Seven minutes from time in the goalless draw at home to West Brom the England Under-20 World Cup victor had the ball in the net at the Kop end only for it to be disallowed. It was hard but I think only one time Loris Karius had to make a save - an important one.
"For me it's twice deflected and I'm still not sure if the hand was with the ball". I was celebrating. I don't know what changed his mind but he changed his mind.
And the Englishman was far from happy with referee Paul Tierney after the final whistle, claiming he "changed his mind" on the goal, having previously awarded it. So if there was a handball it just happened, and so obviously the linesman or whoever thought he saw it 100 per cent.
Next for Pardew's side is another tough game as they host Manchester United on Sunday as he goes in search of his first win in charge of his latest Premier League club. The defender kicked it on to my chest, I tried to chest it in and it has clipped my arm.

"I'd like to give him more opportunities in terms of scoring a goal, but I couldn't have asked for anymore, he still created some moments".
"He has made me feel welcome, he has showed a lot of faith in me and played me in some important games", he added.
Was Solanke's handball intentional?
"They can obviously do what they think is right in all of the different moments, and we have to accept it, that's our life".
"Second half was better, we changed the system a few times, and had the chances again, scored a disallowed goal, so a night like this when a team defends like this you need either an early goal or a bit of luck, and we had absolutely nil luck!"
