Fergie Focused On Arsenal

Fergie Focused On Arsenal

Sir Alex Ferguson was delighted with his players after yesterday's 3-1 win over Aston Villa but he's now focused on the next, presumably a lot tougher test.

The Reds visit Emirates Stadium for the first time in its existence but Fergie does not have time for historical moments as he wants his players to treat this as just another game.

'We want to go to Arsenal and get the result we want. That is the only thing we can think about,' he said.

'This is another one on our list of games. We now have 15 left.

The Reds were absolutely superior against Villa but Fergie's not prone to overpraise his side.

'We did the sensible things well, like keeping possession at the right time. The good thing is we are creating chances and scoring goals.'

'It is good for Carrick and Park as well to get goals. We now have quite a few scorers in our ranks, which is pleasing. We are just waiting for Gary Neville to come up with one!'

And let me add, I believe Brown and Heinze are both without a goal yet, not to mention Alan Smith. It would be fun to see all our outfield players score at least one goal during the season.

United fans expect more than one goal from Wayne Rooney but Fergie is not concerned with the youngster's lack of form.

'He needs a goal to give him confidence.

'But he is working hard and enjoying his football. I have no concerns about him. There was good penetartion by us and good passing up front.

'Henrik Larsson had another marvellous game. His link-up play is fantastic as is his movement.'

I think Larsson had a fantastic 15 minutes then disappeared but I don't want to argue with the boss. Hopefully he'll be right about Rooney.

You wish. You couldn't do it at your house the first time we met. What makes you think it will be different this time around. If you don't know you better ask somebody, man.... oh .. say... a certain merseyside team in red.
14/01/2007 16:03:00
That certain team are *****e while we are good. Anyway, we beat you in April at Old Trafford and you defeated us there 5 months later so anything can happen in football. Anyway, this time we'll have Vidic and Giggs while you won't have Gilberto, and Adebayor won't play. Henry was useless against us in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 and we know him, unlike Adebayor. And I'm sure this time O'Shea won't start in midfield for us. That's what make us think we'll defeat your team.

And I'd rather ask a certain United team in Sheffield :-)
14/01/2007 16:09:00
As the saying goes , "the sun will shine on a dog's ***s once in a while", so shelf the wisecrack about Sheffield. As I recall you didn't exactly lit up the ground against West Ham now did you? Psst. You forgot the thunderbolt Henry scored against you in '04. BTW we aren't going to whine on about who was and who is or isn't going to be there , we got enough technicians for this battle -JUST A GOOD OLD FASHIONED BUTT WHIPPING AND A TUTELAGE IN FLUID ATTACKING FOOTBALL TO BOOT, THAT'S ALL. HAHAHAHAHA. IT SHOULD BE A GOOD ONE.

there is no way you're going to walk away with a win, even getting a point will be very hard, and even without Gilberto, our team is better than your's. but your team is playing with such confidence, that they are getting results week in week out. but this i feel will be your toughest test so far this season. and the way we are playing right now, it is next to impossible to stop us. but it's going to be a cracker, can't wait for it, one long week to go, damnnnnnnnn..
14/01/2007 18:36:00
should be a good game, hard to call, ronaldo is firing... i reckon a draw will be on the cards myself.
14/01/2007 19:52:00
ha ha that is the funiest thing i have seen your team better then ours. you think cause you got your depressed striker back your good . look at the point difference if you had a better team you would be up there with us but you aint. and as for the way you are playign you been going on runs all season the you end up slipping up and you will again on sunday.
14/01/2007 21:04:00
i'm a gooner . we're gonna beat you, we're not going to win the league, just make sure the chavs don't..........
15/01/2007 00:09:00
If u ask me you were lucky to score a couple of the goals u did against Villa. I don't think Arsenal will gift u like Villa did.. and if Arsenal end up winning the game it's going to be a nail-biting remainder of the season!
