Newcastle gave away a terrible goal after 89 minutes tonight and literally gifted Manchester United the 1-0 win – as Wayne Rooney took the ball into the penalty area – Mehdi Abeid got the ball and instead of clearing the ball, he passed it back to Krul on the goal line, and Tim was under pressure as he couldn’t control the ball, and he hit it straight to Young who took the gift and scored the winner.
Fellaini – in action tonight
This was yet another late goal that cost Newcastle points at home, and tonight’s game was another poor one against two under-performing sides – but a minute after the gift goal it was de Gea who had to make a terrific save from a Papiss Cisse header.
This was at least one point thrown away by Newcastle and we had enough chances to have won this game – but so did the Red Devils.
Newcastle should have had a penalty after only 10 minutes when Manu Riviere was brought down in the penalty box and we’d like for the referee to explain how that wasn’t a penalty.
Wayne Rooney seemed to think he was offside after 26 minutes and put the ball wide of the goal with only Krul to beat – maybe the miss of the season.
Emmanuel Riviere had two good chances to score in the game, but for the first one he lost his footing when put through, and then he didn’t get enough contact on a Coloccini header and de Gea cleared the ball somehow with his left hand.
The French striker has lost his confidence.
Papiss Cisse missed a golden chance to score in the second half after a quick breakaway but he put his shot wide – and really should have done better.
And Jonas Gutierrez came on in the second half after being out for 17 months and he got a wonderful ovation from the crowd.
But this was a terrible to lose a game and after a mediocre performance we couldn’t even take a point out of what was another dull game.
We’ll have a full report out soon.
