Fergie Jumps On Prem Bandwagon

Fergie Jumps On Prem Bandwagon

The Premiership is the best in the world now, according to Sir Alex Ferguson.

Well, of course it was predictable that England would gloat triumphantly as all four English representative advanced to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The English dominance of the competition is hardly debatable as the Prem had finalists in three successive years now and only last season it had three of its teams in the last four.

It is now known yet whether an all-English semi-final is a possibility (Friday's draw will give the answer to this question) but no one can deny that the Premiership is pretty strong now.

'The Premier League is the strongest in Europe,' Fergie announced.

'For a spell it was the Spanish league - I remember about seven or eight years ago they had three teams in the semi-finals.

'Spanish football was really strong but I think the English game has now reached that level.

'We now have a 40% chance of being drawn against an English team, which is a measure of the quality of this division.'


The interesting aspect of this is that unlike our fellow English CL-teams, United have never been drawn against another Premiership side. We do not know yet whether it would be an advantage or a disadvantage for us.

I suspect we'll find out soon. I have a feeling that we'll get Liverpool on Friday - and then we'll see if Fergie's unquestionable league superiority over Benitez extends to the Champions League, too. Or we might be paired with Schalke.

It would be amusing if all four teams were kept apart in the draw and all four teams were beaten - in a perverse sort of way!
