1-0 D. Ba 33'
2-0 Y. Cabaye 47'
3-0 P. Jones 90'(og)
Ew. It's just not going right for us at the moment
Wait no excuses? Hmm could that be because you had a full squad and no De Gea to blame? That aside Newcastle deserved the 3 points and I was saying before the game Ba would score. I thought United were strong enough to win however but look what happens when you drop your in form striker for the over-hyped Rooney. Newcastle deserved all 3 points and it will spur them on to go for a Europa spot this season.
"the whole of the Sports Direct Arena is singing "Colleen is a slapper, she wears a wonder bra... And when she's shaggin' Rooney she thinks of Demba Ba!"
Are you sure you are not a Man Utd fan. You follow us more than you're own team. We are only 3 points behind a team that has spent 400m. For a weakened squad we are doing fantastic. Players just coming back to fitness and a few key players missing. Newcastle played well and deserved the win. We just have to accept it and move on. United Never Die!
Appreciate that 3point cushion United, LMAO!
In Sir Alex You'll Trust.... ;)
1996/97 - Manchester United concede 11 goals in 2 games. We were hammered by title rivals. At one point, we were far behind in the title race. We won the title! 2008/09 - Manchester United concede 6 goals in 2 games. We were hammered by title rivals. At one point, we were far behind in the title race. We won the title! 2011/12 - Manchester United concede 6 goals in 2 games. We were hammered by title rivals. At one point, we were far behind in the title race.... UNITED NEVER DIE, IN SIR ALEX WE TRUST!
United are as poor as i have seen them in 7 years...and yet...and yet....they are still only 3 points off the summit. This is not to be sniffed at. When you look at how far behind Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool have fallen. A poor United squad is still better off than virtually every other club in the league. If City had not been able to blow half a billion on their squad, who do you think would be sat atop the league right now? United may struggle to retain the title this season, performances like this have come along too often. But i fully expect them to take this to the wire and for Ferguson to assemble one more great side to vanquish City like he has Chelsea before he walks out that door the last time.
Of course we trust Sir Alex, is just the team let him down OT: The team play like shit, including Rooney major disappointment hope we get out this mess, as I know we probably not gonna win the title this season, but hope the team surprise me, as we all know we're entering the rebuilding stage even though we did better than last season, I guess all top teams play poor these last two seasons
Best united player out their was Haward Webb But even he can't do it all alone :/ Don't worry mancie's the FA will pull you out like they usually do ;p
@vulcanproject I totally agree with you. People are calling this united side the worst under SAF yet its been out best start to the season in along time. We have 9 players out and have a lot of new young faces in the squad and lost Garry and Paul at the end of last season. I watched Your on Sky sports last night and the amount of United fans that were saying SAF should quit and he has lot it really need to wake up. If that's how you feel then go and support another team as people said this when we went 3 Yes 3 seasons with out the league and yet we went on to win the league, FA Cup, Carling cup and Champions league again under SAF. We can not win the league every year its not possible but the teams that have been up and around us over the lest few seasons are now going through a change in there Squad just like Untied are but we are the only ones fighting for the league with a Squad that has cost City around £400 Million. Now for them to be only 3 points above us at this point in the season says a lot about the united squad and the manager. This has been one of the worst injury hit united sides in a long time yet we are not dropping daft points like the gunners, Liverpool or Chelsea. I am not taking anything away from Newcastle they were the better team on the night but just because we have lost 2 games in a row dose not mean united have lost the league. It is January and there are another 4 and a half months left of the season and Both Untied and City will drop more points along the way. The season is not made up of one or two games its made up of 38 game. We are starting to get out big names back now and give them a few games to get back into the swing of things and we will start picking up the points again. So stop going on with your self United fans and get behind the team and manager. If you don't want to go and support another team as we will not miss you as real united fans trust SAF just like the saying in SAF we trust UNITED we stand.
Kicked out of the champions league too, in the easiest group
@OptaManc: 2003 - Manchester United have lost their first game with Howard Webb refereeing since 2003.” Hmmm..
He was terrible again today anyways, Ba should've had a pen in the first half before the goal but what did England's finest give? Nada
I just love how United fans keep going on about Man C billions. Before Abramovich, it was United who were the serial big spenders in the PL. Every season MU would splash around £80+ mill. Being a gunner, although trophies would be nice. I find it astonishing that we are around teams that have splashed 3x more than us in transfers and wages over the past 5 years. Chelsea, Man Utd, Liverpool, Spuds and MC should be far away from us. Yet we still can see Man C in the distance, even with a squad that is half available.
except we don't even need the owner to have an income of over 100ml every season, compare to the like of Chelsea and City who only make looses
Arsenal are a well run club financially. They do a lot without spending much. However surely you have to question the fact as the second richest side in England (in terms of value and revenue) you haven't won a sausage in nearly 7 years. 7 years and not even a league cup or community shield! This is tragic when even Portsmouth and Birmingham have won something in that time.
I don't see how this is acceptable with the stature Arsenal claim. A football club's aim has to be to win things, not to make a profit? I know that in today's game football is a business and ideally you do both.
But if you are proud of the fact your club is a good business rather than a great winning team then i feel sorry for you.
I would NEVER find that acceptable if i were an Arsenal fan, and would demand better. Being shown balance sheets to placate you instead of silverware and you accepting that is a terrible thing IMO.
Man U are on fire.. no wait...
I could be worse, we could be Chelsea.
Indeed the last team that should be giving Utd stick is Chelsea fans lol.
Hey at least he's not as bad as DavidLuiz4, he REALLY makes us Chelsea fans look bad haha.
Demba Ba is a beast!
Especially for my fantasy team!
We need Sneijder or someone equal to but you guys don't listen and say we don't him then this sh*t happens (not just once) but we should rely on youth lol
One player won't make a change several of my red pals say a lot of players like Nani and Carrick need to be replaced with real quality and I agree at least with Carrick anyway I think Nani is a decent performer even as a backup if anything.
"One player won't make a change" but a missing puzzle piece makes a full puzzle and man utd's missing puzzle piece is creativity. he can fill the gap in that department.
your pals are retarded if they want to replace nani. he's usually one of the best on the pitch!
I guess you never watch Carrick play, you got the Media brainwash you, btw please go to Manchester and watch the game if you're actually from Manchester that is. Carrick is a player that doesn't get credit for his work, but all get the blame plastic fans
United need a couple new players but there is an injury problem right now. Vidic is one player that is sorely missed and he is one player that would make a huge difference. Jones and Ferdinand were run ragged by Newcastle's pacey frontline, i could never see Vidic allowing that he takes games by the scruff of the neck.
However as much as people urge Ferguson to buy it should be left in his hands. He doesn't want to just patch up this team and spend a bunch of money looking for a quick fix. This has NEVER been the policy of the club and Ferguson. Chelsea tried to do this by blowing 50 million on Torres last January, and that has probably been the worst transfer in british football history so far.
We have seen what has happened to the money spent by Liverpool and Dalglish looking for a quickie fix to get competitive- they have wasted a fortune on mediocre buys like Carroll and Downing.
If this title has to be let slip for Ferguson to get the build and balance right for next season and beyond then i back him to the hilt. He will know as anyone else United need players but he will deny it as much as possible to keep confidence in his current squad and stop prices inflating too much.
get the reference? ;)
Demba Ba, Tiote, Cabaye, Collochini... Where the fuck do Newcastle get these gems?
was thinking the same thing, Ba, Cabaye and Tiote was bloody brilliant tonight! Demba Ba is officially bargain of the season
I love this particular Score.. juST WOW.. Loosing two games in a row means it's time SAG to just call it a quit.. when was the last time city was beaten by a 3 goal Margin.. one world.. Class. Thumbs up to Demba ba...
From what i saw today i think there are some problems behind closed doors,Lack of concentration-Miss passes-poor ball control that's all signs of problems the players might have. it's not just the matter of injuries or bad tactics.
Wow... Happy New Year boys... Well, after last week I can't say that this is surprising. It is alarming that only a couple weeks back we beat 3 teams for a total of 12-0 goal differential and it was looking like smooth sailing but the last 2 matches we've looked like a club on the verge of relegation. From the first whistle to the last Newcastle outplayed us, no question. Their defense was frustrating Rooney and Berba and their attack was threatening and really deserved more than 3 goals. We were lucky to get away with that close penalty call, although I thought Rio played the ball but Webb could've been pointing to an early penalty. Ba was fierce and has turned into a fantastic striker for Newcastle and if he had more support he could've had more. Now onto my boys.. ugh... Rio: Besides the early penalty scare, I think he played pretty well against Ba and being his first game back in a while he did pretty well. Jones: Played well but got frustrated towards the end of the match, unlucky on the OG but it didn't really matter at that point Valenica: Played pretty well on the wing although most of his crosses were poor, almost invisible in defense. Evra: Ditto for Valencia but played some defense. Carrick: Poor passing and little creativity. Giggs: Skillful in the center but made it difficult for the forwards with poor passing. Nani: Made some good runs and troubled the defense a bit, selfish play and poor crossing hindered his overall performance though. Park: Uninspiring and gave away possession every time he touched the ball. Rooney: Squandered a ton of chances with poor touch and passing. Movement was poor too. Berbatov: Didn't really make a presence on the pitch, mostly invisible. Lindegaard: Played really well, especially on crosses and corners. Unlucky that 2 out of the 3 goals were unsaveable and the free kick goal would have been one of the saves of the year if he had stopped it. Subs - Welbeck: Had a few good chances, had good movement in the box but unlucky not score one. Hernandez: Caught offsides a bunch. Anderson: No time to make an impact. Well... There's always next week. Come on UNITED!
Now that's a comment! Eh, United will bounce back from this like always. Not sure why people hate on Manchester United when they are only three points away from Manchester City. The only people that should be talking are City fans, if you support any other team that is not United or City then yeah, shut it!
Given how bad Chelsea, Liverpool and ourselves have been this season, Newcastle have a very real possibility of finishing 4th this season (I cannot believe I just said that).
woooow yess hhhh ..
i think rooney was still suffering a hangover from that night out because he was rubbish tonight and dare i say giggs look passed it, well he is 38 after all. this is a game we missed vidic badly, we were dominated by ba and ameobi, tbf we were dominated all over the pitch and deserved what we got.
What the hell is going on with the top teams this is shocking as hell, but exiting at the same time.
Still a long haul before this season is over. Seems people are counting chickens before they hatch.
The gods will rise on sunday! United we stand!
Injuries have hit Man utd hard, Vidic is a massive miss, I regard him as their best player.
are you mental that is one player? This team was full strength
Not really, Cleverley, Young and Smalling would all have played if fit. Not an excuse though, we have played with this team for the last few weeks and got good results, we were just extremely poor.
Cleverly is poo.
Lol at Vidic being Unted best player
poor performance.. despite injuries we should have won this game but when it came down to it we dint even deserve a draw.. firts 2 goals where unstoppable tho
Lol, they deserved to get kicked from the champions league.
@Jihaad_cpt. Yes I think he is their best player, my opinion- since I watch every Man Utd match and see how much defending he actually has to do. I know defenders are usually overshadowed by attacking players so I would have accepted you having a difference of opinion by saying Nani or someone like that was Man Utd's best but the fact that you said ''lol'' just shows what a childish fool you are, if he's not the best player he's definitely close. Infact just look at the difference between Demba Ba yesterday and when Vidic was playing, (I know he scored at old trafford but fake penalty aside)
And as for your comment about full strength... I guess you are just trolling
