Old Trafford-- where Newcastle United points go to die.

Old foes Newcastle United and Manchester United are set to renew their hostilities this weekend at Old Trafford. The clubs will meet for the 154th time with Manchester United having a commanding 78-36-39 advantage in the all time record. Newcastle's futility in the fixture is an idea that is on many peoples' lips this weekend, but for a slightly different reason. The last time Newcastle defeated the Red Devils on their own pitch was February 12, 1972. . . Thirty-nine years ago.
