Where To Put Your Money vs Newcastle

United face a tough trip to Tyneside to take on Newcastle and are 1.91 shots with Betfred and Paddy Power to come away with all three points.

The stats are not so good as far as the Red devils are concerned.

Newcastle are unbeaten in their last three league matches against Sir Alex’s men, but they haven’t gone four without a defeat since 1989.

The Magpies are also won nine and lost just one of their last 13 Premier League games at the Sports Direct Arena, and are clearly going to be hard to beat on their own patch.

The main concern as far as United are concerned is that they have conceded nine goals so far, and keeping it tight at the back will be vital given that Newcastle have two potent strikers in the shape of Demba Ba an Papiss Cisse.

However they have not found it hard to score goals, and have three players with excellent records of finding the back of the net against Newcastle.

Wayne Rooney has scored 10 Premier League goals against them – his joint-best haul against any opponent in the competition – and looks good value at 6.5 to net the opener with Paddy Power. He can also be backed at 2.63 with Boylesports to score anytime and that looks well worth a wager

Paul Scholes has scored more goals against Newcastle than versus any other Premier League opponent (9), and is a 17 shot in the first goalscorer market with Paddy Power.

Robin van Persie, who has scored five goals in his last five Premier League starts against Newcastle, is the favourite at a top priced 5 with Paddy Power to bag the opener.

Given the attacking talent at their disposal, I think United are capable of edging this if the back-line can remain strong and I fancy them to run out 2-1 winners at odds of 8.5 with bet365.

    For Gods sake we have a pretty tough match and this is the argument we are having? Can we concentrate on our dear club please?

    Fergie is the boss @ 12:13: “why not play a diamond of
    carrick
    anderson clevely
    kagwa

    with rooney and RVP upfront”

    Why not, indeed ?

    The answer will be that SAF is “loyal” to TheGingerNinja and MIchael Carrick – despite all the evidence to the contrary notwithstanding that this pairing has real trouble when pressed.

    Since footie is such a fluid game, i don’t get too hung up on “formations” – what I’d like to see is combinations of players. In that regard, I’d rather see DarrenFletcherinho in the MichaelCarrickRole and TheWayneBoy/KagawaBunga given “licence to roam” between a midfield trio and RVP.

    This is especially the case if you change the strategy from fitting players into a rigid 4-4-2 system into having no “system” but playing the best combination of players.

    take a bow son.i respect that and i hope same applies to proverb.Peace.Happy match day reds

    @edhardy We can’t have a decent conversation unless the troll stop flaming about, he keeps on posting randomly

  6. Pal Ghai says:

    I aint no oracle but we gonna hammer the geordies 4-1.Waiting for the kickoff now.Wazza is sure to redeem himself today and Rvp will continue his fine streak.

  7. edhardy says:

    I will like to see this lineup
    De Gea
    Rafael. Ferdinand. Evans. Buttner
    Fletcher
    Anderson. Cleverly
    Rooney. Kagawa
    RVP

    Subs: lindergaard, smalling, scholes, welbeck, hernandez, powell, nani

    I believe Evra needs a rest, he looks knackered and is causing his poor performance. Carrick also needs a rest. I would have started with smalling and rested ferdinand but I currently don’t know the extent of his recovery so it will be a sort of dangerous risk to start him. Think this midfield will be good enough to stop cabaye, tiote and ben arfa. If we are able to hold them in the midfield, it will keep them busy and giving the ball to cisse and ba. They will also free up rooney, RVP and kagawa and hope to see good interpositional play from them. United Forever!!!

    I am happy with that line up with the exception of Fletcher.
    Not a massive Carrick Fan but would put him there ahead of Fletcher.
    I would however prefer to put in either Powell or Petrucci – Lets REALLY start being a club that gives youth a chance instead of just saying we do.
    As Cleverley is 23 and a full International I no longer consider him as “one of the youngsters”

  9. Zibbie says:

    DD spot on mate, double roamers with RvP floating and rotating on occasion as well.

    Rooney is ready for this role at this time of his carrier. Kagawa is made to roam.

  10. Pal Ghai says:

    Fletcher against a dynamic,energetic newcastle mid is pure suicide.Your line up looks good but i aint sure fletcherinho will keep us afloat in this fast-paced game where we need our three points

  11. Ash says:

    Ando-Cleverly should start. After a long time I am seeing people aren’t expecting us to get 3 points. I say it is a good sign because we may actually get 3 points. Rooney is coming back to his best. I think he will score today. Rooney-Rvp-Kagawa combo to shine today. :)

    And by the way this blog is better now. No one is missing anyone. So lets concentrate on the game.

  12. Zibbie says:

    4 PL titles
    1 CL tittle
    180+ goals
    plays hard run till he pukes
    plays fb, cmf, lw, 10, 9 anywhere his gaffer tells him
    SAF makes changes through him

    Redeem , redemption from what , having his leg tor open?

    Great like up mate its all well and good mentioning the tom & jerry combo the fact that the two haven’t lost a game together while operating in the engine room say it all, my only concern is that there are more important people than you and me who seem reluctant to to acknowledge the devastating moral boost the two bring into the team, very rarely we get overrun in the midfield with them interchanging position in the midle of the park.

    Less yada yada, here hoping the boss doesn’t drop them today

  14. Pal Ghai says:

    Wazza and Robin have fun, take what they give you.
    Play hard like CHAMPIONS!!!!
    BUST EM IN THE MOUTH!!!!I love game days, go MAN UTD!!!!!

  15. Zibbie says:

    That was copy written!

  16. Pal Ghai says:

    Yeah wazza has to redeem himself after all the flak he got before the injury.People called him fat so he has to redeem himself and shut the fuckers who doubted his proefessionalism.Any probs with that?I dont think so

  17. Zibbie says:

    No probs probve, stupid is as stupid does, punishment enough. Not need to pile on.

  18. Zibbie says:

    Original tough is so tough for most, plagiarizing so simple now.

  19. Zibbie says:

    Imaginary friends as a child are fun, OK and excepted

    As an adult are scary to a societal problem.

    These friends become should be executed, exorcised from ones being.

  20. edhardy says:

    I’ve thought about through and agree with shinji and pal ghai that maybe it will be too much for Fletcher to handle. But I pray that Ando and Cleverly get a run. I will be sad if I see Giggs and Scholes running from the tunnel to start the match. Scholes is the best player I’ve ever seen( and I’m not wearing my red tinted glasses!) But how long are we going to depend on Scholes? We should be looking into the future and see life after Scholes. People always bash Ando but when was the last time he had a run of games? How do expect such a player to have the necessary match fitness and confidence? He needs to play regularly with Clevs because I believe they are the future.

    TROLL definition:

    attacks and flames other members of the forum
    for any of a number of reasons such as rank,
    previous disagreements, sex, status, ect.

    The hodge above well described

    blah blah do no read hahahahaha

  24. Zibbie says:

    daddy left you, mommy is in the crazy house and you are to follow! Shut in only reason your still on the outside. Or are you? MMMUUUHHHAHHHAHHHAHHHA!

  25. Proverb says:

    Pps, stop causing havoc its a freaking blog nothing personal, we all do better things with our lives mind him apparently not much
    I wonder why the wind which took the groupies didn’t take him aswell hehehe, ps it might have ignored the putted
    He showed up there in the hole a couple of time and his papi ignoring him like fuck I wonder why
    Maybe bcouse he thought he would strive all by himself. But nO fuck nO now crawling back to overlooked

  26. Costas says:

    Pal Gay, lol. Only one person is capable of turning the blog into sachu mess. ;)

  27. Red Neville says:

    I wonder how many, or how few, points we have accrued in the last ten games Scholes and Giggs have started together? Anybody have any stats?

    If Scholes and Giggs start together today – I think we are going to need five in midfield to try to prevent them running the legs off us – unless we just abandon the idea of having a midfield at all and play five at the back and five up front.

  28. belfast red. says:

    Degea in nets 2day. Rafa Ferdinand evans evra. Carrick. Clevs welbeck Rooney kagawa rvp. Subs lindgerguard tonyv Anderson giggs Hernandez scholes Wootton.

  29. utd will never die says:

    Accusing SAF of losing the plot,saying disgusting comments about Mike Phelan should be washing the coach and cleaning toilets,calling true Utd legends old age pensioners who are past it when Scholes has a passing percentage of around 90 percent,having a go at Carrick when he’s Utd’s hardest working midfielder
    None of this is constructive criticism its the work of muppets and trolls Shinji Ninja saying that about Mike Phelan is just vile and a clear indication not a Utd fan
    Also the winger formation works when he realize part of their job is to track back and help defensively,if this isn’t happening of course the midfield will get overrun regardless of age

  30. denton davey says:

    Zibbie @ 14:10: “double roamers with RvP floating and rotating on occasion as well”

    As always, SAF surprised with his team selection – TRIPLE roamers with DannyTheLad up-front.
