The Thoughts of Sir Alex - QPR (h)

The Thoughts of Sir Alex - QPR (h)

With the title now ours for the taking, Sir Alex Ferguson looked a contented man yesterday afternoon.

Talking to the media after our comfortable 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers, Sir Alex commented on our run of victories that has seen us pull away from a faltering Manchester City, and our defence, remarking,

"I`m pleased with that run of wins. There`s good consistency in terms of defending, although today we didn`t have a lot to do in terms of defending."

"There are only six games left, three at home and three away, and hopefully we can run it out now."


And as for that debatable penalty that saw Wayne Rooney open the scoring and Shaun Derry get a red-card, Sir Alex added,

"I thought it was offside."

"I have to say Ashley was a yard offside, so I can understand QPR being angry and disappointed."

"I think their boy had a little tug on Ashley. Not a great deal, but enough to get us a penalty."

"It was unfortunate, but being the last defender he had to be sent off."


Was it a strange co-incidence that the penalty came at the same end and almost the same spot from which Danny Murphy was denied a blatant penalty in our last fixture at Old Trafford?

Wasn't a pen, wasn't a sending off, we were lucky to get that pen
