Newcastle away. What was the score? 1-1
An excellent point gained today to bounce back with after the disappointment of Tuesday. Not for the first time our system and our effort frustrated the home side and their supporters and Dennis' goal sounded a real peach.
We have taken some real drubbings at St James' Park in recent years so I was very happy with a point today and would have gladly taken that before kick off.
We had a couple of chances to snatch it in the 2nd half and maybe should have but we also had to defend well to keep the Magpies at bay. Of course the media are more interested in the 'Souness under pressure'
story after the loyal hard done by United fans booed everyone and anything, so once again we never get the credit our performance deserved.
We have a week's rest now, which hopefully will enable us to get Fortune (calf), Thomas (ill), Hughes (hamstring) and Fish (twisted ankle) fit - all four managed to get injured during the last 24 hours! Not sure what happened to Jeffers or why Lisbie made the bench ahead of him particularly as he now faces a suspension.
