Newcastle put in a strong workmanlike display against Manchester United this afternoon at St. James’ Park and came away with a terrific 1-0 win and all 3 points.
We now move up to 13th place in the league table with 28 points from our 27 games and a goal difference of -11.
That’s now 4 points better off than we were under manager Steve McClaren two years ago when we were relegated.
That was also our 7th win of the season and we must say before the match we thought we had virtually no chance of getting the win and were hoping for a miracle.
And that’s what we got with some excellent performances from some of the Newcastle players who played their hearts out for the shirt.
That was so inspiring to see this afternoon.
Matt Ritchie got the winner after 65 minutes.
