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

Fergie Loves Our Attacking Football

Sir Alex Ferguson was thrilled with the quality of United's forwards after the 4-0 win over Dynamo Kiev.

Carlos Tevez, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo were all on target again and it's increasingly difficult to remember how we were struggling for goals at the start of the season.

No wonder Fergie was praising his side unreservedly though one might add that yesterday night's performance was far from United's best but it was more than enough.

'The great thing about this team is that they are always capable of creating chances, either through individual ability or good combination play,' he said.

'There is never a moment in any game when you feel that we have reached a dead end in terms of imagination and creativity.'

'We have so many players capable of a moment of brilliance. It doesn't matter whether the opposition is playing three at the back or 20 at the back.'

Apart from the little problem that the first two months of our season was about hitting dead ends in terms of creativity and imagination, he's dead right. Now we only have to win the group to avoid the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Milan and Inter and end up in the altogether more pleasing company of Rosenborg, Sevilla or Fenerbahce.

'We have to try to make sure of that,' Fergie said. 'We experimented last season and nearly got embarrassed but we won't do that again. If we win against Sporting Lisbon in our next game, that will do it.'

So don't expect to see the intimidating Dong-Campbell strike partnership against the Lisbon side in spite of our successful qualification.

'There is never a moment in any game when you feel that we have reached a dead end in terms of imagination and creativity.' Well...if you have loads of imagination and happen to be severely deluded, then he's more or less right I guess.
