The Men in Black - Tottenham v QPR

The Men in Black - Tottenham v QPR

Howard Webb is the man in the middle as Queens Park Rangers travel to White Hart Lane this weekend.

The country's premier official joined the National List of referees in 2000 before progressing to the Select List only a few years later - this leap ensured he hasn't refereed Rangers since.

He has refereed several important fixtures during his career including the FA Cup final, Uefa Champions League final and most impressively the Fifa World Cup final.

Thus far this season he has taken charge of 12 games, dishing out 57 yellow cards and four reds - thus giving him an average of 5.08 cards per game.

He will be assisted by Darren Cann (Norfolk) and Jake Collin (Liverpool), with the fourth official Stuart Atwell (Warwickshire).

REFEREEING RANGERS

Mr Webb's first time overseeing QPR came at Bloomfield Road as Rangers travelled to Blackpool for the first time since 1990. The outcome was very much the same despite a brace either side of half time by Leroy Griffiths. John O'Kane and Graham Fenton levelled matters for Blackpool.

A slender win for QPR then ensued later that campaign under his watchful eye when Andy Thomson dispatched a penalty against Peterborough United to keep Rangers sniffing around the Division Two playoff places.

Webb was by now a familiar face to the QPR fans overseeing three QPR games in 2002/03 - firstly a convincing 2-0 win over Swindon Town with Kevin Gallen and Richard Langley notching for the hosts.

Following a horrendous Christmas period, things dramatically picked up and despite Dan Shittu's goal being cancelled out by Mark Peters at Brentford, Marc Bircham then slammed home an iconic 90th minute goal to secure a priceless win.

Then came the moment of deep heartbreak - the Milennium Stadium, Cardiff. QPR looked weary after months of relentless pressure and this told with just over five minutes of extra time remaining - Andy Campbell putting Cardiff City into Division One.

This was the last time that QPR were overseen by the official that climbed the ranks into the top flight while Rangers remained in the Second Division.

Seriously you're critiquing the referees on here? Us Vital Spurs tended to assess the opposition with a view to beating them on our own and not from the referee's shirt pocket. Pretty freaking weak guy!
