By miles the better team.

Ole still needs to go.

This is the first time I wanted Utd to lose.

I'm kidding, I was elated when we beat you in the EL 10(?) years ago.

Cracks were well and truly papered over in the second half, but fun watch none the less.

I admit I had my doubts, but that second-half showing is evidence the players are still well and truly behind Ole.

What a game. Best we’ve played in ages once they scored the second.

We have some top class talent and we still made hard work of it against an average side that were missing key players. Happy we won, but once again more papering over the cracks.

Probably Ole’s Newcastle moment… but pfft, I’m absolutely buzzing. Ronaldo’s the problem, yeah? :lol:

We needed this badly. First half was the usual bullshit, played well but not taking chances, oppostion scores against the run of play.

Second half we fecking steamrolled them.

Hopefully this kicks on a good run of form

I don't care. Ole has to go. We allow teams to bash us constantly before we suddenly wake up. Papering over the cracks is simply not good enough.

Well fair play to the spirit the players showed second half. All sorts of things wrong with the performance over 90 minutes but we dug out the result with resilience. Not a sustainable way to succeed in football but at least we stopped the rot. In a season that I suspect will not be the most satisfying, at least we have one more Ronaldo winner to savour.

Good game overall. Even in the first half we looked much better than the last games and should have scored two before the half time. It is just so worrying that we concede goals so easily.

For all the idiots that slag off Ronaldo that’s why you sign him, for moments like that.

Ole continues to be the luckiest manager that I’ve ever seen in my life.

Awful first half. Fantastic comeback.

We still look like we run off adrenaline versus anything long term though.
