EXCLUSION ORDER FOR CLATTENBURG?



Has Mark Clattenburg (pictured) fallen foul of the PMOGL appointments committee?

He is a surprise omission from the list of Premier League matches for the weekend beginning November 29 (see below).


He will neither be officiating, nor acting as Fourth Official.

Notwithstanding the plaudits he received on TV's Match of The Day programme for playing an advantage which led to a goal, his performance in the Everton v West Ham match was not one of his most authoritative - particularly when the action became heated and ugly.

Has Clattenburg been overlooked following Saturday's unconvincing display. Is this why he is off the list?

Or is it because of continuing behind-the-scenes friction with the PMOGL hierarchy?


We will probably never know - until, like his friend, Mark Halsey,  he pens his autobiography.

*Beware the  bad language, but the referee (Clattenburg) takes the rap from an aggrieved Liverpool "commentator" at the end of last season's match where a Palace comeback scotched Liverpool's lingering hopes of winning the Premiership title.
