Sir Alex Ferguson confronts Mike Dean at half-time during Manchester United'

The Manchester United manager publicly laid into referee Mike Dean, fourth official Neil Swarbrick and linesman Jake Collin moments before the second half of his side's victory over Newcastle.

Ferguson was furious after Jonny Evans' own goal in a 4-3 United win was disallowed for offside against Papiss Cisse only for Dean to award the goal following a consultation with Collin.

And, although Ferguson was not sent to the stands, the referee could yet mention the incident in his report to the Football Association.

Speaking after the game, the United boss said: "The referee changed the linesman's mind.

"He said it was an own goal. But if you see it again, and the referee can't the guy is in an offside position, then he pulls Evans' arm. If that is not interfering what is? I think it was a bad decision."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
