It has become apparent recently that some referees are officiating in games where they have a bias either for or against a club.

Strong example case for this is Mark Atkinson vs. Liverpool. In the Man Utd vs. Liverpool game, he made two decisions that cost the club 2 points in rankings and put an end to their longest ever win streak. That could just be a one off, but 1) take a look at the decisions made in that game. They were clearly biased either for Utd or against Liverpool. 2) look at the firmino disallowed goal against villa. That’s without mentioning his officiating in a handful of games last season where we dropped points. I’m not begrudging the guy for disliking us, I simply don’t think with his track record he should be allowed to referee another Liverpool game.

Im sure this isn’t the only instance this has happened. Clubs should be able to blacklist referees that they feel are biased against them and veto any who they think may be biased towards their opponent.
