Yeah Man Utd are playing Villa today in the FA Cup, should be a cracking game with all the English players trying ot impress the new England manager (Capello)

Lets remember Middlesbrough beat Arsenal, thats an upset as well.

Man Utd were lucky against Villa, Rooney changed the game for them.

I am more dissapointed by Luton, they should have won against Liverpool, they were dominating them, it was a 1-1 draw so they will get a replay.

Atmosphere was good but Man Utd should have scored a lot more, Rooney could've had 4 goals in the first 10 minutes, thats how crap Newcastle were. I dont usually go to highscoring games, the only other game that was a thrashing should I say was the United - Wigan match I went to.

You were lucky to go to the Roma game, I tried to get tickets but no luck for me. CL games are quite hard to go to, I am trying to get some Lyon tickets right now.

Heard about United doing well (Manchester of course!)

Who seriosly expected that though?

Might have been 4-0 if we still had Big Sam...

Shame about Arsenal and great for Chelsea with Anelka.

You a Newcastle fan? I though you were a Rochdale one? If Big Sam was still at Newcastle, United would have won only by 2 nil.

Arsenal are overrated and their squad is not big enough, Chelsea are looking very strong and are chipping away at the top, only 4 points behind now, I still think United will win the league,

If the future follows the trend then I agree.

I am a Newcastle fan, a bit of the quiet with the current appauling season and all.

It's good to have one team in each league to support.

Predicting would be United for Premier League and same for F.A Cup, although Chelsea will probably make a special effort again.

When is Van Der Sar back?

Van Der Sar is back, he was playing against Newcastle, and you people need a new manager, maybe go for Shearer with someone like Brian Kidd as assistant to show him the ropes. Chelsea are playing well and are plucking away at United and Arsenal, but Arsenal will drop behind now, they dont have the squad size to sustain a full assault on all 4 fronts.

After their recent form(Arsenal) I think so too.

Might sound odd but I really don't want Shearer.

My favourite player ever but I think it's a difficult time, he hasn't been retirred for long enough. His current job is ace and MoTD needs him.

Think it would be better in the long run for everyone if Pearson was manager until end of the season with Shearer going into the next one with a clean/fresh start.

Lo and behold, a new manager has taken the job at Newcastle. I saw 'new', he's been in charge before:

Newcastle have announced that Kevin Keegan will make a dramatic return to manage the club.

The 56-year-old former Manchester City boss managed the Magpies from 1992 to 1997 and will return to St James' Park as Sam Allardyce's successor.

Gerard Houllier and Didier Deschamps were linked with the job in the last two days but the club turned to Keegan.

They're not a big club IMO, not winning anything for over 30 years = failure. The amount of pressure each new Toon manager is put under is ridiculous, the fans set their expectations too high. Finishing in the top 6 would be a decent achievement.

I agree about expectation sbut we are still a 'Big' club as far as I see it.

Blackburn Rovers won it and I wouldn't say that they were AS big a club.

Pleased about this decision though. Ideal candidate really. Beat Stoke easily and we can only go up I think.

Newcastle are a big club on marketing value and how much money they recieve. Surprisingly they are in the top 20 richest clubs in the world.

Keegan returning is a bad idea its like meeting an old flame, good at first sight, but the novelty will wear off.

This thread has came to a dissapointing end hasn't it...

There arent eny other threads about football (soccer) so i think this one shud be revived...

Was reading what had been said so far, i was at the Utd 6-0 Newcastle game too, it was immense.

Man Utd slipped up against blackburn but i still think we will definately win the title and i hope we win the champions league too...

We need a football thread...plz lol :thumbsup:

That pretty much happens all the time ... My favorite team took a goal in the last extra-time minute from one of the league's weekest teams few months ago ... Bu now Steawa is on a 10 winning streak :D
