Scored, showed a tribute t-shirt, and wasn't booked. Credit to that referee for allowing human sense to overrule paper laws. Clap

A great show of loyalty to his club, undoubtedly. Meanwhile, spare a thought for his wife. While he was training, playing with a ball and getting accolades for running around in shorts she's been trying to deal with losing her baby.

I know what you are saying but for me it's not a great thing.His best way of coping was to carry on as normal, for others it's different.I recall a few years back when Benitez missed his father's funeral for a Liverpool game and the Liverpool fans thought that was brilliant.IMO he should've got his priorities right and been at the funeral alongside his family.In Sharp's case there's his missus and also the grieving grandparents etc.Brave to play? Or cowardly to be away from his grieving family? At the end of the day it's down to the individual how best to cope with such a tragedy.

I agree with QB here, I'm not sure what it says about a man who can lose a child and then go and play a game of football.

Imagine if your child died and the dad said right I'm off to play footy with the lads "what!!!" come on love can't let the sunday league team down. I think divorce.

It's his job, what he does best. puts food on the table for his family. last nights 90 minutes probably gave him some "comfort" and "relief" from the overpowering,consuming feeling of emptiness/loss.

So you would expect someone to go into work as normal if their child dies?

I have no doubt it did.But it isn't just about him.I'm not going to judge him either way.

not unless they loved their job and it would take their mind off things for just a little while.

Me, me, me, me, me.

A thread about Billy Sharp losing his baby son and then playing for his team 2 days later and you decide to have a moan about your old boss.

Unbelievable.

I recall my first wife being in hospital for her final days, we had an evening match - she'd said "Of course you should play" so I did. It was some sort of escape for me, a short release from the turmoil that had been going on around my family and I enjoyed the match. Three days later she died. Looking back it was that struggling to follow a "normal" life that kept me (at least) going and I think my wife felt better knowing that I'd be doing what I normally did - it's probably different for each person but I quite understand Sharp getting on with his life, that's what you have to do if you want to hold on to sanity in times of extreme stress.
