Sir Alex on City Game

Sir Alex on City Game

As Monday draws nearer and the excitement levels start to jack up, the football world sits waiting for the top two, in the Premier League, to go head-to-head in a title decider.

It`s assumed that the winner will lay claim to the Premier League title but, as the last few weeks have shown, nothing can be taken for granted in this game of ours, especially so this season.

As we head towards the so-called title-cruncher, Sir Alex Ferguson has talked, to the media, about how it`s almost destiny that we`ve to play Manchester City with so much at stake, remarking,

"I suppose when the fixtures came out at the beginning of the season, all roads pointed to this game. It was inevitable maybe."

"But we are where we are and it doesn`t matter what has happened before - the build-up to the game, who has dropped points and who hasn`t dropped points. It really is all down to this game."

"It will be a fantastic atmosphere and I hope it lives up to its billing. I don`t know how many countries will be watching it but the number will be considerable and, with luck, it will be a very good game."

"I think we are also smarting from throwing that game away last week."

"Yet in the context of our history we almost expected it."

"We make it hard for ourselves. Our poor supporters have been subjected to that drama for years and years."

"God knows what they are like just now but hopefully, we will make amends on Monday."

"I think it could decide the title."


Having been to the Etihad Stadium, albeit in the FA Cup, and won already this season, United know they have nothing to fear and I suspect that al those critics who are inferring that United have thrown the title away may be choking on their words come 22:00 hours Monday night.
