Alan Pardew: Newcastle did the job on the pitch

It is believed that one travelling fan was taken to hospital for stitches after being attacked with Magpies supporters taking to Twitter to claim they had been ambushed as they arrived at the Sportyvna Metro station at the Metalist Stadium.

However, it is understood he made it to the game, which Alan Pardew's men won 1-0 courtesy of a Shola Ameobi penalty.

There were further problems inside the stadium after the final whistle when several hundred home fans climbed over the hoardings on to the track around the pitch to confront stewards.

However, reports from the Newcastle contingent were more positive as they headed back into the city centre.

The incidents came 24 hours after Tottenham fans were attacked in Lyon on Wednesday night.

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.
