Newcastle United 0-3 Manchester United – Premier League – 7th October 2012

Man Utd outclassed Newcastle at St James’ Park on Sunday, a result which sends the Red Devils into second place in the table, four points behind leaders Chelsea.

The visitors were 2-0 up within the first 15 minutes, courtesy of headers from Jonny Evans and Patrice Evra after corners. Alan Pardew’s men struggled to get themselves into the game and eventually United made it 3-0 when, on 71 minutes, a Tom Cleverley pass meant for Robin Van Persie, flew into the net.

Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse failed to gel up front for the Magpies who’ll be hoping for a better performance next time out.

    No mention of the stonewall pen or the blatant goal that was disallowed? Yet when it happened in the Everton vs Newcastle game it was mentioned.

    Didn’t realise this was a Man Utd blog.

  2. Rich says:

    The end result seemed fair to a point, but after 15 minutes of crap Newcastle played very well for the next 50 minutes or so. Faded towards the end, but I don’t think we were bad at all.

    Disappointed in Van Persie’s attitude too.

  3. Mike says:


    No mention on check tiote not getting sent off for his disgusting tackle on Cleverly either, and how exactly was that a blatant goal that was disallowed, 3 replays still didnt show wether or not it fully crossed the line, so ya not really blatant

    @Iksee I see you’re pretty quick to forget the point Newcastle stole at Old Trafford last year after Ben Afra’s dive won a penalty and a Hernandez goal was incorrectly ruled offsides. Funny how nobody ever talks about that

  6. Dontworry says:

    Or we could say Cleverley ment it, If it was Oscar everyone would be running mad

  7. Mustafa says:

    What is this stonewall pen I hear of?

  8. Iksee says:

    Wrote a whole reply to Mike, King and Mustafa till I got a gpu driver failure which froze my web browser, which I can’t be bothered to type again so I will just write a general response.

    My whole first comment wasn’t a bitter we got robbed post, it was to point out the fact in another recent game when there were controversies they were pointed out in the article. Yet in this one because they are obviously ignored due to the enormous bias the writer has, so I ask when did this become a Man Utd blog?

    Did you see Tiote throwing a wobbler too?? It was brilliant, he doesn’t often lose his cool (thankfully) but goes for it when he does!!
