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

Fergie on Tevez situation (AUDIO)

Interview Length: 2 Min 10 Sec

To listen CLICK HERE

For the second year running, Manchester United opened their account with a disappointing draw at home. Last year it was a goalless draw with Reading and now a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United.

Obafemi Martins opened the scoring before Darren Fletcher's instant reply midway through the first half but despite exerting pressure, they were unable to capitalise.

Sir Alex Ferguson gave his thoughts on the match and admitted it was a huge blow to lose Carlos Tevez prior to kick off, with the Argentine forward having to return home following a family berreavment.

The similarities to last season are staggering...staret with a dissapointing draw at home then go to pompey on a late kick-off monday. Im worried about Monday....hopefully we will have a striker in by then though.

Disappointing result, we certainly missed Tevez. United4life, couldn't agree more - we play the better football, yet draw. We lose one of our strikers, and we also lose Ronaldo during the first few weeks of August. Rooney looks slightly off the pace, and Portsmouth will be wanting to get their season going after that thumping at Chelsea, plus Fratton Park is always a difficult place to go. And with Liverpool and Chelsea away coming up, I'm starting to get slightly worried - Newcastle was the one we really needed to get three points from.

By the way, I was sorry to hear about Tevez's loss. Whatever United's result, Tevez had more important things to think about.

Oh, and don't forget - United's response to going behind was positive - no sooner had Martins stopped flipping, Fletcher scored. More of that please, just avoid conceding first.
Man utd champions
Tevez and Rooney haven't had the chance to play together in pre-season, and we're forgetting how good their partnership was. Hopefully, with Tevez back for next week's trip to Portsmouth, we'll start firing pretty soon ;)

(Well I am anyway. I've just remembered lol). :)

Hope Tevez is back soon, it's a good job we're not playing until Monday. But, naturally, he probably won't be in the best of form, what with the long journey there and back, and his obvious sadness at his loss. Please, let's not lay into him like we did Rooney (against Newcastle) when circumstances have arisen to deny our players to play in their best form.
