Key events

Watford 1-1 Sunderland: The Black Cats have been dominant since they conceded the first match. Choudhury thinks he has kicked the ball, but the referee’s clock disagrees and Alese gets the goal.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: Isak and Christie are on deck after butting heads. Both seem to be fine.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: CLOSE! Fraser lays the ball to Joelinton on the edge of the penalty area, and the Brazilian knocks it off the crossbar. Neto reacts to make some good saves and they eventually clear their lines.

Preston 0-1 Sheffield United: IN EXCLUSION OF FASTING! Ndiaye opens the scoring for the Championship League leaders.

Watford 1-0 Sunderland: Sema clears the ball off the byline, Patterson fails to deal with it and Davis is on hand to score in his first start for the club.

Forest Green 1-0 Morecambe: There are certain things in life you forget: your keys, your partner’s name, what you got in your GCSEs. Another thing that didn’t cross my mind was the fact that Connor Wickham plays for Forest Green and scores goals.

Barcelona 0-0 Elche: RED CARD! The visitors’ defense is really quite bad. Verdu decides to bring down Lewandowski when he goes through the goal. The referee has no choice and Elche is reduced to 10 players. This is going to be a long afternoon for them.

Burnley 1-1 Bristol City: The corner falls inside the penalty area and Wells rushes to score for his former club.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: Trippier takes a free kick from distance… hits the outside of the post and bounces over the bar. The goalkeeper had no chance if it was a few centimeters inside.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: Targett swings the free-kick at the back post where Schar is waiting, but his header is fairly weak and causes no problems. Newcastle are better in the game, that’s for sure.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: Fascinating, in its own way.

Eddie Howe wore an all-black suit for the pre-match minute’s silence, but quickly reverted to his more usual tracksuit as Jason Tindall oversaw kick-off.#AFCB

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: Zemura sends a cross into the penalty area, Pope tries to get there, but doesn’t get close to the ball, it gets to Tavernier, but he heads it over the empty net.

Norwich 0-1 West Brom: O’Shea was given an acre of space to score from a close range free kick. Dean Smith will resent that tag (or lack thereof).

Oldham 1-0 Eastleigh: Luke Burgess opened the scoring in the final game to be coached by John Sheridan. In the middle of the week they announced that the manager will leave the club as they look to refresh themselves after relegation to the National League. Will they end up winning?

Burnley 1-0 Bristol City: Benson hit one home to get Vincent Kompany’s side off to a good start. They are certainly a mile away from Burnley at Dyche.

Newcastle 0-0 Bournemouth: Neto has what appears to be a muscle problem. They have Travers on the bench who is a decent backup.

Accrington 1-0 Cheltenham: Before today, all of Stanley’s goals this season came in the second half. Sean McConville changed that.

Dortmund 0-0 Schalke: It looks like Marco Reus will be sent off. He is down on deck and not happy with life.

Start the game

Whistles sticking out! Let’s go!

Wreaths were laid in the center circle of St James’ Park before kick-off. We will now witness a moment of silence across Britain, accompanied by the national anthem.

It seems to be pretty sunny all over the country. This could be our last Saturday with good weather for a while so we have to soak it up.

Ben Fisher was at Molineux for Manchester City’s latest outing.

Suzanne Wrack watched Manchester United put a good attack on Reading on the opening day of the Women’s Super League season. Someone named Le Tissier scored two…

“To be fair to Brighton and Palace,” John Davis sayss, “one of the main reasons was that the car parks around the stadium were predicted to be very busy for commuter students (who had priority) – not just the canceled train strikes. He’s still a little grateful that Newcastle went ahead away at Brighton during the strike, but then the students weren’t sent off.

Damn students!

End: Wolves 0-3 Manchester City

It was all very easy for City at Molineux, helped by Nathan Collins’ rather stupid red card.

I watched Elche v Athletic Bilbao last week and the hosts were extremely unlucky so I wouldn’t hold out much hope for them in Barcelona today. They put up some of the worst defense I’ve seen in years.

Barney Ronay on the World Cup and its price.

Admittedly, it’s a quiet day in the Premier League, but things are happening in Europe.

Barcelona v Elche kicks off at 3.15pm (BST), while Borussia Dortmund host Schalke at 2.30pm.

In the FA Cup it’s United of Manchester against Curzon Ashton.

Teams: Newcastle v Bournemouth

Newcastle (4-3-3): Papa; Trippier, Schar, Burn, Targett; Guimaraes, Willock, Joelinton; Almiron, Fraser, Isaac.

Subs: Karius, Botman, Lascelles, Ritchie, Lewis, Manquillo, Wood, Murphy, Longstaff.

Bournemouth (4-5-1): Net; Smith, Senesi, Mepham, Zemura; Christie, Lerma, Cook, Billing, Tavernier; Salt pans.

Subscriptions: Travers, Stephens, Marcondes, Stacey, Lowe, Stanislas, Dembele, Moore, Anthony.

There were a few Premier League games last night.

Ben Fisher witnessed one of the worst games in Premier League history at Villa Park.

Meanwhile, Pete Lansley was there to see another Forest capitulation.


It’s Eddie Howe’s derby at St James’ Park as his current club Newcastle welcome former employers Bournemouth. The 11th vs. 14th battle should whet the appetite.

Keeper Gary O’Neil has impressed in charge of the Cherries since replacing the sacked Scott Parker. It’s been two weeks since Bournemouth came back from two goals down at half-time against Nottingham Forest to win. O’Neil has had plenty of time to think about how to approach this game, whether to stay or reverse his tactical changes that brought success in the East Midlands.

It’s the only Premier League kick-off at 3pm today as Brighton v Crystal Palace is called off due to a planned train strike. It’s not that far from south London to Brighton, but the authorities felt it necessary to withdraw it despite the fact that many matches with greater distances between them are allowed to go ahead.

We will obviously see a minute’s silence and national anthem at all games across the country.

Dozens of qualifying matches for the FA Cup are also being played today. Submit the ones you follow and we’ll try to keep some of the most enjoyable ones.

Let’s hope it’s a fun day!
