Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has again said Newcastle United are a difficult club to manage, after Manchester United walloped the Magpies 6-0 yesterday afternoon.
Alex Ferguson – Newcastle need patience – Red Devils annihilated us 6-0 yesterday 🙁
All the goals came in a scintillating display of attacking football in the second half, that was all too much for the Magpies.
Ferguson said of Newcastle United after the game:
“They are the most difficult club to manage in the game, gobbling up managers and spitting them out again with hardly a pause.â€
â€œTheir list of sacked bosses reads like a who’s who of football. Surely at least one of that band of legends would have been successful if the directors, supporters and media had shown a little more patience.â€
“Newcastle have to satisfy not only a board of directors and fanatical support, but also some very demanding and jumpy journalism that raises the bar even higher than normal.”
We think Sir Alex is fairly accurate here after his team annihilated the Magpies in a magnificent display of attacking football in the last 45 minutes yesterday that was impossible for the Newcastle side to contain. Two of the goals were simply world class from Ronaldo and Ferdinand, and it could have been a lot worse but for the brilliance once again of Shay Given. We also had 3 separate goal line clearances from Taylor, Enrique and Viduka in the second half.
Ronaldo is still infuriating with his fake dives, when somebody ever get near him, but thereâ€™s not doubt heâ€™s a wonderful and world class footballer who is so exciting to watch. The way he brought down that high ball and stroked it past Given in one simple movement was just a joy to watch. That brought back vivid memories of how I used to play way back, but surprisingly none of my family seems to remember that. 😀
Now we need players like him at Newcastle, thatâ€™s what some of us dreamed about last night.
