Meet The Ref - Latics v Fulham - Lee Probert



Dodgy penalties, free kicks for two footed lunges not given, once again the Latics are appearing to be on the receiving end of some questionable refereeing, what we want is some firm but fair officiating by the men in the middle. On Saturday Fulham are in town and the man that we be relying on this Saturday to give us a decent crack of the whip is Gloucestershire referee, Lee Probert.

The 39 year old official was in charge of just two Latics games last season, both were away and both ended in 3-1 defeat's, away at Wolves back in early November, during that game there was the infamous Alcaraz spit, which Probert missed, but the cameras didn't, the Latics defender ended up with a retrospective three match ban. The other game was at White Hart Lane at the end of January, a game that we lost but we didn't half kick-on from

Probert first got interested in refereeing at the tender age of 16, he sat the exam and the rest, as they say, is history. He has now been refing in the Premier League since 2007

No comment on ref's, they are all bad, especially when you dont win!
worbo
Ye i agree with what you say worbo but would you day that they are intimidated at old Trafford to not give to correct decision for the away team
BlueGoose
Intimidated, swayed, influenced, most definitely, we would never have been awarded that penalty, Im 100% confident of that
worbo
It's up to us to make the DW an intimidating place for referees.
