Replays I think will return next year as they're apart of the TV deal n would involve some form of compensation to itv n the BBC

First time I'd watched Watkins in a full 90 minute match since he left us and was amazed at how far he's come.

Was a constant thorn in United's side and linked play brilliantly, he looked a lot better than all of the attacking players United had on offer. I've gone from wondering whether he would be good enough for Villa to thinking maybe he's too good for them.

I liked Shearer's rather dry refusal to join in with the adulation when Ollie's shot hit the bar....

Another one ruled out- he is so unlucky.
He was poor today despite being unlucky with the goal. I thought he was onside. His whole body position made him look like he was very much onside and again it highlights my issue with the offside rule and VAR. If Ollie was a ball he'd still be in play yet we continue to play the complete opposite for offside. It's just plain wrong. That said, I was quite glad of the outcome. All of a sudden Newcastle have gone from looking like they're on deaths door to be in a position where they can make themselves comfortable (now four points clear of Naarwich with a game in hand) and drag three others (Everton, Leeds and Brentford) into a very much needed look over their shoulders.
