Football's infinite caprice. Last weekend, Newcastle's Karl Darlow's heroics against Rotherham earned the emoji praise of one Iker Casillas. Darlow dropped a bollock before recovering spectacularly:

Casillas, now at Porto, tweeted his #respect.

If Casillas is following Darlow tonight, then the emoji of choice should be the monkey holding its hands over its eyes.
Newcastle took the lead against Norwich tonight in the very first minute, but contrived to surrender it within 12 minutes, and currently trail 2-1. The second came from a hideous error by Darlow.
Here it is, in all of its ugliness. Cameron Jerome even had time to rub salt in the wounds by pulling a Ross Barkley and celebrating before he stroked the ball over the line.

It might be time for Rafa to get Rob Elliot in, now that the Irishman is fit after long-term injury.
