  • Why Are Manchester United Judged Differently To Newcastle United?

    Why Are Manchester United Judged Differently To Newcastle United?

    So this debacle at Man Utd, the uproar around a team that looks devoid of direction, a team looking like they haven’t been coached. Ex-professionals like Graham Souness saying that at the very least Ole Solskjær needs to bring in some new coaches as whatever they are doing isn’t working. Jamie Carragher saying Ole isn’t the man for the job. This is a team that would have gone 4th with a win against Liverpool. Meanwhile, there’s Newcastle United – 7 wins in 39 games in […]

     
  • “A Hollow And Empty Football Club” Alan Shearer’s Verdict On United

    “A Hollow And Empty Football Club” Alan Shearer’s Verdict On United

    Well, United’s game against Man U yesterday came and went. The result was pretty much what most United fans had feared, but the 4-1 scoreline flattered Man U, mainly down to the untypical mistakes of our 3rd choice goalie Freddie Woodman. Our overall performance – in the first half in particular – was probably better than we expected. The midfield worked well as a unit with Almiron tirelessly covering every blade of grass and Longstaff getting back to his best showing why he has to […]

    Man Utd 0 Newcastle United 0 – Of Course Rooney Was Offside!

    Since Newcastle United’s excellent result at Old Trafford yesterday there has been the inevitable inquest from various parts of the Man Utd “establishment” concerning how they failed to deliver on their god-given right to “beat teams like Newcastle” Particular focus has been applied by Man Utd fan websites on an offside incident involving Wayne Rooney in the third minute of the match. Rooney was put through and the ball ended in the back of the net. However, the linesman – who was exactly in line […]

    Excellent United Grab Deserved Draw At Old Trafford

    Newcastle United put on an excellent performance to come away with a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford today, in the early kick-off televised on BT Sport. The first 20 minutes saw Man Utd in the ascendancy, exerting the sort of pressure we expect from the home side in the early stages. However, once that phase of the game was over, United matched their opponents all over the pitch, and deserved to come away with at least the draw. The defence, in particular, stood firm with […]

    Can United Get A Result At Old Trafford?

    Newcastle United play at Old Trafford tomorrow in a televised game on BT Sport with an early kick-off time of 12,45pm. These games are always difficult, and to say we don’t have much of a record against the “red devils” at their place is a bit of an understatement! Nevertheless, much has been made of United’s summer spending spree – well, a spending spree in comparison with most transfer windows under Mike Ashley in the last 8 long years. High profile signings Mitrovic and Mbemba […]

     
  • United Lose At Old Trafford: What A Surprise!

    United Lose At Old Trafford: What A Surprise!

    Goals change games. Unfortunately at Old Trafford Manchester, penalties are rarely awarded against the home side – no matter how blatant and clear-cut they are. Newcastle United have a tricky enough time picking up points at this particular venue due to an owner who won’t invest and a manager who, with little quality in depth at his disposal, tends to take an over-cautious approach. And an early penalty which should have been given to United but wasn’t certainly contributed to the overall result of this […]
