United - Ferguson`s Dismay!

United - Ferguson`s Dismay!

Our unbeaten run may continue but our away record is still pretty ordinary.

Before commencing the fixture against Birmingham, Sir Alex Ferguson had warned it would be a tough affair and so it proved as United had to settle for yet another draw on the road.

But it was a draw clouded with controversy. The late equaliser, netted by Kevin Phillips in the eighty-ninth minute almost proved too much for Sir Alex who was very quick, and probably very just, to criticise the referee, Lee Mason, in his post match interview when he curtly remarked,

"There was a handball and a foul for the goal. If the referee can`t see that, what chance have we got?"

"I have no complaints with my players. We deserved to win. It`s terribly harsh. We outplayed them."


Some we win and some we lose but the neutrals might very well suggest that Birmingham, for their spirited effort, got what they deserved.

How about you?

We need to sort out that poor away record but personally a 1-1 draw away to a team which has an extremely good home record really isn't that bad.

Keep piling up the draws lads, whilst City cruise past you, and by the way Arsenal will finish second.

sure a draw away to birmingham is not bad, BUT the fact we have drawn so many it is bad :| not to mention we threw away a LEAD... AGAIN which is very unlike man utd (outside this season). we could so easily be walking this league if it wasnt for silly mistakes. and man city a challange?? they have 2 games extra and they are still behind us
