Hope he has this face after the game
Sir Alex Ferguson reckons Tuesday’s game again Newcastle could be a ‘defining result’ for Manchester United.

Having just been turned over by Manchester City in the FA Cup, I suspect Man Utd will arrive at St James’ Park on Tuesday in what you might call a ‘bad mood’.

They will certainly be up for it and I think we’ll have to play out of our skins to get anything from the game.

Man Utd’s perpetual gum-chewing manager said:

The Newcastle game is even more important than the matches we have just had, because it comes in a week when we also play Everton at home and that will leave us with only four games left – starting at Arsenal.

So the Newcastle match is that crucial and we are well aware that it is a game we have to win.

We have had some defining results there and big wins in fantastic, high-scoring matches and we need another.

But we also once got slaughtered 5-0 at Newcastle – they are still selling the videos of that match up there!(more…)
