Manchester United vs Newcastle United League Cup match highlights
Posted on September 26th, 2012 | 16 Comments |
Highlights of Newcastle united’s League Cup match against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Sadly, Newcastle eventually bid their farewells to the League Cup for another season thanks to two excellent shots from Anderson and Tom Cleverly for his first goal in 18 months.
In Cleverly’s case it more than made up for what was a hell of miss earlier in the game, something for which he received the “hairdryer” treatment for from Ferguson at half time according to Wayne Rooney.
One thing we Magpies can take from the game though is that it did see a welcome return to goalscoring form from Papiss Cisse, albeit from around two inches in front of the goal! He scored a reply for the Mags barely two minutes after he came on as a 60th minute substitute for Haris Vuckic. Perhaps the real star of that goal though was 12 year old Shane Ferguson’s excellent cross / assist, which put it on a plate for the recently faltering Senegalese hitman.
