Toon Luck Turns Against Them
Newcastle came desperately close to dragging themselves back into the game against Man Utd when 2-0 down.
However, keeper David de Gea clawed it on to the post and survived claims that the ball had crossed the line.
Sir Alex Ferguson: "The goalkeeper has done fantastically, actually, to get to it, but if the rule is the whole ball has got to be over the line, then it's not a goal.
"But I would be disappointed because I thought enough of the ball is over."
We were saved by a blind linesman at Goodison Park when we took a point from Everton with a similar goal, but the luck changed against Man Utd.
But ... looking on the good side ... we took a point on Merseyside; had the goal been given on Sunday it wouldn't have made any difference.
