Premier League Referees: March 8
Here are the referees for the upcoming Premier League matches on March 8.
Note: These are not FA Cup matches, but are regular fixtures. FA Cup will be March 8 and 9.
Obviously the biggest match is Chelsea v. Spurs, since Chelsea are sitting in first place and Spurs are scrabbling for Champions League football next year. Mr. Wunderkind, Michael Oliver (above), will take that match.
(Wondering where Mark Clattenburg is? After refereeing the Germany v. Chile friendly on Wednesday, he’ll manage the Arsenal v. Everton FA Cup match on Saturday. This is on top of taking three matches last week. Dude’s a machine.)
What is Clatts’ full-time job? Refereeing?
He doesn’t appear to have any other sort of life, that’s for sure. Last I heard, he was studying to become an attorney (he’s an electrician by trade), but it does appear that this is his job for now.
Sometimes I freak myself out with how much I know about these guys…
