It was yet another stunning defeat at St. James’ Park tonight and this time it was Sheffield Wednesday who for the second year running beat us 1-0 at home.
Last year it was in the League Cup and this year it was in the Championship.
We have already had too many shocking defeats at a packed-out St. James’ Park this season – that’s now four league games we have lost at home already this season after we lost none at home in our promotion season seven years ago.
So much for St. James’ Park being a fortress this season.

Here’s what the table looks like after today’s game, which was the worst result possible for us and the better team won on the night.
