Sir Alex – “We have a stronger squad now”

Sir Alex with clenched fistsIt would appear Sir Alex Ferguson also believes we have a stronger squad now than we did in 1999.

In a interview posted by ITV.com, Sir Alex outlines how the options available to him today far outweigh those available to him back then.

Here’s the full story.

The Good, The Bad & The Omen

Tag: Manchester United,Opinion Piece @ 9:06 pm

Welbeck scores - Real Madrid v Manchester UnitedAlmost 24hrs on and I still can’t help feeling we missed a golden chance to put one foot in the next round of the Champions League before Ronaldo & Co even set foot on English soil.

The good news is….We Scored. Yes 1-1 is a good result but unlike many I’ve spoke to today I wouldn’t have taken 1-1 before kickoff, no way. I tipped up 2-2, I’d have taken that. The bad news is….Mr Mourihno’s bullish comment about how his team are capable of scoring more than one at Old Trafford was accurate, and if they do that we’re immediately in need of a win…..advantage Madrid.

Win 2 tickets to see the 2nd leg at Old Trafford.

We’re in form, our strength this season is scoring goals. What did we need to do last night? Score, the more the better. Did we really attempt to play to our strengths last night? I don’t think we did to be honest.

The worst United squad ever

Tag: Manchester United,Opinion Piece @ 8:37 am

United Squad 12-13This is the worst squad United have ever had, it’s the worst team United have ever fielded, Sir Alex doesn’t have a clue what he’s doing and it’s the beginning of the end for Manchester United as they steadily decline into the abyss.

What a load of total old bollocks! We’ve made our best start to a Premier League season, we’ve accrued more points now than at the same point in any other Premier League season and scored more goals than at this point in 1999….where does all this nonsense come from? Why are so many people of that opinion? Why is evolution going unrecognised?

Why do I mention 1999? Well, obviously it’s the greatest year in our history so it should always be the barometer, but never the minimum expectation. If you examine 98/99 you’ll see some startling reasons why people are tempted to get carried away with our current situation, make comparisons and even suggest we’re better now than we were then!

Nevermind Madrid, United have learnt Everton lesson

Tag: Manchester United @ 6:42 pm

Pessimism was indeed very palpable in many United fans today, wary of the necessity to make the most of the defeat suffered by City yesterday, while the importance and the implications of a trip to Madrid on Wednesday loomed large on the horizon.

If you didn’t read then, we hope it’ll be a fitting tribute to the Babes, if you had already read it hopefully you’ll still find it poignant.
