The Chelsea fixture, on Sunday, saw our summer signing, Fabian Schar, make his debut.

Schar was deployed in a back-three as Rafael Benitez tried to nullify the threat posed by the attacking talent Chelsea have in abundance in their ranks.

Unfortunately, Schar’s excellent debut was somewhat marred by a controversial penalty decision given by the referee, Paul Tierney.

Tierney decided that a perfectly good tackle on Marcus Alonso, where Fabian got the ball first, was a foul, with Eden Hazard scoring the subsequent penalty.

Following the final whistle, Schar took to social media to offer his views on the decision.

Like many inside the ground and thousands watching the action on TV, Schar didn’t agree with the decision:

Schar’s views are echoed by many others on social media:

Those views are reflective of those of Vital Newcastle United, it was a poor decision.

But, we’ll leave you with a social media comment that is brash and to the point:

Let’s hope that Newcastle get the rub of the green in their next match when they face the Premier League title holders, Manchester City.
