'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie Is Still Down To Earth

Sir Alex Ferguson was magnanimous in victory, admitting Roma could have scored and that he probably made a minor mistake in not moving Rooney to the centre earlier.

Though United are set to advance to the semi-finals, Fergie is still down to earth, refuses to get carried away.

'I should have put Wayne Rooney through the middle quicker,' he told ITV. 'It was an instant reaction to that.

'We maybe had some lucky breaks in the second half, they could have scored a couple when they went through on the left hand side against us.'

'It was a very good team we were playing against,' he said, finding time to praise the opponents as well.

'I think we had to defend really well at times. It was a good disciplined performance, we had good possession of the ball and that's not easy in that atmosphere.

'And we didn't lose a goal, which is really vital. It's a fantastic scoreline for us, and we're very, very pleased.'


Fergie added that they do not know about the extent of Vidic's injury yet - it's a knee injury, with everyone at the club hoping it's really only a nerve.

Ronaldo out wide floating in and out is his strong point. Play Tevez with Rooney up front with Ronaldo wide right at OT please.

Was there something wrong with the performance tonight Paulinho?

He will only get carried away when Man U lift the Champions League.
