Continuity mistake: When Newcastle plays Chelsea the ball is yellow, but when we see shots from the real game it is white when we see the actors with the ball.

Revealing mistake: In the game against Liverpool, there is a reversed shot after Harris scores the first goal. It is fairly obvious since all of the players' numbers are backwards, in addition to the advertisements in the background. (01:45:25)
