Many Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to slam the news that Paul Tierney will referee the Magpies clash in the Premier League on Sunday
After drawing 1-1 against Norwich City in the Premier League in their most recent outing, despite having to play the majority of the match with ten men following Ciaran Clark’s dismissal, Newcastle next takes on Sean Dyche’s Burnley side at St. James Park on Sunday as Eddie Howe and the Toon chase an elusive first Premier League win of the campaign, a result which could really kickstart their campaign.
Will Newcastle be relegated?
Now, many Magpies fans have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration after it was revealed that Paul Tierney, who issued 3 red cards in his 21 games managed in the Premier League last season (via Transfermarkt), will referee Sunday’s match against the Lancashire outfit.
What did these Newcastle make of the update ahead of the clash against Burnley?
“They give us a ref from the Lancashire FA when we are playing a relegation six pointer against Burnley. What a joke”
“Awful, awful, referee”
“One of the worst referees in the league”
“That’s us getting nowt then”
A victory against Dyche’s side would see the Magpies draw level with Burnley and fellow Premier League strugglers Norwich City on 10 points in the table, as Eddie Howe aims to seal a crucial three points which could really spark their season into life.
