I hope that under Alan Pardew we will build to be competitive on some level once again.
That Ba and Cabaye are not remembered for their one great goal THAT day v Man U, as Albert and Ginola are, but for the fact that they did it many times.
Newcastle are good but exactly how good could they really be if they added 2 or 3 first team players to this mix?
The other part of me just wants to say, ‘shut up, ten years since we beat Manchester United and tonight we played them off the pitch’. I’ll drink to that.
Obertan’s form has been patchy to say the least but his best form so far this season was undoubtedly up against Evra at Old Trafford.
If passed fit to play then I’d give Obertan the chance to have another go at his old team mate and get some self-belief back.
Only way to enjoy watching Newcastle United is expect the worst and anything else is a Brucie Bonus, the bloke with the chin, not the Greggs addiction.
I’d have a tenner on Rooney to notch a hat-trick rather than the boys in black n white to scrape a win.
The date of October 20 1996 is a landmark in our history, almost fifteen years ago now, unbelievable.
Whether you were at St.James’ Park on that magical day or not, simply press play and enjoy this Mag YouTube video classic.
Manchester United’s away stats are truly frightening, winning seven and drawing two, with nineteen scored and only three conceded.
Hopefully though they’ll continue on from Blackburn and United’s big players like Ba and midfield pairing Cabaye & Tiote will grab hold of the match.
So we have a full house, a night match, Manchester United as opposition.
So what if it buys mike Ashley a few extra roulette chips, as a fan what matters to me is being part of a throbbing mass of people all United in a common cause.
Hardly a fit defender in sight, Rooney upsetting the Red-Nosed one and De Gea less than reliable, can United take advantage of Man.U’s problems?
Facing a dodgy keeper, injuries and naughty boys, Tiote and Ba to leave behind a very nice late Xmas present as they head off to Africa.
The advent of the Premier League has resulted in certain clubs and people getting a bit carried away with themselves, thinking they are entitled rather than having to earn it.
A match of one referee, two linesmen and a team who don’t know when they are beat.
A performance that had everything, from some controlled possession and half decent chances in the first half to blood and guts in the second.
