The Fergie Steps To Football Heaven!

The Fergie Steps To Football Heaven!

Sir Alex stated that three wins in our next three league games will guarantee the title. Well, that is certain.

United, of course, face Arsenal today then visit Blackburn on the following Saturday. And it does not get any easier as this Lancashire derby is followed up by a lovely trip to Stamford Bridge a week later. So, collecting nine points is nigh impossible but that's what Fergie is targetting.

'We have to win our next three games and, if we do, we've won the title.

'We could go to Chelsea and win in there, or we could lose it there if we don't win our next two games.

'We have 77 points and a better goal difference than our rivals, so to win the league we have to win the next three matches. A lot can happen and the title could do to the wire, there's no doubt about that - it's very exciting.

'This is a difficult league to win and if we have to go to Wigan in the last game of the season and need to win to take the title, that's fine.

'If you said that was the case in August you would have taken it.

'I'm delighted with the way the players are performing and the freshness and energy is terrific.'


As I said in my predictions earlier, I think the game at Stamford Bridge will end in a stalemate: they are too strong at home to lose but we are too sound defensively to be beaten. And to be honest, I'd be more than delighted with a draw there if that means we'll approach the last two fixtures being on top of the table.

Therefore, I must say Fergie is right: give me a last-day decider at Wigan any day. But first let's beat Arsenal of course.

I wouldn't mind if it were Wigan who shatter Chelsea's unbeaten home record :-) Unlikely though.
