Mike Dean steps up to referee the 2nd half of the Black Country Derby after Paul Tierney has torn his calf muscle

He only refereed Newcastle v Arsenal 24 hours ago

That’s Tierney finished for the season I would imagine.....

Yep, even a grade 1 calf strain you are looking at 2 to 3 weeks, so very little chance of him refereeing again this season.

Its a pity his season has gone so bad since the last internationals, injury which got him removed from Leicester v Man City, a shocker in the cup final and then this
Think you are being very harsh on Tierney here, firstly injury does not get you removed from a fixture, more you
Have to hand it in as you are not physically fit to do the game. Secondly you are being extremely harsh saying
He had a shocker in the carabao cup final.
Agree there is little chance he will referee again this season due to his injury picked up today, but there is no reason he shouldnt get lots of var appointments in the meantime.
On another point you made about referees pairing up, that wont work as there are three referees now appointed
To each game, on field referee, 4th official and var.

1. You know what I meant about the Leicester v Man City. He can't control being injured

2. He was below standard for the first 60 mins of the final. Shocker might be a bit harsh but it certainly wasn't cup final standard

3. I know but I'm just trying to come up with suggestions on more sustainable ways for referees to be divided up in the future. They definitely need to change the current system to prevent what happened today leading to more serious consequences

You can't lie hes been on a downhill curve since the internationals. 90% isn't his fault though. I'm in no doubt he will return even stronger than ever. On his day he's one of the best

On how many occasions this season has the 4O taken over from a referee during the game?  I would suggest when counting one hand would be redundant!!
Why change an accepted system in response to an occasional blip?

One person's misfortune is another's fortune. Presumably Tierney will now have to be replaced as 4th Official for the FA Cup Final. My money would be on Bankes.

Actually having just looked at the FA Cup Final list of Match officials I note that Attwell hasn't been 4th Official before so more probably likely to be him.
