General assessment
First half Clattenbourg did excellent but second and extra time was very bad. He didn't give several more cards, missed many fouls, also he had to awarded one more penalty, assistants horrible.

Other Encounters

His awful assitants

UEFA UEFA CUP 2007 - 2008 1st round:
Ajax - Dinamo Zagreb, 2 - 3. Amsterdam ArenA, Amsterdam, Netherlands, 2007-10-04

This is the first time I saw young up-coming referee Mark Clattenburg in action, and I think his career should be stalled for a while. Maybe he should take charge of matches with Kazakh teams and teams from Iceland for another year or two , just to practice. And he should get himself two new assistants.

He did
He did well in the first half. Nothing wrong with his judgment. I don't think every referee would have awarded a penalty for a friendly push like the one Ajax player Van der Wiel gave. But Clattenburg was in his right to do so.

He did not
In the second half Ajax players realized they had to score so they started attacking (without result). Then the extra time came and the 30 minutes of hard work all or nothing football proved too much for the English referee. He did not see elbows being put in faces, he did not see Huntelaar being held by the Croat goalkeeper, he had difficulty keeping up with the pace. It was all too much for Mark Clattenburg.

They did not
And Clattenburg's assistants were completely wrong a couple of times. It's not often that you get to see such bad assistant referees. When a referee is busy running around trying to keep up, his assistants should be the ones to see what happens in the box, to notice players hitting each other. They didn't. And sure, it's difficult to judge off-side when players are quick and standing on the edge, but more than twice the distance between the last player and the forward was large enough to park a truck in. Awful.

Match
Ajax, once upon a time a great club, seemed to have sold most of their good players and replaced them with nobodies. For some reason the coach, Ten Cate, thought it a good idea to defend the 0-1 result from two weeks ago instead of scoring some more goals. And this was a home match. The same Ten Cate who told the press a few hours later he was going to Chelsea as an assistant to the new coach there. Maybe he came to the conclusion he is simply not good enough to be the main man.
Dinamo Zagreb, by the way, did well, played it very smart.
