Manchester United 0 Newcastle 0 – Video Highlights


Here’s the highlights of today’s game from NBC Sports Network – unfortunately it doesn’t show in stoppage time Vurnon Anita kicking off the line and then Newcastle having a three man breakaway when Thauvin almost scored for Newcastle to win the game.

See the next video for other highlights including the stoppage time action.

Here’s one that actually shows the save on the line by Anita and our breakaway – it’s in Russian.

    I missed the game today, stuck in the middle of the sea with no internet but from what I’ve heard we played really well, excellent point and a great confidence boost, should keep Jaanmat out of the team for his petulance and see if it teaches him a lesson, would still like another quality CB and RB cover though.

    Did having Thauvin sitting on the bench do any good for Obreterons game ?

    Toonbrother, I know our defence is shocking and Colo isn’t the best defender but I truly believe he had a good game today. I thought I saw him put in decisive blocks and tackles at good times. I know u r not a fan of his (understatement) but he can not be to blame for everything…

    When Colback plays iffy back passes that go to the opposition that puts massive pressure on the defence. When players lose the ball in the opposition half and we r committed that does the same. This happened today numerous times yet we kept a clean sheet!

    I want a top defence too and I was surprised that he stayed and retained captaincy but all I am saying is that he is not to blame for everything!

    Jail I didnt see the game as I dont have BT and was minding the kids. It seems Obertan was as bad as his worst ever. I have always hated him and cant understand what he offers.

    Played well today…hmm!

    No we didn’t play well today. The game have two halfs and there were two performances today!

    The main point though is we got a point and the defense we’re heroic (like the season we finished 5th) today!

    Kudos to them and kudos to Colo 🙂

    Obertan was a passenger today. He was all at sea during the opening half hour and offered nothing going forward. Hopefully, Steve will have seen enough!

    We played really well, Colo put in one of his best performances for us and even Saylor stood up and showed his worth. Mbemba struggled at times with Depay, but I think most right backs will struggle to contain him, but he did improve as the game went on.

    Obertan was……………….Obertan the same as always to be honest and by the time Thauvin came on we were fully penned in though he should have netted Cisse’s pass.

    A good point and something to build on no doubt

    I don’t want to be too negative, we had a great defensive display, but let’s not get carried away Man u had 83% of the possession at one stage, we have a long way to go. Survival has to be our main objective this season. MA running of the club for the last few years will take a few years to correct.

    I could forgive Obertan not tracking back if he was going past players every time he got the ball, but he doesn’t even do that FFS and still strolls backwards leaving our defenders two on one .

    Had enough of him at NUFC .

    I’m under no illusion that we still need a big, powerful commanding CB. Colo turned in one of his classy performances today where he seems one step ahead and doesn’t put a foot wrong, however Man U are the first team we’ve played without a powerful ST and his game is suited to the type of opposition he was up against today. At least half the teams in the league have big, strong STs and our weaknesses at the back will be exposed whenever we come up against those types, unless we buy the required CB and play them accordingly.

    Possibly up against Giroud next week.

    nonsense, we have had one bad display from our first 3 games which have all been tough games and Mcclaren is still trying to find out his best team. Don’t think are too far away from being a top half team comfortably.

    Can I start by saying I thought we could win today.
    I am hopeful. We have not improved hugely, but we may just have stopped getting worse.
    The starting point for this would be an admission that we were not a top ten side that misfired last season. We were crud, and people who said we were crud were right.
    Unless we can get our heads around this, we won’t ever get our heads around how big steps forward now might seem like little ones.
    Unless huge changes were made we were going to be relegation fodder this season. We are coming from a very low base and £50m is only going to stabilise that. It may every well take three windows to put right, and we need to keep on the pressure for the club to at last walk the walk and not just talk the talk.
    It’s no good saying ‘we should have lost.” We didn’t, and that is a creditable result and I WILL be watching it again on MOTD, because it was also a courageous one.
    Other clubs have strengthened too. We won’t be top ten unless we improve in all areas.
    Today was a Dunkirk moment. Not being wiped out was a victory of sorts and we aren’t bottom of the league.
    That’s where we are, and what we can recover from.

    We dealt with crosses and corners well today but we had 3 centre backs playing. That won’t usually be the case. The real test for the defence will come when it’s Mbemba and Colo against a guy with ariel presence as that’s where both might struggle. Benteke or Lukaku could destroy them. Of course we can throw Taylor in whenever we come across a big man.

    It was a small victory but something to build off. Seeings as how poor we have been everything is baby steps now as it’s now down to how long it takes everything SM is trying to do to take hold and only then will we see the true reflection of how things have changed

    Apart from Obertan at his usual performance.

    The NEW JONAS – MR …Colback. (Hard-worker)

    Sissoko will be back ..to replace Obertan…

    More Attack Less Defense (Sissoko for Colback or Obertan)

    People singing the praises (deservedly) of Colo are forgetting Steven Taylors stalwart performance which was all the more remarkable considering the time he’s spent out .
    The difference Alessandro Schoenmaker is making is noticeable although the team was flagging they kept going to the end.

    Mbemba also delivered that great cross from which Mitro hit the bar. I think he should continue a RB and put Janmaat on the bench. He has been poor this year and preseason.

    Jib,

    As Yo said earlier, Colo was playing with a partner he knows and trusts, and one who complements him. I wouldn’t mind this back four against Arsenal while Janmaat learns we would rather have the whole of anyone than half of him.
    Man Utd aren’t good in the air, and didn’t pummel us that way, but Taylor did far better than okay.

    nonsense?? Every club has strengthened and we were so far behind most. But your right S mc is still searching for his best team, we will really struggle against teams with pace.
    At least we’re going in the right direction.

    Saylor had his usual game, heroic blocks but terrible passing, the number of times he passed straight to opposition and that dodgy back pass to Krul almost cost us.

    Think we need Tiote (or a replacement) in place of Colback who in all honesty is just a grafter
    Haidara was a bit better today
    Mitrovic is going to need service so Thauvin and Sissoko need to start putting crosses in

    I like the look of Mito – his first touch could be improved though

    All in all a decent point against a team that has spent over £250 million in last year and a bit !!!

    Perez was also very good. The travelling fans gave him an ovation, and that is an informed opinion.
    I would also rather have the whole of him than half of Sissoko. I hope Perez and Thauvin start next week.

    mindshaft,

    I agree with all of that. Taylor is very good in Alamo scenarios, but his passing stinks.
    I thought Colback appeared to be playing along side Wijnaldum today, with Anita screening the defence.
    If Colback is going to play there, someone else needs to play there.

    Still think we were miles behind as far as defensive positioning and organisation of our whole team. The whole structure of our team last year was patheric (During second half of the season)

    Don’t get me wrong, at the minute I still have us outside the top 10 currently but I don;t see why we can’t compete for top half at least especially if we bring in a top class centre back. Looking at our subsitute bench today, its the most depth I’ve seen us have since I can remember.

    one thing that needs sortin and has been something that has royally pissed me off for a few years is set piece deliveries….every week we see them same crap free kicks and corners either hittin the first man,ballooning over the top of everyone or just kickin it out of play….need to work a lot harder on that or change the takers coz its vital part of the modern game these days and that means we miss great oppertunities to put teams under pressure

    Coloccini, Taylor and Williamson are under-estimated in my opinion, not that they are above average but not as bad as many make out. they can do a job. a team is the sum of the parts and a few average players can do ok in a team that plays as a team even if it’s just sticking to the basics.

    Obertan actually tracked back well in the first half and made a few good interceptions however going forward he was a disgrace. He is scared of the ball and doesn’t want it although he makes runs (when he has no other choice) that generally can’t be found with a pass. He also hides behind his marker and when he does get the ball wants to get rid as quickly as possible. Even today trying to give it to mbemba who is a bloody cb instead of taking some responsibility as the winger to deliver the ball. Utter disgrace of a player and should not be anywhere near the premier league.

    Dunkirk moment was perhaps the last game of last season but creditable and courageous it certainly was.

    Still wonder if the disallowed Rooney goal at a very crucial stage of the match might not have brought us down to the Swansea game level but hey it didn’t and on such moments momentum can be built but we need to remember this in next few difficult fixtures as we are as likely to go back off course.

    Most pleasing feature was that despite our poor record at OT and in recent away games and especially following last week’s showing the coaches managed to knit something together. You would hope that as players and McClaren’s systems bed in, confidence grows and fixtures get a little easier we have a platform to sustain us.

    Any guesses as to what CC team will be for next week. Mine is that McClaren will put out a team to “get the job done” whatever he feels that means. At home and in early rounds you wouldn’t think it would be too tasking a job.

    Thought Mitrovic was awesome today like Cisse had next to fcuk all to feed off but worked his a$$ off defended well and gave us an outlet.

    on the whole we played poor but good defending and UTD being useless up top got us the point. If Fellani was available no doubt he would of banged in a header luckily Utd only had 1 person in their team with an Arial threat (Smalling) who still managed to hit the post.

    Our passing was shocking today, how many times did we give it away? there was also alot more hoofing today not just clearances. Hopefully Thauvin starts next game Oba is beyond useless has no interest at trying to take his man just looks to pass back.
