Matching That Lot From Merseyside?

Matching That Lot From Merseyside?

Sunday could be a monumental day in our history.

It could be the day that sees us beat Chelsea and virtually assure ourselves of that 19th top-flight title.

It seems along time ago that Sir Alex Ferguson took over the managerial role and ahead of the clash Sir Alex has spoken about his initial idea of catching Liverpool, the side who ruled the roost at the time,

"At that time the aim was to match them and be successful. That was the target."

"That`s why I came here, to win that title. But once we won it the club took off."

"You don`t think at that moment about the number of titles the cub could win. Getting the first one was the target….and I got it."

"I couldn`t envisage being here that long anyway. It`s an exceptional period of time I have been here."


It has been an enjoyable time but surprisingly it doesn`t mean that much to the boss with Sir Alex seeming more concerned with the clubs standing in the football world when he comments,

"I don`t think it means anything to me personally at all, I must say that."

"It`s more for the club. For the history of the club it`s important."

"It`s like with the European Cup, you see the history of Real Madrid and AC Milan, and then there`s another bracket with Liverpool, Ajax and Bayern Munich."

"We should definitely be in that bracket and, hopefully, I can take that step forward towards that on May 28th."


Just how long can he go on for though?

The man really won't stop until he drops, bad news for Mourinho, he might just have to use a Premier League club as a stepping stone before he can finally take the helm. Hopefully at the end of Fergie's reign we can boast a European record like some of our European rivals. It's a shock that we don't already to be honest, especially when you take into consideration some of the sides we've had over the years.

This 19th title is so important, the most succesfull team in England, not sharing the record with anyone.. However we can take a huge step towards matching Liverfool's european record by beating Barca. Personally I would give up all trophies for this 19th title, it is pivotal for us, lets show them on Sunday, that United is no match for anyone.

I feel the same nordkap, in fact, I would've happily hand delivered the FA cup to City and I still would happily hand deliver the Champions League to Barcelona as long as I get to see our team pick up that Premier League title.

I, folks, would beg to differ but that's only to be expected :-)

Its funny how fickle you lot are. When Mourinho was Chelsea manager you lot said you will never want him as manager of your club. Now you lot dreaming of Mourinho. Keep dreaming though.
