Halsey’s Retrospective Premier League Table

Halsey’s Retrospective Premier League Table

This table is based on Mark Halsey’s view of which you can find out more on his Referee Ranking’s as well as on the You Are The Ref Academy where Mark writes his weekly Verdict.

We welcome all views and opinions, positive and negative of which you can do so here. However please remember this is purely fictional (hence the name) and nothing in this hypothetical table reflects the real game.

It is the sole view of Mark Halsey, and agree or disagree, the idea behind this table is to not only provide reflection on if’s and but’s, but also to provide some light-hearted conversation.

Key match incidents (KMI) are the basis of where match scorelines are altered. Using the Referee Rankings, the three main criteria that qualify as a KMI are:

  1. A goal either incorrectly allowed or disallowed.
  2. A penalty either awarded incorrectly or not given when it should have been. Penalties when awarded retrospectively are assumed as scored
  3. A player either sent off incorrectly or not sent off when he should have been. When red cards are issued or rescinded, depending on the balance of play and the minute the offence/or non offence takes place, Mark makes a decision on if the game result is affected.
