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

Rooney Relies On The Oldies

United take on Fulham tomorrow with the prospect of opening a nine-point gap on Chelsea and Wayne Rooney reckons our experienced bunch of players could prove vital in the race.

Chelsea are out of league action as they lock horns with Arsenal in the Carling Cup final so a victory at Craven Cottage could put the pressure on them as they will not play in the league until next Saturday.

However, Sir Alex Ferguson refused to get carried away by the prospect of winning the title and Rooney shares his view. Of course, the young striker's mind is set on performing well on the run-in to the finish and reckons our experienced players could do an awful lot to hold off Chelsea.

'Their experience will be vital for us,' he told MUTV, referring to Giggs, Solskjaer, Scholes and Gary Neville.

'They have been there and done it all before. It gives young players like myself and Cristiano Ronaldo someone to look up and see how they are coping with the situation. Hopefully then we can do the same.'

'There has always been confidence and belief in the team,' he said.

'We know we are getting towards the end of the season but we just have to keep on doing what we have been up to this point.

'We do not want to throw away the lead we have got. We have to try and win all our games. If we do that, we will be okay.'

I still think we would collapse sooner or later. I always fear for us though we have to win only 9 out of 11 to be champions - if Chelsea win all their games. If they drop points, then it's enough if we win only 7 or 8.

Chelsea will drop points. Their squad is not deep enough (Dont ask me how having spent 300 million on it!) you have the right mix of youth and experience, its your title to throw away.
