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

Who Cares About Awards Anyway?

Sir Alex defended United's players after Arsene Wenger had a whine about us having too many players on the PFA shortlist for the Player of the Year award. (Sidenote: the unmistakeable sign of Arsenal returning to form is that Wenger's starting to whinge about everything).

"It is valid to have five contenders,' Fergie said.

'If we are talking about current form, Arsene cannot just go back two or three games.

'The PFA awards are always done early. That has been noted in the past. Votes are collected in January or February. I actually think they should be done later.'


It's nonsense that in the 21st century the PFA can't arrange the voting to take place in May. I mean, what's the internet for? Still...

'In 1999 when we won the Treble, we never won an award. I don't think too much emphasis should be placed on it.'

So, who cares about awards anyway?

Team trophies are all I really care about. If a United player won the award but we ended the season with no more trophies, I wouldn't be happy.

Finally - a performance more like the United we know - reminded me so much of Barcelona last season. Ronaldo's goal was amazing, everyone played brilliantly and put in a lot of hard work. Rooney was brilliant down the wing - unselfishly defending but still setting up many attacks. A very mature performance - i worried when he got that knock in the first half, but it takes more, much more to make him come off. Well done United and let's hope that gives us the confidence we need for the rest of the season. Looking forward to Arsenal - honestly can't call that game.
