    So Newcastle go to Sheffield United tonight.

    That's winless Sheffield United, with only 2 points from 17 games, don't even look like winning, and who are well on course to become the worst PL team ever.

    Didn't Derby only win against Newcastle in that dreadful season?

    Don't really get this. If it's not safe to congregate in dressing rooms and celebrate goals together then it's not safe to play a contact sport.

    Either let them crack on, or do the right thing and suspend it.

    No real question in my mind that it's a penalty. The question for me was whether it might be more than just that. On balance, I think just a penalty is right.

    Nearly the most catastrophic of own goals by Sheffield United!

    Obviously it's a win at last - any win is a much needed win for them.

    But at the end of the day, they needed a handball in order to beat a 10 man Newcastle at home.

    How have Newcastle got 19 points? They are bloody terrible. I have watched them 4-5 times this season, I could really see them going down!

    Well done Sheffield United, would be nice if Burnley could get a win tonight too.

    This is really interesting.

    I'm absolutely certain it's a wrong decision to only give Brady a yellow. But the earlier tackle/foul by Shaw might save him from even giving away a FK, let alone a red.

    Can they go back to give another free kick? Shocking decision to not give that tbh.

    That's a red on another day tbh.
