Fergie: Nev's Red Was Deserved

The boss was pleased after United won 2-0 at Oakwell to advance to the quarter-final of the Carling Cup. Sir Alex also provided us with some injury news, about Danny Welbeck who was visibly limping as he came off the pitch.

'It was a real cup tie. Barnsley worked very hard and put a lot of effort into the game,' Ferguson said.

'They had one or two chances when we went down to ten men, but in the end I think we deserved to get through.'

'Playing away from home in a cup tie is a completely different experience from playing at Old Trafford. Last year we had some good home draws and it was good experience for the lads.'

'Welbeck got a knee injury in the first half. We asked him to try it at the start of the second half but after a few minutes we knew it was no use. Young Zoran came on to replace him and I was pleased with him.

'Danny will have a scan tomorrow morning.'


They had a bit more than one or two chances but never mind, essentially he's right: hopefully the Carling Cup is a good experience even though relatively few of our best Carling Cup players made the grade in the past: just think about Giuseppe Rossi.

Oh, and Fergie added that he thought Gary Neville's red card was deserved. It was indeed but it goes to show that the withchunt against Sir Alex because of criticism aimed at referees has been completely ridiculous. But more about this tomorrow. See you!
