Fergie Wouldn't Bet On Treble

Sir Alex Ferguson believes the standard is so much higher than in 1999 that a second treble is very unlikely for United.

As the season progresses, the media are bound to talk about our chances of repeating the legendary treble of 1999, as the team is still in contention in all competitions. However, our fiery Scots played down the possibility of achieving such success again.

'No-one talks about that. It is a possibility but more of an impossibility given the number of games we have,' he said.

'I think the competition in the Premier Division has got harder in the last few years and the standard is better in Europe.'

We all know Fergie: in his eyes, nothing is impossible. I mean, he's the man who led Aberdeen to success in the Cup Winners' Cup, beating Bayern Munich and Real Madrid on the way.

His intention is to prevent his players' head being turned by the constant hype around a possible second treble. If they believed they had a god-given right to do it again, that would be disastrous so Fergie's playing his famous mind games even on his own team...

"Fergie's playing his famous mind games even on his own team... ", and rightly so, I'm fed up of stumbling into a comment about our treble chances wherever I look. Would hate if we did a Leverkusen so forget the treble, concentrate on Rovers.

i honestly think we wont do the trebel i think if we beat chelsea to the premiership then they will beat us in the f.a cup final

he should be openingly backing the team and scaring the crap out of chelsea and put all the pressure on them, and backing the players could give them even more confidence into them that cant be a bad thing
MOYES IS GOD
I agree with you rooneyisgod: they would beat us in the Cup Final. But I still hope that Blackburn might cause a great upset again. Oh, dear Martin Jol, why did you have to take off Lennon and send in Gardner and Mido at the Bridge?!
