Newcastle (a) - The Thoughts of Sir Alex

Continuing, seeing as domestic action is few and far between as we head into an international oasis, to focus on the fine win at St James Park, it`s time to look at a few words uttered by Sir Alex Ferguson.

There`s no doubt that one of the turning points of the match came when David De Gea clawed Cisse`s effort out from behind / on the line. If Newcastle had of scored then the home support would have believed that they could get back into the game.

As it turned out, Howard Webb waved play on and the rest is history.

Discussing that anxious moment, it appears that Sir Alex wouldn`t have been too upset if a goal had been allowed, remarking,

"I thought the evidence was that the whole of the ball has got to be over."

"But I would have been disappointed if we had not been given a goal in that situation."


And on De Gea`s fantastic save, he added,

"The goalkeeper has done fantastic to get there, the whole ball has got to be over the line but I thought enough of the ball was over."

But what about the magnitude of the performance considering it was a game the press hacks were intimating we had to win, having lost two games already this season. This is what Sir Alex had to say to the media,

"Our concentration, focus and determination were fantastic. The concentration is important for everyone."

"The way we played in the first 20 minutes was great. We scored from two set pieces, which is strange for us."

"We were terrific in the second half against Spurs last week but today was an absolutely brilliant performance."

"We were on top of our game for the whole match."

"There was that concentration and determination, everything you want to see in a team that`s going to win."


There certainly was, right from the first minute we were out of the blocks and those two early goals silenced a vociferous Geordie nation and paved the way for three good points.
