Newcastle United – last major domestic honour the FA Cup of
1955 – were yesterday reminded, for all their progress in
the past decade, of how much they still have to do,
receiving what is becoming a biannual lesson from Manchester
United. In its way, the defeat was as comprehensive as last
season's 6-2 loss on the same ground. Badly missing Jonathan
Woodgate at one end and Craig Bellamy at the other, the home
side once again took the lead, only to fall apart. Once more
Ruud van Nistelrooy and Paul Scholes were their destroyers,
prompted by the irresistible force that is Roy Keane.
Every time the Geordie nation is given reason for great
expectations, it seems - and last May's third place was the
latest hint - the real champions arrive to put them in their
place. After this latest battle of English football's
venerable knights, Sir Bobby Robson was forced to
acknowledge as much. He had to wait, however, to
congratulate Sir Alex Ferguson, who had been banished from
the opposing dug-out for his furious reaction to a poor
decision midway through the first half.
Ferguson's rage was prompted by the second similar incident
in quick succession. In the first, the referee, Uriah Rennie
- ironically something of a hate figure on Tyneside - was
right to decide that Titus Bramble tackled Van Nistelrooy
fairly as the striker was homing in on goal, but two minutes
later Ryan Giggs was clearly tripped by Andy O'Brien a yard
outside the area.
A free-kick would have meant a red card, but the Irishman
escaped, and instead it would be the United manager who was
dismissed. He had made his view on the tackle known,
colourfully, then kicked the ball down the touchline in a
wild manner that would not have added to his scoring record
back in the old days as a centre-forward in Scotland.
Rennie, summoned by the fourth official, Jeff Winter,
ushered the Manchester United manager off, and he watched
the rest of the game from the comfort of Robson's office. A
20th Premiership game since last Christmas without defeat
made good viewing.

Feyenoord forever... just have to feel sorry for the young hooligans future girlfriend
otherwise, i try to keep track of the dutch league from here, kinda hard though, but getting the monday newspaper on tuesday is sufficient i suppose.
feyenoord is not likely to win the championship though this year, too many prime players left. Team is too young, but who knows what they can manage.
