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

We'll Score Goals, Says Giggs

Ryan Giggs believes it's only a matter of time until United start scoring as usual but up to that point, he's more than pleased with our defensive hardness.

The champions haven't conceded since the Stone Age and won five straight games, including an away tie at Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League. However, some of the fans are worried because our usual fluence is nowhere to be seen. Giggs asks for patience in this question.

'We're capable of going on a run, and hopefully we're in the middle of that run now,' said Giggs.

'Hopefully we can go on a winning run of 10 or 12 games because we're capable of doing that. We're keeping clean sheets, whether it's 1-0, 2-0 or 5-0. As long as we're not conceding goals, that will give us a great chance of retaining the title.'

As long as we keep clean sheets... hardly the symbol of the Fergie era? United's defence was never viewed as rock-solid but now we approach something like that. No objections of course though I liked the 'score-one-more-strategy' much better.

'We've got a lot of options in attack, but we're also looking very good at the back,' said Giggs about this.

'Defensively, if we keep it tight we know we'll get chances at the other end. The goals will come for us.'

May the prophets speak with your mouth, Ryan.
