Ferguson Rues Chucking Two Points Away

Following the frantic 4-4 draw with Everton this afternoon, a draw that could have thrown the title race wide open, Sir Alex Ferguson was downhearted when he spoke to the media afterwards.

Talking about the game, he had this to say,

'We had a chance to make it 5-2, hit the post and they went up the other end and gave themselves hope. There was a lot of rain on the pitch - it slowed our possession down."

'We've got to get a result at Etihad Stadium now, it's a derby of amazing proportion - probably the most important derby game in my time. We have to go there, perform in right way and not give away goals.'

'We've thrown it [the match] away, no question about that. It's hard to imagine it happened, how poor we defended."

'It was a bad performance by us, they were soft goals, yet some of our football was magnificent and our forward play didn't deserve that. Their goals were very soft, easy, no challenges on their goals. That's unusual for a team going for a championship; you should see the game out.'


Should being the key word!

Hopefully then the team makes up for it with a solid effort and a draw or win to go with it at the Etihad.

Everton came to us and even at 4-2 down were still fighting, they did actually deserve their draw.....

It was a bad result, it has let 5hitty right into the title race again. A draw would be great, a win perfect, even a loss could be enough, but then it is out of our hands. Title still ours to loose and no matter what, it will be one heck of a game Monday.
