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

Bothered But Not That Bothered

Watching Sir Alex Ferguson on the touchline last night, it was crystal clear that he wanted a second victory, in a matter of days, at the home of one of our biggest rivals.

Although, priority wise, the Capital One Cup falls well behind the Champions League, the Premier League and the FA Cup, Sir Alex knew that a second win in such a short space of time could inflict a mortal blow on the confidence of one of our greatest rivals.

But it wasn`t to be and although it looked as if Sir Alex was a little disappointed with how events turned out, did I detect a degree of relief that he can now concentrate on bigger and better things, especially when his main bone of contention about the defeat was restricted to having a pop at Nani, with the gaffer remarking post match,

"Nani decided to try to beat a player and it ended up being a penalty to them."

"You expect to see a game out."


Maybe, but perhaps we should also give Chelsea credit for pushing us all he way and once again reaffirming that their transition season might, to our horror, be one that comes back to haunt us all!
