We just watched the game again when we were shockingly beaten 2-1 at the City Gerund by Nottingham Forest and the referee was simply embarrassing in the many mistakes he made tonight – and most of them were dead against Newcastle.
When you award two dodgy penalties in the first half and send off two Newcastle players for the supposed fouls, you wonder what the referee’s been smoking.
Such was the game tonight.

You did well with 12 men! https://t.co/SbZncFSWvJ
