Such is the circus of the Premier League these days, even the referees are beginning to emerge as stars.
The cult of Mike Dean was celebrated in this glorious video last month, though the buck clearly doesn’t stop with the 48-year-old.
Another of the big name officials we see so often in the Premier League has been celebrated on social media, it seems.
Mr. Mark Clattenburg.
After officiating in both the Champions League and European Championship final, the Geordie has been handed the honour of running the rule over the biggest spectacle in recent Premier League memory.
Ahead of the Manchester derby at Old Trafford on Saturday, the 41-year-old has received perhaps the most bizarre tribute.
Posted by Twitter user @watfordpete, it appears someone has made a BEER named after Clattenburg.
…It’s not every day you see that.
Though we here in the Transfer Tavern pride ourselves on all things football, even we wouldn’t stock it.
