For those NUFC fans who haven’t already seen them, or simply for those who wish to have another look, here are the highlights from the 0-0 draw with Manchester United on Tuesday.
A bit belated, but better late than never I guess….
Hopefully this well deserved and hard fought for point against the title-challenging Red Devils will set us up nicely for the weekend trip to Blackpool. A win there would be fantastic and would mean that we could most definitely brush off any lingering fears of relegation.
It was a committed performance from the lads in black and white last night. They really dug deep and I’m very proud of all of them. They all played their part in a performance that, at times, needed all hands to the pump defensively whilst also creating trouble for Manchester United at the other end.
Ultimately the main highlight on reflection, certainly in the eyes of the media anyway, has been the decision not to award Man Utd a stoppage time penalty. Amusingly, the BBC fails to even mention the fact that we had a penalty appeal waved away, but that doesn’t surprise me.
What I will say is that both penalties could have easily been awarded, so it’s kudos to the referee for at least being consistent. Whether he got the decisions right or wrong didn’t matter in the end as both teams got the same treatment.
Howay the lads! « Ireland praises the Geordie faithful! | The comfort zone? »
