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?

no, what do people mean they deserved a draw cause they worked hard?? so did man utd.. but we got cheated out of the win we deserved
orrible when a goal goes in in the last minute innit lads. and what you boys not up for the challenge? as Taggart is moaning about refereeing decisions again,Is the Pressure getting to Him in his old age?.... and 'the noisy neighbours' THE REAL MANCHESTER CLUB are after you lot, makes for an interesting for being cheated you avin a laff?
Philips didnt score the equaliser, it was bowyer!
fergusons dopey team selections cost them 2 points.thats what happens when you play for 1 nil win.
johnney handsome
Birmingham totally outplayed you in the first half !
Strapping Blue
Shame he's not as forthright when one of the crazy decision goes his way at OT
cityman51 YOU after US, you avin a laff? Chelsea and Arsenal are the threats, not you. Topspur1 who would complain when a decision goes their way?
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
Reddevils4ever89 I agree that these mistakes need to be sorted but its very reassuring knowing that when were playing bad we're still top of the league!

the Famous no7 look at the table we are LEVEL ON points AND WE HAVE A BETTER EQUIPED SQUAD then you lot, to make a real go of it, if we dont win the title this year, It's no big deal as the top4 was the priority BUT we WILL WIN IT SOON and that BANNER COMES DOWN IN A BLAZE OF FLAMES.... the future is bright the future is BLUE....
^^ you too dumb to see the games played column?
come thefamousno7 i am with you for good for some reason i don't know why
shut your face cityman51 because if you are a city supporter which doubt you are stop commenting because you are our enimies and i am only 9 as red boy knows and red boy is the best for god sakes he is the best i can't help talking about i don't know why this is the longest comment i have ever done and i mean ever done
i love myself for some reason watch out thefamousno7 i am right behind you and i mean it
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.... CTID
Only 9 eh bart? Well son, IQ isn't everything.
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,
