Manchester United 1 Newcastle United 1

Match corresponding to the Premier League. Match played at Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney was back from injury aster missing the mid week game and Ryan Giggs partnered Carrick in midfield. A very controversial match in which United played much better than usual with a quicker tempo. The man of the match was undoubtedly the Newcastle keeper that made a series of outstanding saves, two in particular stand out from Giggs at close range and from a Vidic header cannoned towards goal with aplomb. United had the better of the possession but a rather inaccurate Hernandez missed several opportunities. Giggs was also rather wasteful in possession and Young, deployed on the wing, also had an anonymous game. Chicharito scored United’s goal from a lucky ricochet after Krul had saved a powerful Wayne Rooney shot that fell at the Mexican’s feet. He was also later disallowed a very, very late goal that would have meant victory due to a hint of offside. Newcastle’s goal was an act of pure shite from one of the linesmen. Ferdinand executed a perfect tackle on Ben Arfa, so perfect that the ball changed direction completely. The ref points to a corner but the twat of the linesman waves his flag for some inexplicable reason, class the ref over and gives a penalty!!!! An incredible decision to say the least as not even the Newcastle players were claiming one. The ball could only change direction if Rio had touched it, and it was clear much to the chagrin of the commentators and the 80,000 at Old Trafford. Demba Ba slotted a very well taken penalty past De Gea. A late United surge resulted in some heroic last ditch defending by Newcastle, a goal line clearance and the post being hit. United deserved the three points but thanks to yet another cock up by the officials we have to settle for one and hope that the Scouse Bastards do us a favour tomorrow.
