(if this isn't new topic worthy please could a kindly mod merge it with the match thread?)

Flying around on twitter that Dowd has been appointed ref for this game... does anyone have confirmation of this?

Obviously we have to hope it isn't true.

One of my mates went to that pre-season Asia tournament the other summer and Phil Dowd was there in the bar with them. He was apparently really sound and held his hands up and said he made a big mistake re: the Vidic incident at Wembley.

It's reassuring to know he knows when he's made a mistake, unlike Halsey for example, but even so he could be the nicest guy in the world, Phil Dowd is still an unbelievably crap referee. Amazing how he's never been demoted on the back of some of his decisions.

The thought of Dowd sat at a bar in Asia 3 years later admitting his fault for Vidic incident makes me feel sick. Worst ref in the league. Headline grabbing prick.

Have we ever won a game when this idiot has refereed it? It seems that he constantly makes bad decisions against us, notably Vidic incident, and the Herd red card, it seems rare that we go a game with him as ref where we don't have a player sent off or concede penalties. Him and Halsey are the worst refs for us.

He wouldn't dare **** this up. Would he?

Nah, he must know that us going out would be major headlines. After the Southampton penalty, and his previous with us, any controversy will be plastered everyone.

Surely the little **** wouldn't dare?!?!

Yes, he was ref at the Capital One Cup game against Man City.
