But he said United were NOT caught because Alan Pardew threw on strikers to win the game ... he says the Magpies were trying to run the clock down!

Steven Taylor (Journal): "We can't believe it. We were looking at the clock and thinking it would be a draw.

"We were just looking to see the game out.

"Maybe we got a bit carried away. Sometimes you have to shut the back door. It came from our own set-piece so we only have ourselves to blame.

"I just can't believe it's another season that we have been beaten.

"We had the chances. Everything was at the keeper - straight at him.

"We are gutted with that, but Adam Johnson is a top-class player and he proved that today."
