Highlights of this afternoon’s game between Manchester United and Newcastle United at Old Trafford.

Manchester United v Newcastle United full match video.

Post match interviews.

The Silver Supremo thinks we should have got something after taking the game to them, and felt Manchester United last two goals we “poor”

Old purple nose thought his boys were “phenomenal” but had his usual carp. This time it was about the Simpson / Jonny Evans own goal which he thought shouldn’t have been allowed by Wirral Whistler, Mike Dean. He also conceeded that Man U can’t go on like Keegan’s Entertainers, ie letting the other side score three, but putting four past them.

  1. Was it a mistake to take Ba and Cisse off? I didn’t see much of the game as my broad band kept freezing(copper wire)

    “Was it a mistake to take Ba and Cisse off?”

    Fatash, pulling off Cisse for Sammyobi was highly debatable unless there was something wrong with Cisse. He was doing very well out of position and even without his goal, he was having a good game overall. Ba wasn’t doing badly either though he didn’t have millions of opportunities.

  3. Like I said I never got to see much of the match (poor talktalk connection speed) but what I heard on the radio both sides were attacking until we put our subs on, then we seemed to go off the boil. It sounded like we could have won but tried to go defensive when our best defense was our attack.
    Lets hope we do better against Arsenal.

  4. Fatash, it was a bit like role reversal day today for us at times. First of all you had Perch the defensive mid / defender scoring only a few minutes into the game. Simpson was really having a go as well and it was his shot that bounced off Evans for our second goal. Colo and Santon were also having a go too. Having written that, both Ba and Cisse were OK, with Cisse probably being just slightly better even though he seemed to be in the wider role. Of course, he scored too.

  5. I am confusing myself now. I feel a bit better after that performance but we have lost 8 of 10 so I should feel sick. I thought we played OK defensively and yet let in 4 goals.

  6. 8 losses in 10…and the scum beat city.

    If the lads hang their heads against Arsenal, I think we’re going to be white-knuckling our way through a relegation battle to the end of the season.

  7. Nobody has mentioned Ferguson berating the Ref and Linesman. If anybody else had acted like that they would have been sent to the stands.

    It is also calculated, intimidating the officials with 72,000 fans baying for blood and a makeup call.

  8. Er, I just read the match report and they are getting on Ferguson’s back (good). He should be banned for 3 games, but then he would go into an almighty strop like he did with the BBC. Wasn’t Pardew banned for 2 games for barely touching an official?

  9. GS: yes. Nobody mentions what AF does to officials anymore because it’s perfectly clear nobody has the balls to do anything about it.

    “GS: yes. Nobody mentions what AF does to officials anymore because it’s perfectly clear nobody has the balls to do anything about it.”

    But hasn’t he been banned quite alot though tunyc? I remember a five match ban, a four match ban and a two match ban like Pardew’s off the top of my head. I’m pretty sure there have been more as well so they do do something about it sometimes.

  11. I think I got ahead of myself saying we had lost 8 of 10. I think it is 6 of 8 and I was counting future losses against Arsenal and Everton. Now, how negative is that!

    hope little Vurn is OK because he seems to be being played in his proper position now and he can take a corner.

  12. Yes, he’s been banned. Presumably, he can continue to berate officials and never be slapped with a “repeat offender” type of penalty.

    If nothing else, these bannings should remove the manager from the stands as well.

    And what about those ridiculous comments about Ferdinand & Williams? To me a manager calling for a player to be banned for a specific incident isn’t so different from players waving imaginary cards.

  13. GS: in the last 13 matches NUFC has 2W, 8L and 3D in all competitions. Take out the EL, we’re still only 2-7-1. It’s ugly, no matter how you look at it. The only silver lining is that we’ll have some tough fixtures out of the way. But this squad’s morale could be in for a proper mauling just before the period that will make/break the season.

  14. wt @15: they can send AP packing too. Would’t break my heart.

    This reminds of the time the New York Mets’ manager, Bobby Valentine, was tossed from a game. Rule in MLB is you can’t be in the stands or the dugout after an ejection. He appeared in the stands an inning or so later wearing civilian clothes, glasses and a fake mustache. Seriously. One of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in sports.

  15. Oh, and that’s “wouldn’t.” Typically for Americans, I sometimes have a problem with this Eeeengleeesh thing…

    Was it one of those Groucho Marx things tunyc?
