There were a number of positives that came out of this game for Newcastle and for all the lack of realize we had last week at Swansea we showed it in spades today and although Manchester United has most of the possession and most of the play, it was Aleksandar Mitrovic who hit the cross-bar with an absolutely brilliant header in the first half – and he was so unlucky it didn’t go in.
Newcastle defending a Memphis free-kick today – the defense played well!
Coloccini and all the back four had very good games and Tim Krul was at his best in goal.
The Dutchman had to be as he made a number of top drawer saves – especially after 80 minutes from Chicharito, when the Mexican striker was straight through on goal.
Aleksandar Mitrovic after game – YES!!!!!
It was an unexpected point today, but a very solid and good display from Newcastle.
Our players showed real guts and courage today – we are so proud of them.
