Many Wolves fans have been left fuming as they learned who the officials will be for their home game against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday afternoon.
As shared by Talking Wolves on their Twitter page, Stuart Attwell has been appointed as the on-field referee for the match at Molineux, while Martin Atkinson is on VAR duty.
Where will Wolves finish in the Premier League?
Some of Attwell’s controversial decisions in the past have gone against the Midlands club, as former manager Nuno Espirito Santo even called him out in his post-match interview after a loss to Chelsea back in July of last year (Birmingham Mail), while he has given more yellow cards and yellows leading to reds to the Wanderers over any other team in his career (Transfermarkt).
Atkinson has already been involved in controversy this season, awarding a questionable penalty to West Ham United in their 4-2 away win at Newcastle United on the opening weekend (The Daily Telegraph), and so it is understandable to see several WWFC supporters unhappy with the appointments.

These Wanderers fumed as the news was shared on Twitter:
“Oh my days, I actually despise this guy so much”
“That’s us losing already”
“Oh well that’s us 0/6 pts then by next Monday”
“If ever proof was needed that two wrongs do not make a right.”
“We need new referees in the Premier League”
