Latest Manchester United News and Results

Man Utd 5-3 Newcastle

The last few weeks have really aggitated me. 909 listeners, people on this forum, fickle fans and generally too many people have been writing off a team who have proven time after time that they are capable of embaressing their critics.

Every team in the history of mankind has bad patches; look at Liverpool and Arsenal in the last few weeks. Real Madrid are way down in the Spanish league, as are Bayer Leverkusen in the German. But the point is it’s only Novermber, and titles are won in May.

Despite bad form, disappointing results and major injury worries we are still up there at the top challenging; imagine what we will be like when we hit form and get the likes of Becks, Rio, Keane and Butt back.

“Fergie should have resigned”
“Forlan and Veron are shite”
These are comments I cant believe I actually hear from United fans, and those fans ought to be hanging their heads in shame. Because the likes of Fortune and Diego were crucial in today’s win, and are players we need in our squad.

It was a great day today, one that answered our critics and showed that, as always, United can’t be written off. The era of domination is NOT over, we are still fighting. Our players have not given up, the hunger IS still there, and we CAN win trophies at home and abroad.

Everyone has seen the game today. As well as the amazing skill, pace, passing, belief and ability, there was also passion. The players looked as hungry for victory as I have ever seen them, desperate to avenge previous blunders. Apart from one soft goal that we gave to Bellamy, we were faultless. The defence (namely returning Wes Brown) dealt with every ball and sent it forwards with conviction. O’Shea was once again a hero, and Larry alongside him was rightly the captain. Silvestre was clinical both at the back and up front, showing his real value and strength for the second goal. Scholes was back on form, spreading passes in every direction, always in control. Fortune played the holding role brilliantly, avoiding the limelight but crucially hustling Geordies off the ball and setting up our more reliable options in attack. Forlan was notably dangerous, his passing and off the ball running had the Newcastle defenders baflled, and he ought to have scored. Giggs answered every question asked of him; a magnificent display full of passion and creativity. Up front Ole and Ruud were unstobbale, the scoreline says it all. And in goal Barthez showed he IS world class. He collected very ball and none of the goals were remotely his fault.

The atmosphere too was electric, better than most early kick off games. Shearer was persecuted by the Strettie as always, booed on his every touch he stirred up the crowd. Twat. “Shearer shearer whats theĀ  score?” followed chants of “one greedy bastard” and “cheer up alan shearer, oh what can it mean, to a sad Geordie bastard and a shit football team”.

The result silenced a lot of critics. I hope a lot of words are eaten this evening and there is more belief in the team in future. The car journey home cheered us up even more; Arsenal, Scousers and City all losing made a great day.

Form is temporary, class is permenant. I hope those ’supporters’ who havent been doing too much supporting of late stop whinging and start believing. The likes of Giggs, Veron, Beckham, Scholes and Barthez , who have all been criticised, dont go bad overnight. Bring on the Scousers.
