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

Fergie Wants Another Charge

Sir Alex Ferguson stated the defeat at West Ham was not down to mental issues. The United boss thinks these hiccups happen sometimes but we still have a great chance.

'The result was nothing to do with nerve,' said the United boss. 'These things happen. We just have to gather ourselves and start another charge.

'We are still two points clear. The title is not decided in December.'

'It's not been a great day in the sense that Chelsea have come from behind, which is a bit of luck for them.

'But I'm not sure they are on a charge.

'It was a result they have clawed out of nothing, but we have got to show our resolve as well. That is the hallmark of champions. We have proved that many times in the past.'

That's the point, Fergie. We should prove it now, for Chelsea undoubtedly have that priceless quality. Still, the Scot feels United performed well.

We played some fantastic football but I think our finishing could have been better,' he told Sky Sports.

'We had some great opportunities but maybe our decision making and patience let us down. But I'm happy with the performance, we didn't deserve to lose.

Honestly, which game did he watch? When did we play fantastic football? It's true our finishing let us down, we couldn't score from any of our TWO clear-cut opportunities.

I'll attribute his words to the intent of boosting the team's morale and thus I forgive him for saying things which are not true. Hopefully his ploy will work and we'll start a magnificent run again.
