As soon as the game was over yesterday, Alan tweeted his delight at what was a really crucial 1-0 home win for Newcastle.
And it was against one of the biggest and most famous clubs in the world – Manchester United – with all their money and wealth to continually build top teams.
Rafa is not managing one of those clubs at the moment, but his Newcastle players yesterday outfought the opposition in front of another sell-out crowd at the venerable St. James’ Park.

We scored a go-ahead goal after 65 minutes through Matt Ritchie – his first goal of the season and then we defended magnificently to get the win.
Alan Shearer – well-deserved win by Newcastle
Here’s some of what Alan Shearer said on Match of The Day 2 last night:
“I thoroughly enjoyed that.”
“It isn’t very often I disagree with Rafa, but I didn’t think Newcastle were lucky at all.”
“I thought it was well deserved.” “They dominated the midfield.”
“Lascelles and Lejeune at the back were absolutely magnificent.”
“And the goalkeeper, what an incredible debut for him.”
“Everyone gave absolutely everything for that black and white shirt.”
“It looked a fantastic atmosphere.”
And it was also a fantastic performance and result too.
Howay The Lads!!
