Manchester United v Newcastle United in the Mike Ashley era has seen eight Premier League visits to Old Trafford.

Considering the overall chaos/disaster at the club under this owner, visiting Old Trafford hasn’t actually been quite as traumatic as you may imagine, overall.

The 6-0 (all goals in final 41 minutes) was a bit horrific but aside from that, you would have taken this collection of results below.

In the eight games, Newcastle have managed three credible draws plus the first win since 1972!

Mind you, I still have nightmares wondering how we lost that one on Boxing Day 2012…

Man Utd 0 Newcastle United 0 (22 August 2015)

(Newcastle are relegated despite also drawing 3-3 at home to Man U)

Man Utd 3 Newcastle United 1 (26 December 2014)

(Alan Pardew ‘masterstroke’ of giving 17 year old Adam Armstrong his first PL start as a lone striker. Papiss Cisse scores consolation 87th minute penalty after replacing him)

Man Utd 0 Newcastle United 1 (7 December 2013)

(A Yohan Cabaye 61st minute goal gives Newcastle first win at Old Trafford in 41 years)

Man Utd 4 Newcastle United 3 (26 December 2012)

(In a truly  mad game, Newcastle manage to lose despite leading three times, through Perch, Evans own goal, and Cisse. Three days later Newcastle lose 7-3 away at Arsenal. NUFC manage to ensure Premier League safety when winning final away game at QPR)

Man Utd 1 Newcastle United 1 (26 November 2011)

(A 64th minute penalty equaliser from Demba Ba gives NUFC a point on their way to finishing 5th, beating Man U at home 3-0 in the January)

Man Utd 3 Newcastle United 0 (16 August 2010)

(A rude awakening as Newcastle return to the top flight)

Man Utd 1 Newcastle United 1 (22 August 2008)

(An excellent performance as Newcastle kick-off season with Kevin Keegan in charge, Obafemi Martins gives the visitors the lead only for Fletcher to equalise two minutes later, but great way to begin season and fans full of optimism. What could possibly go wrong…)

Man Utd 6 Newcastle United 0 (12 January 2008)

(Without doubt the very worst visit to Old Trafford under Mike Ashley’s ownership. Nigel Pearson taking temporary charge of the team after Fat Sam’s sacking and before Kevin Keegan took the reins. It was actually 0-0 until the 49th minute…then a Ronaldo hat-trick helped blow Newcastle away and KK realises the scale of the job he is taking on)

    The special one will be expecting us to Park the Bus, if we attacked them he`d get the shock of his life, having said that so would i
    sit back & we`re doomed with the firepower they have. can`t see anything but a Video nasty

      The pace of Rashford and the power of Lukaku will be far too much I fear and that’s not even mentioning their midfielders.

      • Rich Lawson

        But Pogba’s out,so we’re ok then !!!

        • MichaelMaximusMoose

          they also have Young & Valencia coming down the wings like a Japanese Bullet Train

          • Rich Lawson

            Nobody there to pull the communication chord then !

        • Peaky Magpie

          Different story now,we’ll walk it ! In my dreams or at Subbuteo maybe ! Subbuteo ? Don’t know where I’ve pulled that one from,one for the over 50’s like myself !!!

          • Rich Lawson

            Loved Subbuteo when I was a kid,saving up and then going to Frank Brennan’s who had a really good display of it.I did once make an impulse purchase of Dumbarton tho,just cos I liked the strip.Had a hell of a job to find out who played for them in the late 60’s (no interweb then) ! Think I finished up buying one of their programmes from that cabin that did badges and stuff just inside the main gate at St James.

          • Peaky Magpie

            😂😂 Love it,one of my schoolmates had a similar obsession with the Bulgaria national team ?? I remember we used to have those plastic stands full of little plastic supporters and I almost forgot we used to buy sheets and sheets of tiny numbers and spend hours sticking them on the backs and shorts of the players and when Leeds Utd started wearing those daft sock numbers that took it all to a different level !!

          • Rich Lawson

            Just used to write 2 – 11 as small as i could n glue it on behind their feet,hours of fun.After I was working away from home my dad sold the whole lot,pitch etc and 10-12 teams for a fiver,gutted when I found out. ”Well you wer’n’t using it”

  • Leazes Ender

    I wonder why Dave Whelan called Mike Ashley a Tottenham fan when he knew he was a Chelsea fan?

  • Steve Pearce

    I am still getting over the shock of seeing the words “surprisingly decent” mentioned alongside Mike Ashley…..

  • Peaky Magpie

    Sorry but it’s got eff all to do with Ashley !

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    That’s my two mates Steve and John in the picture good fans who travel away regularly wonder where that picture came from. When I first started going to Man Utd it was five nil or four not good times lets hope for a second win on Saturday.

  • Monkseaton Magpies

    Forgot to say if you do not know Steve or John is there any chance of getting a couple of photos for them thanks for old times sake.
