United - Sailing Close to the Wind?

He may be confined to the stands for Premier League games but we reckon Sir Alex Ferguson will be itching to return to the dug-out for our Champions League clash with Chelsea next week.

As the build up to the tie starts, although there is the small matter of a Premier League visit to West Ham to contemplate first, Sir Alex has, once again, started his infamous mind-games.

Having recently lost at Stamford Bridge, and with Sir Alex incurring the aforementioned ban, the boss has once again chosen to sail close to the wind with some remarks that have, naturally, found their way into the tabloid press this morning.

Sir Alex seems to have a bee in his bonnet about certain decisions that haven`t gone our way in recent encounters with Chelsea and when asked how United could turn around their fortunes against the London club, remarked,

"I think it`s quite simple."

"In the last few games, we have had terrible decisions against us. You have to be careful you don`t have paranoia about it."

"Ability-wise we`re a good team. We played exceptionally well at Chelsea the last game. We were very, very unlucky. We didn`t deserve to lose."


Although not quite stepping over the line, Sir Alex sails pretty close to doing so and continues with another quote that has a bash against the prohibition of so-called free speech, further commenting,

"If you speak your mind, it`s a problem in the game."

"They are very strong in supporting the referees. In a way I totally agree with that. But there has to be fair comment also. I think I try to do that."


Fair comment, I think that will be judged by which side of the fence you sit on, ours or that of the opposition!

I think it's fair to say bad decisions have gone against us when play Chelsea but I think it's also fair to say that we've had decisions for for us as well. I think the only significant decision that robbed us of what would've been a deserved result was the 1-0 win where a freekick which was never a freekick was given and to add insult to injury a fould was committed in our box whilst defending and once again the officials missed it. As for the other 2 games since then Chelsea deserved their wins.
