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

red devils for eva no not to dumb, but you will have to play those games when the Champions league matches are starting again and as city will have played thier matches with the europa league commitments as well it will be interesting to see IF Taggart has the nous and resources to play a weakened team or go all out for the CL and PL AND FA cups, ADMIT IT YOU JUST do not have the manpower to lift all those cups so pick the one you lads think you have a chance of winning!!!! imo it's none, but heyho life goes on, as you are not the team you once were, get used to it....

Feel big for mocking a nine year-old fcb? Tad low don't you think? cityman51 have you seen the size of our squad? The only position we're lacking is the AM area and even then we've still got players capable of playing there. Yea your on the same points as us, but with us having 2 games in hand, thats a possible six points to go ahead of you. "IF Taggart has the nous" - Stupid comment of the week.

2games to be played when the Champions League is starting up again, and the FA cup too, where will you fit em in. and IF Liverpool draw in the Cup another replay and another fixture that has to put in the mix..... are you sure you have the squad to do it as it looks mighty thin compared to others in the PL,
