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

The Thoughts of Sir Alex

The scene is starting to be set and United, having recovered from that awful hammering at the hands of Manchester City, are starting to go through the gears.

Two 5-0 wins, in quick succession, have eroded away that huge goal difference advantage City had over us to a more manageable level.

Speaking after Wigan had been beaten 5-0, Sir Alex had this to say about the sudden rush of goals,

"I said some weeks ago someone is going to suffer. We are really hitting good form now. There`s a real goal threat from us now from all departments."

"I wanted the 'smell of goals` back in the team and I am glad to say we are well in that direction."


And yesterday we had the job done without the skills of Rooney who only cam eon as substitute. Instead Sir Alex opted to go for the sublime skills of Dimitar Berbatov and the Bulgarian paid Sir Alex back with a hat-trick, giving Sir Alex cause to remark,

"It was the right game for him. It helps his confidence."

"We needed his height to defend against set-pieces. He has not had the best of starts to the season in terms of selection, with the options I have in Welbeck, Rooney and Chicharito."


Well he certainly took his chance well and as for the title race, Sir Alex, as he approaches his 70th birthday, had this to say,

"It`s a long season. If we`re top of the league or joint top with City on New Year`s Day I`ll be happy."

With Manchester City failing to score for the first time in a Premier League game this season, in their fixture against West Bromwich Albion, is the tide starting to turn?

Bring it on!
