Is that Joelinton's best ever finish?

Hoffenheim pulled off the heist of the decade getting that sum for Joelinton.

In the top 5. We can now rule out social anxiety being the cause of how shite he has been.

Wow that's bad defending. Stevens fluffs his clearance and Saint-Maximin finishes.

10 men and 1 down after that mistake from Stevens....Sheffield Utd’s CL pushing falling apart here, understandably, but this began with the disallowed goal at Villa

As if the commentator is pinning blame on the keeper for that :dash3:

Should be level or should be 2-0!

Sharp misses a header and Almiron passes a shot to Henderson.

Don’t think he was? Thought he was just saying he wasn’t positioned but because he expected Stevens to clear it

I think that’s a good learning curve for Henderson if he’s trying to become an elite goalkeeper, moments like that where you need to be switched on 100% of the time and understand your positioning in relation to where the nearest goal threat is

Well his positioning was fine and it's hardly like he had time to get across to the near post and cover that given it's less than a second between the mistake and the shot. 

Nothing to do with being an elite keeper or wanting to be. Incredibly harsh to pin any criticism on him in my opinion.

Pundits always blame the keepers. Should be more goalkeeper pundits.

It has everything to do with him being an elite keeper though. They wouldn’t analyse it like that if it was Newcastle’s keeper because he’s not tipped to take over from De Gea at Old Trafford.

I dont think he don’t a lot wrong as it’s a mistake that will happen rarely but if you’re someone like Allison or Ederson you will watch that back and think that they could could have positioned themselves better against the attacking threat in case in the ball runs past to them

He didn’t do much wrong and most managers wouldn’t hold that against him but a world class keeper would look at his placement there and think they could do better in future if they made the same error

I think all keepers would look at it and see if they can do better but sometimes  only the best can.

That was a rare bad day at the office for Sheffield United. Very rarely can I remember them getting pumped like that. I think even without the red card, they weren't quite at the races today, Newcastle were much better.

The red card, the ease in which the goals were conceded, and still fluffed a couple great chances. One of them games they were destined never to win.

I'm not 100% sure it's quite working as well with Sander Berge over John Lundstrum either. They miss Lundstrum's runs into the box.

It might actually be a blessing in some ways they got smashed because let's face it, now is the time to wake up before you play someone you are competing for position with in Man Utd next.

We've got the FA Cup next weekend. I think we have to be considering fielding a weakened team in the league against Villa mid week.
