No Mass Suicides

No Mass Suicides

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes there's no reason for desperation despite the embarassing defeat at Southend. The aptly-named Freddy Eastwood completed a Hollywood-like script with a brilliant free-kick to knock out the holders but the gaffer is looking forward now.

'We are disappointed because our club can`t accept being beaten in any kind of competition, even a friendly, because of the expectation level,' conceded Sir Alex at Southend.

'But I know that tomorrow we can get our togs on and start working again because that`s the name of the game at this club. Not to look back but look forward.

'We`ve had a disappointment but there`ll be no knee-jerk reaction, no mass sackings or suicides I hope, but a lot of recriminations.

'We`ll get panned in the press but by doing that you`re taking away from the performance that Southend gave.

'I think we started a bit slack and they got some impetus from that. The goal they scored was incredible, it was fantastic. I don`t think the boy (Fredy Eastwood) will score another one like it in his lifetime.

'If you`re going to be beaten, it`s better to be beaten by something special. I think it was something special.'

spoken with grace by the big man himself.....one of those games where you had very little to win except the match... if you had won they would have said you should have anyway...a classic david and goliath cup match and a very special goal to win the game....
