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

Old Trafford To Provide Comfort

We have problems with breaking down teams away from home when they park the bus. That should not be denied. Our away record in the league in the past three seasons is excellent because many teams often tried to attack us - a grave mistake if you ask me.

Bolton attacked - for 15 minutes. Unlike Aston Villa who could not resist going forward at every opportunity and therefore ended up heavily beaten despite taking the lead, Bolton just sat back, put ten men behind the ball and we suffered.

That is something Fergie needs to address even though it's true that it was always going to be extremely difficult without Vidic, Scholes, Rooney and Ronaldo. However, now is not the time to lament our away difficulties (which aren't exactly serious, anyway) but to praise the home form.

Sporting, Fulham and Derby visits Old Trafford within two weeks' time and we should rejoice that the team is given such an opportunity to boost their confidence after a setback like the one at Bolton.

Sporting's terrible form and our imperious home record in the Champions League tells me we should win comfortably tonight and it's difficult to imagine Fulham and Derby taking points from Old Trafford.

We've gone on a very good run after the defeat at the council house in August and that's what we need to do now, especially as the Liverpool game is looming. Forget the injuries, forget that it never will be recognised that apart from Newcastle, we have the most - the important thing is that we know we have the depth to deal with them, we know full well that despite Rooney's had his second injury in a matter of months, we are comfortably through in the Champions League and keep the pace with Arsenal who seem to have encountered no real problems until Hleb's injury. (They missed van Persie but Fabregas's goals made it up for it)

So, the lads should not waste the advantages of home comfort provided to them now and we should travel to Liverpool with the knowledge that we've reacted well to a defeat again.
