16th August 2010 - Old Trafford, Manchester
Manchester United 3 Newcastle United 0
Just prior to the game getting underway, to the rear of the section where the away support were housed, a Newcastle fan suddenly appeared on the walkway which runs along the front of the private boxes at Old Trafford. He proceeded to entertain both the Newcastle fans and the occupants of the aforementioned boxes, to the enjoyment of all.
We weren’t expecting to get anything from this game and we didn't. However, it should be remembered Manchester United are currently one of the best teams in Europe. Better Newcastle sides than the one on show tonight have come a cropper here in the past. To lose by three goals isn't the end of the world.
Though our support only numbered 1,800 in a crowd of over 75,000, they were magnificent, very vocal from start to finish. The team showed great spirit in the main and our general play was pretty decent at times.There were positives to be taken from this game despite being well beaten on the night.
