The Men in Black - Man City v QPR

The Men in Black - Man City v QPR

Mike Dean from the Wirral will take charge of the crunch Premier League decider between Queens Park Rangers and Manchester City.

The official set off on his path in 1985 before progressing to the National List of Referees in 1997. Three years later he joined the Select List where he has resided since.

He has taken charge of both the FA Cup Final (2008) and League Cup Final (2011) and remains one of the most experienced officials on the list.

This weekend he will be assisted by Mr Stuart Burt (Northants) and Mr Andy Garratt (West Midlands) with the fourth official Mr Neil Swarbrick (Lancashire)

Thus far this season Dean has taken charge of 42 games dishing out 143 yellow cards and a four reds - giving him a card average 3.50 cards per game.

Refereeing Rangers


ean first took charge of QPR as the R's travelled to Swindon Town in 1998. Despite Mike Sheron giving Rangers the advantage, Mark Walters levelled before half time with a spot kick, before Iffy Onoura turned the game on its head - Walters then netted the clincher at the death with Paul Murray also seeing red.

In 1999 that 3-1 scoreline was in Rangers' favour as defender Jermaine Darlington handed QPR a lead, added to by a Chris Kiwomya strike. Clyde Wijnhard halved the arrears before Gavin Peacock clinched the opening day win for the R's.

Fast forward to 2006 - where Dean's Select List exploits kept him away from Rangers. His return to presiding over QPR didn't go down well as Crystal Palace mauled Rangers. Former youth product Dougie Freedman netted along with strikes from Shefki Kuqi and the enigmatic Clinton Morrison.

The official took charge of Queens Park Rangers first trip to Chelsea in a number of years when a Lee Camp own goal separated the two sides in a lifeless fixture at Stamford Bridge. Claudio Pizarro's strike cannoning back off the upright, into the back of Camp and drifted into the net.

Dean refereed Rangers against Coventry City in 2008. A drab goalless draw, rather typical of both teams at the time as both were firmly locked in Championship mid-table mediocrity. Fast forward to 2012 and it was Chelsea again for Dean and QPR.

The FA Cup once more as the wounded Blues came back to W12 following the furore of a defeat earlier in the Premier League campaign. Dean handed the visitors a very generous spot kick, owing much to the theatrics of Daniel Sturridge, before Juan Mata dispatched from the spot.

Rangers faced a crucial six-pointer away at Blackburn Rovers and the home side seem home and hosed with Yakubu, Steven N'Zonzi and a Nedum Onouha own goal effectively putting QPR to the sword before the break. A wonderful double from Jamie Mackie hauled Rangers back into the fixture, but it wasn't enough as points once more went awry.

A home fixture marked his penultimate QPR match of the campaign as Rangers hosted neighbour from North London, Arsenal. Adel Taarabt gave his former club Tottenham a moment of cheer when he turned Thomas Vermaelen with consummate ease before burying a well-taken effort.

Theo Walcott was helped by a fortunate deflection off the upright to strike home an equaliser for the visiting side. It was the persistence of Jamie Mackie that helped set up an all important winner for QPR with Samba Diakité slamming home - Dean had a day to remember as well, booking seven players.

Perch Thrown To The Wolves

JAMES Perch saw red in the first half as Queens Park Rangers handed Wolverhampton Wanderers their first win under Paul Lambert.

The wing-back had received a let-off last week against Ipswich Town but could have no complaints as he set into motion the chain of events that ultimately saw QPR to their downfall.

After being booked for dissent by card merchant referee Tim Robinson he flew into a stupid challenge, missing the ball entirely and giving the official little alternative but t
