Instead of a full-on preview, we’ve put together an introduction to some of the younger players who might feature.

With City beating Liverpool yesterday, United had to win at Newcastle – something they’ve done fairly often – in order to keep the pressure on their rivals. A response to the Blackburn result was needed for United whilst Newcastle’s own lacklustre display at Anfield couldn’t be repeated. Ferdinand returned along with Giggs and Rooney whilst Lindegaard was chosen in goal.

Below, we discuss the talking points and invite Newcastle fans as well as United fans to join in the discussion.

Fourth travelled to second and left with a point to leave Man United four points shy of City who have a game in hand. A side with a more settled look was picked by Fergie against Newcastle operating with Demba Ba as a lone front man. The game would be largely forgettable until half-time and from then on in it provided plenty of areas for discussion. Here we discuss the talking points from the match and invite both United and Newcastle fans to join in the discussion.

United’s midweek draw with Benfica threw up something of a dilemma. United played good, entertaining attacking football however failed to win. For many though it was a welcome sight after the dull and dreary stuff that’s been played recently at Everton, Swansea and home to Sunderland. So, would you rather win playing stuff that’s a bit “meh” or see entertaining football without the win guaranteed? The answer, of course, is you want to win playing the United brand of football, football for the fans to enjoy. Time for us to roll back the years then and give Newcastle a ruddy good hammering…

Lovenkrands shoots

AUTHOR: – Stretford-end

Manchester United failed to score at St James’ park for the first time since the 1999/2000 season to pick up a point in a 0-0 draw. Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney had great chances to open the scoring in the first half, whilst heavy Newcastle pressure early on created a number of chances after crosses from wide areas – including a Løvenkrands header just before half time. United stepped up their game in the second half and looked much the better side. Ryan Giggs spurned a glorious opportunity to open the scoring, whilst both sides had controversial penalty appeals turned turn. Here we discuss the talking points of the game and welcome both sets of fans to share their views.

Newcastle United vs. Manchester United Match Preview

Giggs vs. Newcastle
AUTHOR: – Doron

The disappointment of losing to Man City in the FA Cup can be firmly left in the past as United travel to Newcastle to try and open up a 9 point gap over Arsenal. Newcastle are nicely placed in mid-table but will be frightfully aware that they are by no means ‘safe’ yet. United’s recent record at St James’ Park is good but given the team’s away form this year, that could count for very little.

Alan Shearer: Manchester United took too long to sign me

Alan Shearer

Former Southampton, Blackburn Rovers and Newcastle United striker Alan Shearer has revealed in an interview with FourFourTwo that United took too long to sign him, which is why he opted to sign for Blackburn Rovers. United ended up signing Eric Cantona in the November of 1992 and went on to lift the Premier League title, with Blackburn finishing in 4th spot.

Shearer did pick up a league title in 1994/95 after his side beat United by a point to the crown. The England striker enjoyed a four-year stay at Ewood Park, scoring 112 goals in 138 league appearances – however, could he have gone on to win more trophies had he waited a little?

Manchester United 3-0 Newcastle United Report

Posted on August 16, 2010  by Yolkie  in Man United, Match Reports, Newcastle United, Premier League   1 Comment »

Form is temporary, class is permanent – so says the performance of Paul Scholes and the cameo from Ryan Giggs. Manchester United won 3-0 against their Newcastle namesakes and while they may not have scored the shedload that Champions Chelsea managed in their opening game, the message of intent was impressive in its own right. Dimitar Berbatov opened the scoring with Darren Fletcher grabbing a second just before half time before Giggs’ classy volley in the dying moments secured all three points.
