Referee admits he let Steve Brown down

Charm merchant referee Mike Dean recalls the time he sent off Steve Brown at The Valley when he was on a stretcher.  'That wasn't ideal.' he admits to Four Four Two.

If he had his time again, he wouldn't have sent Brown off, 'but like any job you need to make mistakes to make yourself better.'

Charlton fans made their feelings known by throwing club shop catalogues attached to their seats on to the pitch.

Steve Brown confirmed on Charlton Live that it was a deliberate handball and he should have been sent off.


  1. Not wanting to leap to Mike Deans defense but Steve Brown has confessed to faking injury and conceded it was the correct decision to send him off.

  2. Also I seem to recall he dived full length to handball it. Like a goalkeeper. Still don’t understand why he did it.
