Can Newcastle Beat Manchester United – Poll


It would be great if we can get a second win in a  row against Manchester United on Wednesday night at St. James’ Park.

Louis van Gaal vs John Carver

There are a number of things in our favor:

  • Newcastle nearly always play well at home against the Red Devils
  • Manchester United are struggling for consistency this season under new manager Louis van Gaal
  • With almost 52,000 at the game against Aston Villa on Saturday –  it’s almost certain to be a sell-out at St. James Park, and that will only help our players

As far as the team goes, it will probably be an unchanged side from the Villa win, although we may see Ryan Taylor at left back in place of Massadio Haidara – who could be doubtful after coming off against Aston Villa.

Ryan also showed he is a threat from free kicks and the 30 year-old had three shorts on target in those 30 minutes he played.

That was three times the number of shots Newcastle had on target at Manchester City in the previous game. 🙁

    When you look at the teams carver has beaten when he was caretaker manager Before and now, no we can’t beat Man U .
    They are different gear, carver is in trouble with this one, both on the pitch and in the dug out .

    To be fair to Carver, he can’t play Cisse, OB and probably not Haidara, so his options are limited. It will be a bunch of young guys running around hoping the ball bounces their way occasionally. Mostly, though, they will be chasing after the guys on the other team that do have the ball.

    Big news here mates. Apparently Mike has discovered he can bring in a Filipino tea lady for next to nothing! Just imagine the savings! That money could go straight into Mike’s pocket. Get right on it Lee.

    Anybody can beat anybody. The bookies have Newcastle at around 3:1 against, Man U around evens. So, yes, we can beat them, but don’t expect it.

    We’re still exhausted from the game on Saturday everyone. Don’t panic but it looks like Ferrerya up front with Obertan on the right and one of the ball boys on the left.

    I hope they stick the skinny little twerp in Frankland.
    He can spend his time re-enacting his goal celebration at SJP in front of half the Toons drug dealers.
    He’ll be lucky to come out with both ears

    We could barely beat Villa. I believe ManU are quite a bit better than Villa. Johnny C. better have reviewed his list of excuses.

    A WELSH WATER JOKE.

    A farmer was out on his Welsh hillside tending his flock one day, when he saw a man drinking with a cupped hand from the stream which ran down from one of his fields.
    Realising the danger, he shouted over to the man “Paid a yfed y dwr! Mae’n ych-y-fi! (Don’t drink the water. It’ s disgusting!)

    The man at the stream lifted his head and put a cupped hand to his ear, shrugged his shoulders at the farmer, and carried on drinking.
    Realising the man at the stream couldn’t hear him, the farmer moved closer.

    “Paid a yfed! Dwr ych-y-fi! Defaid yn cachu yn y dwr!
    (Don’t drink. Water’s disgusting. Sheep crap in the water.)
    Still the walker couldn’t hear the farmer. Finally the farmer walked right up to the man at the stream and once again said ”
    Dwr yn ych-y-fi! Paid a’ i yfed!”. (Water’s disgusting. Don’t drink it!)

    “I’m dreadfully sorry my good man, I couldn’t understand a word you said dear boy! Can’t you speak English???” said the man at the stream in a fine English accent;

    “Oh I see” said the farmer. ” I was just saying, if you use both hands you can get more in…”

    His missus is probably throwing his belongings out the window as we speak.

    the riff raff – correct -or as I would prefer the scumbags. As usual they’ve killed the bog.
    A prile of the beggars on here tonight – the usual lot -back slapping each other. Tossers and scumbags.
