Many Newcastle United fans have been left slamming Jarred Gillett in the first half of their game away at Watford on Saturday afternoon.
The Australian referee decided to give Javier Manquillo a yellow card for a foul on Danny Rose in the 18th minute of the match, and a lot of Magpies thought that it should not have even been a foul, let alone a booking.
Where will Newcastle finish in the Premier League?
7th - 10th
Gillett has made history in today’s fixture by being the first ref from outside of the UK and Ireland to have refereed a game in the Premier League, after spending two years officiating in the EFL Championship, and he also spent nine years in the Australian top flight.
However, several members of the Toon Army have been unhappy with his performance so far, and will want more decisions to go their way in the second half against the Hornets.

“Ref’s all over the place.”
“Ref having a nightmare”
“Referee clearly trying to make a name for himself here”
“Send him back to Aus”
“This ref is card happy mind.”
“What a joke”
