Reports in the media are stating that Mark Clattenburg is considering quitting as a referee.

The beaut refereed his first top flight game in Thomas Gravesen inspired win at Crystal Palace in 2004 before causing controversy with an inept performance, putting it mildly, in a 2007 derby match at Goodison.

Clattenburg was involved in more scandal with some contentious decisions on the weekend, officiating a match between Blackburn and Fulham which drew a lot of subsequent media attention.

I´m sure Mark can be talked out of it by spending some time with somebody he respects and who he´s listened to before for guidance.

If someone knows Steven Gerrard´s number then please keep it schtum.
