At the age of 51-years-old, Mike Dean is still refereeing top-flight football, and this weekend he’s been appointed to take charge of Tottenham vs Newcastle in the Premier League, something some Spurs fans aren’t happy with.

The Lilywhites only had to play five games last season in the top flight with Dean in charge, yet that was enough for him to dish out one red card to Mauricio Pochettino’s side and give three spot-kicks against them, including two in one game away at Wolves as Tottenham won 3-2, Transfermarkt.
So far this season, Pochettino’s side is unbeaten, albeit after only two games, and with Newcastle losing their opening two games, Spurs have to be the favourites for the tie, even if a lot of the fans are worried now that Dean is the man in the middle for the tie.

Lacks integrity. His decisions have definitely been swayed by online Arsenal fans claiming he’s a Spurs fan. Gone out of his way ever since not to give decisions our way You know what you are, you know what you are, Mike Dean, you know what you are

Not this clown! Does everything possible to shake off the spurs fan tag he got.

He is so obsessed of rubbishing the myth . Now he just awards so many things unfairly against us.

Ever since he was supposedly a spurs man he’s gone out of his way to be blatantly against us. It never came out what he said to set poch off like that

The Lilywhites are, quite clearly, not happy that Mike Dean will be refereeing them on Sunday, although it shouldn’t stop them getting all three points.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
