Referee announced for Newcastle v West Ham- Magpies have lost all their Premier League games under him!

The referee for West Ham’s weekend clash against Newcastle United has been officially announced as Paul Tierney. This is the beginning of a crucial run of winnable (at least on paper!) fixtures for the Hammers and Newcastle’s past record under Tierney will give them more confidence ahead of this Round 14 clash at St.James’ Park.

The Magpies, in FOUR attempts so far, have NOT won a Premier League game in which Tierney was the man in the middle. All four games ended in losses for Newcastle and West Ham will be more than hopeful of breaking the three game winning streak of Rafa Benitez’s men.

Newcastle, it must be remembered, did the DOUBLE over West Ham last season, winning 3-0 at home and 3-2 at the London Stadium.
