United - Ferguson - Too Much Tension!

United - Ferguson - Too Much Tension!

I lay in bed last night, listening to the cars driving by my flat still trying to comprehend why a match that had been so eagerly anticipated had turned out to be such a damp squib.

Perhaps the realisation that losing the fixture would have been detrimental to either sides chances of catching Chelsea instilled some sort of fear factor, but as it turned out, in the end, Chelsea were the main benefactors from the drab 0-0 draw.

Speaking to the media after the event had taken place, Sir Alex Ferguson had a few thoughts on why the affair had been so drab, commenting,

"There was too much tension to make it as open as a match as people thought it`d be."

"We had good composure on the ball but needed to make chances to win the game. In that sense, we only had two chances in open play and that is a bit disappointing for us."

"Our target was to win and we had enough possession but that opening to win the match was beyond us."

"City are difficult to beat on their own ground now."

"That was obvious from the way they set their stall out in the second half. They are very powerful and experienced in that way."

"Chelsea came here and lost and if City had not had a man sent off early on against Arsenal, things could have been different."


So many if`s and buts but the important thing is to pick ourselves up and head off to Villa Park, this Saturday, and take all three points otherwise that lot from West London will be disappearing into the distance.
