We'll Play To Win, Promises Fergie

We'll Play To Win, Promises Fergie

Sir Alex, somewhat unconvincingly, insisted that United were going to play for the win at the San Siro tonight. Mourinho told the world he fully expected United to put men behind the ball and play defensively but it's not gonna happen according to our boss.

'I'm sure Jose has seen us enough to know that we very seldom go into a game not trying to win,' he said.

'At this moment in time you cannot split the teams.

'Inter have won Serie A three times in a row and are going to win it for a fourth time. They have great experience, an outstanding manager and some terrific players. So it's a really big game all round.

'My team are mature enough to go and play on Tuesday night and hopefully we can express ourselves the way we normally do when we have the ball.'


Problem is that normally we have a more than competent defence. This time we could line up with Fletcher at right-back and I somehow can't see Fergie taking risks with such a makeshift back four. So expect something similar to the Nou Camp game, even though Fergie stressed how important it was to score an away goal.

Sir Alex also said that the tie could be decided in the first leg which I find a very doubtful assessment - I don't think either team will gain a sufficiently big advantage for the return leg at Old Trafford.

This is the same inter like last season but everyone seem to be so scared of this team and its because of jose,there are no doubts in my mind but what jose did at chelsea was because of the players there,all their players were in their prime,he had players like drogba,lampard,essien,crespo,carvalho,terry,these are world class players,in inter half his players are past 30 and this season he hasn't had a decent campaign in CL,so if we play without fear and concentrate on inter's players rather than jose then we can have a positive reasult.
