Good game United 2-QPR-0;

Rafael always looks especially good against weaker sides; tenacious defending and then great interplay with Valencia to bring another option on the right. Scholes also looked the best i've seen him look since his return, great long passes to young and that amazing scholes goal.

Missed a lot of chances but we can use those on Wednesday.

I am not trying to argue. It is what it is.
Norwich was denied a penalty today (maybe twice) v Spurs.
They still won the game though.
It's not only the referees mistakes, your team should know how to win games when needed.

One thing we can agree with and that is that football is a disgrace with all the diving and the lack of love for the game or the crest on the jersey.

6 games to go, it is not over.
Speaking of diving....let's start with Suarez.

You'll crack under pressure there John.

Yep, they've been on fire recently, especially Cisse.
If they didn't concede in the 95th min v Arsenal couple of weeks ago they would've been 3rd now.

Ben Arfas goal for the Toon was amazing, I have always had a soft spot for Newcastle they deserve success. Great stadium and support also.

To be fair they are making the headlines over hear. I always said since the start of the season that Newcastle would be a threat but people kept saying that they would drop points at this stage of the season but they have'nt. I hope they get 4th too.

Thats my point. Young dives and there is nothing said about it. If that was Suarez he would of been slated by the commentators and the fans and the other team. You know its true.
