LIVE BLOG: UNITED vs Newcastle

Tonight’s live blog will be hosted by Brad who is born and bred United fan. His dad took him to his first game at Old Trafford aged two on the Stretford End in the mid 80′s. These days he’s a season ticket holder, living in exile in the capital. His favourite United memory is attending his first FA Cup Final and seeing a Cantona inspired United thrash Chelsea 4-0 in 1994.

    The team looked great tonight I must say. No wingers so the fullbacks were getting forward a lot. Fletch played as an auxiliary centre back for a lot of the game which allowed them to get forward. We weren’t overrun in the middle at all which was a plus too, but it highlighted to me the real difference between Fletch and Carrick. Fletch was running around, pressuring the opponents, nicking balls when he could whereas Carrick just sits in there and intercepts and distributes. If Fletch can get back to full fitness, he could be great against teams with a No10 playmaker, like Cazorla or Mata.

    Anderson reminded us how dynamic our midfield can be when we don’t have Carrick and Scholes playing from deep. Ideally, I’d like to see Carrick, Clev and Anderson play against Tottenham, although it would require Kagawa or Rooney/Welbeck to play out on the left wing, which would leave Evra exposed against Lennon somewhat I fear.
