Just had a look at the final table, and even if they had finished on the same points, Man Utd had a 9 goal advantage anyway. But god, now I want to see a play off for the title.
United beat Forest 5-0 the week before and 3-0 on the last day of the season. Where as Newcastle beat Leeds 1-0, and drew with Forest and Spurs 1-1 in the final 2 games. So goal difference was a big possibility until United went made in the last 2 games and Newcastle bottled it.
Edit: sadly I knew all that without using google, but I think I'm right there.
