McClaren – It Was A Classic – We Kept Fighting

When Gini Wijnaldum scored Newcastle’s first goal tonight it was the first time Newcastle had scored since Fabricio Coloccini scored against Aston Villa in the 1-1 draw.

It was also the first time in the last five games that we had not lost after coming back form 2-0 down and scoring a sensational equalizer from Paul Dummett on 90 minutes.

Steve McClaren on the touchline tonight

This is what Steve McClaren said after the game tonight:

“People said that United were boring and that we lack character – but we kept fighting until the end and we have got a goal that feels like a winner.”

“People thought it would be a 0-0 and it was a classic at 3-3. It must have been a great game for the neutral. It was a heart attack for the coaches.”

It was looking like Newcastle for the fifth game in a row would lose, but Paul Dummett’s rocket at the death was enough to get us a well-earned point.

Wonder what Jonjo Shelvey and Henri Saivet thought after the game?
