Feeling Sorry For Themselves?

Sir Alex Ferguson is confident his players have now made a full recovery from their European exit.

Boxing Day's 3-0 defeat of West Brom at Old Trafford was their seventh win in eight Barclays Premiership outings and crucially a fourth victory in five matches in all competitions since the crushing defeat to Benfica on December 7 that dumped the Red Devils out of the Champions League.

Ferguson: 'The result against Benfica was a killer but we have turned it around and hopefully we are now out of that bad spell. Our players do not like losing and what happened in Lisbon was not something they expected.

'We are on a good run now and while it is frustrating we are not getting a break in terms of Chelsea's results, all we can do is keep winning for our own pride and our own supporters.

'If Chelsea do slip up we want to be the nearest team to them.'

The only reason Chelsea are good now is only because of abramovic's money, without the money they wouldn't of won anything, which is a quote off former Gunner and fellow Manc Lee Dixon. Chelsea have cheated their way to success. Everyone keeps saying that Man Utd have also bought their way to success, but they had to build a team, win, we didn't need a billionaire to help them become the premiership champions.
