Manchester United vs Newcastle United League Cup match highlights

Highlights of Newcastle united’s League Cup match against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Manchester United vs Newcastle United full match video, extended highlights and interviews.

Sadly, Newcastle eventually bid their farewells to the League Cup for another season thanks to two excellent shots from Anderson and Tom Cleverly for his first goal in 18 months.

In Cleverly’s case it more than made up for what was a hell of miss earlier in the game, something for which he received the “hairdryer” treatment for from Ferguson at half time according to Wayne Rooney.

One thing we Magpies can take from the game though is that it did see a welcome return to goalscoring form from Papiss Cisse, albeit from around two inches in front of the goal! He scored a reply for the Mags barely two minutes after he came on as a 60th minute substitute for Haris Vuckic. Perhaps the real star of that goal though was 12 year old Shane Ferguson’s excellent cross / assist, which put it on a plate for the recently faltering Senegalese hitman.

  1. ..And the next game would have been away at Chelsea.

    Fourth-round draw

    Reading v Arsenal

  2. I think what tonight showed us is what a lot of people have said on here – that our squad players aren’t too bad as long as they are played with some of our regular players. I wish we would have the same approach in Europe and not just play a full team of reserves.

    That’s why a lot of people on here get so frustrated with Pardew. He does a lot of things right but takes a bloody half to realise what team he should have put out. It happened again today where we had a much better second half and contributed to an enjoyable game.

    The Man U team had Rooney, Welbeck, Cleverly, Hernandez, Dea Gea and Fletcher who will start a lot of Premiership games and we didn’t too bad against them. Yeah, some were coming back from injury but so were some of our players (and I include Marveaux and Vuckic here).

  3. I don’t fully agree with AndyMac on Obertan but he has had a lot of chances. He gets another chance to start and prove himself and takes up a starting place that could go to Sammy or Ferguson. So, to that extent, he is holding back the development of others.

  4. Paul on the left coast
    “Fed up with the money in football” ! you say ?
    So what do you suggest ?
    It’s difficult to create a level playing field for all and with the increased earnings due to tv money, shirt sales, advertising and bums in seats, it’s become an attractive place for the worlds oligarchies to park their dosh.
    Sure UEFAS governing body are attempting measures, which come into effect soon, which deal with the problems.
    However they must act with caution, as we have to remember, this same oligarchy, who own most of Europe’s top sides, are powerfull and capable of opting out of organized football as we know it and creating a league of their own, a la the group of eighteen.
    Which in fact may happen, the Champions League or something similar, whether inside or outside of the present footballing international structures is an inevitability IMO.
    Of course the attraction of a league consisting of Europes top clubs outside of the present structures would IMO. be a more attractive choice.
    Being they could as owners institute things like salary caps, plus deal with the TV industries from a power base.
    Face it who would’nt want to watch the worlds best football, hell the structure is in place.
    And only a rival league could threaten it.
    Which could actually be an additional attraction, each competing against the other, with a final game between the champions of each league. (World Series ?)
    Hell better than either the European championship, World
    Cup or any other tournament.
    But would it take the money out of it?
    Of course not, the result would be to continue the present trend of money going in one direction, upwards, with players earning a smaller percentage and everything being funded by those at the bottom of the pyramid.
    Where sides like Gateshead and Bishop Auckland would possibly become extinct.
    But then there are other alternative’s and what we can be sure of, is that there will be change.

  5. we lost but we did played well..both obertan and tavernier had a nice game..tavernier should start on right in the game against reading this saturday.

  6. Chuck, it’s complicated but I think the whole thing has become a circus. It’s about entertainment, kind of like pro-wrestling. Supporting your local team isn’t really, other than clinging to the past. Maybe it’s best not to support any team but just look for the entertainment value. Most players have very little club loyalty. They’ll play for whoever is offering them the most money.
    Maybe all this is a good thing, but trying to win anything as a club not sponsored by a reckless billionaire (we have a billionaire but he’s not reckless)is almost futile.
    Maybe another solution is to incorporate a system that handicaps clubs that have spent beyond their means. In other words, today, Man Utd would have needed to beat us by two goals to go through.
    I’m not sure what the solution is, but right now – for me – the system ain’t working.
    Or maybe it’s this endless heatwave we’ve been having on the Left Coast that is doing me in…

  7. Paul: I think there are a few hurdles for a Euro League:

    1. Real and Barca have their own TV deals that allow them to get most of the money in Spain.

    2. Tradition

    3. The amount of money in the Premier League and I doubt the top 4 or 5 would like to share this with other leagues.

    4. The Premier League “franchise” which is getting a lot of new fans in Asia. A true euro-league would hurt this.

    With the Champions League the Spanish big 2 and the Premier League top teams can have the best of both worlds.

    Who knows though, you could be right.

  8. On the subject of Oligarchs and such in football, two of the world’s biggest three clubs financially (Royal Madrid and Barcelona) are owned by fans. The world’s most well attended (Borussia Dortmund at over 80,000 every home game) is 51% owned by fans. All of these are genuinely big clubs with a rich history and tradition, not just a plaything of a single billionaire. The German Bundesliga, where clubs must be at least 51% fan owned is the world’s most well attended league too.

  9. Oops. Sorry, the new improved highlights didn’t seem to last very long. However the same highights and interviews are still available on the new, full match post.

  10. Workey
    As you know looking at teams like Glasgow Celtic , who regularly have an attendance figure of close to sixty thousand, but the reality is most money comes from TV.
    As far as Real and Barca, if there were to be a super league (and they were both members of the original group of fourteen)they would no doubt join.
    It wold matter little whether they were (the clubs mentioned) privately owned or publicly, the lure of big tv funding (possibly ESPN) and playing in a super league would be too tempting to resist.
    Especially as they see the EPL enjoying the fruits of a worldwise audience and reaping enormous tv profits from the Murdoch media empire.
    Believe it, there will be a European super league, the present European championship is just the precursor of what we can expect.
    Anyone who cant see that obviously is suffering from a lack of vision.
