'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Sir Alex on 3-2 win

At 2-0 down with only 45-minutes to play most teams would almost 'expect' defeat, but United are not 'most teams' are they! They are the past masters at dramatic comebacks and they managed another against Manchester rivals City on Sunday.

As he told sky sports, Sir Alex 'couldn't believe' that United came in at 2-0 down at half-time but thought United got what they deserved in the end: 'I couldn't believe we were 2-0 down at half-time, we had controlled the game.

'But goals change games and they got the first one and the second just before half-time was a killer blow for us. But credit to the players they kept their heads, they played their football and they got what they deserved.'

The legendary United manager praised his youthful squad, which is starting to look more and more like it could continue the Red Devil's dominance on the English game from the past 20-years or so.

He also got a little dig in at City by claiming 'rough tackling' from Roberto Mancini's side: 'we took 13 players 23 or under on our US pre-season tour. Then we have Chicharito and Valencia, all young players, we've got a really good squad.

'We weren't intimidated by rough tackling, we just got the ball down and kept playing. I thought it was fantastic.'

One thing United never are is 'beaten', I wonder if opposition sides will ever learn this...

I genuinely had thoughts that we were having an Arsenal moment at half time, a game where we deserved to win but it just wasn't happening. Then the 2nd half came and justice was done, even better football with goals to go with it. Football won on the day.

Well what we can take from this game is we're obviously a 2-man team who are nothing without Nani and Rooney, like we were a one-man team with Ronaldo before. Err, clearly De Gea is terrible and will remain terrible for the next 20 years ,afterall, he conceded 11 from outside the box last season, I never actually saw the goals and whether they were saveable or even the games for that matter or him even play but you should take my word for it. Oh! And when Giggs retires the last of the old guard will be gone and we're finished, that said when Fergie retires we're doubly finished and when the debt catches up we're trebly finished and don't get me started about how finished we are when our two man team of Nani and Rooney leave :P In all seriousness, I know it was only 1 preseason game but boy is our future looking bright.

well done utd, you won the charity shield, and it was wembley as you lost the last 2 visits in more important compititions and 1 win out of 3 is not bad is it, still you won the charity Shield in 2011... well done, i supose this is an important trophy now eh?
cityman51
cityman51 I don't think you'll find too many United fans changing their attitude towards the Shield just because we beat you to it. I still define it as a preseason myself, though a very intense preseason match. Don't know why you're mentioning our last visits to Wembley either to be perfectly honest.
TheFamousNo7
cityman51 - its preseason like TF7 says - but it hopefully bodes well the passing interplay and the belief to come back and beat you guys - we looked very strong simples.......
