Keegan pleads with Newcastle fans to keep supporting club despite Ashley ownership

Keegan pleads with Newcastle fans to keep supporting club despite Ashley ownership

Jose Mourinho lashed out at his critics after Manchester United's thrilling 3-2 come-from-behind victory against Newcastle on Saturday, calling the attacks against him "wickedness" and "man-hunting".

He never made clear why, but it's safe to say he was being sarcastic.

Sports Direct mogul Ashley has even been accused of gesturing a "v-sign" at angry Newcastle supporters when leaving the restaurant, which has since been denied in a statement posted on The Toon's website. A livid-looking Mourinho got players warming up on the sidelines and in the 19th minute brought on Juan Mata for Eric Bailly and moved McTominay into central defence.

Old Trafford was rocking in the second half as United fans stuck with their team and, on the whole, under-fire Mourinho.

"I'm amazed by that but I don't want that", he said.

And in the last of the United round-up, The Mail on Sunday say that Paul Pogba has been told he will not be allowed out of his glass cage of emotion in January, and will have to sit tight until at least the summer. Normally, in all the teams I have been, we used to have some kind of dinner with the owner or the president.

"I beat Liverpool at Anfield 4-0 and I was amazed to hear the stadium singing Liverpool songs".

"The whole club of late has been embarrassing", former England striker Shearer said on BBC Match of the Day.

The support is not unconditional.

The former World Cup victor has been heavily linked with a move to United as the pressure mounts on Jose Mourinho but his agent has moved to dampen that speculation.

One win over a struggling side will convince nobody, but United were hugely impressive in the last half hour and had bombarded the away goal before Mata's breakthrough. His fans did that for him.

"But the players have to take their fair share of the blame as well because quite clearly they can put the effort in like they did in the second half today".

Was this just a change of routine, or are you shaking things up?

"A team that is always very well organised against, especially the teams of the first part of the table, where their manager is very bright on his analyse of the opponents qualities and to try to stop them". Only Cardiff, Huddersfield and Fulham have let in more goals this season in the top flight.
