Toon 1 Man Utd 5
Oh, this hurts so much.... Humiliation, capitulation (again) but most of all today was painful.
At this rate we are going down with the mackems - and rightly so.
Even the most optimistic of Toon fans won't have expected anything other that a defeat, but this was catastrophic even by our standards. I joked at half time that Harper was sent on because Given's back would be getting sore, picking the ball out of the net. It wasn't so much a joke as a prophecy. Manure have put eleven past us in the last month... and the one reply that we did have was iffy to say the least. The worst thing about a truly awful day? Saha scoring the fifth - a player that was jettisoned by us for not being good enough. Tragic or laughable...
As for Barton - if there was any justice in the world he would be locked up for fraud as well as the ABH. He's now masquerading as a Premiership footballer.
