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

United - The Argument Simmers On!

Three points safely in the bag and you would have thought our gaffer, Sir Alex Ferguson, would have been well pleased.

Naturally, there were concerns that we`d let another two goal lead slip but Sir Alex, in his post match interview, seemed intent on haranguing the opposition for getting back into the match courtesy of not doing much and with a linesman that had it in for United, remarking,

"At 2-0 I thought it was going to be a cricket score."

"It was a game we absolutely dominated and I was saying to myself 'it could`ve been 10`

"So when it looked like ending 2-2, it would have been a travesty."

"They had the momentum when it went to 2-2 but they never offered anything did they?"

"They had to depend on decisions from the linesman to get back into the game."


Roy Hodgson, on his first visit to Old Trafford as the Liverpool manager, disagreed with that and, as you`d quite rightly expect, defended his team`s performance remarking,

"To undermine our performance that much is a little bit harsh. You can make your own decisions"

"The performance was good and we deserved to get back into the game."


From a United supporter`s point of view, I`d disagree. I thought that was the poorest Liverpool team to turn up at Old Trafford for many a year.

Anyone care to disagree!

Im not sure if you mean ability-wise or performance-wise. However, on paper it is a decent side but the performance was woeful to say the least. They can be very gracious that they even got a goal let alone 2.

He's not wrong they didn't create any real chances apart from the penalty and the free kick. If they had gotten a single point in that match it would have been a travesty.

Liverpool didnt show the spirit that was expected from them..But they certainly played United off the pitch during that rare 15 minutes or so during which they scored 2 goals..Football is abt goals and if the game had ended 2-2, nobody couldve denied Pool deserved it.

Redboy - I'd be more inclined to disagree with Fergie. Utd did deserve the win imo, but the three goals aside Reina was rarely troubled, so where Fergie is getting his assertion that it could have been 10 is beyond me. He's probably trying to deflect attention away from the fact that his team let a two goal lead slip yet again.

Fergie whingeing about the linesman and accusing an opposition player of cheating? Never, he has far too much class for that. XD

Attacked Moyes? You have a very funny view on things 7, since when did trying to take a ball from someone's hands constitute an attack?

i have to say mancini seems more stable with his interviews,ferguson is 2 fond of lieing or attacking people in his interviews.the interviewer has to get permission from him what questions hes aloud to ask.whats this ongoing dispute with the bbc all about,i hope the fans money isnt paying his fines for him,while he sets up a cosy nest egg for his family.which is the reason he is still there.

Definition of attack - 3. Sports a. An offensive action in a sport or game. or 1. To set upon with violent force. Mancini's facial expression said it all.
