The Thoughts of Sir Alex - Sunderland (h)

The Thoughts of Sir Alex - Sunderland (h)

I guess the two goal burst inside four minutes, set Sunderland up for the kill.

If so the third, on the hour, settled the match, in our favour, once and for all, prompting Sir Alex Ferguson to remark to the media in his post-match interview,

'For an hour we were fantastic. Some of our football was very good and we could have scored lots of goals. But I don't know what happened after that because Sunderland could have had two or three towards the end, it could have been embarrassing. I don't know if we were relaxed or Sunderland picked up the baton 20 minutes from time.'

I`d say, watching the action, a touch of both.

Continuing though, Sir Alex went on to discuss the game further, commenting,

'Tom [Cleverley] has been progressing well now and is an England international. It was a superb goal, fantastic finish. I'm delighted [Nemanja] Vidic is a back. He's a warrior, a defender. It will take him time to get full match fitness but it is a start. Rafael had a tight hamstring but he should be okay next week. You have to win these games [Manchester derby] and then go for the next one. We will try and keep the momentum going and consistency going. Hopefully by the time New Year is over we'll be top of the league.'

I can`t see City being top unless we have a mare over the festive period, can you?
