Why Wolves’ Willy Boly avoided a red card vs Newcastle

Mike Dean was right Mike Dean usually comes in for some criticism each time he officiates a game. Despite being seen as one of the best officials in England, he tends to make a game all about himself. Right after trending following the London derby, Dean officiated as Newcastle took on Wolves. He was trending on social media in the first hour, after two things happened. He sent DeAndre Yedlin off and also failed to show a red card to Willy Boly after an elbow to Newcastle’s Ayoze Perez.

Martin Dubravka: Newcastle need a team meeting

Newcastle’s troubling form As it stands, Newcastle United are 18th in the Premier League on just two points, along with Cardiff and Huddersfield.

Rafa Benitez to review Newcastle position in January

Rafa’s Newcastle miracle Rafa Benitez received little backing in the transfer market over the summer from Newcastle owner Mike Ashley. This is despite Benitez somehow guiding Newcastle to a 10th place finish last season. On paper, Newcastle’s squad is simply not good enough to finish in the top 10 of the Premier League. However, thanks in a large part, to Benitez’s managerial expertise, Newcastle did finish 10th. So, as all managers probably would, Benitez was keen to improve upon that finish t...
