In the second half of the match between Reading and Liverpool, Referee Mark Clattenburg tried to issue a yellow card for Danny Guthrie’s foul of Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge. The only problem is, Clattenburg had left his notebook, which contained his yellow and red cards, in the locker room at halftime.
Thankfully, the fourth official was able to provide the assist and make sure that Guthrie saw the physical evidence that he was getting booked.
It just goes to show you that (surprise!) even the top officials aren’t perfect.
