Haidara has been good going forward. The crossing from both sides has been shite though, Mitrovic headed effort aside.

Two minutes after we try a short corner, Owen recommends we stop just whipping the ball in and try "mixing it up" by introducing some short corners.

Nice one, Michael.

Livened up after 70 minutes. Mata a bit desperate there for the penalty claim.

Van Gaal has been really disappointing, I associate him with flair and attacking play. Manchester United are turgid.

Awesome touch from Schneiderlin there, Shaw just couldn't catch it right.

Good save, that. Very fast off his line.

Would have been nice to see Perez taken off for an attacking option rather than Tiote, but I can see the reasoning.

Newcastle should have scored from that counter.

All the possession in the world but with no pace or penetration. Pretty toothless overall.

Newcastle, to be fair to them, did defend very well. It wasn't pretty and it was desperate stuff at times but they kept us out and did the job.

On the plus side we are unbeaten in the league and still haven't conc.......

...nah, I'm not going to say it.

Missed the first half. How anonymous was Schweinsteiger? United haven't looked convincing going forward, but Darmian and Smalling look excellent.

United are desperate for more pace in their build-up play and in their front four. Also two holding midfielders are not needed in a game like that, You can play Herrara as a box to box midfielder instead of Schneiderlin and quicken the play up and add a bigger creative threat.

You seriously need to stop subscribing to the Sun Saltire, it's a waste of time and money.

Schneiderlin is not the man to make way for Herrera. Given Carrick and Schweinsteiger are on timeshare, it'd make more sense to bypass the two of them and play the Spaniard. I'd rather see Mata played behind Rooney, but Fellatio will be available now so he's the obvious change for the offensive side of things.
