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

Ferguson`s Views!

After having made eight changes to the starting eleven that walloped Bolton Wanderers, on Saturday, the side lacked a little fluency last night in Lisbon.

Trailing 1-0, it was left to the old master, Ryan Giggs, to rescue a point for us. Now in his thirty-seventh year, Giggs produced a peach of a goal to cheer the travelling support, a goal that produced the following praise from Sir Alex Ferguson, who remarked,

"It was a great goal - terrific quality."

But Sir Alex did have some reservations about the Welshman, commenting,

"I felt in the early part of the match he perhaps sat too deep in midfield, but when he got in behind them, in their central midfield area, he was a real threat to them. His goal was exactly that - he got his goal by getting in behind their midfield."

Having drawn level, United looked far more comfortable and could have snatched a winner, with Sir Alex further adding,

"I think once we scored we played well. I thought our possession in the first half was too cautious but once Ryan scored, I thought we played much better. In the second half we had more opportunities."

In hindsight, I`d settle for the point, how about you?

1-1 draw away is never a bad result, despite the fact that it was a very winnable game. I still think though that if we was going to rest the squad for the Chelsea game then why didn't we rest Rooney and give Berby and/or Owen a go. With regards to Giggs, towards the end of last season he looked great in the more central role, it wasn't his best performance yesterday but it just goes to show how influential he is.
