A Manchester United Defeat Still Leads The Sports Pages
MANCHESTER United were beaten by Newcastle Untied in the Premier League on the same day that Liverpool moved into second spot, Stoke scored three to beat Chelsea and an injury ravaged Southampton draw with big-spending Manchester City.
And all the papers lead with Manchester United and their manager David Moyes. It’s not all over for United, who continue to set the news agenda. The club’s fans will know the game’s up when defeats are no longer the nations’s lead football story:
The Sunday People leads with a picture of Moyes and news that Luis Suarez plays for Uruguay.
The Sunday Express says ‘Moysie’ is upset. No word on Newcastle delight.
Finally, a picture of Newcastle United scorer Yohan Cabaye. But the news of about Moyes.
The Mail ignores Newcastle to tell everyone “It’ll Get Worse”. But not for Newcastle, surely.
The Star had the best headline. But the story is not about a Newcastle win.
Newcastle are once more missing from their own victory in the Indy’s coverage.
