United - Ferguson Reflects

United - Ferguson Reflects

It was another late, late show from Manchester United on Saturday.

Just a sit looked as if Bolton Wanderers would hang on for a plucky draw Dimitar Berbatov snuck one home to ensure the three points were ours.

The goal got us back to winning ways in the league after losing two on the bounce, at Chelsea and Liverpool and with Arsenal only drawing enabled us to edge further ahead at the top of the table.

The fixture capped a difficult run of fixtures before the international break takes effect and after the deadlock had been broken, in his after match interview, Sir Alex spoke about our recent run and also acknowledged that late, late winner, commenting,

"We have had five massive games in the last couple of weeks - two games against Marseille, we`ve been to Chelsea, we`ve been to Liverpool, we played Arsenal in the FA Cup."

"It`s a hell of a programme and these lads really deserve praise for that. Yes, it wasn`t a 100 per cent top performance by us today but we never gave in."

"It`s the character of this club, it`s a fantastic character. There`s no other club in the country that has got that."

"We are fantastic when it comes to gritting our teeth and getting something out of a dead situation or a lost situation. We did it again today and full marks to them."


Now if only City could have held Chelsea it would have been almost the perfect weekend!

I don't know, it was great to see Chelsea give City a reality check. Funnily enough, Fergie is being very modest in saying its the character of the club the reason the "never-say-die" spirit exists rather than his own teachings.
