Well I did see him ref but never saw this report, but you clearly have as you know the evidence was damming, You have confirmed that City thought he was bent and also he had to resign, so please tell me what it said?

I am not here to defend Peter Walton by the way as I did not rate him as a ref, but would like to hear what was in this report and your sources to confirms its existence and that City believed he was bent, rather than criticised his performance, and also evidence he resigned due to it.
Thanks for the snotty response. City's dossier was never made public as you well know but Prestwich Blue has posted a number of times about it on the basis of information from within the club. It was also confirmed that three other refs were named in the dossier for bias against City and one of them, Lee Mason, was suddenly and without credible explanation pulled from City's next game and didn't get to referee another City game for over a year. Chris Foy was another one mentioned in City's dossier. I can't recall the third one's name off the top of my head.

I know you're a fully paid up member of the agenda deniers club but Walton was bent and was fired. If you want any more detailed info check PB's earlier postings or maybe ask him yourself. He's one of the most credible posters on BM as you know.

just give me equality
Read the article, its pretty clear the context of the story.
And yet the story mentions Sterling. If he had scored 20 would he still be omitted as he is not a striker ? I think where the OP means it would have been easy to add one line showing Sterling in that position, especially as he is mentioned.

So the source of info is from a poster on Blue moon? I may have questioned it at the time and yes I have read it, but as the poster stated things with such conviction I wondered if he had some other evidence.

If that is true it is a great leap of faith, to state as fact, so much information when the source is a poster on a fans forum.
The originator has also confirmed it separately in his blog

Tbh if it was someone reasonable I'd locate links to both but tbh, you would deny or argue the toss so I cba

I thought Pam was the most credible poster on bluemoon or Banned Tosspot ;-)

Sharp backed into Otamendi in the first half and then just dropped to the floor like a stone. Jenas starts going on about how Otamendi "often gets caught out like this" and that "he didn't need to commit a foul there" and how his "decision making just isn't great for a defender of his experience"...etc...etc...etc. They showed the replay and it was obvious that there wasn't a foul and that Sharp had "dived". Jenas then says "to be fair, he's not done much wrong there". He must've started about ten sentences with those three words for the rest of the match after he'd been quick to deride our players/play. Fair play that he had the guts to backtrack, but he's just like the rest of them, his first instinct is to stick the boot into us no matter what he sees.
I had a pop at him for praising a Sheff Utd player for the tactical foul he made, mainly because there was no mention of the phrase and that it was said positively. To be fair though, now that I think of it, I seem to remember Jenas praising Fernandinho's ability to snuff out danger and not really using "tactical foul"... He could actually be one of the people who thinks it's bollocks how that's been made a thing for City only.

He also asked why there wasn't a yellow for a few fouls if I remember right. Did he call out the red card challenges though?

I can remember the game he give 2 pens in about 5 mins
Yeah. He was an absolute weapon. I only knew the names of Midgely and Milford around those times. And then Courtney for all the wrong reasons. Its mad how they're so prominent in today's game compared to then - unless nostalgia has warped my memory of it and they were just as bad back then but not on TV every week and under the microscope?

This was written in 2012

In 21 matches refereeing Manchester United over eight seasons, the Reds have won 15, drawn 6 and lost 0.
In the same period, Walton has officiated 13 Manchester City games with only 3 ending in victory for the Citizens with 6 defeats.

But the last four years of refereeing from Mr Walton are even more revealing.

Manchester United 11 wins, 4 draws and 0 defeats (15 matches 37 points)
Manchester City 0 wins, 3 draws and 4 defeats (7 matches 3 points).

In 22 matches over four seasons, Man Utd have NEVER LOST with Walton in charge while City have NEVER WON.

Or take the last three seasons where the cumulative points difference between United and City is 27 points - fully 18 of these points are due to the supposedly unconscious biases of an old man.

Apologies if the reply came over as snotty, not my intention, but I was wondering why you came across with such conviction.

Each to their own but as you say it sounds like PB himself has not seen this dossier himself so the ‘source’ is now someone at the club who has passed info to someone who writes on a forum, we scoff on here when Sky quote ‘sources at the club’ but seem happy to believe it when it suits.

Of course the document may well have been passed to the FA but with literally no proof its difficult for me personally to believe. I would imagine football club are hives of gossip and even people in those positions may exaggerate or bend the truth.

Out of interest if the Referee was in a clubs pocket, say Liverpool would you expect them to be fined now etc, as they have since changed ownership, or the case be forgotten?

Thanks for the info.

For the record you chose to interact with me not the other way round, I just gave you the courtesy of a reply.

But yes, you are correct just because something is written in a blog would not make me immediately believe it and I would probably challenge elements or seek further clarification for bits I was uncomfortable with, how strange.
