Fergie Even Less Optimistic - Why?

Fergie Even Less Optimistic - Why?

Sir Alex Ferguson is becoming less and less optimistic about adding another name to his squad before the transfer window closes on Monday. Why, one must ask.

'At the last press conference I said I wasn`t optimistic. I`m less optimistic today, so we`ll carry on.

'I`ve no idea what`s going on really, it`s very hard to get communication with some people in life. We just have to get on with it.'


Is it possible that we can't sign a player who a) definitely wants to join b) whose manager wants him out and quickly? Or is it just Fergie playing games, not to anger Levy and co.?

The Daily Express reckons today is D-Day in the whole boring transfer saga - I'd really like to believe them but as all the other horrible stories this saga also had many supposed D-Days, none of them bringing anything...

I personally think (and hope) that Fergie is just playing mind games. He's probably got the Berbatov deal more or less tied up (interestingly, chief executive, David Gill refused to make any comments on it after the game) and he'll be with us before the Champions League closes. Whatever Fergie says, he quite often means the opposite for this sort of thing (last season, for example, he said the best Rooney could hope for was a place on the bench against Wigan. Steve Bruce was handed the team-sheet and realised that he was confronted with a three-pronged attack, with Rooney at the centre!) so I shouldn't worry too much yet. And we've got an extra day as well due to the close of window being at a weekend, so we should get him in time.

If we don't sign anyone, united4life, I'm really worried we'll struggle this season. Saha was injury-prone, true, but without him, we're in a worse position. I mean, Rooney, Tevez (yeah, good players, but short, so no aerial threat, and not out-and-out strikers) Manucho (I spelt that worng, I know) and Campbell (more of the striking mould than the others, but young and inexperienced. Also they don't striker me as being that tall.) Fergie couldn't leave us this open up front could he? (Especially as Rooney now seems to get ill or injured with alarming regularity).

Your franchise owners are over £900mil in debt so there's no money in the kitty. No titles for ferguson as he's only capable of buying trophies. M.u.c., see my reply to your deluded comment on the Roy Keane thread.

Lol, alexpant. But it's true - out of the top four clubs, I think only Arsenal could have a claim to not buying players for success as little as we do. Most of our players are bought young and taught the Fergie way.
