Andy Carroll is again making the headlines on Tyneside as his goal for Liverpool almost certainly guarantees Newcastle European football next season.
But let's give former Toon defender Sylvain Distin a pat on the back too.
Toffees centre-back Distin took "full responsibility" for the 2-1 loss, apologising to the club's supporters, manager David Moyes and his team-mates for the 62nd-minute blind backpass that allowed Luis Suarez to cancel out Nikica Jelavic's first-half opener.
More poor defending allowed Andy Carroll to score an 87th-minute winner as Everton's hopes of a first major trophy since 1995 went up in smoke.
Sylvain Distin: "I take full responsibility for that goal.
"I think it changed the game, so I have to accept it."
