I saw Mike send off Razor Ruddock for foul and abusive language soon after the Ipswich game. But he ended the four-month drought and wait to reach the milestone on Tuesday night, doing so by dismissing the Manchester United captain. Mike Dean in charge of today's Championship promotion decider. On Tuesday night he handed out his 100th red card. In typical Dean form, he then showed another to Leicester player Junior Lewis in the same game. An injured Allan McGregor is sent off when playing for Hill in 2014 by Dean right Brown had to be carried off the pitch on a stretcher — not that it stopped Dean from showing him a red card as he was taken away.
Mike Dean — Sandstorm Courtesy of — Celebrity Refs CelebrityRefs King of charades Textbook. He does look like Alan Shearer though. He is the man who has taken refereeing to new heights in the Premier League. First a no-look booking and then an outrageous dummy.

Mike Dean has become the first referee to issue 100 red cards in the Premier League by sending off captain Ashley Young in Tuesday's clash against Wolves. There have been plenty of other great moments involving the 50-year-old. But from Deep Throat to Chelsea Manning, none of them come close to Mike Dean for sheer charisma. And, more importantly, the fun that can be had with it. Everything is laced with the drama of Laurence Olivier, not least how he indicates that he has awarded a penalty. . His second, though, showed just what the top flight had on its hands.
You can also find on 101 Great Goals extensive transfer news both during the transfer windows as well as gossip and rumour throughout the year. More than anything, though, what really stands out from Dean is the way he points and gestures. The 50-year-old first broke into the top flight for the 2000-2001 season and his career has seen its share of highs and lows, including a after a string of controversial decisions, including choosing to send off Ross Barkely during the Merseyside Derby. Andy Cole, Richard Dunne, Laurent Koscielny, Fernando Torres and Mike Williamson have all hit that mark too. Steve Brown tried to stop a Trevor Benjamin flick-on with his hands and managed to injure his leg as he landed. Of course fewer games and very different times so not a valid comparison. That's more than any team in the top flight has ever received, with coming closest in picking up 93.
That was Crewe v Palace not long after I moved to my adopted home town. That is where Hackett is so out of touch. In a Merseyside derby in December 2016 he produced a no-look yellow card to Ross Barkley, to add to his reputation as a flamboyant official. And those were the days when foul and abusive language to an official meant a certain early bath! The official ran for several yards with his arms projected after Taarabt scored. Additionally, Dean often produces unnecessary step-overs when the ball inadvertently comes in his direction. It was a truly momentous moment in Young's career as he joined an elite band of players to have been sent off twice by Dean: Andy Cole, Fernando Torres, Laurent Koscielny, Mike Williamson and Richard Dunne.
An injured Allan McGregor is sent off when playing for Hill in 2014 by Dean right Brown had to be carried off the pitch on a stretcher — not that it stopped Dean from showing him a red card as he was taken away. He might be the celebrity referee to top them all but Dean still knows how to muck in too. Yes he isn't afraid to get the cards out but you rarely see the players complaining at this. The sending-off made Dean the first official in Premier League history to bring up a century of red cards. Dean's last red card was when he against Leicester in December.
A mere 18 years later, Dean brought up his century during Wolves' 2-1 win over Manchester United on Tuesday night when he had the distinct pleasure of flashing a second yellow card in Ashley Young's direction. The most notorious example involved Spurs against Aston Villa, where he could be seen swinging his arms in the air as if he had just struck the ball into the bottom corner himself. Research also flagged up that he twice had Football League matches over the years which ended up 9v9! By my Soccerbase reckoning, Rob Styles managed 55 reds in just 211 games although the numbers may be slightly out. The next highest tally is 67, while Dean is also top of the charts for this season with 10 dismissals to his name.

There have also been eye rolls galore and a slap on Adnan Januzaj's posterior during his 477-game spell in the Premier League. Like Ipswich, how fortunes have changed. Everything is laced with the drama of a Laurence Olivier, not least how he indicates he has awarded a penalty. He faced a similar set of complaints in January 2017 for handing West Ham's Sofiane Feghouli a straight red after a challenge with Manchester United's Phil Jones. Perhaps his most famous moment came in 2015, when he appeared to celebrate a Tottenham goal against Aston Villa at White Hart Lane.
