Dale Fan Abroad - Reflections on Burton Albion 1 Rochdale 2 by DaleAddict
Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
A Dale Fan Abroad - Introduction by DaleAddict
My 11-month old son is taking his afternoon nap. My wife is sunning herself on the balcony of our apartment in Salzburg, Austria. It’s the height of summer, but I have only got one thing on my mind; Burton Albion vs Rochdale.
A Hollywood script plays out in the Spotland sun by AtThePeake
It isn’t always easy being a Rochdale supporter. With the majority of the town’s footballing interest being soaked up by local behemoths Manchester City and Manchester United, the club’s attendances rarely break 3,000 home supporters.
Gylfi Not Irreplaceable- But Not Trying To Directly Replace Him Is Smart by BarneyLW
So the dust has finally settled. In what seemed like the most painstaking saga in living memory, Gylfi Sigurdsson is an Everton player. A man the club were silently resigned to eventually losing has moved on and like so often in the past, the club must plan for life without their star player.
Too many things for a title, but stop with the xenophobia accusations! by waynekerr55
I had planned to write this in a different fashion, but Bob Bradley's departure from the club changes a section of this blog. The conclusion was as expected. A seemingly good man and a tryer who simply wasn't up to the job. In short he should never have been given the job.
