United - City`s Continuity Problem?

It`s interesting to note that in the newspapers, this morning, Sir Alex Ferguson chose to indicate that it`ll be the same old three sides (Arsenal, Chelsea and United) closing in on the title.

But, before all those from across the city get out of their high-chairs and prams, perhaps we should redress the balance and point out that he hasn`t ruled out the challenge of the new kids on the financial block.

However, you get the impression that Sir Alex doesn`t consider them to be a major threat to our own title ambitions when he`s quoted a shaving remarked,

"They have not had the strongest start but, with their squad, you have to think they will be there."

"I saw the 3-0 win over Liverpool and they`re going to be a big challenge - the power they have with their big lads."

"Roberto Mancini bought half a team this summer and it`s not easy to bed them down. But if you get continuity they will be a threat."


Perhaps in the eyes of Sir Alex, City are viewed as a side chasing a Champions League place rather than the title!

I`ll sit back and await any barbed replies from the City contingent!

It should be more interesting to see how patient some of City's multi-million stars are.

Funnily enough I agree with Baconface on this one. There's no doubt City have the quality in their ranks now to mount a challenge on the title, but this season is a season too early for me. The three at the top will remain the same, more than likely in the same order as last time out. They have a massive advantage over City in that they have settled teams and squads, all three managers know their best sides, Mancini is still trying to find that balance. Despite the spending, I for one never expected City to challenge this season, but with a CL spot secured at season's end(which I'm confident of) we can then push on next season and have a real go at the title.

bluedub, I think next season you will be pushing to retain the 4th spot and go for the FA or Carling Cup. Establish your spot, then push on.
TheFamousNo7
No offense famous, but that remark sounds a wee bit patronixing - don't really need advice from united fans, get that every day. ANd I always ignore it. You do it your way, we'll do it ours.

Well if you're going to go straight for the league title it should be laughable when you crumble and lose the 4th spot. Pretty hard to push for the title with the addition of the Champions League which is supposed to be your target this year isn't it? I get so lost in these naive, unrealistic targets you've been set.
TheFamousNo7
Naive unrealistic targets? WTF are you talking about 7? We will aim for the title this season, but like I said above I believe we will fall short. When that fourth place is secured and the team is settled I really can't see any reason why we wouldn't make a good go at the title next season, considering the quality we have in depth throughout the squad.
