The 37-year-old from Gosforth will then take charge of the game at St Mary’s on Wednesday.

  • Oh goody, because of the allegations people have forgotten how badly he reffed that Chelsea v Man U game, he was a joke.

  • It's referees like Clattenburg who make the case for technology.

  • MB agree with you -- seems at times the same when they pick a national side -- not who is playing well but who is in with the establishment!

  • Chelsea encapsulates what is wrong with modern football. Battenberg does likewise for refereeing. An attention-seeking lightweight, seemingly the darling of the FA.

  • Perhaps he's going to calm down a bit and keep it in his shirt.

  • The problem is that once the FA have promoted their rising "stars" Like Battenburg and BathOliver they are reluctant to back down. Failure to act on Zamora's encroachment in the QPR game is a classic instance where neither the ref nor the FA are wiling to be accountrable for poor quality reffing. Paul "Big Club" Lambert has jsut been banned for a rant at an equally bad decision by a linesman. Not a hint that the linesman has been sanctioned in any way.

  • City are top of the fair play league and will go to Southampton looking for a win. Clatterburg has just emerged from a potential scandal seemingly 'whiter than white' so this is a big come-back test for him. Lets hope he doesn't spoil his own comback party by making a mess of this game !

  • I have never rated him as a ref and no doubt like having penalties awarded against having bad refs for a match will even out over the season....errr no it won't! There needs to be independent adjudicators watching the matches, ex-players of good standing, who right to have referees punished such as players give then cards and if utter misconduct, like the encroachment, have the right to have them fined. I also question what the good of the fourth official is and the linesmen, sorry assistant referees, as they never seem to question wrong decisions. But where is the will or authority coming from within the Premier League, Clattenburg has just be proved to have been the victim of scandalous accusations from Chelsea, which even had Fergie on his side, and what happens - nothing! No apology to the man, no action taken against Ramires! A closing comment in an article out here about the situation was..." Chelsea won't even apologise to Clattenburg. They don't have to. Roman's money talks louder than any public apology and everyone knows it. That's truly sorry state of the English game. " But back to the game here's to a second back to back away wins and I hope the game is the headlines and no the officials.. OTBC

  • OMFG! Despite the utter nonsense of all this Chelski-generated RAC-ist stuff, WHY Oh WHY do we have to be lumbered with Battenberg?? I suppose Soton & Naaridge are just "little" clubs so good practice for him. So he`s all ready to award penalties to the big boys and deny them for the minnows. Somebody should object. He should do a few practice matches in Scotland or somewhere.

  • bother. The press will be on ref watch to the detriment of the game, to see if the prima-donna in the black can ref a game without controversy. Wonder what odds Billy the Bookie will give for Battenburg to get more headlines than City and the Saints put together
