Clattenburg AGAIN

Premier League Tottenham Hotspur
by The Major (U10804614) 05 February 2011
comment on the article

After yet another ridiculous incompetent performance by him today, it is time this official goes the same way as Andy D`Urso. The Championship.
His decisions today were so bad for both teams that he has become embarrassing. How does he sleep at night?

Mark Clattenburg is a disgrace to English football. I just dread turning up to watch a game and see he is the referee, I feel I have wasted my seat money every time !

Dreadful display again. Jenas was very lucky to stay on for his tackle on the Chinese bloke, that was a straight red. Nico's goal was class. I just hope him and Pav and chucked back on the bench next game now and get a proper chance in the team.

Not just Clattenburg, EVERY WEEK we get poor decisions from referees which change a game.
I know its a hard job but just as the standard of football has improved immensely these last few years so must the quality of refs.

Unfortunately though, the people in charge of who the refs are for the EPL are so stubborn they won't listen to what the fans have got to say.

You can tell 606 is being ended, the mods would have pulled this article not long ago!

Clattenburg did get a lot of decisions right, as always though, it's the major ones he got wrong that stand out, and someone reffing at this level shouldn't be consistently getting major decisions wrong like him, Dowd and Webb do

At least we were on the winning side this time

What annoyed me the most was when he decided to award that third penalty for an apparent handball, which only happened because cahill had seen the linesman flag so he tried to grab the ball.

Clattenburg then appeared to do his best to ignore his assisstant, it just highlighted his immense incompetence.

Was at the Lane yesterday, not our best performance of the season by far. But with the Arsenal result announced on the loud speaker and Niko's late screamer, made for an amazing afternoon :D
