Fergie Blames Lack Of Concentration

Fergie Blames Lack Of Concentration

United manager Alex Ferguson believes his side could have won but for lapses in concentration.

We went forward twice of course only to be pegged back due to absolutely silly defensive errors. And Fergie was apparently very angry about having to settle for a point because of them.

'We thought we had done enough to win it, but that's football and I cannot believe that we threw it away at the end,' he asid

'It was a lack of concentration on both goals. On their first one we should have cleared the ball away for a corner but didn't. We lost our bearings.

'I think we played well, had lots of good possession and had the better chances. We controlled the game but at the end for their second goal, the cross got the faintest of touches and they scored.'


Oh, that second goal... hopefully this was the last occasion we lose points because of extreme defensive stupidity this season.

Whatever he meant, he's right. Stats show that Arsenal are awfully great in the last 15 minutes of games. That should be our greatest strength, hey!
