Newcastle fans react to Mike Dean’s appointment as referee for Tottenham game

Newcastle are looking for their first points of the season this weekend.

Newcastle go in search of their first points of the Premier League season this weekend when they travel to face Tottenham.

And the Magpies’ official website have confirmed that Mike Dean will be the referee for that trip to north London, his third straight London assignment of the season.

Dean last refereed Newcastle this April, handing out five yellow cards in the 1-1 draw away at Brighton in the closing weeks of last season.

He will be assisted by the pair of Daniel Robathan and Mark Scholes, while Graham Scott will be the fourth official – Anthony Taylor is on the VAR.

But many Newcastle fans took to Twitter to bemoan the fact that Dean is the referee, not expecting too much in the way of a result or decisions.

Dean is one of the more eccentric referees in the Premier League and many supporters feel that an already tough assignment has been made even tougher by his appointment in charge.

There isn’t a great deal of optimism around Newcastle at the moment anyway, but Dean’s presence has made the supporters even less confident of getting an unlikely result.
