    • 21.43 Ryan Tunnicliffe’s dad apparently put a tenner on his son playing for Manchester United’s first team when he was nine years old. He made his debut in the League Cup and his father stands to pick up £10,000 tomorrow morning. Nice work if you can get it.
    • 21.36 The whistle sounds at Old Trafford. A 2-1 win for Manchester United against Newcastle. The home side are through to the last 16.
    • 21.25 Five minutes left at Old Trafford. Cisse has saw an effort come back off the bar. The home side lead 2-1 in the death throes of this match.
    • 21.15 15 minutes or so left at Old Trafford as Gosling sees a shot spin narrowly over the bar with De Gea rooted to the spot. Newcastle searching for a leveller.
    • 21.10 Hernandez sees a shot come back off the bar. So unfortunate. Man Utd close to restoring their two-goal advantage.
    • 21.03 GOAL! Newcastle's substitutes combine having just arrived on the park. Lovely ball by Shane Ferguson and Papiss Cisse rises to nod his first goal in nine games into the net. Newcastle back in this one. Man Utd lead 2-1.
    • 21.01 GOAL! Cleverley nets his first goal for Manchester United in 19 appearances. Cool, composed finish from the edge of the area. United double their money. They lead 2-0.
    • 20.52 Williamson rises in the home box, but the ball drops over the bar. Newcastle continue to provide a threat.
    • 20.47 Manchester United get the ball rolling for the start of the second period at Old Trafford.
    • 20.31 The whistle sounds for half-time at Old Trafford as Manchester United traipse off holding a 1-0 lead courtesy of Anderson's goal.
    • 20.29 GOAL! Anderson finds the opening goal for United. 25 yards from goal. He beats Elliott and the ball flies in via a post. Brilliant goal. Manchester United have the lead two minutes before the break.
    • 20.20 Hernandez feeds Cleverley on the run, but he somehow slips the shot wide of the post with just Elliott to beat. Should have been the opening goal for the home side.
    • 20.11 Brilliant ball by Rooney to send Welbeck racing clear, but Elliott gets down quickly to keep the shot out from the edge of the visiting box. We remain at 0-0 in this one.
    • 20.01 Golden chance for Gosling in the United box, but he lifts the volley over the bar. What a chance that was! Great header across the goal by Amoebi. First time the visitors have really threatened.
    • 19.50 United have opened up really well here with Buttner lifting a shot over the bar and Hernandez nodding wide in the opening moments. Bright start to the match by the home side.
    • 19.45 A huge smile on Darren Fletcher's face as he leads Manchester United out. No delay in the match. Plenty of empty seats at Old Trafford. We are off and running.
    • 19.35 Bit of news for you from Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney and Darren Fletcher start for United, but there may be a delay in proceedings due to heavy flooding in London that is stopping fans from getting to the ground.
    • 19.05 Teams: Manchester United: De Gea, Vermijl, M Keane, Wootton, Buttner, Fletcher, Cleverley, Anderson, Rooney, Welbeck, Hernandez////Newcastle: Perch, Williamson, Coloccini, Tavernier; Obertan, Tiote, Gosling, Marveaux; Vuckic; Shola Ameobi

  1. One thing about the heavy criticism Man U received­ after the weekend. Fight Hard Play Better, Well Done

    From Frederick, on Thu 27 Sep 22:53
  2. Great to see all these kids coming through - the­ future's orange , the future's United

    From Politician Stole My Money, on Thu 27 Sep 20:57
  3. Cards fan, exactly what I said in 193 !! Pardew should­ have realised Man Utd would have a weakened team and­ risked a better team of his own. Really earned a new 8­ year contract there alright !!!

    From Joseph, on Thu 27 Sep 18:13
  4. Joseph, I was referring to the comment before that one.­ If Man Utd had fielded their first team against ours,­ then yes I also agree that they would have won.­ However, they never do in this cup. This was a cup we­ should have taken seriously and tried to win, instead­ they throw it away.

    From Cards Fan, on Thu 27 Sep 17:53
  5. Joseph where's jonny ? i bet the soft lad is crying­ in sum dark corner of toni.s bedroom the little nazi­ FTM

    From Blackcat, on Thu 27 Sep 17:52

    From Edward R, on Thu 27 Sep 16:30
  10. EdwardR,sorry so ,but you are the wrong one to call­ anyone thick !! Yes we beat MK Dons,but with 10 men­ and yes if you look I condemned Cattermole myself,so­ whats your point? Oh sorry, I'm not allowed to­ poke fun at the Mighty Magpies eh? You were beaten by a­ Man Utd team with two kids as centre backs amongst­ others,and others returning from injury,you resorted to­ hump the ball up to Shola and Cisse a la Stoke City­ (even from throw ins). You deserve what you get for not­ playing your better players !! Now pi55 -off you­ havent a clue what you are talking about !!

    From Joseph, on Thu 27 Sep 13:45

    From Edward R, on Thu 27 Sep 11:47
  12. SUPERMAN What a dour match , you could have Anderson­ scoring 3 goals if he so desired by attacking a­ mediocre Newcastle defence , who gave too much room and­ respect to the second-string United team.Why don't­ teams set-up a plan to press teams in their own half so­ they cannot comfortably play the ball out of defence ,­ like Barcelona , Real and Athletica Mardid do, that way­ no team is suprising the opposition by neat interplay­ and setting up chances , like Anderson did with his­ runs from midfield , arms splaying out , pushing­ players away from challenges and zigzagging with George­ Best disdained through the disjointed defence to score­ his goal............PELE ONCE AGAIN? Even the least­ known United player/s had an easy time looking special­ on the ball because Newcastle let them play out of­ their own half , too often and too easily, WHY WHY WHY­ opposition get psyched out of playing with more verve­ and aggression against United , just like Everton did­ and Stoke do? Teams don't seem to believe that­ they stand a chance of upsetting United , even at Old­ Trafford, they digress into defensive stalemate and get­ suprised by the mistakes and penalties and free-kicks­ from United.............who greedily accept every error­ that teams make ......and virtually give them a match ,­ which sometimes they don't deserved.

    From Stanislaw, on Thu 27 Sep 10:15
  13. On to more serious things, well done Man Utd kids, you­ played some good stuff , as opposed to the NUFC hump­ the ball to Shola and Cisse tactics. Didnt take long­ for owt above grass Tiote and Bighairirama to get the­ yellows out !!

    From Joseph, on Thu 27 Sep 10:13
  14. at last cisse has scored a goal this season he has been­ so unlucky, good game lads nearly won that lads and­ pardew said the premier league was his main goal so iam­ not botherd

    From James, on Thu 27 Sep 10:13
  15. Cards fan,"lame and pathetic", all Ive did is­ state if Man Utd had themselves fielded a stronger­ team I reckon they would have beaten you. Oh that makes­ me thick as well I suppose !! You Geordies just dont­ like the truth, you think your team is great and has­ no right to be defeated, hence "NEWCASTLE UNITED­ WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED !! Ha Ha Ha ,where do you lot­ get off ??? No wonder the rest of the football world­ laughs at you !!

    From Joseph, on Thu 27 Sep 10:08
  16. Funtastic MANU with wonderful game and i appreciate the­ players from MANU

    From Bil, on Thu 27 Sep 7:12
  17. Joseph, as usual you comments are lame and pathetic.­ Both clubs fielded weakened teams. I disgusted with the­ Newcastle management for not taking this cup seriously.­ We should have been trying to win this.

    From Cards Fan, on Thu 27 Sep 6:14
  18. Man U youth team vs Newcastle youth team... with the­ odd player coming back from injury in both teams.­ Neither side was bothered if they won or not. Pardew­ and Ashley stated at the start of the season that the­ EPL was no.1 priority and Europe was no.2 priority and­ that there was no room or a big enough squad for cup­ runs. So this game cannot be held reflective of either­ team's full strength.

    From Sleepy-Jazz, on Thu 27 Sep 4:44
  19. MANU might have won this game, but bthere is still much­ to be desired. I have said this and will say it again;­ David de gea is simply not a goalkeeper. He does not­ inspire his back line. He is one rare goalkeeper easily­ beaten from airborn dwels. Look at the goal from Cisse;­ what in the world was he doing in the goalpost? Was­ luck not on their side, Cisse There is no goalkeeper­ without some weakness, but this guy simply does not­ belong here.Very surprised SAF does not see it that­ way.Go in search of a keeper worth the calling sir!

    From mbah, on Thu 27 Sep 0:17
  20. Which club should we compare to MAN UNITED !! I beleive­ no one fans what is your­ objection::::::::::::::!!!!!!!??????
