“Vile man” – Some Spurs fans not pleased at announcement ahead of Newcastle game

Last week’s trip to Manchester City proved to be nerve wracking for Spurs fans with Mauricio Pochettino’s side on the back foot for the majority of the match.

Tottenham are likely to enjoy a lot more of the ball at home against Newcastle on Sunday which could also present the opportunity for a home debut for Giovani Lo Celso after the Argentine hardly touched the ball in his late cameo at the Etihad.

Newcastle come into the game having lost both of their opening games and should be a straightforward home win if Spurs wish to aspire to challenge for the title.

Some Spurs fans have been left angered by the announcement that Mike Dean will be officiating the match.

Dean and Pochettino got into a fierce war of words after Tottenham’s loss against Burnley last season and the Spurs manager was subsequentially fined for the incident and served a two-game touchline ban.

Although the Argentine apologised and played down the incident back then (BBC), some Spurs fans weren’t pleased with the decision to appoint Dean to officiate a Spurs game.

Check out how some fans reacted to the news (some of these tweets contain explicit language) :

We might never get to know the truth of what Dean actually said last season that angered Pochettino so much. However, one cannot expect the Premier League to not let Dean officiate any Spurs game as that will be viewed as showing favoritism. Hopefully, there is no controversy with any of his decisions on Sunday.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. The funny thing is that supporters of other clubs believe that he gives us favorable calls because of that one .gif where he’s doing the play-on hand gesture after we score a goal, and it looks like he’s celebrating.

    Reality is, we’ve lost more games with him in charge than won.
