Was It Really That Close?

Was It Really That Close?

There was, in my opinion, never a chance in hell that United were going to repeat last year`s 8-2 demolition of Arsenal yesterday.

Those sorts of results are once in a life-time and lightning doesn`t tend to strike in the same place twice does it!

But reflecting on the game yesterday, and the score-line, it`s still hard to believe that after we dominated a very poor looking Arsenal side that we only scraped home by the od-goal in three.

That`s something that Rio Ferdinand picked up on after the game when he remarked to the media hacks,

'The game went dead at stages, saying that I felt we created a number of clear cut chances but we left them with a little sniff because we didn't finish it off. It was 2-1 in the end but it could have been five or six."

'Coming out of the changing room you would have thought we had lost the game but we defended well and you have to do that in this league because it is a hard league."

'I don't think we have hit a purple patch yet which we are searching for.'


And when we do somebody will, trust me, get a hiding!
