United - Those Two Late Goals!

United - Those Two Late Goals!

We`re not sure if Sir Alex launched into a hairdryer style tirade or merely sat there stunned like the rest of us after those two late Everton goals saw the spoils shared.

Speaking to the media in the aftermath of what must have been, for the neutral, a thrilling conclusion to a game played at a high temp, Sir Alex spoke about throwing it all away, remarking,

"To lose two goals in injury-time is unthinkable. It is a terrible end for us."

"We had it under control and the game is finished - even when they scored a second. It`s amazing, we`ve thrown the points away and hopefully, at the end of the season, we don`t have to sit back and regret it."


But, Sir Alex was also critical of the fact that we had enough chances, during the game, to have put the result well out of the home sides reach, further remarking,

"We were so wasteful. We could have scored five or six in the second half and that has come to haunt us. They keep launching it forward and you have to have determination in situations like that."

I bet they`re still chuckling in London, those Arsenal and Chelsea supporters who thought we`d taken all three points with minutes to go! But as the old saying goes, he who laughs last laughs longest!

In all the reports on the game , I have not read one that has given Everton any praise for their determination in getting a draw from the meeting yesterday . If the boot had been on the other foot you would not haveben able to watch a TV broadcast without listening to yet another self praising egotistical lecture from Ferguson .Everton gifted you 2 of the goals and showed yet again they have the bottle to get something from it .

Actually we gifted them all 3 goals, two of the goals were the cardinal sin of conceding after a goal and after half time, and the other Distin was all over the place. Although, Man U had some decent chances, thought Howard was very good, although we did have a few chances of our own, most notably Leon Osman in the 6yd box!! Personally, I thought if we lost 3-1 it would have been incredibly harsh on Everton

Ha! ha! ha! ha! ha! By the way, I notice that it's not as lively and not as many postings here at VMU compared to the Vital page I normally visit. No prizes for guessing where!

ferguson gave everton the chance yesterday to get something from the game by playing o shea as a midfielder.i think he is going senile,what a paceless midfield jonjo o shea scholes and fletcher.its time ferguson was out of old trafford and let the team have a new era.they used to call raneri the tinkerman but ferguson is the biggest one of all.if he thinks this squad is good enough the white coats should take him away.he should have been chased years ago when he caused united so much trouble with those to irish con men over racehorses.he got rid of beckham for less.
