Newcastle United v Liverpool (24/11/2007) - Meet the Referee

Thursday, 22nd November 2007
Alan Wiley of Staffordshire will take charge our next Premiership match as travel to the North East to face Newcastle United. The 47-year old is one of three policemen refereeing in the top flight and has been walking the beat in The Premiership for seven seasons. He started refereeing back in 1981 through the West Midlands Regional League and became a Football League linesman ten years later. In 1994 he was promoted to run the line in The Premiership. He was then given the whistle in The Football League twelve months later. He has just started to gain European experience and was a fourth official to Graham Poll in a Champions League qualifier last season. This will be his 28th match overall involving Liverpool match as a referee and our record reads 15 wins, 8 losses and 4 draws. He has refereed Liverpool once this season, it was our 6-0 hammering of Derby County back at the start of September. The last time he was at St.James' Park was just under a year ago as the home side defeated Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 with ex-red Danny Murphy on the score sheet for the second and last time for Spurs. Wiley has refereed Newcastle since that game, back in February a first half strike from Scouser Ryan Taylor gave Wigan all points at the JJB Stadium. Also earlier in that season 2 goals from El Hadji Diouf gave Bolton a 2-1 win at Newcastle. In all of those previous matches he has only failed five times to show the yellow card to a Liverpool player or an opponent. He has also sent-off Steven Gerrard twice and Pepe Reina once, but he has yet to send off an opposition player. He is one of three current referees who have refereed the FA Cup and League Cup Finals, he achieved this two seasons ago by becoming the first referee to do both finals in the same season. He had already refereed Manchester United 4-0 victory over Wigan in the Carling Cup before he got the call to replace Mike Dean as the FA Cup Final between West Ham United and ourselves. His assistants on Saturday are Glenn Turner and Barry Sygmuta, with Howard Webb as the fourth official. Some memorable matches involving Liverpool and Alan Wiley. 11th March 2001 - A trip to Birkenhead in the 6th round of the FA Cup saw us come away 4-2 winners at John Aldridge's Tranmere Rovers. 2nd March 2002 - Nicolas Anelka scores his only Liverpool goal away from Anfield as we triumph 2-0 at Craven Cottage.
